radeka was a great place to stay in coober pedy, to keep out of the heat and also sleep inside a rock... it's a great experience that was thoroughly enjoyed, and not expensive either. i would happily go back to coober pedy and to radeka.

Room tip: splurge and get your own room.

The family and I spent a couple of nights in the motel rooms at the Radeka in Jan 2013. This was unique experience which made the 12 hour drive from Renmark worthwhile. Nothing is too much for Martin (Manager) who really made our stay remarkable. The rooms were extremely clean and (thankfully) wonderfully cool. Dont forget to have to have a drink at the motels underground bar.

Martin and the young lady at the desk made our stay in Coober Pedy feel like staying with an old friend. We were given all the information we needed and more - Martin helped us with our tent and was always looking out for our enjoyment and safety.

The rooms were a luxury after camping in above ground heat for a few days.

We arrived at the Radeka after a long journey down from Northern Queensland, via Birdsville and Lake Eyre. We were immediately impressed by Martin Smith the Manager who is a wealth of knowledge and always took time to point out things of interest and how to get the best out of our 2 night stay in Coober Pedy. The rooms are well furnished and clean and obviously cool becuase they are underground. Martin has good facilities for the weary traveller..a good laundry and a good bar and a great Opal shop where you can buy from cheap as Opal chips to several thousand $ Opals and Martin has good knowledge of what Opal is all about and its varieties. He always took time to have a beer with the custoimers at the end of the day and told us the best places to go for brekkie and dinner. We ate at both The Desert Cave for Breakfast and had dinners at Johns Pizza place (just over the road) which was excellent-best steak i have had in a while. We also went to Tom and Mary's Greek Taverna-food great as well but dont expect to find a Tom or a Mary-some welsh guy owns it and he is no Tom Jones! All in all good value , great service and if a place as rugged as Coober Pedy can make you happy which it certainly did with our oparty then stay at the Radeka-it is an experience.

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.
