Great location. Old resort. Near a number of great tramping tracks. Fantastic hot pools will revive the weariness of muscles and bones. Then be blown away by the fantastic meals. They are all absolutely 5 star. Was not expecting this at all. The service was excellent and the tip very healthy. Kiwi's hardly ever tip great service. But this time... More

We stayed for one night and took a package for two which included, a Night in a mountain view room, 3 course Japanese type dinner, cooked breakfast, private spa for 45 minutes and unlimited use of the 3 outdoor pools. The pools and spa were fine, the room was nice but bit dated but the dinner was great and we... More

Maruia springs has been a place we have come to for many years now. Yesterday we stopped off for a soak in the hot thermal waters on our way home through the Lewis Pass. It was a hot day but still the water did its trick! Relaxed muscles and feeling revived we left for home after an hour. This place... More

Reception was bright me efficient. Room was very tired and faded. Thermal baths left a lot to be desired. Huge potential but has any recent maintenance or improvement been made. Dining area was fine, food was great...but they announced halfway through the meal they had one glass (correct) of red wine left in the place. Poor stock management, run out... More

my family chose to break the drive to Christchurch from Picton and we though a nice dip in thermal pools would be great. we paid at reception and were told that if we "were disturbed by sandflies, we could use the indoor pool instead". It turned out that infact the swarms of sandflies meant we couldn't actually use the outdoor... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip around the South Island: a quiet, relaxing spa stop on the Lewis Pass. Lovely room (Garden view, upstairs), great soak in the private and rock pools (despite the pesky sand flies), good breakfast and coffee. All in all a wonderful experience.

After reading all those reviews I wasn't sure about booking but it just goes to show you should make up your own mind. I was tempted by the idea of sitting in those natural pools with a stunning view of the bush clad mountains and I wasn't dissapointed. So much nicer than Hamner. You can waft around the place in...

Be prepared to do nothing but enjoy the view, thermal pools and quiet dinner. Maybe a walk around the hotel is something to do. I love thermal baths/pools so I enjoyed relaxing in the mineral rich spring. In summer, there are lots of sandflies outside around the pools. I know that in winter the hot pools are amazing with snow... More

We stay in mountain view room for one night due to lack of japaness room. Room is OK in terms of the cleaness. But we got a room without servies at first (we arrive around 3.30pm). The manager swaped another room for us and gave us 45mins free privite bath which is not bad we think. The outside rock pools... More

I attended here with my partner during a hot summers day, I thought at first the heat may be an issue but boy was I wrong! As you walk in, friendly staff greet you. Following this comes a walk into a large deck showing you the mountainous surrounds of this beautiful pass. From there my partner and I explored the... More
