“Pleasant afternoon swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We are both 60 and called in for a swim , it was very quiet with the odd noisy child here and there.
The changing rooms are mixed and very much fit for purpose. The tiled floor was very slippy in the changing room though, my wife pointed out that the sides of the baths were dirty, on closer inspection had to agree with her.

“Day at the pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We took our baby and toddler swimming and they both loved it. The diving pool floor is brought up to shallow level during the day and filled with water toys/inflatibles which the kids loved. The cost for a family to go swimming is very reasonable. Is a good day out for the kids.

“Grubby well in need of a facelift”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

place is in need of a revamp as quite grubby in places, staff look uninterested, by the look of some pool staff they well. . .prob couldnt save anyone that came into trouble or would be anoyed to have to do somthing. changing room are minging and always at minus 10 degrees. as of prices dont get me started going to stop everyone going just shortly creep up slightly all the time. gym is full of wasters and people on benifits getting use of it for nothing or heavily subsidised. while others pay a fortune to use it with these people. aswell as the gym staff not having a clue about anything in the place and not interested whatsoever. would not recomend to anyone

“Grubby”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely disgusting! Pool always has things floating in it and with mixed changing........
Cold with leaky roof! Swim instructor Pamela was extremely rude and nasty to children. Not Recommended!

“Could do with a facelift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I have been using this pool since I was my daughters age and it has hardly changed. The pool and staff are great but the local authority needs to give the building a make-over. There was a scheduled facelift 18 months ago but it was postponed/cancelled. The Gym is good value for money compared to the larger franchise ones but it is smaller. I have not used any of the courts or halls to comment on them.
