Situated in the Kootenay Mountain range, along Kootenay Lake, Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort makes a great choice for relaxation and some time off, alone or with family. Take a room in the hotel and enjoy all the facilities, along with the pleasant, helpful staff. Unwind in the hot spring in the natural cave, or get into the outside hot tub. You can go for the two cold pools, one of which offers icy waters at a temperature of 5 C (40 F). The water from the springs has been used as pain relief since the times of the Ktunaxa people.

  • This is an incredible place. Perfect for a romantic getaway or fun for the whole family. The water is therapeutic & truly rejuvenating. The restaurant is excellent & service at this place is top notch. There plenty of other places to explore in the area. Many beautiful scenic serene trails to experience that are easy to navigate. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a relaxing weekend getaway. You won’t regret it. I will definitely be back.
  • I love going to Ainsworth! The hot springs are phenomenal. The waters are not smelly like some hot springs. I have felt rejuvenated in body and spirit while I am in the waters and after leaving. It is a family- friendly place. There are also good explanations about the waters from the history of the First Nations. I highly recommend the restaurant. On a Saturday night you should make reservations if you have a large group. The food is amazing and the staff are always friendly.
  • The hot springs were enjoyable. My wife enjoyed it more than I did. I didn't want to stay more than 2 hours, but my wife wanted to stay longer. The bathroom was clean, but the men's room was open showers, which may make it hard for some when a dad brought their 4 year old daughter in with them. My wife felt the bathrooms were nice.
  • Very nice, clean facilities and wonderful staff. It is worth staying in the hotel, guest access only to hot spring from 8am til 10:00am. Get to use nice house coat and disposable slippers. The restaurant service was prompt and friendly. Food, breakfast was good but dinner was better. Chef and staff know what they are doing!
  • When it isn't crowded, Ainsworth Hot Spring is a great place to visit. The Cave is fun and extremely hot. I can't stay in the heat for long and I love the cold pool. It feels great. Bring your own towel and water, or be prepared to be overcharged for these items. If you're sensitive to chlorine, you may not enjoy this experience. There's a restaurant upstairs, but I've never tried it. The best time for a quiet experience in the water is early morning around 10. Holiday times are like people soup and way too crowded unless you like being squashed into a small space with way too many people
