Our family had a wonderful stay in a very nicely updated family room at the Lookout Cave Motel. We loved staying underground, that was an experience in itself. We liked going out for dinner and then heading back to the lovely room for a night's rest!

We booked the Doggers Cave for 2 nights on the 5th and the 6th of November This accomodation, which has self contained apartments as well as motel rooms underground, sits at the top of a hill overlooking Cobber Pedy The owner greeted us when we checked in, and as part of his welcome, he pulled out a map and made a lot of suggestions about what to see in the town and nearby, as well as letting us know which restaurants and attractions gave discounts when you showed your room key He showed us to our apartment. This self contained apartment was extremely well appointed, and was hand carved with equipment out of the rock to create a fantastic space. An extremely comfortable bed in a seperate bedroom, in a true rock cave. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need to prepare a meal, and there is a comfortable couch with a good aircon in the main room. The bathroom is spectacular and modern with a great walk in shower, which was well received at the end of a day exploring. There are also laundry facilities on site if required, though there is a reasonable charge for this There are steps outside that you can walk up to the top of the hill and get an even better 360 degree view of Coober Pedy and surrounds, which is great for photos and watching the sunset Overall we couldn’t be happier with our decision to stay here and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone

Stayed here on two separate occasions. Both rooms were clean and a nice temperature. Staff very friendly and looking to help. Location is good with it being not far from the big winch bar. It also seems quite secure with it being a bit secluded and away from the Main Street. Would stay here again.

I was here in October 2021. A wonderful underground accommodation experience, spotlessly clean, very comfortable constant temperature. The host could not have been more helpful. The ability to self-cater would have been a bonus but I understand that Covid-19 regulations impacted this service. Highly recommended.

Expected a dusty dugout but what an amazing surprise when you enter the stunning hall with its spectacular colours and patterns. And then you get to your underground room and the beauty continues. Top this all off with beautiful staff and excellent service. A truly lovely experience.
