We stayed in the caravan park attached to Opal Inn for two nights. A powered site cost $31.50 with concessions. Amenities were excellent. Service was first class and service staff were very friendly. We were given a generous collection of discount vouchers for meals, fuel, tours, etc. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and would certainly stay there again.

After a long drive to Coober Pedy and a look at some of the attractions, we called at the Opal for lunch. There was a choice of around 6 mains, all for $15 only. A generous serve and lovely hot chips. We were the only couple which felt a bit strange in a large dining room, Enjoyable all the same.

Three night stay in upstairs room, old tired and dated, however bed was comfortable but too small (double just doesn't cut it when you are 190cms.). My normal preference was booked out but will return to that one next time. Car parking is bloody hopeless, all over the place and the corellas in the trees very annoying at 5am with... More

Staying for one night on a return journey from the top end, we decided to try a different motel in Coober Pedy and I'm sorry we did. This hotel was way over priced. The rooms were very basic and having booked in advance we were then unable to get the cheaper walk in rate which was almost $20 per room... More

We dined at the Opal Inn for the annual Coober Pedy Races event, and there was a special buffet dinner provided (with entertainment). The $35 cover price included the most fantastic display of dishes ever! Beautifully styled and artistically carved food items (watermelon, oranges, other melons and fruits) created a spectacular focal point for the buffet. Whilst the standard fare... More

This park has everything going for it. Clean...friendly operators. We found everything was top notch. The onlything that needs attention isthe parking part. Youfindyouown spot and because spots are not markedit becomes quite confusing

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Alice, and choose to stay again on our return trip. No issues at all. Ate in the restaurant both times - food was tasty and very generous portions. Easy walking distance to town.

We stayed here two nights in early Feb.15 The hotel is dated, the A/C was useless. The whole area around is HOT and dusty, its a convenient stopover. The staff we encountered at hotel were helpful and friendly. The computer in lobby didn't work during our stay
