Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort was by far the #1 high point on our 2,000+ km summer trip to Whistler, BC; Jasper, Alta; Canmore, Alta; and Ainsworth Hot Springs, BC. The resort itself is so laid back and comfortable to spend time at. It was the most reasonably priced/superior accommodations I've personally experienced anywhere in the Canadian Rockies, and possibly the...

Having visited for the past several years, things have changed this past year and not for the better. First, the hot springs weren't hot. The main pool was tepid and very cloudy, and so overly full of people, it reminded me of a public swimming pool. The caves we almost too crowded to even use, and they were cooler as...

Great resort, extra friendly staff, and one of the best hot springs in BC! We had a clean, comfortable room. We thought price was a little high, but then when you factor in the price of the hot springs for two days(included with the stay), its really quite reasonable. We especially loved the extra time in the morning in the...

We had a generally great experience at this resort. The restaurant served the best food I've had in a long while - at every meal! Service staff were friendly and well informed. Pools were relaxing although busy during main hours. Glad they have the extra time for guests only. ONLY COMPLAINT: We are a lesbian couple and attempted to trade...

We made the decision to stop at Ainsworth Hot Springs to rest and relax on our way back to Ontario. It was the perfect choice! The Resort was welcoming with a very nice room and thr Springs are small but intimare. In addition the first and last hour is reserved for guests of the Resort only. We were there for...

We came here to decompress and do nothing, and it's exactly the right place. Soaking in hot spring water and snoozing afterwards, and then soaking again... what doctor recommended. The place is clean and friendly, and definitely healthy. We'll be back.

While we went away for a date weekend we were somewhat disappointment in the amenities Ainsworth had to offer. The soaking pools were fine even though we thought that there may be more space then we had. One thing we would recommend is limiting the number of outside people that they allow in as the pools on Saturday became very...

I'm sorry to hear you encountered some issues during your stay. You must have been here on the Remembrance day long weekend when the pools were very busy. We most definitely have limits to the number of people allowed in the pools but on every long weekend it is going to feel crowded. If you're looking for a quieter time...

Our third visit to Ainsworth Hot Springs and it is one of our favourite spots in the Kootenanys. The healing Hot Springs and especially the cave is very therapeutic for sore, achy joints. Went with our kids and grandson, who also love the hot springs. Very popular site, with efficient friendly staff. Clean locker rooms with good showers. Can't wait...

I was very happy with the springs themselves but the overall stay in the resort was upsetting. First my reservations were messed up and I was told I needed to down grade or possibly stay somewhere else, I was not offered a discount or even an apology. The staff did however manage to sort things out and get me another...

We had a lovely room. No need to pay extra to overlook the lake as there r no belcony on your room. The service was great both for the hotel and restaurant. The hot springs were awesome and I loved the cave springs. The supper and breakfast were both great.
