A very pleasant one night stay, en route further north. The room was a good size, well maintained and sufficient shower and washing facilities. The kitchen had tea/coffee making all day, and breakfast supplies were good. Free internet was an added bonus!

My wife and I stopped in for a night en route to Adelaide after a week on the road and this place exceeded our expectations. Initial thoughts on Coober Pedy were not too flash but after checking in to the Underground Motel we settled in after cooking in the excellent common kitchen and were blown away by the clean rooms...

We rocked up at almost 11pm after a very hot drive up from Adelaide. At was 33C outside and we were lucky enough to find one of the staff sitting outside just before finishing his shift (else we would have had to camp out or drive through). Despite not having a booking and barging in on the end of his... More

From my initial phone call with ken I knew we had found a place that was going to be helpful and friendly. We arrived to discover a beautiful, well appointed, well set up accommodation. We loved the shared lounge and two dining areas: a kitchenette and a BBQ area. Our room was lovely and felt very " homely". Many thanks... More

Sleeping underground is definitely an incredible experience. But it's even better when the owner is so nice, the breakfast is complimentary, the rooms are very clean... We had a fantastic time in your hotel, thank you for your kindness!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month and what an enjoyable experience it was. Hosts Mike and Mercy were such easy-going, friendly folk that we wished we could have stayed much longer. Well-informed too on all the local must-do's. High quality rooms too (we appreciated the upgrade!), giving the iconic Coober Pedy underground living experience. The town centre... More

We (myself and 3 friends) drove from Adelaide and stayed in the Underground for 2 nights to attend a friend's 30th birthday in Coober Pedy. The motel was well priced, clean and tidy with fantastic views but the best thing about this motel is the owner. She is super friendly and sooo helpful! She dropped us in town both nights... More

Hi This property would have to be the most organised and cleanest motel I have ever experienced. The lady at reception was great nothing was too much trouble, she even lent her car to us to drive to town as ours had a very large trailer attached. Very unique, very well done highly recomended.
