Took my 15 week old daughter for her very first swimming experience, to the timetabled toddler session specifically for that week. Upon arrival it wasnt running. I asked to check for the baby pool temp and I was told 27C, when questioned about this being too cold for small children, I was told it's always this temperature (should be around... More

We decided to go to the pool at Hillsborough as it had all the things my children were looking for in a pool, and our local pool is boring. They were not disappointed! The pool has great activity areas for children. It has a baby pool which is perfect for little children, with a small slide, probably most suited to... More

This has a fantastic pool with two fast slides and a pirate ship for younger children. Parking is free and the changing rooms are clean. The cafe isn't too bad but could do with a healthier menu as my pet hate is everything with chips.

I tried emailing twice to get answers about the water features but nobody replied! In the end, after nearly a week, I had to phone. Poor customer service! We decided to go during 'Splish splash' session which was advertised as 'perfect for young families looking for a relaxing swim'. Well, it was hardly relaxing! It was far too busy, making... More

My son was invited to a party at HLC and part of the deal was that an accompanying parent could use the gym for free. I thought this was excellent and came prepared in my gym gear, hair scraped back, no make up - you get the picture. The receptionist at the Fitness Unlimited desk was pleasant and polite but...

I took my mum, 3 yr old daughter and 4 month old son swimming. We really enjoyed everything about Hillsborough. There is a small slide in a separate baby pool which includes bubbles so we could relax while my daughter went on the slide. There is a larger slide on the pirate ship in the main pool which was big... More

We found this leisure centre really expensive, its over £6 per adult and then over £5 for kids, so a family of 4 are paying more than £20 just to go swmmming, and then if its busy you have an allocated time to have to get out. We went here with our 2 boys aged 5 and 3, our 5... More
