There's a large open air heated pool that's great for families and a hotter roofed spa that is reserved for adults. There are four private wooden pools too which are lovely. Unusually, pass-outs are offered and since they close at 21:00, you can have several visits on the same day which makes the cost reasonable. My wife and I really... More

Have just visited these hot pools and had a fabulous time. What a way to while away the Monday blues. Beautiful blue skies and a huge blue pool full of natural thermal water. Stepping down the steps that surround the pool into the mineral rich water is just heaven. And when you want to turn the heat up a bit,... More

It cost $14 each to get in. We enjoyed the warmth of the hot pools, and the very large one was a novelty. However, we were put off by just how run down the place was. The single available shower was luke warm at best, and the shower/toilet block was really old, grotty looking. Wouldnt recommend.

Miranda hot pools is a place of great historic value and olden day charms, Life certainly takes a comfortable step backwards in time when one sees this natural beauty for the first time. The grounds are generous with plenty of shaded cover to take in a quiet moment; before surrendering your weary body to the relaxing soul healing and spirit... More

My family and I had a lovely day at the hot springs. Staff were friendly, fish and chips were super and the pool was hot and so relaxing. Just regarding the negative reviews about this place, which could put people off coming. Does it really matter if the changing rooms are not 5 star? As you are only in them... More

We went to Miranda Hot Pools for a big family gathering to celebrate a birthday. We had a lovely day. The grounds are nicely looked after. There are plenty of BBQ facilities, good little playground for the children and variety of sized tables under shade. The pool is hot but you get use to it after a few minutes, the... More

Was "greeted" by an unfriendly, barely helpful, older female at the ticket stand. Was quite a put off but we had travelled so far to get there we decided to stay out of of better judgement. Not a good impression for local or international travellers. Did see a note saying the pools will be closed some time in feb for... More

We called in on the 2nd of January - were charged an expensive $21.00 for a child and adult!. The pools are old and dirty. The toilets needed a clean. We had been looking forward to it and expected it to be a highlight of our trip. I'd hate to think if anyone were to get into trouble swimming with... More

We arrived wearing jumpers in October, (we are from Queensland) and it was bliss to have a long quiet soak just the two of us in this genuine hot spring, the only one we experienced in NZ. The spa in Our Rotorua motel was just a spa bath, but thermal pools are something you have to experience. Only a slight... More
