“Sleeping in Mud”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Always great to stay at the Mud Hut (a couple of times now). Apart from the great service, spacious and clean rooms, I really like the fact that it is surrounded by a 2m high wall with cameras monitoring access. This makes me feel more comfy when you are leaving the vehicle alone (whilst attending the Opal Inn for a couple, and off to Tom & Mary's for dinner) with gear hanging off of it. You want it to be there in the morning.

Room Tip: Book early. Very popular.

We are regular visitors to the Mud Hut and look forward to each and every stay secure in the knowledge that our room will be immaculately clean, the sheets and towels good quality and the hospitality tray well stocked with tea, coffee and biscuits.
Breakfast is either delivered to your room or may be taken in the dining room. As expected, all the ingredients are of the best quality and very well cooked and presented.
The Mud Hut is a true asset to Coober Pedy and the sole reason we stay in the town. This is easily one of Australia’s best and affordable motels.

Room Tip: Book ahead if you wish to stay here, even in the off-tourist season.

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.
