We stayed in a tent site. Very small area. No grass. Toilets closed between. 10am and 3pm for cleaning which seems excessive. Several toilets don't flush. Camp kitchen is just a sink. Positive points were the location which is middle of town and walking distance to most things, easy to get a tent peg in ground, pretty good laundry.

The room was clean with a comfortable bed. Everything in it was very old especially the small couch which had tears in it. It took a very long time to get the hot water running - over 5 minutes! I have to say I found the quality very poor for the prices being asked. I would avoid this place if... More

Stayed in the budget motel section at $90/ night for a shared twin room with private facilities (compared to $145 for the main motel rooms). Very comfortable and perfect for our needs. Good shower and tea/coffee making facilities. Priced low for the tightness of the room and dated furnishings, but there is a shared courtyard. Better than camping in a... More

This caravan park is lovely and clean, the amenities are in very good order and kept very clean. The 20c x 4 minutes for a showers is a great idea to save water - you can spend 40c but it makes it a long shower. This park is close to town so it is good for walking if you wish.

The Opal Inn is conveniently placed just opposite the Shell garage as you enter the town, and it's close to the excellent Greek restaurant (Tom and Mary's) which was sadly closed for the summer. But it's really boring. OK price, with a summer offer at $110, but no character, lots of dogs and a few drunks hanging around, boring and... More

The staff in the hotel where you book and pay are lovely. I did not enter the hotel beyond reception. The caravan park to the rear of the property is situated on the corners of busy roads, busy not like a city, but instead huge trucks rumble past at night just when you are trying to get to sleep.

Stayed here for three nights and found the amenities clean, no water to vans but water was availible for drinking. We use our van tanks for the time we were there. Water is precious in Coober Pedy! The staff were friendly and helpful to book local tours.

Have stayed here a few times now and always comfortable. This time seems like new team running the motel and restaurant and seems much improved and very friendly. Bistro meal good value and worth a visit as staff friendly and food nice. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
