We spent 2 nights here to break up the trip from Port Augusta to Uluru. The owner has very welcoming and had wonderful stories of his 40 odd years in Coober Pedy. His recommendations on how to best spend our time were spot on. Our room was comfortable and very quiet. The view over Coober Pedy was a good introduction... More

I took my 3 daughters there on our outback adventure and had a great 3 nights there. This place is set high on a hill and set into the hill of course. Located about 1 min drive into town and it looks to the west so sunsets are always nice to finish of the day with. Staying underground was something... More

Just ring Nick at the Motel and he is at your service. Pick up and return from airport, drop into Town for great breakfast and dinner, could not be more helpful. Motel clean and well presented. A great place in the middle of nowhere.

There are several underground stay options in Coober Pedy and this time we chose to stay in one which was highly rated on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. From the friendly reception to our booking email, the obliging response when we were forced to bring our booking forward, the warm welcome with tips for what to see and where to... More

I must admit it doesn't look much from the outside but the staff were super friendly and the room was unique and clean so give it a go if your game.. The funny thing about the room was the tiling in the ensuite !!! It must have been by a very drunk tiler or a trained monkey as nothing lined... More

We arrived late by bus into Coober Pedy and were very grateful to have the free transport still waiting for us for the Motel.They were also very helpful making sure we had a very adequate meal delivered to our door. The experience of sleeping underground in constant temperatures is unique.Thank you to all.
