We have been here many times making the trip up from Vancouver and we have never been disappointed. The caves are incredible, now even better with the LED lighting. The restaurant was very good too, a small but good mix of fresh food... make a reservation before you leave home.. it can get very busy. The hotel rooms are clean... More

Our room was spacious, clean and updated with a gorgeous view. The caves were fun and we really enjoyed them - especially in the morning when they were only open to guests of the hotel. Our only complaint would be that there was only one restaurant on the premises and it was way too packed! We were not aware of... More

We greatly appreciate you choosing to stay with us! We are sorry to hear that you didn't get a chance to try out the dining room.

My visit was nice. The rooms were spacious but slightly dated. The food was okay, and the waiters were not nice, almost rude In Fact. The swimming area was large and you were not crowded, at least in the big pool. I enjoyed my stay and would come back again.

Thoroughly loved our experience here! Wonderful rooms with really nice bedding and shower. Hot springs were amazing-- the cave is all natural heat and minerals - you can actually go in and touch the natural formations. There's also a really relaxing warm pool. Surroundings are amazing too-- we had a beautiful walk down to the lake across the road and... More

First I need to say that I have never written a bad review on trip advisor before. I am a very optimistic and positive person and always seek out the best of my experiences. However I feel I should tell others who are considering staying here about my experience. My husband and I drove hours to get here for a... More

I am very sorry to hear of your unsatisfactory experience at our resort. We set high standards for our guest services which were clearly not met in this situation. You should have received a sincere apology for what was undoubtedly our error, along with a freshly cooked and complimentary breakfast. I can assure you this incident has been addressed internally...

My husband and I had a great visit. We have visited all the hotsprings in the area and Ainsworth is our favorite. Love the caves and plenty to see in the area. Well worth the trip. Would recommend for families as well.

First time visit - two nights at the resort were great. The resort recently went through a change of ownership however the staff went out of their way to deliver a great experience. Rooms clean and well kept. Pool, cave and food was excellent.

Really enjoyed the relaxing time in the hot springs. Wish there was a little more lighting in the caverns but it was enjoyable. It was nice that guests of the hotel were able to have and 1 1/2 hours before the hot spring opened to the public. Wish there was more to do around the hotel. Asked a couple people... More

I was recently at the Ainsworth hot springs resort for one night for business. What a beautiful resort! We had been driving about 6 hours prior to arriving and were in desperate need of a glass of wine. We had a wonderful waiter who recommended a great wine, and we enjoyed a spectacular view! The waiter was kind enough to... More

Though the hotel isn't the best value on its own, it is certainly the best if you are planning to visit the hot springs and dip frequently throughout your stay as a pass is included. You can also access the baths from 0830 onward which gives you a 1 1/2 hr headstart over the general public. Rooms have been nicely... More
