Went on a weekend.... It was crowded. If you are looking for a relaxing "spa like" atmosphere, this isn't it. However, if you like people watching and you dont mind crowds, it's something to add to your visit.

Banff Hot Springs is essentially an outdoor swimming pool filled using water from the hot springs. It’s small so gets crowded easily but it does have good views. We also visited Miette Hot Springs which we much preferred but would still recommend a quick visit...More

This was a great experience, sitting in a hot springs in the Snow looking out at the glorious Rockies. There was a lot of other people; but it's no surprise that this is a popular place to spend an afternoon. Very good value for money.

The view of the sky on a clear night is nice however it isn’t the prettiest hot springs I’ve ever visited. Like a large hot tub with lots of people. The lockers are annoying, beware you can only use that token once!

We were there in the afternoon, it was busier than if you went in the morning but nothing unreasonable. The evening is supposed to be good as it gets dusk/dark.
