Changing rooms are adequate, the pool fine if tending to overcrowd, there's no real place to swim, it's a splash and play pool really. Staff really do need lessons in manners, they're not rude just incompetent.

I used to go to the Riviera Centre as a child and not much has changed since then. My daughter enjoyed the wave machine and the flume. However, the whole place is in need of a massive overhaul, as it looks worn out from top to bottom.

Well worth visiting this centre. We went to the swimming pool when it opened at 9am and this meant that the queues to the flume were short. The wave machine was great fun. Changing rooms cleaner than most council run centres although limited changing cubicles and the showers were not strong enough to properly was long hair
