Reviewed January 12, 2014

Really liked the Hot Springs, relaxing, nice views, it was included with our hotel and it is a must, after a day walking around the city or off the slopes, we appreciated it + the bilingual service was a nice surprise.

“Nice view.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Fun classic rentable bathing suits.
Beautiful mountain views below.

Not a lot of seating, or areas for your towels.

“Great View”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

The Springs were a lovely way to end a long day of active events.
You are able to hire a locker and towels if need be. Which is great as it is not overly priced.

View was great as it was mid afternoon and the pool wasn't too crowded which is always an advantage.
We did make use of the Day Spa there as well which was amazing service and quite tranquil.
Responably priced as well.
Anyone heading to Banff - it is a must do in winter.

“Great after skiing”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Came here to relax after a day of skiing at Sunshine Village. It felt really good to warm up the feet and toes after being in the cold whole day. For less than $10/visit ($7.30 entrance fee + $1 locker rental), we actually came here twice during our trip. Both times were really crowded because of Christmas but the pool and the changing room remained very clean.

I have sensitive skin and soaking in chlorinated pools always dries it out, but have no problem in the natural sulfuric water. I actually feel it does something nice to my skin. I don't mind the minor rotten egg smell or the 10 degree fahrenheit temp outside of the water.

Thank ITYU
