Harrison Hot Springs, Accommodation

Except from my name on the room reading as ‘Natt Samyciawoo’ I have nothing negative to say about our one night stay at the resort.
We had booked a campsite in Harrison but due to torrential rain we abandoned that plan and went to the nicest hotel in town instead (a wise move if we say so ourselves!).
The room was small and a little cramped due to it being old. We had lots of baby stuff including a crib in the room which didn’t help matters.
This hotel has six pools. Yes, six! They all get their hot water from the natural hot springs. They differ in temperature which is great for the whole family.
Some are indoors, the others outside. Oh, did I mention the spa as well? My wife had a pedicure while my daughter(2years old) and I bounced on the bed and watched nature programs with ‘monkeys’ and other animals she recognized .
The next morning included a buffet breakfast and a return to the hot springs to relax and play.
The room was $159 per night which is not cheap but rather than being damp or even wet in our tent we feel it was well worth the expense.
The true test of an hotel like this is “does it feel like you have been away longer than one night?” and the answer is a definite YES.
