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

The location is basically a fee-based public pool. It was crowded, the change room floor was quite dirty, and the water temperature could have been slightly higher. On one side there was a nice backdrop of the mountains, but the pool was so busy that...More

Banff hot springs. Large change room, well priced. Only downside is it’s hard to find parking and very very busy on holidays and weekends. Great views. Much like a pool very comfortable temperature.

Very comfortable changing areas, full and half lockers, towels available. Clean well maintained facility. The water is amazingly warm and comfortable. Slight walk from parking or closer handicap spaces. Amazing views of the mountains. Plenty of seating around the pool. Shallow area for toddlers.
