The History of our Motel
The Underground Motel was the first underground motel to be built in Coober Pedy back in 1984, with all rooms being dug into a sandstone hill. Upgrading and renovating has created very comfortable rooms with a unique individual style sympathetic with the arid desert environment.
The décor is very tasteful and reflects the owners’ care for detail. The standard rooms are accessed from the veranda through a beautifully tiled hallway; the suites are accessed straight from the outside, sheltered by their private veranda.
All rooms have natural daylight as well as natural ventilation through air shafts keeping the rooms cool in summer and warm in winter. Of course, all guest rooms come with the comfort of modern living and have their private shower and toilet.
