There is a reason this B&B gets traveller's choice consistently. Our host Ken made us very welcome, helped us out with some sightseeing options in town and gave us the local rundown of the road conditions in the area. He then showed us to our room, with complimentary wine and chocolate, a lovely kitchen and lounge shared with just one... More

I am mildly claustrophobic and was concerned about sleeping/being underground. On the way there I seriously considered sleeping in the car! We were allocated the older part (9 m underground) of the B&B and the moment I walked through the door - I was not worried any more! The place was airy, clean, fresh, spacious and elegantly furnished - making... More

It was a last minute decision to stay here. The owners were away, but Jane (who looked after the place on that weekend) looked after us very well. This property is very well maintained and felt homely Rates – reasonable when compared to other underground accommodation options Cleanliness – very clean Facilities – we had everything we required (ensuite, fully...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Underground B&B. Do yourself a favour and stay with a local who knows the area well. We were provided with very helpful information on what to see and do in Coober Pedy; more than you will find in the tourist brochures. The rooms are large and recently refurbished, very clean, cozy and comfortable.... More

A friendly welcome from Ken. a (lovely) bottle of wine & chockies on arrival. This B&B is not close to the centre of town but is quiet, comfortable, roomy & well equipped. Ken & Ana are a lovely couple, who show genuine outback hospitality which is comforting when things don't go quite right (we suffered a smashed windscreen & a... More

Ken and Ana were the best hosts we have ever encountered. They welcomed us into their home and nothing was too much trouble for them. We are pleased we chose to stay with them and would do again if in the area. Other reviews have said it all and we agree.

Ken and Ana have been the most gracious hosts, their hospitality was second to none. I had heard great things about them but they even exceeded my high expectations. This is a great place to stay, loved the accommodation, extremely clean and well maintained and loved the extras that were provided. Thank you for everything, and if we come to... More

This was the 2nd time I had stayed at the Underground B & B and was every bit as enjoyable as the last. Great hosts and will be staying there again. It's a little way out of Coober Pedy but not a major issue. Enjoyed the drive south of town and must have counted more than 20 Emu.

We travel through Coober quite often for work, and only booked here because our usual motel was booked out. The Desert View was a lovely surprise. It is a little further out from town which means it was quiet. It really does have a lovely desert view. The bedrooms are underground; dark and silent. I had the best sleep. The... More

Magnificent underground experience. My wife was initially very doubtful about staying in "a cave", but was very pleasantly surprised once we arrived. The accommodation provided is simply brilliant. No underground, musty smell (it's very arid in Coober Pedy). It's a full house basically, with bedroom, living area and kitchen (outside, covered), very well stocked with everything you might need. Really... More
