    Superb

    How the walls are made out of mud bricks. It was very nice. The opal shop in reception was good as well. The staff were so friendly. The welcome was warm and cheerful and started the experience off on a good note.

    Not much to the restaurant menu.

    The Mud Hut Motel was very comfortable and very clean. A very nice unit to spend a night in as you go between Adelaide and Alice Springs. The management was clearly not promoting dining at the establishment in the evening, however we would chose to stay there again if we needed to stop over at Coober Pedy. Get in quick to have a spot for your car on the grounds as parking was a bit tight in front of units.

    The Mud Hit Motel is unigue. It has a general atmosphere, and comfort that invites me to return. The Mud Hut provides a sense of being in Coober Pedy, built from the earth of the country in which it is located. The rooms are comfortable and clean, with a special ambience which reminds me I am in Coober Pedy.

    - Spacious, cool, and very clean room. - Close to town centre (such as it is).

    A bit expensive.

    It has air conditioning, and the rooms are right sized.

    Parking was kind of weird, but it wasn't full, so there were no issues.

    Staff, especially Andrew, was so helpful guiding us to what to see during our brief stay in Coober Pedy. His recommendations were excellent. The restaurant breakfast was delicious and a good value. Like being able to park right next to our room. Nice selection of information and souveniers in lobby.

    Exceptional

    close to the centre of the town, could easily walk to all of the town attractions.

    I thought that the receptionist wasn't all that friendly or welcoming, the breakfast staff were friendly and obliging. A buffet breakfast or breakfast included in the price would have been appreciated rather than an individual cost for every item ordered.

    Superb

    I liked being above the ground in a motel made out to look like an actual mud hut. Was close to the town centre, Info Centre, cafes, shops & underground museums. In fact the best lamb we have ever enjoyed in Australia was at an Italian place in Coober Pedy. Also a pizza place & the town water supply was pretty good as well - all in a town that suffers an extreme dust problem. Was pleased we booked an extra night as may not have been able to see all the attractions. We had our own vehicle which helped but the tour operators seemed very adequate and there were a few tours to choose from. A very interesting place indeed. These people live a totally different life and need the tourists.

    Nothing. Was great to be on ground level and be able to park the car right outside the door.
