Great for apres-ski

Always nice to soak in the springs after a day of skiing. The lockers work great, and the change rooms are large enough that people are not tripping over each other.

It gets busy but is still very much enjoyable! The view is great and the water is perfect temperature. Add to this cool mountain air and you're not gonna want to leave.

Very relaxing. We went early in the morning because we know it gets very busy. And good thing we did. Just as we left the springs we're filling up quick.

It is a great place to stop in Banff but the cashier at the front did not explain anything!!! We did not know where to go or if we needed towels or anything! I had to come back up twice to get towels and change (because the lockers will eat your change) Nothing was explained. There was confused patrons everywhere.... More

Nothing fancy about the hot springs, can only hold 200 people but did offer a good view. Parking wasn't the best, you have to walk a ways. We haven't tried radium hot springs so nothing to compare to.

Went to the Hot Springs because everyone told us to. The washrooms were disgusting, the change rooms were a maze and very out dated. The soap pumps for the disgusting showers did not work. The swim suit spin dryer did not work. It's basically a big hot pool that a bunch of people and noisy kids to soak in with... More

I had a free pass to the spa so although my hotel had a hot pool I thought I would give this place a try. I was very glad that I did. I headed over there one evening after skiing was done, using the local bus service. The journey time was about 15 mins and would be shorter if you... More

Awesome experience, inexpensive and you must rent the historic swimsuits for a photo op. The view is amazing.

It was my first time and I didn't really know what to expect but it was a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Water is clear, warm and the surrounding is nice to see. I will definitely go back to enjoy everything the Hot Springs has to offer.
