Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

The cave itself, the basin, and the sign boarded access from the walkway above, were fascinating.
Unfortunately the presentation was terrible: the video projected on 4 large screens contained no information about the hot springs - it was all about other parks in Canada. The smaller screens offered four stories, only one of which was about Banff, and even then not about the springs. What a wasted opportunity - it could have told the story of the 'discovery' and subsequent exploitation and development.
The covering up of the bathing pool is disastrous, and the games on top just detract from the atmosphere. Why not leave the pool as it was, perhaps with a transparent cover to protect it?
Our guide was quiet and lacking in confidence, and showed us only what we could see for ourselves, with the one exception that he pointed out the tiny snails in the pond. He didn't show us the upper access at all.
The website banffandbeyond.com states that there is a café on site, but there was no food available beyond a tube of Pringles.
I should add that the guy who sold us tickets was very friendly and helpful.

Good place to stop and learn something about Banff Hotspring. Have some games to play with families.

We did not go into the historic site. We were keen to explore the area outdoors. The Roam bus (Yellow route 4) was efficient transport from our hotel to the Cave and Basin bus stop, right outside the information building at the car park. It was an uphill walk to the historic site and the start of the Marsh boardwalk - our intended walk. We had read that the warm spring water makes the plant and animal life in this area unique. We didn't see any birds (even from the bird hide) or aquatic life, but did see the white and green algae and a little squirrel posing on a fence! It was a pleasant walk. The path was well maintained and clearly signposted, with informative boards along the way. There were 4 trails of differing lengths which would be great to explore if time allowed.

Interesting in itself, with numerous exhibits and signage describing the features. To maximize the experience, see the movie in the building near the pool, easy to overlook as it is not marked well. And, most important, walk past the pool and see the building dedicated to immigrant detainees during the World Wars. That is also not publicized or particularly well marked, so note it for yourself. A big plus, Cave and Basin is on the outstanding bus service in town. Drops you off right at the door and very little wait between buses. There is an admission charge if you don't have the annual Discovery national park pass. Note that the hot springs baths are nearby, one stop away, so you can easily combine the two if you wish.

Received a recommendation to play a visit. A worthwhile stop and very interesting indeed.

The guide and information shared was great. Also the display and audio with screen shots are amazing.

The costumes and history is brilliant.

The cave with the hot spring is compelling, although the sulphurous smell caused one of us to bail. The outdoor spring pool is very nice and the ranger did a good job of talking about it. The exhibit hall had a large-screen film playing, it was okay. Then behind the other buildings was a special exhibit on the WWI prisoner camps that were in the area, unusual aspect and very interesting.

As my very hard to please husband said, it was a school trip very worth doing!

This not a huge attraction but what is there is interesting, made all the more fascinating by the 1.30pm free tour. The guide was absolutely brilliant and her passion for the place really helped explain the importance of what we were looking at.

If you're looking for a few hours to fill this is a lovely bit of local history

I loved this place! It stars with a short introduction on the history of the Banff area, and the national park, plus some information about the geology of the springs. Then you proceed through a tunnel to the cave spring, which is simply incredible (and sulphurous!). Outside there are some boardwalk trails around the area where you can see the springs and there are spectacular views across Banff from there. This place is also the only home to a special snail, which I loved.

If you are in Banff, then it's worth a look.

We were staying locally and had a Parks Canada pass so the entry was free. We walked from Banff, it's a nice pleasant 20ish minute walk, and then got a bus back which costs just $2 per person.

There's a lot of info to read and big screens with films to watch and a small thermal pool indoors. Outside there's a lovely walk up to the other thermal pools. However, the top one is very small!

We did have a good chat with a member of staff about the endangered snails that live in the pools, this was very interesting.

very disappointed in the cave and basin experience! The cave walk must be about 200M max in length in a 36" wide corridor, if you are over 5'6 expect to be ducking a good portion of the way to prevent banging your head. I saw many seniors with canes trying to get through this dimly lit path and I was a bit worried about their safety. The stench of sulfur in such a tiny space is overpowering and the pool of water is so small and not as beautiful blue as so many internet pictures make it look! Basin outside also not spectacular in any way. These both looked like man made ponds that did not deserve recognition. Best part of the cave and basin for us was stopping to play life-sized snakes and ladders outside in the courtyard. You are NOT ALLOWED to touch the hot springs water (this includes on the boardwalk paths which are free to walk around the cave and basin). I understand the logic but for me not being able to feel the warm water trickling down the mountain side makes it no more special than any other fabulous hiking spot in Banff. For me, I would not recommend going here unless you have a few days in Banff and are hitting all the spots. For just a day trip, you will see so much more beauty if you park at bow falls viewpoint and do the art walk along the bow river which will bring you right to the downtown core. An easy walk and lots to see.
