We stayed in an underground room and loved it! The bathroom needed a little upgrading, and the tiling finished, however this was not an issue as we loved the whole experience.
Breakfast Tip: Make sure you visit their cafe for breakfast. $15 per person for a continental breakfast, perfect.

Room Tip: An underground room for sure!

Large room,with all you need.
There is an underground shop,and displays of how opals are mined,and the history of the area.
Cafe close at hand. Bar and happy hour at night.

My room was upstairs and overlooked the side street which was very quiet. The room was HUGE, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was a challenge. The shower whilst hot fluctuated between scalding and freezing with a few seconds of good temperature and given that water is so very precious in this outback town it would be a good idea if they were able to pre-set the water temperature. This was not my first stay in the Desert cave and I had the exact same problem but in a different room. There was also a very strong smell of floral air freshener both in the room and outside in the landing which took some time to disperse after I opened the sliding door to the balcony. On a more positive note the curtains at the sliding door had a very goo overlap -no gaping in the middle, and fell all the way to the floor, the block-out on these curtains was excellent and during summer they would be a god send.

Room Tip: request a quiet room

Stayed in one of the underground rooms, room was super clean with all expected amenities for a large hotel. Front office staff were helpful. Swimming pool was clean, pool towels available. Underground display of opal mining and highway construction was informative. Lounge bar was comfortable with small sitting rooms as well as the main bar area. Cafe had great food and coffee was really good, breakfast was tasty with wide menu. Offer tours from the hotel if you don't want to venture far on your own.

We stayed their for 2 days.We had average experience with the hospitality. Hotel location is perfect, room ambience and cleanliness was excellent. Before going to Coober pedy I will suggest please check everything on Internet website about tourist attractions coz front desk is not enough knowledgeable to guide they will suggest the same. They have two restaurants one which is for breakfast and lunch is very good, staff @ both the restaurant are very helpful and friendly. Specility restaurant which is only for Dinner has good ambience, however menu is very short and overpriced compare to the quality and taste of the food. We really had memorable experience of cave rooms and had lovely trip. Coober pedy is really nice place to visit for short vacation.
