Avoid this venue -poorly organised - unnecessary queuing; disgusting changing facilities - terrible state of disrepair. Greedy management not reinvesting :-((

The whole site on the whole is rather tired and needs a mega face lift, but the kids always love it here and never want to leave!

This is not Center Parcs and how anyone could compare it to that is madness! This is a fun, clean place to bring your kids pure and simple. It is not modern needs a little TLC here and there but I would not say it is over priced for what it is. The staff I encountered were friendly and helpful.... More

While everything you need is there, it all looks a bit dated and in need of an update. Not so much of a problem for those swimming but if you are a parent waiting you feel you are in the 80's. Cafe staff were friendly but they really needed organising. Food took forever and wasn't really worth the wait. Would... More

While the facilities are more than adequate and kids enjoy it, the staff are miserable and the cafe is a rip off! It would be nice if they advertised on their site that you only get a guarantee of one and half hour minimum time in pool. Still that's Bedford borough council for you.

Just got back from a short break at Centre Parcs. The kids were still buzzing about the water activities there, so decided to keep them happy and take them to something similar (or so I thought). The Oasis Beach Pool in Bedford was very disappointing. Tiny changing cubicles, hunt for a locker that works, grubby toilets, piles of dirt at... More

Only went here as no where else near with any water rides. Needs a face lift badly and I don't like the fact that people in the gym can watch people swimming.

Kids enjoyed themselves and spent a good couple of hours in the pool. A bit pricey at £6 each child The changing rooms are pretty grotty and in need of an update. The toilets were rather disgusting and smelly, the showers were in a poor state and there was pools of water around the pool side that spectators have to... More

We went during the summer hols. We got there early and went straight in. Those coming later had 10 minute queue. We were advised that time limit of a minimum of 90 minutes was in operation. We had exactly 90 minutes! Staff were very friendly, efficient with lots of lifeguards in evidence. The water was clean and warm enough. We... More

The kids are desperate to go to this place and it is the only pool in Bedford with a slide/ wave machine etc as far as I know, so they will always make some money. However, it is so expensive considering how run down and grubby it feels. I will be doing all I can to avoid the place, especially... More
