What a great place to relax in the 40 ish deg thermal pools. Fantastic facility with heaps of pools to use, plenty of room in each pool and very friendly people. Body felt so good after 2 hours of soaking, will be heading back tomorrow for another session.

We went on a Monday which I understand is one of the quieter days. Wasn't too crowed at all. Really enjoyed the adult only pools and the sulphur pools. Also recommend paying a bit extra and getting a private pool for 30 mins, if you take that option general admission to all the other pools is included too.

Very nice setting but looking tired and worn. Our first experience was a very bored and unhelpful girl working the front desk.

Great but expensive. Do not feel the prices are appropriate, especially when coming here with the family.

Well a couple of hours at the pools, as always leaving soo relaxed and with a warm glow. While always busy - it never appears so - mind you we stay away from the rides and kiddy areas. Soaking in up to 40 degrees then a good water jet experience does wonders for those achy bits and a lot more... More

On an impromptu trip to Hamner Springs with my wife and 14 year old son for the weekend. While it is rather cold outside due to being just on the end of winter, there was a sanctuary from the chill. We decided on the hot pools for today's activity because it is the best and warmest place to be. Enjoying... More

Enjoyed our visits to the hot pools - facilities are very good with clean spacious change rooms, good showers and excellent moisture remover for togs. Pools good - especially liked the sulphur pools and the spa for adults - excellent idea making this pool adult only.

Hot springs would not normally be my cuppa but I think I could enjoy these at any time. I went after finishing a 6 day hike carrying a heavy pack so it was the perfect way to relax. Why do I think I'd enjoy it any time? Variety, that spice of life! Some pools are warm, some hot, some smell... More

We found the price good for a family, and had good options for kids up the back end of the grounds. We felt a little uncomfortable in some of the other pools so found ourselves more in the colder pools in the kids area to avoid the looks of the adults. We tried very hard to keep our kids quiet...

Had a great time to relax and spend time with my loved one. Worth spending time with friends and family. They have picnic areas so no problems if you get hungry. :) there are a lot of parking spaces everywhere.
