So so different! The publicity photos for once don't lie. Stunning bedroom, comfortable, clean and well appointed. We stayed in an apartment unit which by the owners admission was in need of a refurb. But this did not worry us as it was reasonably priced and suited us fine. We had a look at the other hotel rooms and the... More

Great staff, Lovely room and being underground is an experience in itself. Lots of things to do but the Mailman's Run, whilst a long day, is not to be missed. This motel is ideal for photography, esp sunset & sunrise. Close to town and convenient to local restaurants.

What an absolute delight to stay at The Lookout. Everything about the property was a magical experience. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. The addition of a soap holder would be the finishing touch to an inspiring place to visit. No noise at all in your room allows for the most relaxing sleep in quality bedding, which could easily extend to... More

Just stayed overnight but a lovely clean and friendly stay it was....great effect being underground and the most amazing view of the whole town of Coober Pedy!! Enjoyed the experience.Stayed in a Queen bed and single bed room all facilities were available. the areas around the room were spacious and inviting. Would recommend it completely.

We travelled with 3 friends and stayed in the Queen apartment. It was roomy and comfortable, although the bedrooms did get a bit stuffy with the doors closed. We could have put the air con on as advised by the owner but thought it was not necessary given it was freezing and rainy outside!! Bathroom design was a major letdown... More
