Comfortable stop over, edge of town though short walk to shops, toaster in room would have been good as early rise. Not cheap but all accommodation in Coober Pedy appeared pricey. If disabled be aware upstairs.

Inconvenient for cash customers

4 out of 5
by from Riverland SA.
Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: My wife and I appreciated the service provided by your efficient staff
Cons: Create and implement a 'damage recovery system' which does not obligate customers to place their bank savings at risk
Location: Service provided by indigenous staff was impressive.
My bank asks me not to reveal details of my bank card under any circumstances. Consequently I am a cash customer because I will not compromise my right to hard-rock security.stance.

Pros: Location, rooms and staff.
Location: Good location near the highway. We didn't do anything nearby.
We were just passing through Coober Pedy on our way north (to Mount Dare), so we didn't spend much time here. It was a very pleasant hotel with nice staff and good food.
