Great service
Jun 2021 • Friends
Amazing service! A group of friends came on a Saturday night for a swim and it was really busy, we wanted to do a massive shout out and thank you to Barb who was clearly busy serving customers but even when she served us she was so friendly and made us feel welcome. It’s hard to find good service these days! Pools were nice too with all the beautiful lights

Warm and cosy
It was really a great experience. We went for a weekend treat with the ultimate package and what a treat! The Villa where we stayed was so cosy and had all the comfort you need. Heated flooring and shower was a dream. Spacious and really well equiped.

Good morning out..
Apr 2021
Came here for a morning. Booked in advance on the website which was easy and painless. Entry was a bit confusing as to where to go, but got there in the end. There were three pools.. One a bit too hot for me, one very comfortable and one fresh water cold / cool pool. There were also 2 spas. The hydroslide costs extra (which is a bit of a swizz considering how much you already pay for entry. One of the slides was under repair so we skipped the hydoslides. The kids water playground is good fun and you can open and close all sorts of taps to change the layout.

We brought our own picnic but the menu looked good and reasonable priced if you wanted to buy over there. The place could do with a bit of a makeover (the wooden boards are slowly rotting for example and there was barrier tape in a few places).

Still had a good time, but very little to actually do for the kids if not in the water all the time.

Good afternoon
Apr 2021 • Friends
Took the kids here for the afternoon and all in all it was a nice pleasant relaxing soak. Pools weren’t overcrowded abs there is a pool that’s the right temperature for everyone.

Best massage ever!
Soaked the bones for a few hours before our couples massage appointment at the inhouse 'Living Waters Spa'.
The massage lasted 60 minutes and was absolute bliss. We highly recommend the therapeutic massage and will be making sure we come back to treat ourselves more often. So good

Rubbish
Apr 2021 • Family
Rubbish. Pool was full of debris (leaves and bugs), changing rooms were dirty, full of rubbish and chewing gum. Lifeguards are terrible- (especially the old grumpy fat bald guy who likes to make little girls cry). Nobody watching the slides for long periods so kids sneaking up for free rides. This place used to be so clean and professionally run. Time for a new manager.

Poor!
Feb 2021 • Couples
Very grimy and poorly kept place. You don’t get a lot for your $23. There are plenty of staff about but they do not attend to basic cleaning house. The main pool when we were there had debris floating in it, the workmen were drilling concrete and the overall experience was poor. Sorry guys we will not be back.

A nice place for a short visit
Jan 2021
We decided to have a soak to ease our muscles after running events the day before. We went early in the morning, which meant the pools were almost empty of people (going to hot pools in the middle of summer might have contributed to this too). There are two main pools, which are quite warm, and a small pool which was cool.

The area around the pools was nicely landscaped. The pools were too hot to stay for long, so it was quite pricey for a short swim. I think we'd have been more impressed if we hadn't been to Hanmer Springs hot pools in the previous month, which was far bigger with a larger variety of pools and temperatures.

Disappointing
Jan 2021
My rating is based on the price of entry for what was a disappointing visit to this park.

We visited today, a hot summers day and was charged full entry.

One of the three slides was out of action and neither of the two small spa pools were available despite the full price.

There were not enough seating areas for what see,Ed to be a small number of visitors

In the same day we spent time at the lake and at the amazing free hot pools on the side of the river off spa road, both great experiences

I would save your money and go to the AC baths or to the free options.

For the management you need to get more sun loungers and ensure your pricing reflects the value
