We could not have been made more welcome. After initially being told there was no vacancy, the manager, Nick, popped out to catch me and offered us the last room in the motel. After a very long day’s ride on our motorbike we were very happy to have a place to call home for two nights. Excellent motel and facilities.

Great motel, well managed and just what we wanted. Easy to walk to restaurants nearby. We felt we didn’t need to do an underground hotel because you get the underground experience in other tourist sites. Good parking and felt secure. Overall exactly what we needed for breaking the trip from Adelaide to the NT. Apparently it’s the pick for NT friends who come south too

The staff were very friendly and kind, very helpful and were willing to accomodate us and our puppy. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The shower pressure was amazing with plenty of towels, face washers and even a makeup one

We stayed for 10 nights while waiting to get out border pass into the NT. The owner & her son Don couldn't have been more helpful & the cleaning staff too. It is a short walk across the road to get a meal or to walk down to the shopping area. The rooms are larger that the normal motel room which makes it more comfortable. Bed was comfy & the Wifi ample.

Very nice stay. Spotless, comfortable and spacious room; easy location in Coober for a quick bite at the Outback Bar and Grill and fantastic, friendly service. Will certainly stay again when heading down the track next.
