This hotel is quite nice. It has the hot springs connected to the hotel. You have extra hours in the pools when you stay at this hotel. The restaurant has a great selection of foods and many good vegetarians choices. The one thing that is missing is robes to wear to the pools. There are also units with kitchenettes .

Thank you for spending your weekend with us! We hope everything was relaxing and enjoyable for you. We are diligently working on the bathrobe situation; it's a matter of housekeeping and not having enough space to store all the robes. However, we are creating more space and expect to have brand new robes available for all hotel guests very shortly!... More

Very polite staff, no lockers but they bag and watch over your belongings. A great view of Kootney Lake, the hot springs has caves with a hot pool. A warm swimming pool and if you are brave you can try the Cold plunge! It was a lot of fun for the family! A little run down but nothing major.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on our way through the Kootenays on a hot springs road trip. The room was average and a bit pricey all things considered, but what really stood out was the kindness of the staff. Our rented vehicle broke down in the parking lot and every time we tried to open the... More

I come here every year from the US to relax in the hot springs pool and occasionally have lunch. Three girlfriends and I came mid Oct and had a blast. The pool wasn't crowded and two of us finished soaking before the other two. So we went upstairs to have a snack as we were eating lunch in Kaslo. The... More

I reserved 2 rooms for four adults family members. Our stay was from Oct. 15 to Oct. 18, 2014. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and with friendliness. One room was 2 queen beds and the other was 1 king size bed located on the second floor. The room with the king size bed faced the lake with a... More

This is not a family friendly hot springs the cave is great to see once but as for the rest the hotel is old and the management is anal about the hot springs. There is no noise allowed my daughter has a speedo bathing suet with the flotation sewn in to the suet not a cheap suet. I asked 2... More

Hi Chris, we're very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience. One misconception is that the springs are akin to a swimming pool, however, they are only meant to be used as soaking pools. The reason for this is because the material used in flotations acts as an insulator and poses a risk for children to overheat very... More

So it's key control system is old but there is no excuse for being checked into a room which is already occupied - I opened the room door and saw someone's shoes. OOPS!!!

We do apologize for what happened during your stay. It's a rare occurrence, but when it gets busy sometimes things can slip by us. As we had discussed, because of our remote location our system relies on a lot of manual copies as the internet is unreliable and software programs are scarce. So many companies utilize cloud-based programs which are... More

Isolated location where total relaxation prevails but held to ransom by the only restaurant in the area. Accommodations were clean & quiet complete with fridge, robe & coffee maker. Free WIFI but was spotty. Staff were all very helpful & courteous. The hot springs features a natural cave like no other with a very hot water fall inside(abt 60C). Limited... More

Thank you for your positive comments! A waterproof camera is a great idea, we have had a couple guests bring waterproof phones that are capable of filming while submerged and it certainly makes for a great video. Hope to see you back soon. More

This was our 3rd stay, and they have done a very nice job of updating and improvements. We thought the $144 was high for the size and view of our room, but that includes unlimited soaking, which we took full advantage of! The beds were comfy, linens nice, and I loved the addition of guest robes. The staff were all... More
