What could be better than soaking in these hot springs when the temperatures drop. Don't go unless its the evening in summer as it's too hot in my opinion. The cafe hot chips and other options are good, nothing worse than being hungry when you're...More

$60 for 2 adults and a 3yo... The pools were warm but rather crowded In their defence I'm probably not the kind of person who gets particularly enthusiastic about a warm pool of water. But it just didn't seem worth it.

Always great, though getting very pricey, you need to stay for a decent length of time to make it worth it.

Good fun with a wide variety pool temperatures. Nice way to relax and look at the snow on the nearby mountains. Changing rooms are warm! Plus an electric spinner to dry your togs. A little inflexible in that if you leave and want to return...More

We purchased a day pass so we had an afternoon swim. Very tidy, clean and not overcrowded hot pools. We came back later in the evening for a swim - perfect way to end a great day

What length is the freshwater pool laned off for lap swimming?
6 May 2017|
Response from Shane_Adcock | Property representative |
Hi, the freshwater pool is 25 metres long. Just note that we have one lane roped off for lap swimming most days - the exceptions are public holidays (and the weekend attached to public holidays), and school holidays.

Is it too cold out of the water to enjoy the springs at this time of year?

Response from Shane_Adcock | Property representative |
Hi, some days it can be a little chilly but it is still definitely enjoyable. We would recommend bringing jandals or some sort of slip-on footwear so you can keep your feet warm between pools.
