What a terrific place! Comfortable, spotless, and wonderful facilities - the little touches like the wine and chocolates, the teddy bear on the bed, selection of games, laundry facilities, scrumptious breakfast - was just fantastic! Rose and Alex were terrific hosts - warm and friendly, and able to give us plenty of help with planning what to do and see...

I even had a teddy bear on my bed. As my trip was for work that made it very welcoming and less clinical than a motel room. The dried fruit compote for breakfast was divine and Rose gave me the recipe. How good is that. Highly recommended.

We loved the one night stay, the complimentary wine and chocolates was a lovely treat, the dugout was lovely, comfortable beds and very clean and tidy. The experience of staying underground was fantastic. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We recommend Down to Erth B&B to anyone travelling to Cooper Pedy.

Loved our 1 night stay here. It was perfect! Everything was very clean and all the small touches added to the magic. It was great sitting out eating dinner on the outdoor setting and the enjoying a dip in the pool. The complimentary wine and choccies also went down well. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Coober Pedy.

Beautiful, clean with lots of little thoughtful touches such as laundry detergent. Warm and relaxed welcome. There is only one apartment on site, but it is very well maintained. Sleeping underground was easy, cool and quiet. I would recommend down to Erth whole heartedly.

This B&B is marvelous. The owners, Rose and Alex, are the kindest, most caring hosts you could imagine, and the quality of the apartment is superb. The apartment has its own above ground swimming pool, its own wood-fired barbecue (there is also a gas barbecue if you prefer) and a separate entrance, making it easy to come and go as...
