Have stayed here many times over several years. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. The rooms are always clean, with everything that you need. The best place for an overnight stop in Coober Pedy.

I stayed here for a week during a recent work trip. The place was clean and well set up, especially with free WiFi (very handy for work). The staff were super friendly and helpful. It's right across the road from a good feed as well. Definitely recommend it.

Big call, I know, but I've stayed in literally hundreds of motels all around Australia (as my job requires it) and I think this might just be the best one yet. Here's why... The fit out. If you work on the road like I do, each new motel is your work station that night. As part of a TV crew...

The rooms are cosy, and the staff are magnificent. This is a real place for family, and i loved every moment. The breakfast was also good. I only wished there were more leisure things to do here, but it is very nice and clean.

Thank you to Dave and Kath for you excellent support during my stay at The Mud Hut.

I stayed at the Mud Hut for the best part of two months while in town for work. The accommodation is terrific (I stayed with a colleague in a two bedroom apartment that had a kitchen - really good when you don't want to eat take away every night!). Beds comfortable. Rooms clean. Quiet. Good temperature control. Our hosts were...

The Mud Hut accommodated myself and many of my colleagues during a project in Coober Pedy. The rooms and facilities were immaculately clean and had everything you needed and wanted in a Motel. The most memorable time from my extended stay at the Mud Hut was the hospitality shown by the owners Kath and Dave. From day 1 they were...

The rooms are excellent. Very clean, beds are comfy, service is great, breakfast was filling. My only complaint is the sound coming from other rooms. I got to listen to the person in the next room on her phone for a couple of hours. Not a lot of sleep for me.

I find this hotel because many places in the small city were full booked, but was a incredible surprise. Nice and confortable cabins with private shower, air conditioner, bath amenities, cable tv. Feels like home. Very nice price. In the city center, walkable distance to gas station with a excellent store. The room also have microwave, tea boiler and mini...
