“Dinner at the Springs A Great Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

After being in one of the worst dining experiences last night, The Springs completely rejuvenated my over all impression of fine dining out the lake north of Nelson. We were promptly seated and told the specials warmly greeted by seasoned staff. Our server was for sure one of the highlights of the meal. He was a great attitude that one can only hope to have serve you. My friend Ordered the Oysters and says they were very good but could have been larger. We both ordered the same Entree's The T-bone steak with pepper corn sauce, mushrooms and prawns. The steaks were amazing after a long 12 hour day of fishing. The sauce was well worth the additional costs involved. The mushrooms were a great portion, however I felt like the prawns were not very big. The vegetables and mash potatoes on the side were very new and well prepared perfectly. Drinks and over all service quality are very high at this place and I recommend it to anyone looking to have a great meal. The only thing people should be aware of is this is not a place you can typically just walk up and get a table. Make a reservation or you may be waiting for a table.

We have be visiting these hot spings for years , as we live close by.
This time decided to treat ourselves to a overnight stay at the hotel. The hot springs as always were fantastic , good temperature and clean.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and professionalism of the restaurant.
Some of the most professional and courteous servers we have experiences - good job guys!!
As for the room very nice, the only complaint would be the bed quality, as not the most comfortable, this is the only reason for the 4 stars.

Overall recommend as a nice relaxing getaway.

Pools, food and restaurant staff were awesome. The woman at check out was very nice, but at arrival the woman that greeted us seemed a little put out but in no way rude or mean. Our servers Colin (breakfast) and I believe John (Friday evening) were great, very knowledgeable about the resort and the area. Enjoyed the surrounding area too. Nelson and Whitewater Ski resort are worth the drive. Room was small but very clean, modern, and comfortable.

Room Tip: Face the lake, the view is worth the extra money.

Go south at Revelstoke BCand make your way to Nelson BC. Or vice versa.
Ainsworth Hot Springs is just north of Nelson. The hot pool even has a cave you can go into where the water flows out of the mountain in a little waterfall you can go under.
Great food in the resturant when I was there.

The renovations are a great improvement, especially the walk-in shower. All staff were very friendly and willing to assist. The only down-side of our two day stay was the evening meals; although the food was good, most of the vegetables were barely warm. Being a light sleeper the lack of soundproofing between rooms was an issue.

Room Tip: We always choose the lake view rooms - it is great to enjoy your first morning coffee looking out ov...

The rooms have been remodeled with new bathrooms and new heating/cooling units. Super clean quiet rooms with all the amenities you could ask for, and they provide bathrobes for being able to go down to the pool with - even better! We make the trip several times a year and look forward to it each and every time.

We stayed at the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. We checked in with ease and enjoyed our room facing the lake. The resort was a bit pricey, but clean and very quiet on the third floor. We took a dip in the pool and experienced the caves which were relaxing. We took advantage of the pool and caves at 8:30 A.M. when only resort guests were admitted. It was basically ours for a while. Great place!

Room Tip: Spring for the higher priced room facing the lake. Spurge for once.
