The Underground 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. A complementary continental breakfast is included; the provisions are provided for self service and available from the early hours of the morning.


Located on top of a hillside on the edge of the town, The Underground Motel offers more than just accommodation: sit back under the large veranda, relax and enjoy. Take in the excellent views of the Stuart Ranges and the 'Breakaways' and watch the spectacular sunsets. The outdoor area also caters for children, with an undercover play area. The off-street location provides secure undercover parking, as well as the peace and quiet that you may seek after a busy schedule or a long day on the road. The centre of the town with its shops and restaurants is in walking distance or a short drive away.

We take pride in making our guests feel welcome: personal service, a friendly atmosphere and unique, well maintained, clean rooms will make your stay at The Underground Motel a special one.
