Great but no need for such short sessions
Nov 2021 • Family
I can’t fault the pool and slides. They are excellent.

My issue was 50 minute sessions. 50 minutes is extremely tight and although we had fun, both my kids left crying because they were no ready to leave yet.

Pleasantly surprised
Feb 2020 • Family
Was unsure if to visit after reading a lot of bad reviews before hand, but we were pleasantly surprised. Staff at desk were friendly and helpful, learner pool is great size, and warm, and not too busy considering it was school holidays. Our children 5yrs and 3yrs both enjoyed the water slides (3yrs can go on with adult) and had a great time.

Parking
Feb 2020 • Solo
My husband went to join tonight only to find he couldn't park. This is the fourth time he hasn't been able to get a parking space. Car park definitely hasn't been thought through and will only make people walk away from joining goodbye.

Parking
Jan 2020 • Family
Just been spoke to by one of the “staff” like a piece of poo. Parking atrocious so went to park around the back. A white golf followed me around, I found a space only to be told I had to move as this was a staff car park! There are no signs stating this. Then when I refused he started shouting saying well where are the staff supposed to park! Not my problem fella....

Badminton session

Been coming here to play every week for a while now. Court is always set up on arrival and such great value for money. Other places we've played at are so over priced.

Too cold to use small pool
Nov 2019 • Family
Brought my 3 month old son for his first time swimming. Unfortunately the small pool was so cold we couldn’t use it and had to instead use the main pool. Other families with small children all had to do the same. Has put me off using this place again.

Swimming lessons
Aug 2019
The worst centre for parking and sitting to watch the pool ever!
Disgusted with the standard of teaching and the cleanliness of the pool and seating area. I watched a small child on the end of a group of children learning to swim, this child kept on going under and no one seemed to care or help the child. I was worried that the child could have gone under and stayed down, and despite tapping on the window and alerting the lifeguard they let the child still go under.It was like watching a rugby scrum. I am a level 3 coach and I was disgusted withthe staff and the management. Do not use this centre, ever!!!!!

It's actually a really boring centre
Aug 2019
Unfortunately for us this is our local swim centre so for convience I suppose we sometimes use it.On past experiences the small pool isn't that warm and the large pool is very cold.I hate the way the changing rooms are with men and women children and teens sharing.Its uncomfortable.My big issue here is that of all the days they close early on a weekend.Its hard to get in after school because most days the pools are closed for swimming lessons or other activities.This leaves you with school holidays to hopefully be able to use the place but now they run a day care in the holidays the pool is once again closed off to the public.I have never known anything like it.Its so disappointing.The cafe is expensive.The 3G pitches are a ridiculous amount to hire per hour no wonder they are never used.Worst of all this centre has a depressing miserable vibe to it.The staff in the pool are quite horrid never smile and front reception should be a welcoming area.Of all the times I've been to this centre I have never seen the staff communicate with eachother or smile never mind a conversation.Its suppose to be a fun place and alough me and my boys do enjoy our time there this is because we make it fun for us it has nothing to do with the centre.They don't bring inflatables out or anything it really is such a boring centre.
