 Visitors can stay underground, or if they prefer, above ground rooms are also available. Sleeping underground is a unique experience. Quiet, cool, dark and airy – the rooms are spacious with high ceilings. Most visitors say that sleeping underground gives them the best night’s sleep they have ever had! The hotel offers visitors the best opportunity to experience Coober Pedy ‘dugout’ living and the hotel can offer guests a range of specialised tours of the surrounding rugged and beautiful outback.
