World’s deepest hotel opens in UK with guests sleeping in an underground mine -1,375 feet below the earth’s surface


A new hotel with rooms 1,375 vertical feet (419m) below ground has just opened in North Wales, 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.

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.

At 8am, once the sun has risen and lit up the world far above, a revitalising cup of tea or coffee warms everyone’s cockles before they head to the surface and back home.

Guests can only book the hotel for a Saturday night through to Sunday morning and getting to your room is stressful.

Operations manager Mike Morris said: ‘Guests who have stayed there absolutely loved it. They like its uniqueness, the evening camaraderie and the sense of being away from civilisation.

‘However the main observation has been the ability to get an amazing night’s sleep! Guests have said they had a better night’s sleep than they ever manage at home – the best night’s sleep in their lives.

‘Building the campsite was not straightforward. An abandoned tunnel was walled up to create the grotto, a short distance from the main camp. Getting the beds and timber shed sections down was more challenging.

‘We had to abseil them down,’ said Mike. ‘We rigged up cargo lines and lowered them down shafts, which was easier than trying to manhandle them all down.’

Upon arrival to the Tanygrisiau Base near Blaenau Ffestiniog, guests will be met with their trip leader at 5pm.

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.

The man behind the big idea was Miles Moulding, managing director of Go Below. The company was established 13 years ago.

‘He always likes to offer something that’s never been done before,’ said Mike.

‘Our target market is those who are a little bit more adventurous and who want to try something different from hotels and glamping. There’s nothing like this anywhere else in the UK.’
