  • We came 32 years ago on our honeymoon. It was lovely. Came again 20 years ago. It was very nice. In the last 20 years life's pace and responsibilities seem so high we needed a real break. But how does...  more »

  • Everything about our overnight stay was wonderful. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable and we dined in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. The food was wonderful and the staff excellent. We relaxed in the superb hot springs and soaked away all our aches and pains. So relaxing we didn't want to leave. We hope to visit again one day.
  • After a lovely drive along Arrow Lake to the resort, it was so nice to be relaxing in the hot springs with my family. I hadn't been here for a few years and was so nice to be back. Our oldest son thought the caves were so interesting and our baby had a blast splashing in the main pool. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. For the four of us it was $33 - great price in my opinion. No complaints, both boys were crashed out in the back seat within minutes on the drive home after a few hours of fun! Will absolutely go again soon!
  • Hotel rooms (premium lakeview) are good. Extra 20 bucks for premium Lake view room is not necessary as there is no balcony! However, that room is on the same floor as the hot springs which is helpful! Food at restaurant was expensive but really good! Hotsprings Cave is awesome..definitely better then radium or Fairmont Hotsprings!
  • The hotspring of course was great but the restaurant had a bit to be desired. Sent my meal back as the veggies were at best like warm. Came back quickly enough as I'm sure they have a micrinatentive. Plus, our server was inattentive. Though there were only a few tables occupied it took a good while to get her attention. The food was OK.
  • The hot springs were worth the 50 minute drive from Nelson where we were staying. Good value, very relaxing. The cave was novel and it wasn't too crowded at night when we went. Would definitely make the trip there again if I'm in the area
