“Accommodation in Coober Pedy, SA, Australia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Having been travelling around Australia on & off for the last 18 months, this is by far the best value accommodation I have had the pleasure to stay in. The website is honest & truthful, the accommodation is in the centre of town and Martin the manager is a true character and a pleasure to meet, if you want to know anything about the area ask Martin and he will give you the best information and organise tours for you. Excellent.

Room Tip: Go for an underground room!

We stayed at Radeka's while traveling around South Australia. We found Radeka's a great place to stay as Martin the manager was very helpful when we had a little trouble with a with one of our friends who came of his motor cycle. Thanks for all your help Martin.

Room Tip: We stayed in the motel and the under ground rooms.

The accomodation and facilities were all extremely clean and tidy and were better than I was expecting at the price.. The host, Martin, was very hospitable, knowledgable and helpful with directions round town. I would definitely recommend it to budget travellers.

From the prompt pickup from the Airport to the clean, well appointed underground motel rooms, a stay at Radeka's is very good value. The Radeka's Breakaway Tour is also an experience not to be missed. The central location is ideal for fly-in visitors.
