Was in the Hillsborough area for the first time today (from East Yorkshire), took my 2 year old grandaughter swimming. Car Park is not fit for purpose in that it does not cater for the size of the leisure centre. Could see immediately the car park was crammed full with no parking spaces at all. Had to drive round and... More

Having paid double the price of NE Derbyshire pools to get admission we had to put up with a whistle happy attendant who should have apparently retired years ago. No time for such miserable people. Warning! Over zelous pool attendant who likes to tell off little girls! Not be going back there. Rip off and crap.

First off, may we say that we are pass holders and visit at least twice a week for the swimming pool mainly at the moment which we use as our 'release valves' for the week (we are both carers) so its greatly needed. The staff are great, we need to say this first but we have a few gripes about... More

The staff are lovely, the changing area is well maintained but does get busy especially if wanting to change a baby. The pool is well thought out & fun for little ones especially when wave machine is on. The slides are great and love no hight restrictions on blue slide meaning younger trill seekers can also join in. Cafe is... More

Visited here with our young son because he likes the pool. It is a good inexpensive way to spend a few hours with the family. Liked the timing system which means that everyone gets a fair chance of enjoying themselves.

Not a bad pool. Two larger water slides and a smaller one for kiddies on the "pirate ship". There was also a wave pool (which seemed to start with little warning! Could have done with a lifeguard blowing a whistle or something so that we could get the kids into shallower water) Not sure what was going on with the... More

Its OK, but my biggest bugbear is all the people who just sit around on the weight machines just texting or looking at their phones all the time and won't move from there! They aren't even using the machines. Drives me mad! Will be cancelling my membership because I am tired of not being able to use the machines because... More

We went for the first time to the Swim a sing session. Really engaging session for babies and toddlers. Only issues we experienced were due to the small number of family changing rooms, there are 4 only 3 of which had baby tables in. Also old nappies on floor in couple of the rooms.The other thing was the temperature of... More

I took my daughter aged 3 to the morning leisure session, parking was fine although limited spaces in the overspill, I could see this being a problem in peak times.The receptionists were friendly upon arrival and the cost was reasonable. Changing rooms clean, and lockers £1, which is refunded. The pool and the childrens area was alittle dated and in... More
