"Aliwal North has one of the country's most famous mineral springs, around which an attractive resort has been developed. The main spring delivers over 2 million litres of water per day at a temperature of 35 degrees Centigrade, while a second spring delivers over 1 million litres daily. Several large swimming-pools, one of which is enclosed, are fed by these springs and there are also private baths, a Turkish bath and a massage centre." - [Source: Guide Map for the Tourist Republic of South Africa - issued by the Dept. Of Tourism-1980]

2020: The complex has become completely run down and derelict although due to seepage of rain water the main pool looks almost perfect.
