Things don't always go to plan and yes the TV remote didn't work the TV set, but what this guest hasn't said is that within an hour of being notified, we had replaced the TV within another unit that worked perfectly. It would be nice if reviews presented the whole story and gave us credit for responding in a timely manner.

Would not recommend, communication with owners is poor as no one on site, walked into room and first thing you see is a massive hole in the rock wall where randomly bits of dirt fall out of did question if the whole thing was going to fall in, beds where rock hard could count the springs that you where laying on.

The beds were terrible, especially the single beds. The place is run down and tired. The free wifi never worked, the screen door acraped the ground every time it was opened or closed.

Disappointed. Place was not clean, beds are rock hard (except 1) furniture old and uncomfortable, and not enough cutlery for 5 people that we booked for. Free wifi does not work. Password provided was incorrect.

Experience a half - dug out (with windows) on ground level, when all you want is a good sleep.

We got in late in the day, but the management is across this scenario already. I’d received an email with welcoming information and information about how to access our room. It was very comforting knowing we were being thought of and our pending stay had been considered. I’ve lived in Coober Pedy, many years ago, and the Desert View apartments were much better than I expected.
