It was busy when we arrived in the evening. The staff here are friendly and helpful. It was really nice to be in the water after a long day of travelling. Relaxing for sure.

Busy for a reason. Hot springs are great. Especially after a long day on the trail. Line up to get in was long and slow :( facilities pretty clean despite the mass number of people. Staff friendly :)

Enjoyable experience in spring fed pools; not overly priced for the experience, free shuttle available from the town, with a short walk to the entrance. Changing rooms were clean when we visited and appeared to be well monitored by staff. Not ideal for swimming, far...More

This is a spring fed outdoor pool much like you'd find in a hotel or apartment block. The water was 39C so think of it as an oversized jacuzzi. There are separate changing facilities with lockers which are a doller for every time you lock...More

We went to go to the hot springs but was really disappointed with how big the place was. We have been to hot springs in New Zealand and Iceland and unfortunately this was nothing more than a small swimming pool

We love the hot springs! It is our favourite thing to do in Banff, it is always a great experience. The price isn’t outrageous for a pool; it is very nice that they provide you with a locker token. Towel rental prices are kinda steep...More

I went there in April so it was not too busy. We stayed at the Rimrock hotel so we just walked there. The parking lot is quick big and there are lower ground level that you can utilize as well.
