“Excellent and very comfortable accomodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 for a stay in August 2011

Stayed with my husband, two children my mom and her partner. The owners went that "extra" bit further and even showed the kids how to find some opal in the area surrounding the accomodation.
Lots of room, decor beautiful and service was 5 star. Swimming pool on site and even had mobile antenna underground!!

“Loved it, we came for one night and stayed for two.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Sooo much better than staying in a small hotel unit. We loved the extra space and the lounge room. The atmosphere was great and we loved not being in the middle of town. After 5 months on the road we have found the sites just out of town try so much harder to please you. They go the extra mile in many little things, like the lovely Lindt chocolates, the super fluffy towels, the coffee beans and gourmet tea, the comprehensive breakfast, even the lounge suites were super comfy. Nothing worse than a lounge suite that feels like a zillion people and sat on it prior to you. ;-)

“Stay here if at all possible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

This is one of the nicest places you could ever hope to stay. The dugout is completely charming and Rose is the most generous host you ever wish for. The place is spotless and super well equipped. Rose and her husband Alex are just lovely. Thanks for a lovely couple of days Rose.

“Unique haven of comfort and tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

After a very long day driving through the desert from Uluru to Coober Pedy the Down to Erth B&B was a haven of comfort, peace and quiet. Rose and Alex have created a unique B&B in a fascinating part of Australia with great attention to detail, right down to home made jam for breakfast. We enjoyed our one night stay very much and would love to return one day.

“Very homely and inviting, spotless.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Not knowing what to expect, we were wonderfully surprised and loved the experience of our stay at Down to Erth B&B. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, a well stocked fridge and delicious home made jam. Our hosts made us feel so welcome and we just loved the feel of sleeping underground. We were amazed at the construction and great workmanship and especially the cleanliness, and the thoughtfulness with all the little extras that added up to a great stay. thoroughly recommend to everyone.
