Great Experience

It was the best experience in NZ. Time we got to spend in the bath wasn't enough for the money we papaid. The staff wasn't very welcoming and bit rude, but if you ignore them, then the experience itself was great.

Hells Gate - Mud Bath and Spa

Was pleasantly surprised by the Geothermal walk which was very interesting and a nice prelude to my main reason for attending. The mud bath was very relaxing, although times are monitored closely and after 20 minutes you are asked to move to one of the several heated water pools. Don't wear any expensive swimwear as it will smell of sulphur afterwards and must be washed ASAP. All of this information is given in the baths. Overall very relaxing and the free shuttle bus from Rotorua was great.

Review Hells Gate

I gave this a Fair rating because I was really disappointed with the temperatures of the pool. After we did the 15 or 20 mins in the mud pool, we were told that we could go into the big pool. We had been warned that the temperature in the pools would be hot... but it was not so. In fact the showers were hotter than the pool.

Great but smelly

My partner had a great time in the mid and Sulfur, be sure to know you will smell for a day or too afterwards and getting the smell out yours clothes is hard but would happily do it again
