Buckstaff takes you back in time to the early 1900's. It is a must experience for those that visit the Hot Springs historical area. I had the traditional spa treatment that included whirlpool mineral bath, sitz bath, steam box, heated towel wrap and a 20 minutes message. All for under $80 for an hour and 1/2. It was an experience... More

This place was a neat experience and the value is pretty good. But if you're wanting a more relaxing and private experience this isn't really the place to go. I would recommend this place if you're wanting an authentic experience in relation to that time period but that's about it. It seemed more like an assembly line, one thing after... More

The best "old" bathhouse on the row!! The staff were very nice. The bath, steams, massage very perfect! I think it's a great value for your money. Will return.

I loved this trip into the history of relaxation! The spas of the past knew how to make you get rid of stress! The Buckstaff is not new and updated, but its methods are wonderful! You walk in as you are. There's no need to take anything and the staff does the rest. Sara made me feel comfortable because you... More

As many others have pointed out - do not expect soft lights and new age music. Do not expect a great deal of personal privacy - you will be naked and some others around you will be naked and some others around you will be clothed. Expect that you will be touched. Your bath attendant will scrub your back, chest,... More

Buckstaff Bathhouse is a marvelous facility to take a hot mineral water bath and massage in Hot Springs. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I left feeling refreshed and relaxed. I highly recommend it.

Her five star service included: 1) 20 minute soak with scrub down. 2) 10 minute rest covered in hot towels with a cold towel over her face while being served ice water and hand fed ice cubes 3) following...

The Buckstaff is a traditional bathhouse that takes you through the traditional process when the bathhouses were popular. The staff is friendly. You will have one person that helps you through every step. Relaxing in the tub of the hot spring water is the highlight. This is a must when visiting.
