We drove 5 hours to get to the hot springs, only to have our reservation mixed up when we first arrived ( instead of having side by side rooms we had rooms on opposite ends of the floor) now this wouldn't be a problem but when making the reservation I said " I never get time off work so if...

Like going there at least once a year. The hotel is nice,rooms comfy. They remodeled a few years ago. If you stay at the hotel you get unlimited use of the springs. They have a nice restaurant but a little pricey for what you get. We go to either Nelson or just eat breakfast there. The springs are my favorite... More

We drove from Nelson to Ainsworth for an afternoon at the hot springs. The drive along the water is beautiful. We went during the week so the pools didn't feel crowded. If you are just dropping by for a soak, I would definitely recommend bringing your own towel, water bottle, and flip flops. The resort rents towels for $2 and... More

If you love hot springs, this is one of the most interesting one in BC. The cave makes the experience unique, and the setting looking over Kootenay Lake makes it spectacular. A wonderful winter visit when added to beautiful nearby Nelson, BC. Snowflakes falling on your face while soaking at 40C/104F ALMOST matches a sun soaked beach in the Caribbean.... More

This place is basically out in the middle of nowhere, but for a one night stay, it's lovely. The rooms are very nice and the price of the room includes admission to the hot springs; part of which are in an underground cavern where the hot water comes from. And the water is very hot in certain parts of it.... More

Took the wife there for her birthday and stayed a night. Living so close 3 hours away its like going to heaven sitting in those hot pools. The restruant has great service and the food is great......I plan on taking a motor bike trip over there this year and staying for 4 nights with evening soaks for the old bones.

The hotel rooms are nice updated. The water in the hot pools is splendid. Very friendly stuff. Free swimming in the pools for guests. Beds are comfortable. The cell phone reception is sketchy but free wifi.

On the edge of Kootenay Lake, the Resort offers modernized accommodation in an older building, excellent food and wine, and of course, the Hot Springs pool. From the road, it doesn't look like much, but is definitely worth a stop. We were there in September, when the days were cooling, and the experience was perfect. It must be even better... More

If you've been thinking of a hot springs to try this winter, you wouldn't be disappointed by this resort. What it may lack in a modern look it makes up for for in charm, vista, and oh yes a natural hot spring cave. The cave is a tunnel that curves through the mountain in a horseshoe shape with two areas... More

So relaxing to sit in the hot springs and soak in the amazing water, and the mountain views. This is a must do on a rainy or snowy day. Be sure to check out the caves. If you are adventurous dip in the cold pool and then go back into the warm pool.
