Glacier Hot Pools Reviews
We stayed next door at the hotel. But the best discount on hot pool price came from our kayaking trip across the street. The pools are nice but the private pools fill up early. So book ahead. 3... more »
My husband and I had booked a couples massage, in the end he had the massage and I had a wonderful facial. Afterwards we relaxed in the pools. It was lovely to have the choice of water temperatures.... more »
Booked Private Hot Pool, great value for 45 minutes....was more than long enough. Clean facilities, friendly staff. Pools set in beautiful native Bush, private surroundings. Private shower and toilet.
Lovely little covered 'outdoor' hot pools. Steam and shrubbery give a slightly secluded vibe. 3 temperatures for the pools give a good variety on heat.
