Very nice setting and great for kids. The food was very expensive and took a long time, great staff at the pool counter.

After hiking around Mt Cook during the day, we had a wonderful time relaxing in the springs. There are pools for kids as well as an adults only pool that stayed peaceful. They give you a wristband for the day and you can go back as many times as you like.

Three big pools, good price for the day and the mountains as a backdrop. I wished I was there while it was snowing.

Nice place to chill for one to two hours max. We only had basic entry so maybe could have spent longer. Nice, friendly staff, clean pools and facilities. $25 - maybe slightly overpriced.

Well worth the $25! Soaked in the hot water for almost two hours. Three different pools with increasing temperature. So relaxing and quiet. There is an adult pool.
