“Expensive for what it is”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Harrison Hot Springs is a great place and has great scenery. It's truly beautiful. The resort is nice as well and has a relaxing setting. However, the room is not up to par. The bed is old and squeaks which is really annoying. The bathroom is old as well. We paid $250 a night and I expected a little better than that

The pool is ok. I prefer the Sol Duc in Washington in terms of the hot springs quality. Setting wise, Harrison is better

Very impressed by the hot spring pools,very relaxed!Not recommended to order the family suite, it is small and too squishy for 4 people.The bed was in front of the room, looked very awkward and made no space.The lakeside cafe was ok but certainly not great for dinner.The cooper room is better.Overall it is still one of the best resort in BC especially for hot springs.

We returned here for a weekend stay after several years absence. There are some pluses and some minuses.

The best feature is obviously the hot pools. There's a nice big outside area with lawns, hot pools, a nice swimming pool and an indoor area with pools and a spa. The outside pools could be enhanced by adding jet-streams, which is a nice feature of some other pools we have visited. We enjoyed the dinner, live music and dancing in the Copper Room, the breakfast buffet in the Lakeside Restaurant, a casual evening in the Islands Bar and coffee in Miss Margaret's.

The East Wing or West Wing would be a better choice for accommodation. Our room in the main building was not as nice as on our previous visit. It's not a good idea to allow pets on all floors of a hotel building. Reception confirmed this as hotel policy. That's like putting smokers and non-smokers on the same floor - you wouldn't (or shouldn't) do it. Our room had seen some updating but various lamps were non-functional and the carpet looked worn. Vacuuming under the cabinets appeared not to be a regular occurrence.

Overall, it's a nice enough place, the location and scenery is unbeatable and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It's good for a short stay and we enjoyed our visit and will likely stay here again.

Room Tip: The main building is somewhat closer to the spa but the newer wings have nicer rooms.

Went there for a weekend with 2 lifelong friends at the beginning of April and had adjoining rooms in the old section of the hotel. Had a nice dinner in the Copper Room, but the rooms were very basic, but pricey. The hot springs were very crowded so opted not to use them. There wasn't a restaurant (just a small coffee bar) for breakfast in the morning and couldn't find a local restaurant open. Certainly enjoyed the time with friends, but overpriced for what we got.

I have been to Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa probably 8-10 times in the last 8 years (just there first time in 6 years). I've stayed in the old part of the hotel and the newer part. Old part is pretty ghetto but it works. Newer part is nicer, more level floors and doesn't make you feel like your on the set of Little House on the Prairie. Newer part is furthur away from pools but I like how much quieter it is in the newer area.

The Pools are pretty awesome. You need 2 nights stay to accomplish a good stay and use of the pools. Especially if they decide to shut down the best pool for cleaning maintenance and don't reopen until 5:30pm like they did to us.The adult pool is a perfect temp. What they really need is drink service to the pool. Not drunken stupid service but it would have been nice to not have to get out just to get a nice cold water or soda, or a rye and coke. I'm not saying I support getting drunk at all. As well they could use more hooks to hang clothing near the pool.

Harrison (the town stores) has some cute shops and restaurants, but I recommend you keep your wallet in the pocket or purse. Can you say Tourist Trap? Haha. On the strip, we went to a diner for breakfast and the server didn't understand English so when my wife tried to get her order corrected, the girl just smiled and giggled and said yes yes, food. We gave up and just paid the arm and a leg. Then we went to the Lakeside Restaurant in the hotel, and had good food, bit overpriced, and service mediocre at best.

We also had an upgrade to the better rooms, for an extra $20/night, which was worth it because they gave us a room on the corner facing the town, lake and mountains. Would have been beautiful if the rain would've stopped and clouds left.

All in all we had a relaxing stay, enjoyed ourselves and can't wait until the prices go down again so we can book a couple more nights and relax again, maybe bring the kids this time. Harrison is great in summer because of the lake but nothing beats being in the hot spring pools when it's snowing!

Room Tip: Definitely the East end facing the lake. Get a corner suite.

This is a lovely hotel and spa but there seems to be little training of staff around customer service. The receptionists are not particularly friendly, barely make eye contact and are a little dismissive. The staff do not greet you as they pass by. The hostess in the Lakeside Cafe rushed ahead to the table, almost threw the bill fold onto the table and left as we barely got there.
That all said, the hot springs when not too crowded are lovely and relaxing.

Our experience was very good at this resort. The hotel isn't a Four Seasons or a Fairmont but it definitely was quite fine and had some interesting quirks. The fact that there are cute, animal topiary bushes at the front entrance should tell you they have a quirky approach to their property.

Check-in was courteous and efficient. The front desk clerk (like most of the staff we encountered) was very polite and older. She did tell us out room had only a "partial view".

In fact, the "partial view" from my upper story east tower south facing room was actually quite a lovely view of the lake, with the little town beside it and a mountain behind. We had a balcony with chairs to sit in. No complaints there. The room was clean and spacious. That said, there are so many different wings of different ages and room configurations. The hotel appears to have grown organically over the years and is kind of an eccentric jumble of different styles of architecture from different time periods. The room was quiet. We did have hear some "party" noises from the room next door but upon a quick phone call, the management very quickly took care of the problem and the noises stopped.

The hot spring pools were, of course, were a unique feature of the place but they are very popular. It might be nice if they opened another, larger "adult" pool perhaps with a bar.

It's an interesting crowd at the pools. Lots of younger Asian families, older couples mixed in with what looked to be "small town", "real Canadian" types of all ages on vacation. Not many of the "beautiful people" types you might encounter at Kits beach or Malibu which was just fine for this non-runway model guest.

The Copper Room was delightfully quirky. After seeing the casual "down home" crowd in the rest of the hotel, I was surprised to see many of the guests were dressed to the nines at the a la carte dining room. We had an excellent wine with a very good if not inexpensive three course meal. Our very attentive, very experienced, slightly eccentric, older waiter gave us a sorbet between courses. A nice touch. He also gave a variety of bread with tons of butter rolls - very old fashioned. The most unique touch, however, was the live band and dancing. I must say it's very rare to go to a fine dining establishment and then find oneself dancing between courses to an excellent live band playing 1950's rock! A very fun experience!

We missed the breakfast buffet but we had a decent lunch in the Lakeside Café. Lunch was served accompanied with more bread and those abundant butter rolls that were also served in the Copper Room. Again, service at lunch was very good and served by a charming older chap. Though not particularly cheap, the price was certainly in line with the other restaurants in the town.

I would come back again because the place was pleasant, relaxing and rather unique.












Dinner at the Copper Room was definitely
