The Lookout Cave Underground Motel, Coober Pedy
Service was not friendly at all. As we arrived, dropped by someone external to the hotel we got told the motel usually provides thid service so we asked for the check-out that they please drop us at bus station, we got answered that because we had not asked at time of booking we would get charged extra and they did... then they insisted on a convenient time for them to drop us off even if it was really inconvenient for us, nonethelesd we arrived with 15mins advance and had to wait 35 mind so they were 20 mins late but never got any excuse for that. Eventhough the hotel is nice but a bit far from center we would not recommend it for their lack of service.

Overnight stay underground.
Having not stayed in a below ground motel before , we were very impressed with the Lookout Cave Underground Motel at Coober Pedy. Very well made, quiet and comfortable we were greeted by the manager/ host who was very helpful , recommending the best places to eat...we had a pizza which was very nice. Great view of the town from the top/ roof of the interesting place with opal shops a plenty at reasonable prices. Most enjoyable stay and friendly people.

Was unsure of what to expect when staying underground. Was pleasantly surprised with the facilities on offer, staff were friendly and offered great local knowledge of things to do.

Friendly helpful service from the moment we arrived, we got in a little early with Two little children and the staff made an exception for us to check in.. that “is what hospitality is all about” , amazing room helpful advice. Would love to go back and stay again. 5 Stars
