“Find true Australian hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We arrived in Coober Pedy on 1 January 2014 in the heat of the summer and this was a true oasis! Ken and Ana are fantastic, amazingly hospitable and helpful. They make Underground Bed & Breakfast a unique experience: an underground accommodation (a really wonderful experience), a cozy, clean, quiet and comfortable place like very few (if any) in the world! We have no doubt that this is the best possible accommodation in Coober Pedy. Moreover, this is a place you have to see and experience at least once in your life! We already have plans to return there when we'll have another holiday :-) Strongly recommended!

Room Tip: Let Ana or Ken what you'll like and it is all good!

Ken and Ana are amazing hosts. They indeed have a beautiful B&B. It was a perfect place to unwind after a long day of driving from Adelaide on our way to Darwin. Modern stylings and decor. Extremely clean and well maintained. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Coober Pedy!

I decided to stay here on our transit through to Adelaide. I was by far the best place i have stayed out of all the places i have stayed in Australia thus far. The service and advice on local place to eat were spot on. It was like a home away from home. The underground lounge was very inviting and homely. We had our 15month old and he had a ball there. Anna and Ken were excellent hosts so welcoming and easy to talk to. One of the days we stayed there it was 45deg but it was still cool and comfortable sleep which made the 5am start so much easier.
Can't wait stay there next time we will have to spend a little more time there i think as it was really really good. Well Done to Ken and Anna on their awards as they defiantly live up to them.
Also the photo's online don't do the place justice as it is way more majestic than it looks online.

We opted to stay here on our way to and from Uluru. After searching for underground accommodation in the various hotels but being put off after questionable reviews for many of them we chanced upon Ken & Ana's b&b. The reviews were fantastic and the pictures looked amazing - could it be too good to be true? In a word...NO!! From the second we called to make a booking we were impressed by the friendliness and on arrival - well, quite simply we were blown away by what we saw. Ana and Ken were born to this trade and are two of the most friendly, welcoming people we have ever encountered. As for the accommodation - incredibly comfortable, spotlessly clean and absolutely everything you could possibly think of needing is at your fingertips. We had all of Area 1 as there were 6 of us and it was simply perfect. The BBQ and hot-tub area is the icing on the cake and exactly what the doctor ordered after a mind-numbing drive of 9 hours from Adelaide - not to mention the pitch dark when the light goes out and you can slip into a deep, comfortable sleep. We were sad to leave in the morning to continue our journey north to Uluru - especially when we saw the accommodation we were met with up there - and absolutely delighted to return the following night on our return trip to Adelaide! Both sets of our parents return to the UK this Monday with very fond memories of Coober Pedy and the welcome we received - and as for Alan and myself - well, we are already planning our next trip to the Underground B&B!!! Thank you Ken and Ana for a spectacular experience!!!!!

We went to Coober Pedy on 25/12/2013 and Ken and Anna greeted us with big smiles and a warm welcome. The underground room was amazingly cool (with outside temps getting above 35 at times) and very dark at night (helped us get a great night's sleep!). We did the Painted desert tour the next day and it was great to see wild life in their natural habitat! The painted desert was beautiful with views of the flat lands as far as you could see. Slighty expensive but about the same with other tour providers. Still highly recommend going out to the outback. Morning tea with Ken's homemade lamingtons and a yummy lunch was provided too. We finished the tour early so had enough time to chill out in their lovely B&B with full kitchen facilities, TV, and movies. Thank you for such an amazing experience, Ken and Anna. Still can't believe we were 9m underground!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. We stayed in the one with an ensuite. Just for added comfort.

Outstanding accommodation. Definitely the best place I have ever stayed in the whole world. The rooms were beautiful, the service was fantastic and the value is unbelievable. Ken and Ana are excellent hosts and are deserving of all their awards and great reviews.

Ken and Ana welcomed our family with generosity and humour, keeping our boisterous boys amused with noodling for opals and the spa. Nothing was too much to ask. Despite the rain, we had 2 great nights and a gentle relax on our journey through the Red Centre. Kids loved their mine experience and Ken's tales of his travels.
