  • These baths are quite popular with locals and visitors. The water is quite hot (41 degrees) and we found plenty of interesting facts about these baths while chatting with the regular users. 
  • The baths are very nice. Water is extremely hot but very therapeutic. We swam in the mornings so it wasn't too bad. The baths are closed between 10am and 12 for cleaning. 
  • Facility looking very tired, could do with a clean up-was close to our caravan park, otherwise would have given it a miss.
