Great stopping place, reception staff very helpful. Van parking a bit tight but good enough. Facilities were very clean and overall very comfortable. Restaurant very good for value and quality. Far enough off the highway for less noise and well protected.

The Opal Inn is a value for money hotel in the middle of the South Australian outback. It's convenient and always accommodating our needs. We've always had excellent service and the staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: We like the ground floor - non smoking. This suits our needs.

The hotel was full, but we ate in the restaurant here anyway, as we have stayed here before and it was good.
However this visit was somewhat spoilt by the surly barman, he was neither helpful or friendly and seemed to take offence at our presence. The food was ok and the restaurant was good, its a pity the staff wasn't.

Room Tip: Hotel was full we just used the restaurant.

Hi JackoMiddlesbrough
I'm terribly sorry that you had a poor experience at our bar (and that it has taken me so long to respond).
Do you remember the night (date) so I can investigate further and bring it to the attention of the Manager of that department?
Kind regards

Stayed here for an overnight stay on a trip from Adelaide to NT. Caravan Park is small but adequate. Good amenities and appreciated the bistro on site so didn't have to cook. Insisted on a drive through site as we were leaving early the next day. Suitable for longer stays.No grass - all dirt but water and power good. Central location so can walk to anything,

Hi ZorroAdelaide
Thank you for your feedback.
I like to think that our caravan park is quaint. At the time of your stay we didn't have a fire pit or barbecue facilities so I hope you find your way back and staying with us to take advantage of these. A longer stay is definitely a good option as well: there is a surprising amount to see here.
We don't advertise as having drive thru sites, but we will try our best to accommodate where ever we can.
Kind regards
Ashley - Front Office Manager

I was sent to Coober for work, therefore didn't have to pay for my accommodation - which also means I don't get a choice.

We stayed for 4 nights. The room was clean and what you would expect for a normal motel room.

The shower was terrible, zero pressure! But that's the worst thing about the room.

We went to the restaurant / pub for dinner on the last night.
I ordered a chicken Hawaiian which came with heaaaaps of chips and a salad. It was a fairly decent meal. We also received discount because we were staying there which was a nice surprise.

We ate in the front bar and the staff brought all meals out to us.

Overall fairly good food for the desert and decent prices.
