A stunning rustic setting

Dunton Hot Springs is a perfectly restored former Ghost town located in the Rockies, if you are looking to really get away from it all then look no further than this indulgent luxury resort.  Life is simple at Dunton Hot Springs, from a game of pool to reading in the library or taking a stroll around the resorts grounds, however, for the more adventurous *activities include Horse riding, hiking trails, day trips to local National Parks and Fly Fishing.  The pace of life in this romantic old mining town certainly slows and that allows you to take time in selecting your meals from the new daily menu that uses many local and regional ingredients, some of which are sourced from the resorts own farm and vineyard. Accommodations include tented glamping style at Dunton River Camp or wooden cabins with all the trimmings that really give you that western vibe. If you are looking to strike gold then a visit to Dunton Hot Springs awaits....

Best hotel in the world

Manchester, United Kingdom

We were two friends travelling together on a road trip. We didn’t want to leave Dunton and it was the absolute highlight of our trip. This is our new favourite hotel in the world. Absolutely everything was fantastic. Special mention to Eric and Charlie who made us feel so welcome. The setting is unbeatable, the people wonderful and the food divine. We will be back!

Now I'm Depressed

Washington DC, District of Columbia

We had my low-key bachelorette party here last week over 4 days. Just got back Sunday night and I'm missing it! I've been watching the webcam every day to ease the separation anxiety. We stayed in Dunton Store cabin, so we had our own little hot spring out back. The weather was gorgeous and the grounds were idyllic. What made the experience over-the-top, however, was the level of customer service. Erik, Justin, Maddie, Sara, Basil, Sweet, Charlie and the rest of the team catered to our every whim without a trace of judgment. The food was spectacular, from lunch to dinner. I can't wait to return!
