Such a shame but it was not good. They are going through a refurb to the changing area at the minute, fair enough, but half the 'attractions' were broken - no waves, one flume broken and the list goes on. The 'Rapids' have the slowest current on earth, the toys that should have been in the toddler pool were non-existent... More

We are very sorry to hear of the disappointment experienced during your recent visit. As you have stated there is major refurbishment currently taking place within various areas of the facility and although we appreciate this is causing some issues the only alternative would have been a complete closure of around 4 months and we felt the majority of customers...

I have been there Number Of times and I'm not the only one to comment that the water is COLD I really like that pool and it's not to expensive and close to where I live but I'm not able to return as its to cold for my 3 year old son.

Thank you for your feedback. The temperatures in the pools are set at such levels, within guideline parameters from the industry's 'governing bodies' , to ensure the water is suitable for various types of bathers and equally as important is maintained at a hygienic level to allow the chemicals in the pool to work. We do offer advice on our... More

First time back to the Aquadome in 2 years an in that time the hygiene standards have dropped drastically. Yes there was obvious building work being carried out but, that does not excuse the fact that various areas, a considerable distance away from the refurbishment, where in a disgusting state. On our way up to one of the flumes, some... More

During a recent visit to Inverness with our three kids we expected our visit to the swimming pool to be a highlight. Sadly it was not to be the case. We started off feeling frustrated trying to get changed in a family changing room in which you couldn't swing a cat, never mind deal with three excited children. Frustration quickly... More
