Being on a "budget" this hotel was a treat. Many hotels have nice rooms but what stood out to us was the wellness/spa area. We used it that night and again the next morning at 7am, normally we have found they do not open that early. It was clean and nice. The room was also quiet and there was air conditioning which is usually not present.
My one complaint was the breakfast bar (included with the price), we came about 9am, one hour after it was opened and most of the spread was gone. We expected more to be brought out but for the 30-40 minutes we were there nothing was refurbished. Several people came in after us and had even less. Make sure you go early to get the good stuff! The cappuccinoes rocked though, we had several.
We walked to the mine for the tour at 11am (3hr tour), we left the car in the free secure parking lot they have. Very convenient for our checkout day.
It would have been nice if we got a discount at the mine, but that is just us, we are always looking for the deals.
