This was a brilliant place to stay. Such a novelty staying underground! Such friendly Staff, our room was warm, comfortable, and just awesome!, Added bonus is that you can walk outside and climb up the hill that the hotel is set in and have a wonderful view of the township.
Highly recommend staying here!

Great property and fantastic overnight stay. Fantastic location with views across town and scenery, rooms very comfortable and bathrooms recently renovated. Excellent value for money - I have stayed at five star airport hotels with rooms exactly the same as the Lookout Cave and paid triple the price. Very cool experience sleeping in a dugout motel. Extremely friendly family running the hotel with excellent local tips. Couldn’t fault it.
