Waingaro hot pools.

Who has been there and what do you think of the place?
I went there on Friday 22-1-10, the place is ran down and the water looked dirty but that could have been sun block. (yea right)
Their prices have gone up again $10 for adult and $5 for children, but there idea of a child is under the age of 13 years. So my 13 year old is now an adult (hmmm the age at other places is 16) is there legislation that says what the age on a child should be in NZ

I thought that seen the price had gone up that they had made some improvements to the place. But nothing has been done to the place for years. They can’t even offer hot showers in the changing rooms; witch is not much to ask for since that water they expect people to swim in feels dirty.

They are running an advertisement on TV that was made in the 1980s showing a flash well-maintained place with bumper boats for hire, well the bumper boats have not been going for years.

When I tried to bring these points up with them and asked for a refund I was told, “we don’t have to give you a refund as you have had a swim”

I for one will not be going back until I know that the place has had a change of owners

I would love to here your thoughts about the place if you have been there.

Ps Hamilton need a spa service for people that need it for heath complaints like chronic pain. So we don’t have to travel that far.
