We went late at night which was good but obviously no view. After nearly an hour we were over the heat and wanted to leave but stayed longer as we felt for the price we weren't getting our monies worth if we had left.

What a lovely place, went back twice in one day. Managed to get discount tickets using book me, they were nearly half the price, not bad value. Staff really welcoming and the pools are so clean as were the facilities.

It was a freezing night when we went and the hot springs was just so nice and relaxing. I was there for about 2 hours and I just did not want to get out. The price is quite reasonable and the free shuttle service is good for anyone who doesn't have a car to get there.

Hi Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. The hot pools are defiantly a great way to warm up on the cooler evenings and you are not alone in finding it hard to pry yourself from the water. We hope you enjoyed your time in Lake Tekapo! More

A very nice complex with stunning views. We thoroughly enjoyed our soak. Being a week day when we visited, the pools were very quiet. I don't think I'd enjoy it as much on a weekend although having one pool exclusively for adults is great.

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. We do have higher volumes of customers during the weekends which is to be expected - however Tekapo Springs still strives to provide a great experience for those visiting any time of the week. With the top pool being adults only we think it is a great escape for those... More

Bought a super combo at $51 and $3 on a locker. The locker was a good deal given it was for the whole day with unlimited openings. The $51 also allowed unlimted excess to the ice skating ring, pools and tube park. Started the day at the tube park, and the queue looked daunting. It however moved along very quickly... More

The Tekapo Springs hot pools are lovely, three differnet pools are all at different temperatures, and are set into a hillside near the lake. From the top pool (and warmest at approx 40C), you can see across the lake to the mountains beyond. The lower pools have less to see. The pools and changing areas are well maintained and clean....

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs and it is great to hear such good feedback from a relaxing time that you enjoyed at our complex. I accept the view from the two lower pools is not as panoramic but we have a health and safety obligation to have a fence across this area. The fence is... More

Not pleased when we arrived to find out that the hot pools were closed due to a private function. We are overseas travellers and relied on the sign out the front which said open till 9pm. Checked in the afternoon around 4pm to see if it would be open after dinner and there wasn't anything on the sign to say... More

Wow what a view. We sat in the hot pools looking out at the mountains. It would have been lovely to take the kids as there was a hill covered in snow and they were pushing kids down on tyres. Looked awesome fun and we could see it in the distance from the hot pools. There is also an ice... More
