I thought the place needed some TLC (some holes in the wall, just looked a bit tired), but after slipping over on the slippery concrete I realised it needs some maintenance too! It should be simple for them to water blast every now and again...More

beautiful natural environment with walk through thermal area to enjoy. The pools though are, in my opinion, in need of urgent maintainence and upgrading. In contrast Wairakei Thermal Springs have been developed to fit in with the bush and are modern and clean looking.

This was my first introduction, coming from the South Island, into the geothermal activity on the North Island.... this was very cool to see the steam rising from just about anywhere you looked. Very cheap to get into especially compared to the Rotorua and Taupo...More

I love this place. First visited 1987 after a school ski trip. I usually stop if I'm in the area. It's not flash but it's lovely. The walk around the thermal area is lovely too
