Lookout Cave Motel is a very luxurious way to relish in the ways of Coober Pedy. The beautifully dug out rooms are newly renovated with great finishes! Had a great night stay, room was super clean and the staff were lovely.

Stayed here as we were passing thru on our way to Adelaide. The rooms were phenomenal and the staff were very helpful at giving us information about Coober Pedy and what to do whilst in town. There is also as the name suggests a lookout on top of the motel that you can enjoy a nice sunset with a beer. Short 10 minute walk to the center of town.

A great choice if you want an underground experience. The rooms were well presented, clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and informative for our short stay. The room doors could be a little thicker as a lot of sound escapes them and if you are in the hallway you can hear conversations being had. You get a great view of the township of Cooper Pedy from the lookout above the accommodation.

We stayed at the Lokout Cave apartments several times and enjoyed our stays there every time. Very nice, spatious, clean, convenient underground appartments. Very friendly helpful staff. A very nice feature in this hotel is a lookout, from where you can view sunset over Coober Pedy while enjoying a glass of wine.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a family room. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and well appointed. We loved the experience of staying in an underground room. We were given a warm welcome and lots of information on what to see and do. Would recommend not judging anything in Coober Pedy from how it looks on the outside! Go on a tour, do some noodling and enjoy.
