If you come to Coober Pedy you have to stay underground. We had an amazing couple of nights here on our road trip into the Outback. The location is like nothing you've ever seen before and the B&B has everything you could ever need. Our little boy was blown away at being able to sleep in cave. He plays Minecraft... More

Has everything you would want for that staying underground experience, including an undercover pool. The apartment is large with two bedrooms, a good size living area and a nice dining area and breakfast bar. It is a little south of the city centre and is along a dirt road but you do not need a 4WD to get there. If... More

This place was incredible, I wish we had found it years ago driving through. We took our international visitor with us and she thought it was incredible as well. The pool was excellent for cooling off and our every need was catered for...even being able to grind our own coffee! Great beds, comfy stay. Excellent down to earth hosts, cute... More

Thank you Rose and Alex, we had a perfect stay at coober pedy. The location is convenient and the under earth house is cozy and strongly recommend the big breakfast and BBQ facility. The lovely swimming pool is amazing. Especially in the heart of Australian main land.

Visited with another couple of friends from NSW and enjoyed every minute. Everything was as described and more and we were made extremely welcome. Plenty to see in town even though this was probably not the season to be visiting as the temps were 40 and sometimes plus. Food no problem and rooms just the right temp. Will probably not... More

From arrival we knew this was going to be a great stay. Rosalie the hostess, met us at our car and introduced herself and Squirt the dog. We met Alex the next day. She took us through every room and explained all the amenities. Everything was there, including Internet.

Rose was, and is, the perfect hostess, kind, considerate, helpful and a wonderful source of information. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was even better than we had read about and expected. A haven of comfort with so much provided. Teas, coffees (real coffee too), breads, spreads, juices and cereals. The furnishings were comfortable and fresh. Took time to... More

I think the experience of staying in an underground hotel is a must in Coober Pedy. And Down to Erth is a beauty. It is located a few kilometres out of the centre of town, but is easy to locate. Rose was a fantastic host. The pool would have been wonderful to make use of had the weather been a... More

An oasis after a very long drive. Rose and Alex were friendly but unobtrusive and their place is great. The kids didn't want to leave...in fact, they didn't want to leave the pool! Clean and tidy, along with the unique underground experience. Fantastic!
