The slide is great fun, for all age groups, with a more open swimming area that is great fun when the waves are turned on! The maze part, bar when the waves are on of course can be relaxing as well as the outdoor area. There is a children's swimming part with shallower waters for those just learning to swim... More

As a previous reviewer said, I think you need to appreciated this is an older pool and cannot be fairly compared with very modern facilities. Given you are there to swim its not too bad although those waiting around will not have the most pleasant time.

They have changed the relax and swim times and given more time to mother and baby swimming. I think they presume that because you are a pensioner that you get up at the crack of dawn. I know it is important for children to swim but it would be nice if we could have just one morning without them.

Summer break would possibly be the worst time to attend - swimmers are put on a coloured band time span, peak time had orange bands, which only gave us 1 hour of swimming time. The pool was full of people, and during the wave warnings, there is hardly any room to move. Just swimming in a corner is bother, without... More

This pool is very well used but because of the large amount of People that use it I can honestly say that the experience of it is not the best and you often find you are jostled as you swim and try and enjoy yourself. Too many people in one space for me!

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
