“Top Hotel ! Top Service !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2008

I had a great time at the Underground Hotel.
Mike, who runs this hotel is a top host
as well as guide. He will direct you to the
most appropriate services in town and even
give you a lift ! He will even advise on tours.
I found his help to be 105% above my
expectations.

The hotel is immaculately clean. Everything
to the last detail. It is dust free, the rooms
are pleasant and the shower/kitchen facilities
are fantastic also.

Just make sure that if you do walk at night
you bring a torch as some of the streets
near by are quite dim at night.

Otherwize, enjoy your fantastic accomodation.
Sit outside and watch the landscape as it changes,
cook yourself a meal in the kitchen or have a yarn
with Mike who is guaranteed to give you the
"local view" on everything.

Thank you Mike ! And thank you Undeground Hotel
for making my stay at Coober Pedy EXCELLENT
in all respects.

Very, very clean. Awesome rates. Tastefully decorated. My husband, 3 young children and I were very pleased with our stay. We would (and already have) recommend this hotel to anyone visiting or traveling through Coober Pedy. Our only complaint was that it was a bit warm in our room, but then again, it was January in Australia.

  • Liked — It was very clean.

we saw this accomodation on the web and sent an email to Mike for a room .unfortunatly only suites were left , and i am glad .
the suites are a little more expensive but worth the money .
the rooms have fridge , microwave, tv, toaster aswell as en suite facilities.all under ground....
mike is an excellent host who is on hand to recommend things to see and do .he recommended places to eat at night - both of which were good and value for money.
we drove of road , on a dirt track to the dog fence and then around to see the salt and pepper hills and mikes timing was spot on.

we went to the under ground church and down two mines , one working and one show , all facinating stuff

the motel is slightly out of town up a hill which means breakfast outside affords a great view of the surrounding areas

we were so plesaed to have made the effort to drive from Adelaide and to have dicovered this gem of a place

  • Liked — friedly informative staff
