If you have a question to be answered, just answer it yourself. If you ask a lifeguard a question he was very and extremely good at his job and very helpful. I say this because I ask him a question and he just shrugged his shoulders! The receptionists are slow and moody. The swimming pools are quite dirty. The toilets... More

We found this pool to be warm and clean. Waves were fun, rapids too and my eldest (age 8) enjoyed the flumes. Changing area was clean and nice big family changing rooms. Good value for money and the kids loved it. Would definitely go back if in the area.

My family and I are frequent users of the Leisure Centre, namely the climbing wall and gym facilities. The facilities themselves are good and excellent value for money.

Pool is dated and showing signs of age and wear, there was visible rust on the pipe work in the toddler pool. The water temperature was too low to keep parents acompayaning a youngster warm. Other areas of the pool were dirty. Outside area was closed. Pool was very busy and overcrowded in areas. The changing village was great, very... More

Not impressed at all. Couldn't take too kids 7 and 5 year old in due to age even though Dundee and Perth allow you to. Attitude from the reception desk towards me stinks, also staff manning the flumes thought they were better than a responsibile parent. A letter to manager is called for about this place. 😟

We went on a thundery day, unfortunately when there is a lightning strike in the area the leisure pool is closed for a minimum of 30 minutes and in our case 70 minutes.

Good to hear you generally enjoyed your visit Gillso! Thankfully lightening is a rare occurrence and we are sorry that the precautionary closure impacted on your visit. 65 minutes is the minimum session time offered so we are not sure why the band call you noticed appeared to be less - it may have been for a large group which...

Visited twice whilst on holiday in Inverness area. Great facility and friendly staff. Time limit of 1hr 10m during peak times seems a little tight but kids thoroughly enjoyed the flume rides, Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend this place if the Scottish weather lets you down. This is amongst the best leisure pools I have been to- lazy river, outdoor pool, flumes and wave machine so lots of fun for the kids (and grown ups).
