Came here as we knew it would be suitable for our 3 months old granddaughter, changing facilities are always a bit tight and during peak times you will have to wait to find family changing rooms. Found the changing area quite clean although could do with a rinse down during the day. I had read a review on here saying... More

Grandchildren love the shallow end as they are just learning to swim. Fountain is good fun as is the current that sweeps you along one section of the pool. The wave machine kicks in with plenty of warning so everyone had lots of fun.

If you want to swim lengths then this is not the pool for you. It is for messing about with your friends; ideal for kids. There is a slide, which has varying heights, I burnt my thigh going down it, but the kids were okay. I found very few people using the showers before getting into the pool and the... More

Took my children for a half term treat. It was a real disappointment: café closed, both flumes closed, wave machine more like a brief, occasional ripple and no ceiling lights on - just side lights. The manager explained they had to cut costs because of low demand! I suggested to the manager that the reduced service (which amounted to a... More

Took the kids here yesterday and they loved it. The pool was run on a coloured band system giving you about a 90 minute swim session. The slides and waves are good fun but the out side lazy river was closed but this didn't matter as it was freezing outside so wouldn't want the kids using it anyway. The kids... More

We went to Oasis for an afternoon activity as a friend recommended it. I must say I was a little disappointed to say the least. The slides were closed as was the outdoor area. The wave machine was switched on few times and this only lasted about two minutes at a time. There is just one thing I will really... More

Where do I start. Very small "family changing rooms" Staff: normally pleasant and friendly, but I had one occasion when I got called back rather rudely to be told that the teacher taking the lesson was ill. Time keeping: Appalling. You pay for lessons that are supposed to start at 8am Saturday (for my kid) only to find the place... More
