The Comfort Inn in Coober Pedy is the most unique hotel I have ever seen or stayed in!
All rooms are underground in an old transformed opal mine. The hallways are wide and furnished with lovely antique furniture and the rooms are very clean and comfortable, with
a small kitchenette area with microwave and private bath with amenities to rival any big city hotel bathroom.
The hotel management welcomes you like family and treats you as such. Once you enter the spacious lobby, you cannot imagine you are in what was once a working opal mine.
There is also a lower level with rooms and their breakfast area as well as numerous tunnels and hidden areas which have yet to be transformed and are an interesting "work in progress". The management will take you on an informative tour of the entire hotel.
And, yes, each room has an open inverted umbrella suspended from the ceiling to catch
any bits of dust that might fall from the air vent. Very amusing, but so practical, to
say the least, and I couldn't help thinking of Mary Poppins! Also, yes, to the enjoyable
food at John's Pizza, a 10 minute walk to town.
I only regret that my stay was just one night as I would have loved to have spent more time there and seen even more of Coober Pedy. I will surely return.
I would have to say that both Coober Pedy and The Comfort Inn are each "one of a kind" in their own special ways. All of the above are highly recommended.
