This hotel complex is quite amazing and almost out of context and in dissonance with the rest of Coober Pedy but it is an alternative for those who do not want to stay in digouts. or go full Coober Pedy style.

Its great to here that you and your family enjoy your stay with us.
I will pass on comments to the our staff and again thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.
