Having never visited before today I was a bit dubious as read some of the other reviews on here and was expecting the worse !! What a pleasant surprise, clean, fresh, bright looking play area, no dirty carpets or tables. Plenty of seating and a small refreshments area. A lovely decorated party room with ample space for all adults too.... More

My partner and I decided to take our 10 month old daughter to giggles, after having walked past it many a times! ...I wish we'd kept going! The place is very rundown and in need of some tlc and a paint job! There was food and small bits of dirt etc all over the floor ( which a child could... More

Visited today with my 4 year old. Entry was only £2.50 and it was lovely and quiet. Not been for a while so decided to pop in. Play frame was very clean and it was so nice to see areas that had been worn/ torn replaced with new material and netting. Didn't order any food so can't comment on that... More

Had a great birthday party here today for my little boy for his 3rd birthday, we had children ranging from 1-9 years and the soft play catered for them all, staff were very helpful on arrival showing us to our tables quickly and dealing with a very tangled bunch of helium balloons that we had bought with us. The kids... More

Took my grandchildren there recently, as it had a half price offer on entrance fees and it was the single worst play centre we have been to! I'm glad I didn't pay full price!! Management were more interested in showing off their new puppies, than dealing with customers. Young staff were rushed off their feet at the coffee/snack bar and... More

I've been coming to Giggles for years and since the new owner has taken over I've seen a huge improvement in cleanliness, menu, prices and administration. Yes, there are "rules" because there are people who don't know how to behave or control their children. The rules or simple - no photography - what's wrong with that, get off Facebook and... More

This is a good place to go for your children to burn off excess energy, and enjoy themselves, the shoe numbering system is a good idea and offers some security. Prices are reasonable but a time limit is applied when they are busy, but when we went prices were lower to reflect this, a welcome idea,we will definitely go again,... More

I found it very run down and in desperate need of some maintenance . The staff were very unprofessional. I ordered from the cafe area and was rudely leant over for a member of staff helping herself to food , then saw another member of staff helping himself and another walking around with a mouthful of food . A male... More
