Dreadful facility - stay away.
Oct 2021
Terrible dump. The timetable is a work of fiction - adult lane swims are constantly interrupted by kids' lessons. The staff are incompetent, unhelpful and rude. There are no proper shower facilities, which makes me wonder about the water quality in the pool. Changing booths are frequently left uncleaned. Run a mile from this dreadful pool.

Pool water was very cold, inflatable fun was good but over priced for 1 hr . Staff on reception well friendly but didn't explain the different price as our girls were swimming the hour before the inflatable. I think this should be stated. Life guards were very observant.

Great place
Jul 2018 • Couples
One of the great things about this is the new gym and the fact that there are never, so far, queues for any equipment. It is a great shame that it no longer has a health suite as I am sure this would a great draw to gain membership.

No disco in Disco swim
Jul 2018 • Family
The swan centre pool is lovely and the staff are very friendly. It is important that you check the website before you leave as the pool is used for many different things during the day, including private lessons, public swimming and a disco swim. It was the 'disco swim' that we chose to go to, however whilst we enjoyed the pool, the flume, the floats and the wave machine, there was no 'disco' element present. We were expecting lights and music at the very least, however there wasn't anything special- perhaps the speakers were broken? We still thoroughly enjoyed our swim here though as the facilities are excellent.

Clean facilities & friendly staff
May 2018 • Family
Visited here whilst on half term holiday in Berwick upon Tweed. The facilities where spotless and the staff very friendly. We visited during the "Inflatables and Flumes" session. There were no Inflatables but there were plenty of floats, giant rubber rings, and balls to play with. The wave pool came on every 30 mins or so followed by the water slide being opened.
If you're stuck on a rainy day, definitely worth a visit with the family.

It's half term. Website said inflatables flume and wave pool would be in operation. Called to make sure as we've been disappointed here before. Active Northumberland switchboard confirmed floats and flume. Got there. Neither. A few balls in the pool and some floats which had seen better days. Slide closed. And after an hour in the pool no waves. Not once. The slide opened briefly and my eight year old son was told he was too small. I say told. The woman just gestured he couldn't go on. We sized him at the chart on the wall ( at the bottom of the flume stairs which the attendant hadn't bothered to do ) and he was precisely the required 1.2 m. I said I'd speak to her next go.....but the closed sign was already up and it never reopened. Pathetic state of affairs in the half term break. And not the first time this has happened. Staff are surly and often downright rude. Facilities have seen better days and there was a group of teenage boys ruining everyone else's enjoyment with no parental supervision in sight and a wholly ineffective lifeguard blowing his whistle but actually doing nothing to resolve the situation. We'll be going to Dunbar next time despite the drive. Judging by other reviews this leisure centre couldn't give a toss what people think as clearly have chosen not to act on feedback. Avoid.

Disappointing
Aug 2017 • Family
After arriving with my two grandchildren 5 and 3 years, my older grandchild and myself were stopped from going up to the slide as she was just short of 1.2 Mt height. Bearing in mind that six months ago on the last visit it was not a problem, you can imagine the big disappointment it was for her.As she is a very good swimmer the big pool is no problem for her, she then took great pride in showing me how her swimming instructor had taught her to dive from the side of the pool. After a short period she attempted to show me again and was stoped as the next lifeguard said no diving. After waiting for the waves to start we were told the wave machine was broken.On exiting the centre I contacted a member of staff to enquire why we had not been told about any of the above, she told me it was on the notice board ( nothing on any board) well done Berwick a great advert for anyone on holiday in Berwick.

Wouldn't recommend freezing
Jul 2017 • Family
After phoning up to see if it was open to swimming this afternoon , and was told it was open for swimming till 6, I arrived at the pool and was told wasn't aloud in pool till 4 o'clock for a swim .. I traveled just over an hour to get to Berwick.. and then had to wait a hour in the freezing cold to get in, very disappointed specially when have young children.. I couldn't even get a hot drink from cafe as this was closed . When 4 o'clock came and we got in pool safe to say wasn't staying in for long as pool water was freezing!! After 45 minutes my one years olds hands looked blues!! This must be against health and safety it was so cold!! Certainly won't be back!! And certainly wouldn't recommend
