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

It is true that a substantial amount of work is taking place at the moment as part of an upgrade of the facility and we hope when you next visit you will find things much improved. The comments...

Brilliant way to bring in the New Year in Northern Park in Inverness. Good music and good company. Fireworks to bring in the New Year.

Ok so the pools are a bit tired especially the fun pool but they are great. The should do offers on the entrance fee and also memberships for pool users only (not everyone wants to use the gym)

Thank you very much for your review, you will be pleased to know that we are currently in the process of refurbishing many parts of the facility and this work should be completed by the Summer.

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

Gym is good, albeit some stuff doesn't have the electronic link you might like. The pool is good for the family. Worth a visit if you are looking for something to do

We are sorry to read of the issue you experienced, it is correct that swimwear with a zip cannot be used on the flumes as there is the potential for this to cause damage. This policy should be enforced by all our associates and in light of your feedback we will be reiterating this to all at their next training... More

I've just read some reviews dating back two years and I feel I'd like to make my own contribution as I found some of the comments a wee tad harsh. I tend to use the olympic pool and the health suite so I can't comment on the other services. Although the level of cleanliness is more than acceptable I have... More

Thank you very much for your comments, we do already have a pool vac which is used on a regular basis overnight.
