We arrived on the greyhound bus at 5am and were very happy to see Martin (the manager) waiting for us in the Radeka bus. Our room was available (private underground room) so we got an early checkin, which allowed us to catch up on some sleep from the bus!
The room itself was clean and tidy with everything you need and nothing you dont. Having a fridge in the room was a bonus, even though we could have used the communal fridge in the Kitchen.
The Kitchen was always kept very clean and is nice and large, we didn't eat out much in the 3 days were at Coober Pedy so we utilised this kitchen extensively.
I would definitely recommend the Radeka 'Break Away Tour' - its a 4 hour tour that takes you to all the sites around Coober Pedy, it surpassed my expectations (the mine sites, which you need a permit to enter are incredible) and the guide really knew his stuff (thanks Phil!)
Martin was very helpful during our stay in Coober Pedy and the cleaning staff were also very nice. Thank-you Martin and the team at Radeka's - Ben & Marika (Melbourne)
