I am a long-time patron of Ainsworth Hotsprings, my family has been visiting yearly since I was a child (over 20 years) and I've seen many changes and improvements over the years. We live about a 6 hour drive away so we usually stay at the resort overnight. Pros: The recent renovations to the rooms are very nice, the lobby... More

I drove to Ainsworth last week during a short trip to Nelson. First the positives: the location is breathtakingly beautiful and there is a fabulous view of Kootenay river from the pool deck. The pool was nice and warm (warm enough for people to enjoy it in the rain), and the hot spring water in the cave was a really... More

#NOT A NATURAL HOT SPRING# Heard amazing things about the hot springs so we drove up from Nelson, couldn't find information online about day passes so bit the bullet for the drive. Here's the run-down on day passes: YES you can enter the hot spring pool without staying at the resort. It's $11 for single entry, $18 for the day... More

I have been to ainsworth hot springs every summer for the last 5 years. I knew the entire resort was for sale and I'm not sure if a sale has taken place yet. I knew the caves had been closed most of June because the water in the caves carried an electrical charge to the swimmers in May and in... More

Had a problem with my room so I was re-located to another more expensive one for no extra charge, (nice bonus) the view was terrific. My only regret was that I didn't manage my time better due to being a weary traveller, I missed the last swim of the night cause I went to diner too late. Oh, yes, lot's... More

We recently visited the hot springs with our children. Upon arrival the female change room was closed for cleaning and we waited for 20 minutes for entrance. After finally entering the change room with my two young children, a staff member came in twice yelling at the top of her lungs for everyone to hurry up in the showers while... More

On a hot spring trip and stopped by for a few hours. Caves were cool and if your looking for a dip with a bit of fun this is the place. Cheap 12-00 and they are quite efficient at running the place. One downfall is they have no chairs or seating for those who just want to cool down around... More

Didn't stay at the hotel, so I can't review it, so let me slag the hot springs. On the particular day I took my family, after a serpentine journey back from Calgary, the pool was filled with an interesting set. When I say filled, I mean the pool is small and dated. When I say interesting, I mean it was... More

I'm sure there are some who would agree that we are located in the middle of nowhere. Others find that part of the "charm". Tens of thousands of people visit the hot springs annually. Everyone is welcome and most find it quite relaxing. Pool attendants monitor activity in the hot springs to ensure public safety. It's unfortunate that the experience... More

Stayed for three night everything exceded our expectations. The room was Spotless and very nice with a great view of the lake. The resturant staff were great even had a few good laughs and conversations with them .The food was great. The only complaint that I would give and not really a complaint is that it would be nice if... More

So our experience here was a little disappointing. The Restaurant, Springs and Lounge all close at 930pm which means at 930pm you are in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. Nothing close by so you are kind of stuck in your room watching TV. We also had a horrible experience at the Restaurant. We arrived at the Restaurant... More

You're quite right about life in this rural area. Even the streets "roll up" early but I can see how you may have felt stuck with nothing else to do. I am sorry to hear we didn't meet with your expectation and that your experience in the restaurant was so disappointing. We strive to serve consistently delicious meals so I... More
