  • My son and I stopped here on our way back from Auckland. The water was a bit too hot for such a sunny warm day. However the highlight was the female cafe owner yelling at a customer with a legitimate ...  more »

  • Great place for a thermal soak. Very chilled through the week. A good time to go. Huge main pool. Spa pools, as well as private ones. Kids pool too. Although not any of their food area was open if you wanted a bite to eat after. However a good fish and chips just up the road for dinner or lunches.
  • Looks really run down. No Cold pool for you to cool off in so hopefully you're able to sit in hot water for ages. Hasn't been updated since at least late 1980. Water quality was good however. Nice and clean. Overall very average hot pools but they're very cheap entry so I guess you get what you paid for.
  • Its a great place to relax! They have private spas here which I highly recommend. They have a hot chips and other nice meals available. They also have bbqs for the public to use and lots of seating areas. The staff were friendly and they are open till reasonably late. I enjoyed my visit 😊
  • One of the oldest natural spa in Auckland, the administration is really cheap plus no time limit. They also have locker for your important items. The most important part this play is they have very good fish and chips. I think the combo is $16 if I am right. It’s really yum yum yum. Not a fancy place but its wonderful place for the family trip.
  • Not the prettiest - definitely not insta-worthy but a great value hot pool with reliable facilities if you are interested in the benefits other than just something to do around Auckland. We go here weekly in the winter to rest the muscles after a hearty gym sesh. There's only hot pools (and one kids pool but no thanks) so it's not smart to come here if it's over 15'C outside. Otherwise it's just too hot.
