My husband and I were very disappointed in the service that we received here. It was not what we were expecting!! Too open and fast paced. NOT relaxing at all.

You can do a spa anywhere, but Buckstaff Bathhouse is the only Hot Springs option for getting a "real" therapeutic hot bath treatment - just like they've done it for nearly 100 years! Your modesty is threatened ONLY by your personal attendant, who does a good job and shielding you whenever possible using the white sheet you "wear" from station... More

This place offers the bath, steam, cooling, shower and massage just like what was available back in the day, with the same tubs, steam rooms, cooling beds, etc. We treated ourselves to the full deal (Traditional) and it is finished off with a massage. The water even tastes good, at 4,000 years old. It was very affordable and I would... More

We went for spring break. While the bathhouse is old, it is well maintained and clean. We enjoyed taking a step back in time!

very value priced, hot spring soak, steam, and hot spring shower then followed with a massage, all for less than local spa.

This bathhouse is one of the oldest on Bathhouse Row and I can always spot it because of the blue awning out front. I went with two of my SIL’s and we had 3 different experiences, which we determined to be due to our bath attendants. The package we selected was $64 for a 20 minute massage, whirlpool bath, steam...

I have taken two baths here and they wereboth enjoyable. The second time I also got a facial which was absolutley perfect! The water was very hot and the attendent forgot about me, so I was left in a VERY hot tub for 20 minutes longer than usual. My brother, who went with me, said that the mens section of... More

Like everything else in this town, the Buckstaff is beginning to show it's age. But I enjoyed imagining what it would have been like in it's heyday and in soaking up the atmosphere. I got way more than I planned for and thought the price was terrific. The treatment starts with a whirlpool bath for 20 min which is lovely... More

The bathhouse is so relaxing! I was a little nervous at first. The staff was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. This is a must do in Hot Springs!
