I stayed in Radeka's Underground Motel last week and it exceeded my expectations in every way.
The owner Martin provides a very warm and friendly welcome and is keen to offer suggestions on what to see and do in Coober Pedy. It was great to recieve this outsanding service after receiving snobby and rude service at Yulara (Ayers Rock). Martin takes great pride in his property and it is extremely clean and well presented.
I stayed in a underground room (6.5m underground) and it was the best sleep I had on my holiday. When it's 40 degrees above ground and 20 degrees below ground you'll understand why! The shared bathroom was very clean as well.
If I am ever back in Coober Pedy I would have no hesitation in staying here again. The town has so much to see and do and a trip out to the Breakaways and moon plain was fantastic - Martin offers these tours from the motel as well.
Congratulations Martin on your property and I wish you every success in the future, Phil.
