The rooms were actually made with local red dirt mixed with concrete which gave it a lovely homely feel.. exceptionally clean, no dust inside and warm and spacious. We had room service and meals were very generous. Location was good and quiet at night. Owners were very knowledgeable and friendly. A real gem to be honest and I’d definitely stay there again if I go to Coober Pedy - 5 stars

The hotel is well situated close to shops and restaurants. Even though built in the early 90’s it has been impeccably maintained. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped and the staff are friendly and helpful.
