Step back into time. Lovely art Deco place with great spa prices. Will return...my imagination was in the early 1900s. Wow.

My 15 year old granddaughter and I did a full package. The bath attendants were amazing! So much fun. This is a "must do " when visiting Hot Springs.

Felt like a million bucks when I left! I've been here about 4 times and I will always come here because the pricing is reasonable and the service is great! The message was OUTSTANDING!!!

We went on a girl's trip to Hot Springs and treated ourselves to a $70 spa package. The massage was great, the baths were relaxing, and the staff was pleasant! Get the lavender paraffin hand treatment! Well worth it. I will definitely be coming back to enjoy this unique experience.

If you are looking for a modern spa experience then this isn't it...go to one of the other spas in the area. If you would like to step back in time and have different water treatments in an authentic setting, then Buckstaff is where you want to go. This is the second time I have been and I got the... More

If you are in Hot Springs and want a traditional bath house treatment, Buckstaff Bath House is the place to go. They offer great packages at a good value and you will experience the same bath treatments given around the early 1900's. I had the Deluxe, which was 1.75 hours and cost $80. It included the whirlpool (not your modern... More

But bah attnedant Sara was great and the masseuse Cooper were great and friendly! I prefer the privacy of a spa to this but it's an... More

First time to "take the waters." I recommend doing a tour of the Fordyce first so you get a feel for the bathing procedure. We arrived about 12:45 and were second in line for tickets when they opened after lunch at 1:15. I opted for the "traditional" -- bath with loofa scrub and massage. My attendant was Mattie who took... More

My girlfriends and I have gone here to celebrate my 21st and 30th birthday! It is an unusual, fun, silly and relaxing experience all rolled into one! If you are on the conservative side, you can wear a swimsuit. But, the staff is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable if you choose to go without. If you're looking... More
