We stayed 3 nights at Halcyon Hot Springs in one of the "King Cottages". The cottage was fantastic! Clean, cozy and very modern. Most importantly the Nespresso coffee machine was our favorite amenity! Comfortable king bed with a nice gas fireplace, TV & modern bathroom equipped with a bidet, heated floors and the lighted make-up mirror was a nice touch. Unfortunately, our in room fridge was faulty and was continuously beeping. We advised the front desk immediately before we went to dinner and they informed us it may just need to come up to temperature after putting in warm beverages. Well it continued to beep off and on, sometimes rapidly for 15-20 seconds at a time ...we finally just unplugged it and told them in the morning it was definitely a problem. They sent a maintenance guy and he told us the same thing...it needed to come up to temperature...it had been over 12 hours since we put the beverages in...we went for lunch, then a soak, (probably 3 hrs) and we asked them again what the status is on the fix. They replied they were working on it...pretty disappointing that it was almost 24hrs and we still didn't have an answer. We continued on to dinner and by the time we returned the noise had stopped...not sure if someone fixed it or if it sorted itself out...needless to say, no more incessant beeping! Other than that we really enjoyed the quiet relaxing stay. The pools were open until 9pm and September is a perfect time to enjoy a couples getaway.

I would like to send a message to management: The stay at Halcyon was the worst stay ever and I am not happy and will never return. Here is the story: Called Halcyon and they booked a room in April 2021 for 4 adults and it was a Village King Chalet room. When we checked in on Sunday we were told we get a room for two adults - unacceptable - we booked a room for 4 adults. The staff was basically incompetent and did not offer an acceptable room for 4 adults - NOT HAPPY. I slept in a hideabed for three nights for about $2000 - unacceptable. The real issue is that unit 10A ( the one we booked and Halcyon mistakenly booked 9A) was vacant SUNDAY and MONDAY then 2 people stayed on TUESDAY. The two people could have stayed in 9A and we could have stayed in 10A for three days. We were never given this option. Your staff was incompetent and I was not happy. VERY unfortunate for Halcyon - you have lost a very good customer based on VERY POOR customer service Kevin. PS: Charged my MC for two stolen robes - used ugly ones

Hello Kevin, I see that your recent stay has not been as expected. I have looked further into the challenges that you have listed here in order to provide some clarity. Our guest services manager has been in contact with you to ensure that we can clarify these issues. We have a variety of accommodations onsite and it is very important to ensure that your confirmation emails are reviewed to ensure your unit is sufficient in size to your group needs. We are aware of this confusion and are working to remedy the issue with you. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

My husband surprised me and booked us for four nights here to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We both thought four days of doing very little but relaxing would be enough. We found out too soon (well, after the four days but...) we were incredibly wrong with that idea and wished we had booked for much longer! EveryBODY (resort and restaurant) were so patient, helpful, kind and fun to chat with. If we needed anything (i.e.: extra bathrobe) item(s) were produced instantly. The pools are absolutely wonderful and we can't believe how long we stayed in them! We loved, LOVED our king cottage. Amenities provided were more than what we expected. The bed is in our top 5 for comfort and of course, the bathroom. Really? It is almost too comfortable;-) Probably the best one we have ever had and we have enjoyed stays in Fairmonts etc. We also loved the cottage set up. They are staggered so even though you are side by side others, the layout of the entrances and decks offer privacy. Unfortunately our stay was socked in with smoke which made any views impossible to enjoy but we knew gorgeous ones 'were out there'. We have been to this area many times and the Lake and mountains are stunning. Point being, I am sure the view from our cottage also would have been lovely. (That said, we did overlook a green space and forest which was very nice). Finally, the restaurant. We had two dinners, a lunch and one breakfast in it. My husband (a former chef) and I enjoyed every single meal we had. The food was absolutely delicious and the chef was incredibly accommodating. All serving staff were friendly, very helpful and so kind. Halcyon Hot Springs and Kingfisher did not disappoint!!!! As stated in my title and opening sentence: our four nights were simply not enough. Thank you..EVERYONE for all you did to make our 25th Anniversary more special than we could have imagined!

Our stay of two days at Halcyon started poorly at the reception desk, where I queried why Guest Services was providing less than the 15% discount promised to the 55+ set on the resort’s website. I showed the reservation confirmation email from the resort's own online booking system to the desk clerk, and pointed out that the follow-up email from Guest Services was providing a significantly lesser discount. The desk clerk then told me that the confirmation email from Guest Services is what I should accept, and added that she had never yet seen an email from the resort’s online system—which she appeared to view with suspicion. Taken aback, I challenged her by pointing out that the “suspicious” email came from info@halcyon-hotsprings.com, whereupon she said that she would have to go and inquire about this issue, sat me down on a nearby couch to wait, and left the room. Well who knows what the desk clerk described to her superior, because when he appeared in place of the desk clerk he proceeded to scold me for upsetting his employee, as if I had perhaps uttered insults or swear words, or shouted at her—none of which I had done. As well, he commenced to explain in a supercilious manner how I could not expect a discount of 15% from the “special online rate” because it was already discounted 5% from the resort’s rack rate. I expressed my annoyance with the lack of transparency in the resort’s pricing, and requested to be checked in regardless. The manager was apparently unsatisfied with my lack of agreement with what he said, and wanted to remonstrate with me further. I requested several times that he simply check me in without further ado, which he finally went ahead and did. The second day, we put out our garbage and completed checklist for housekeeping resupply at 3:00 PM as requested. Two hours later, with nothing yet received, my wife went down to the hotel reception to inquire, noticed her request list with the requested items sitting nearby, and asked if she could take the items up to our cabin. The desk clerk-- the same one I encountered at check-in--curtly refused, and my wife ascended the two flights of stairs back to our cabin empty handed, and perturbed. Our second evening in the pools, during the adults only time extending from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the access to the lower, fourth pool was locked. This made no sense, because there was never any lifeguard down there anyway. Some Halcyon staff were really great, but the desk clerk and her supervisor put a damper on our enjoyment of the resort. After the miserable experience at check-in, we avoided the onsite restaurant so as to minimize the possibility of further disappointment. Instead, we drove to Nakusp, where we dined on the patio of the Leland Hotel, perched above the beautiful gardens of the promenade, with a view across Upper Arrow Lake.

Hello Morris and thank you for taking time to review our resort. I see that you have addressed some concerns with our check-in process and the housekeeping strategy. We do offer a special 5% online booking rate, and also a 15% Senior's rate. Not to worry, your reservation was upgraded from 5% off to 15% upon check-in. Regarding the Housekeeping items not being available to your wife, I have forwarded this over to our housekeeping and front desk managers to ensure that we are better able to provide these services to our guests. Our lower pool is closed earlier than the upper pools to increase safety of our gusts after dark. Thank you for your concern. This has been a very unprecedented year for many of us in the hospitality industry and we appreciate guest understanding and calmness at our wellness resort. Thank you for your review of our hot springs resort.
