Where to stay - Coober Pedy

We sadly can only fit 1 night in at Coober Pedy, but we'd like to stay in an underground motel/hotel - any recommendations would be welcome :-) There will be 3 families, all with young children, and we'd like to stay at the same place.

We only stayed one night at Coober pedy also, we stayed at The lookout Cave was a nice motel very friendly and helpful staff.

Highly recommend Johns Pizzas best pizzas we have had and huge we had left overs and had them the next night heated on the next campgrounds bbq.

We also went to the Old timers mine our girls LOVED it. would of loved to go to another mine also.

We have also stayed at the Lookout Cave underground motel. It was all that it should be. But there are others.

Can also endorse John's Pizza. We had a "Coat of Arms" pizza.... Kangaroo & Emu!
He also had a Tiramisu to die for.... as good as the best anywhere, including Italy.

Cheers

Thank you everyone - I appreciate your comments. Sounds like John's pizza has to be tried! :-)

By the way, the Visitor Centre is first class and very helpful. Straight in front of you as you reach the main street.

With a group I would suggest The Underground Motel http://www.theundergroundmotel.com.au/

It has units with a shared entrance/hallway and was very nice.
We stopped there a year ago.
Put the link in as I had to look it up to remember the name.

Hi,
Riba's underground camping and caravanpark is a pretty good experience and reasonable. About 5 k's of out town towards William Creek.

Regards.

We were going to stay here but we changed to a motel as someone suggested when I was asking was its just a long hall way with cut out sections to "camp" in so if someone down the end is snoring it will echo up the hall and you will hear everything

got to agree with what you said above Litlbalt...we have stayed at Ribas and that's what it was like for us. it didn't make that much differance to our nights sleep, as we had to do a late night dash to the hospital for a few hours with an extremely sick child, but yes you could certainly hear the snoring echoing around the inside there.
