“A great place to to stay”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Stayed here with our 2 children on the way to Alice Springs and on the way back. A great place to stay with well appointed rooms, friendly service and good breakfasts. Our children liked Swifty the dog who lives here.

A well run family friendly motel. Would highly recommend for travellers in the area.

I could only repeat the last few reviews - Andrew on reception is a real gem and such an asset. This hotel and it's team could really teach the bigger chains a lesson. 'Real' people to greet you - natural and friendly. Added extras in the room: lots of power points, USB charging ports, free wifi, immaculately clean, best value in Coober Pedy, spacious room and bathroom .... I could go on and on .... Just stay here you'll be glad you did.

Brilliant ! Friendly and helpful service, beautiful clean and neat room in excellent condition, big bath room, off street parking, pet friendly, quiet, Air conditioned and heated. Comfy beds. We have stayed many different places in Coober Pedy and Mut Hut is by far the best value ! We will definitely stay again. Thank you for a lovely stay, keep up the great work.

Picked on internet because of price (all accom between Darwin & Adelaide is very expensive) but found the cost worthy on this occasion. The owners have a real asset with the man on reception as he is a real gem. Our grandson treasures the crystal given by this lovely man.
Both rooms we stayed in were good, with everything you could need.
On recommendation from the reception we ate at Johnnys Pizza (twice -it was good -grandson loved it). They rang and arranged a tour of Toms working opal mine (informative) and gave directions to the underground Serbian Church-worth a visit. We also took a drive out to the Breakaways at sunset -spectacular scenery.
Breakfast across the road at the Shell servo is good
Will definitely stay again /a pool would be good but probably not cost effective during the colder months.

Room Tip: All rooms good stayed in one along the back & one in front equally good.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed and the mud bricks add a bit of novelty factor. The wi-fi is free and fresh milk is provided for tea and coffee. A slight negative is that the evaporative air conditioning is quite noisy but I sleep with ear plugs so it didn't bother me. The real highlight of this place though is the friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay. So comfortable and cool. Spacious rooms, large bathroom. There was a microwave, plates, bowls, cups and cutlery. A great set up. The guy on reception so warm and welcoming, loved him! Definitely will be staying there now on our future trips.
