Regrettably I won't visit these thermal pools again. the private pools are very run down. we previously had enjoyed the pools followed by a warm shower, before leaving, There is now no hot showers in the private rooms, you have to go to the other end of the complex to shower. the rooms are shabby, and neglected.

I have to say our visit to the springs was very, very disappointing. In fact I could not recommend it to anyone. Previously when the business was run by Kiwi’s it was first rate. We always used to stop there going to and from Christchurch for some beers, food, and a hot pool. They had full bar services, a fully... More

Must be one of the most expensive thermal pools around,and the pools while in a lovely location were very slippery and dirty with black algae everywhere that would not rinse off our togs which needed a full wash later at home to remove the black marks.Sandflies did not help the situation,maybe an outdoor bug killer required

Today I was part of an organised trip (40 people) that stopped for a soak at the pools. We were part of an event raising money for disadvantaged children and putting up regular reports on the internet. As there was no phone service we asked if we could use their internet to do this and despite having just spent $700+... More

We arrived this morning with a group raising money for a charity. Stopped by for a 30 min soak. Wanted to upload a clip onto utube.....we spent $700 for the swims and they would not give us an $8 Internet connection. Pools were pretty average.

We found last minute bookings into events at Hamner Springs impossible, so toddled up the Lewis Pass Road towards the snow. Maruia Springs is on the West Coast side of the pass, just down from the top. We had a very nice morning tea, but then could not resist trying the hot pools. Built out of the local river boulders,...

Definitely worth stopping at if you are driving through to give the driver a nice break in the pools. Also worth having dinner here with good prices and excellent food, including vegetarian choices. Service is friendly and excellent. We stayed the night here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, with beautiful views around the resort.

My partner and I came across this location through the maruia springs website after googling hot pool locations, as soon as we came across the site we booked immediately, it all looked to good to be true! the day before travelling to the resort I stumbled upon the mixed online reviews, so many seemed to be negative and it had...

Very poor response to a question on why we cannot have our pet dog sleep in the room with us on her own bed. We said she would not be in the room unless we were; and when in the pools etc she would be in the car. But still the almost automated response of "we don't allow pets, they... More

Not a good place to stop for locals, all geared up to gouge as much money out of th unsuspecting traveller as possible. This place not only charges for toilets (which there are none locally) but wanted to charge us to put 2 helmets in office for safe keeping. Went soak our feet in foot bath on decking attached to...
