I adore this place. The prices are fantastic, the spa is the best I have ever seen; it really is paradise. We had dinner on one visit and even the food was brilliant. The staff are well trained and helpful, the owner is a delight. I don't know enough positive adjectives to describe just how much I loved my visits to the Lost Springs.

The Lost Spring is a unique and lovely thermal pool destination. This special place feels like being in a different world - beautiful setting, peaceful, therapeutic, with plenty of quiet places, fabulous water temperature choices, lots of fresh water to drink, food and refreshments readily available if wanted, and a very nice cafe/restaurant. How do I recommend it? GO!

A true spa environment for a perfectly cooked brunch on the first day of 2016. Had a lovely chat to owner Alan who shared his story and his passion for this special place which is very well run and exudes tranquility.
