The room was amazing! Very clean and staff was friendly. 100% great experience with the lookout cave. The environment in both room and public area was clean and comfortable. Nice outdoor setting good for relaxing. Even a trampoline!

Great Cooper Pedy experience, unlike some other places, this one is FULLY underground, the whole thing is a cave and not just portions of it. Owner was friendly and gave us a good dinner recommendation. Rooms clean and nice.

We arrived late to a friendly welcome and helpful advise on where to get a late dinner. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed for the price (which was very reasonable). I would recommend this hotel to the weary traveler looking for a place to lay their head. The rooms are dark and sleep came easy.

Stayed one night going up to Uluru and again on the way back because it met all of our expectations. Covered car park, cleanliness, great views from above, local knowledge on sites and restaurants was great. Thanks to the friendly Nick and Sam.

We booked our stay based on the Tripadvisor rating and weren't disappointed. We stayed at another similar underground hotel the night before and felt that The Lookout Cave Underground Motel was a nicer hotel for a similar cost. The room was large and comfortable. The owner was very pleasant and provided recommendations for restaurants and sites. There was adequate parking... More

The family who own the Hotel were nothing but accommodating and extremely friendly and knowledgeable about Coober Pedy...and believe it or not, it was heaven not having mobile reception in... More

Stayed in a twin room for one night on the way through. Loved this place. Room was charming, well designed, clean and the perfect temperature. Staff were equally charming and helpful about how to make the most of our very quick stopover. Reasonable price, would recommend to anyone.

We had a great stop in Coober Pedy on our way from Uluru to Adelaide, thanks to the lookout cave underground hotel. The rooms are great and ver comfortable. The staff are helpful and very friendly. The only thing was that the room did get quite warm as there was no air conditioning (it was January and still much cooler... More
