Unique Experience

Location, Novelty, Staff were very good.
Pleasant stay for once night. Had stayed in an underground room before so decided the above ground one would be fine this time to save a few $. Big comfortable room. Huge bathroom. Everything was good. décor a lttle dated but that was fine for where we were in the middle of nowhere.

Overpriced and overrated!

Location; Room Size; Checking Out
Room not as advertised, no free movies, no view and difficult access via barely legal, steep and shallow stone staircase. Reception was less than welcoming and meals were extrorindarily over-priced including an $8 room service fee for every order. Albeit that the room was huge by today's standards, we couldn't help but wonder if we were checked into an 'Agoda' special in a dark back corner with a rock solid bed. Long story short, will not return.

Passing through on our way to Alice Springs, very

Underground, decor, shower
It was fine for the 1 night we stayed on our way travelling north. If anything, the hotel was overpriced for what it offered.
