A new hotel with rooms 1,375 vertical feet (or 419 metres) below ground has just opened in Wakes, UK
The Deep Sleep hotel, located beneath the mountains of Snowdonia in Wales, is officially the world’s deepest hotel.
In the hotel, guests must journey down through an abandoned Victorian slate mine to reach their accommodation.
Guests can only book the hotel for a Saturday night through to Sunday morning and getting to your room is stressful.
Upon arrival to the Tanygrisiau Base near Blaenau Ffestiniog, guests will be met with their trip leader at 5pm.
The hotel has four private twin-bed cabins and a romantic grotto with a double bed.
A single night stay for two in a private cabin costs £350 while the price for two in the Grotto is £550. And if you’re a single guest, you will have to pay the price of two.
From there you will have to complete a 45 minute trek up into the mountains and at the end you’ll get a helmet, light, harness and boots before venturing into the depths of the world’s largest and deepest abandoned slate mine.
The trip down the mine consists of ancient miners stairwells, old bridges and scrambles and while a guest is navigating this, the instructor gives a history lesson.
The descent to the hotel takes a gruelling 60 minutes and once complete you’ll arrive at a set of large steel doors.
The hotel has a cold temperature of 10 degrees Celsius and all guests must be awake at 8am on Sunday for a hot drink and breakfast before starting the ascent back up to ground level.
