I paid my first visit to Stamford leisure pool for many years today, I went with my grandchildren. The changing rooms are a disgrace. I see some of the reviews say it needs a refit, but general cleaning would improve things a lot. The toilets were dirty, I was not happy with my grandchildren using them, no loo rolls in... More

pool itself isnt too bad, kids enjoy it, but the water is cold & the changing rooms are awful, need a comlete refit, or at very least a good scrub, hairdryers are useless

I was there with three children (4, 7, 9). It was perfect place for the youngest one but they all enjoyed it there. It's not a place where you want to just swim.

Great place for the kids. Plenty of spectators seats pool-side so if you don't fancy a dip you can keep an eye on the kids. Typical leisure pool with spouts and waves etc. Cafe for tea/coffee snacks. Easy parking.

What once was a great leisure pool has deteriorated to the point where I travel now to the new pool at Corby. SKDC has neglected maintenance of the changing rooms, dirty and in poor repair and visually unappealing after around 20 years use -

Visited on a Sunday morning with grandchildren. Eldest (4) is a very confident swimmer and has been swimming for some months. Was not allowed to take the slide becuase he was approx 3 cm short on the height guide. Very acceptable until the realisation hit that a taller child but still needing to wear armbands was allowed to use the... More

Been here a few times and everytime the smell on urine as you enter the changing rooms hits you, ive complained a few times and they say its the drains!! Get them sorted then! Also walking about with a frozen wraped up baby (due to half an hour in very cold water) and a 3 year old on soaking wet... More

Only good for kids. My boys 14 & 11 enjoy it but my 14 year old thinks Corby pool is much better. For adults I find there is no were to swim lengths. There is big slide and wave machine.

Looks nothing like the photo you're showing! Great time for kids under 10 if the weather is bad-wave machine and fun slide-does get busy though. No good for serious swimming though. I attend the gym there which is adequate.

Had not swum here for some time as I had picked up a verrrry nasty ear infection on an earlier visit. The moment one entered the ladies changing room one was hit with the ghastly smell of urine. Floors swimming in water. Disgusting. Tiles to pool verry slippery so I was terrified of falling over. Rails on ladder to get... More
