“Clean and comfortable old style apartments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Stayed in two bedroom apartment in October 2012. Apartment was clean and comfortable old style accomodation. Free wifi was a nice touch. No oven, dishwasher or washing machine in the apartment, (although there is a guest coin laundry ) I know this is the outback but for $250.00 a night apartment assumed these things were standard.

Room Tip: No washing machine oven or dishwasher in the apartments.

Beautifully looked after and very friendly staff. Rooms a very quiet as the rammed earth walls are so thick and also keep the room beautifully insulated. Dinner is not served in dining room but a very comprehensive list of town restaurants is provided in the room with full menus and prices. Beds perfect, rooms spotless and quite large. Very large modern bathroom The quality is enforced by the fact they were fully booked out for the total time I was there.

Stayed here back in 2007 for a couple of nights and enjoyed the laid-back and down to earch atmosphere in combiantion with the outback feeling. You don't pay the rediculous prices of underground places but get comfortable and clean rooms (standard but nothing wrong with it) which are positioned in a classic U-shape. People are friendly and the breakfast we had as nice as well. All in all perfect midrange option!

The comfortable rooms, free wifi, excellent breakfasts, and extremely helpful staff make this an excellent motel. We stayed four nights [in two blocks of two a week apart] and were delighted with the place.

Lovely and clean accommodation and very friendly staff. Reasonably priced and even though we stayed two nights the room was cleaned etc during the second day. Staff at reception very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for all the best activities that Coober Pedy had to offer. We travelled in winter and even though very cold outside the rooms where unexpectedly warm.

The Mud Hut is the best above ground alternative to being underground in Coober Pedy!

It is the best and friendliest Motel / Hotel in Coober Pedy and to boot they offer 4WD car hire. The rooms are well appointed, very well maintained and pleasant to stay in. Also the prices are very fair in an environment that can be costly just because accommodation is often hard to find.

To sum up The Mud Hut is the best place to stay in Coober Pedy.

Room Tip: They are all good. The original rooms are more interesting.

The Mud Hut was booked out from the next day so we were lucky to get a vacancy.

The room was a good size with a queen bed plus a single. It had a decent sized bathroom and a table and chairs for dining.
I only noticed next morning that there was an electric blanket on the bed but hadn't even realised it.
There is an airconditioner but it is for cooling only not for heating.

It was an easy walk accross the street to the hotel for tea and close to shops

Room Tip: ask to see the rooms as the first one we saw had only beds and didn't have a dining table and ch...
