Ngawha springs was probably nice 40 years ago. Doesn’t look smell or feel clean. There were another couple there when we went and they like us did not go in the pools. We had heard they were special springs, but need to be cleaned up badly, if left for much longer like they are, it will be very difficult to get people back even if a lot of money is spent. We visited 2 other hot springs that were done very well, clean and inviting – shame on ngawha, they should not be advertised in the condition they are in.
