Bizarre queuing system and poor VFM

Visited the beach pool on the Sunday after half term. The pool was ostensibly packed so they had us queuing outside in the rain. After waiting around 30mins we finally go in only... read more

very badly designed, I almost drown here with my 6 year old grandson when he fell off the float and we both found we were in the deep end, it took me a few minutes to get a grip after having to be rescued it does have a sign saying non swimmers etc, but you can easily get caught up... More

My children have always loved it here. However it been going for decades and now it feels very old and tired. The whole place is feels grim and dirty. The changing rooms are completely disgusting! The place needs a revamp and a really good clean!!! We won't be going back.

Visited the beach pool on the Sunday after half term. The pool was ostensibly packed so they had us queuing outside in the rain. After waiting around 30mins we finally go in only to find the pool felt barely half full. I understand if the pool is too packed this spills the experience for all but given the length of... More

The floors of the changing rooms are really dirty since the council stopped running the pool and Fusion took over. Also there is no music like there used to be and the water in the pool is not as warm. Cuts backs!!!!

First impressions from the outside is of a fun time but the outside is in need of tidying up and perhaps a feature to make that more enticing. Each session is timed by coloured bands that should last 90 minutes so save time and have swim wear already on! The changing area is small and very limited family changing booths... More

I am a member of the Oasis for my gym membership, good value for money and they do offer use of another site for classes as they do not have a studio. Classes are good, service at Bunyan is not, no cover for holidays for classes, lack of communication when the site is out of use, etc, etc. The pool... More

My daughters and I had a great time... The facilities and the building are starting to look a little tired but slides and all water features were working well... We had a good time and would go again.

Went to this Pool for the very first time and it is great for kids but really expensive. For 2 Adults and 1 Child it cost £20.50 which is a lot of money for most families. No explanation as to what the wrist bands are for when you pay. You have to ask. They have various colours and you get... More
