Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Their online advertised pricing is outdated which they do not intend to update. When you go to pay you'll find it is more expensive than as advertised online. They will point to their little black board on reception desk which will show a more expensive price than the advertised online pricing. Trickery! Additionally, the private pool we had was unhygienic with hair and dirt floating in it. After many years of going there as a kid, it was a disappointing to come back to with my own family after many years.

Sadly, I found this venue to be tired, grubby, entirely over-rated and about as far from any ‘natural’ experience as anyone could imagine.

Kids enjoyed themselves but swam for only 45 mins in the public pool.
Facilities were OK, but dated. Staff were average and were bitching about a staff member named Heather (who sounds awful) when I came in.
Good stop off, the thermal walk is interesting too.
Pretty good value but definitely not a whole day activity.

Great place to relax after a full day of a leadership conference. Very clean pool and lots of lockers.

We did the (free) circuit track around a zone of about a dozen thermal pools, a very easy stroll of 15-20 minutes. Plenty of steam and bubbling mud. The formal thermal public and private pools are right next door.

Great find on our trip south. The public pools look fine and they are great value, but we opted for the private pool which average 40degrees, pretty warm for me. It was pleasant and private and the 20 minutes allowed was enough. We weren't given much information at the entrance so not sure if when you have used your 20 minute allocation in the private pool, can you then access the public one? And are the public ones cooler? I saw people swimming in one of them so maybe.

Went for a swim with my family. Went to use the toilets and the concrete was so hot it burned my toddler sons feet- he was hysterical in pain. I informed the staff on my way out, asking if they could check and move the mats so no one else was burned and only got an ‘ok’. Would have been happy to wear shoes of there was signage or a heads up the floor could be hot- I stood there myself to pick him up, not just hot, but boiling. Painful. Won’t be going back

Nice walk, just 15 minutes and you see more than just some steam coming out of the ground. Pop to the pools at the same time as that’s inexpensive but I have a separate review on that

We paid $12 each for seniors for the private pool. It was very good, maybe a splash of paint in the private pool would be an idea. That charge also gives you access to the public pools. Lovely pools, will definitely be back.

A great place to break a long trip , we stop here whenever we are travelling north. The recent, relatively, facelift has been worth it. No longer looking tired. We love the private pools, nice and hot.
