Reviewed 13 August 2017

Excellent place to stay for the night, after a hard day on the road this place has a nice pool to cool down and very good rooms, our room was on the top floor and we had a view out over the opal fields. Went to the Restaurant for dinner very impressed with the food and service.

Stayed: March 2017

I booked a two night three day package through the hotel.

It included an excellent mix of free time and a couple of tours that covered all aspects of Coober Pedy including the geological history, discovery of the first opal, development of the town/mines and characters who have shaped it over that time.

The staff and facilities are excellent.

I highly recommend a trip here!

Underground studio with ensuite - was very nice but the rock walls and ceiling made it quite special. Laundry facilities available, also restaurant & cafe. Informative & interesting viewing gallery underground featuring historical pictures & written dialogue outlining the birth of Coober Pedy as the opal capital. Tarif was $180 for the night. Well worth it - the opinion of both my husband & I

We stayed there for 3 nights and the experience was superb. Got to say that those Sri Lankan boys in the reception are the best. If you need to know what to do, where to eat etc, these boys will help you out.

Love the hotel. If you are staying, 1st thing to do is walk around the hotel. Its lovely.

We all love the underground room experience. Its unique.
