Could do better!

The gym is ok and has a couple of good team members on board, notably Jill and Joe who express an interest in their customers and not themselves. Also the mobile music machine overbears your own choice of music if you’re playing your own stuff.

Good but could improve
Oct 2021
We went to King Alfred Leisure Center to the swimming pool. We found the temperature is perfect for us,but the weater is a little dirty. Concerning the entrance, the price is correct. The staff are friendly, althoug they could give us some advice to improve our swimming abilities. Regarding the changing rooms, we believe they are empty and massive. But again, the floor looks a little bit dirty. In our opinion, the schedule is good because have many opportunities to swim.
We will return.

Sunday morning family outing
Jun 2019 • Family
We go there quite frequently as our grandchildren really enjoy themselves. I guess it could do with modernisation but it is functional and, if the kids are happy, we are too; however, the miserable bored face at reception that has greeted us on our last two recent visits on a Sunday morning around 9.30am was really off putting. People should always be greeted with a smile and a good morning, not a scowl.

Tired leisure centre but close to beach
Apr 2019 • Family
Visited here at the weekend to use the pool. Kids had fun splashing about and the change facilities were good. However the whole place looks tired although cheaper then my local leisure centre but not as nice.

Rude staff

Customer service is the most important thing, and in this place they should run the training for the two lady in the reception, rude, unhelpful about all the service that you pay for.

Avoid this place if you want to swim
Sep 2018 • Solo
This is (was) a regular place for me and has never been particularly good but is my closest pool. I would rather get a bus and go somewhere where the staff are not so lazy.
A woman with a float backed up the middle swimming lane and refused to move causing a huge backlog. The staff said nothing and I had no choice but to leave the pool after 10 minutes.
I thought; that's fine, it's annoying but one of those things, however when I mentioned it to the receptionist and asked if I could get a refund after not being able to swim I was told I would have to speak to the duty manager, Tracey.
The lady Radioed Tracy telling her the situation, to which she replied 'I'm poolside and won't be up for half an hour. Give him a comment card'. Yeah thanks very much for that Tracey.
God help you if you start drowning as the staff probably wouldn't notice or perhaps not be bothered to do anything.
Best avoided!

Not a good experience at all, Very disappointed...
Aug 2018 • Family
I have not been to the King Alfred for around a decade and I was very disappointed when I decided to pop in pop in with my daughter and mum, The entrance lobby is looking very tired. The reception just looks like chaos inside and the first disappointment of the day only had small swim nappies in stock which is no good for my 2-year-old.

Walking downstairs to the changing rooms the experience did not get much better, the smell of urine was overpowering, the changing rooms and the floor itself was dirty.

We got changed and headed out and were further disappointed in the lack of provision for children, my daughter got bored easily and we didn't spend as long as we had intended to.

After we had got out my mum and my daughter went to get changed and I went to shower in one of the cubicles the only one free at the time was the end one nearest the wall and found that all the water from the others was pooling at my feet and wasn't draining away.

This place is in serious need of some TLC, considering it one of two pools for the City it is not a good advertisement for our great City.

Gross debris everywhere.
Sep 2017 • Family
The general pool is quite big and would be nice to swim in if not for the nappies, hair and other trash that people have dumped there. There were also some kids biting bits of foam off the floats and spitting them in to the pool without the lifeguard telling them off. The changing rooms are likely to have old nappies.
The shower drains are all clogged up with hair and old shampoo.
Overall I think the state of it is appalling.

Great value
Aug 2018 • Family
Today we visited the pool at King Alfred, which allowed us to make use of our Freedom Leisure cards, which entitles Brighton and Hove children aged 5-16 to free public swimming sessions.
Thanks to this scheme I only paid £4.95, which given the length of time we were in the pool was excellent value. I will definitely be going again, especially on another wet day like today.
The only thing that could do with improving is the cleanliness of the changing rooms and toilets. Although they were tolerable, the toilets were a bit smelly and the bin for general waste was almost to the top and that too was smelly.

Saturday morning swim
May 2018 • Solo
This is a very popular venue and could be so much better. The 0815-0930 lane swimming was chaotic because the session for “adults” was short. Then it was shortened still more as a load of swimming classes took over an increased section of the pool. I was bombed by a young lad who was supposedly under instruction and had to reprimand him. I should not have needed to do so and hey, isn’t it adults only as per the timetable??!! The timetables need sorting out and the rubbish in the changing rooms needs clearing up. As does the hair in the drains.
This was my first visit and I left feeling unsure as though whether I wanted to return.
