Have prices and timing of availiability of facilities easily accessible on line and/or make more staff availiable to answer these queries in person.

Overpriced and below par facilities
Jul 2019 • Solo
I have a membership here and frequently attend the gym and classes. I don’t use the swimming pool because the changing facilities are dirty. It seems that nothing here ever really gets updated or refurbished despite the expensive membership cost. There’s a class I regularly attend where the music always breaks because there’s something wrong with the aux connection or speakers, every week the centre claims it has been fixed and every week it doesn’t work. The range of classes is poor for the membership price, the only thing I like about the classes is that the instructors are great. In the gym, the hand towel dispensers are constantly empty and so is the hand soap in the toilets. I don’t think that there is a great range of machines in the gym and some of them break repeatedly and obviously need replacing.

I think that for the price of the membership I would expect more facilities, more classes, for broken things to be properly fixed or replaced, for more refurbishments to be made and at the very least for everything to be cleaner and hand towels refilled. I often see members of staff cleaning machines in the gym but ignoring that all the dispensers are empty.

The thing that really pushed me into writing a negative review is that this week the centre has been constantly been smelling overwhelmingly like people’s private parts! Absolutely disgusting. The only reason I keep going is because of the convenient location.

Shocking
Apr 2019 • Couples
Went for a swim which was fine in itself but otherwise shocking facilities. Dirty changing rooms with lockers that don't work. A sign in the ladies changing room warning male employees may be in attendance which is fair enough but not when the cubicle curtains don't close properly. Cafe service apalling. The ladies at the till did their best to cover but there seemed to be a constant queue. Adding insult to injury, money seems to have been spent on cosmetics ie tarting up the reception area. Why bother when you can't get the basics right?

In real need of some TLC
Mar 2019 • Family
I have been going to the arun for years and cannot fault their swimming lessons. They are such a reasonable price and both of my children have loved them. My main issue is with the general care of the place. It just seems that so much money has been spent on a glitzy reception and cafe whilst the poolside and changing rooms are frankly disgusting. The reception staff also barely acknowledge you and are often quite rude which is very off putting. I've been a regular visitor for nearly 9 years and in that time the same family cubicles/baby changing facilities are broken and it seems have never been repaired. Half the showers never work in the ladies and if they do the water is always freezing. The toilets are also so dirty that my son nearly had an accident on the way home from his lesson as that was preferable to him using the facilities available. Come on Arun. The fundamentals are there, the lessons are amazing. Money just desperately needs to be spent on cleanliness and basic repairs.

No parking
Sep 2018 • Couples
Had a court booked arrived 15 minutes early, but no parking, lots of other people like us driving round and round looking for a space - but none, lots of yellow lines, tried to find a space outside but this site is isolated and there are no local residential roads to park in. We asked at reception and they told us there was an event on and there were no other spaces, so unfortunately after 30 minutes of trying we had to give up and go home.

Brilliant classes
Apr 2018 • Friends
This is a great leisure centre with so many different classes to book. Reasonable monthly membership and brilliant instructors.
My only criticism is that there isn’t an online cancellation system so if you can’t make it, you have to call.

Not allowed to have fun!
Mar 2018 • Family
Working in a Nursery I know all about health and safety but I've never known anything like it.. came with my partner and two young children and the lifeguards were literally not letting them do anything! My partner picked one of them up before getting whistled at and pointed at and this continued the entire time we were there.. it was also very over priced and the staff all very grumpy.. really wouldn't recommend if you are expecting to have a fun time out with your family.. such a shame

Swimming
Feb 2018 • Family
We came swimming and love the new look as you walk through reception. We took 2 10 year olds with is and a 19 month. Lifeguards we very helpful and friendly. The small pool is ideal for our youngest. But we got out to go and sit in the cafe for a bit with our youngest whilst the older ones carried on swimming. 3 tables were occupied. Every single other table that was empty was filthy! I cleaned ours down and we stayed there for about 45 mins in which time not once did anyone come and clean the tables. At one point 3 members of staff were slouched over the counter talking to each other. Lovely new area and ruined by laziness! It's a shame.

An excellent centre for fitness and fun
Nov 2017 • Couples
They have pretty much every sport you could want to do going on here. We regularly go swimming and spinning. The staff are helpful and friendly and the teachers in the spin classes are all excellent and fun and motivational.
