Aaahhh!

Just what the old bones need after a stunning drive from Calgary on our way home to the Fraser Valley.

There is a lot of construction going on around this property and the dust is on everything. The hot pool is too close to the road. I would quicker go back to Miete hot prings.

My daughter and I drove from Banff to Radium Springs... beautiful and picturesque trek, but disappointed with the unnatural feel of the pool. It felt like a big hot tub, versus natural springs.

There was some construction going on when we were there mid-April, but that didn't affect access to any of the pools or change rooms. We hope there will be new change rooms and showers, as the current facilities are starting to show their age a little. The shower heads in the shower areas need attention / replacement. That said, we... More

There were a lot of people when we went there but it was still a good experience. The pools seem to be enjoyed by both locals and tourists.

The hot spring is a basic pool with extra special water. The hot tub was no hotter than the main warm pool. They are currently undergoing renovations. I enjoyed the history posters on the lower level; however, little of the 'hot spring' nature is actually seen from the facility.

We haven't been to Radium Hot Springs for about 10 years and found it to be rather run down. The water temperature was warm, not hot, had cold spots in the pool, and the change rooms were in need of cleaning and repair. They are undergoing renovations to the restaurant and gift store and we were told that it will... More

Driving from Banff to Radium Hot Springs (a very tiny community), is an amazing experience. It's NOT a drive for the faint hearted. The road often has twists and turns and in many places VERY steep hills. But it's certainly gorgeous with views of the mountains the whole way. Perhaps the most spectacular sight comes just as you enter the... More

Price was good and scenery spectacular. The place is showing it's age and the women's locker, that I used, was grubby (old dirt) and several others that I inspected were similar. The staff were very friendly and there were life guards. They are working on the exterior right now, and hopefully they will move inside to spiff it up. I... More

Came here having no idea what to expect (had never been to a Canadian hot spring before) and enjoyed it thoroughly. Came in the middle of February so to be outside in the middle of winter in a swimming poor, looking around at the hills, was pretty cool. We did come when they were under construction, so I'm not sure... More
