A Valuable Asset
May 2021
I often use the pool, although it’s getting harder to book as demand increases. Facilities are well worn, but still ok. I have full confidence in the lifeguards who watch over the pool. Most staff are helpful including cleaners who are constantly on the go.
Authorities really should allocate some of the four hundred billion pound pandemic budget to improve health through exercise by spending on sports facilities. Guess there’s no Big Pharma kickback for authorities if we are all healthy.

Disgusting!
Aug 2019 • Family
The building looks old and outdated from the outside and i hoped this was not a continuing theme on the inside...i was wrong.

My partner and i came to use the swimming pool with our 5 month old baby. Both changing rooms were way below standard. Both showers infested with flies. No hooks on the door to hang towels etc. Mould in the corner. Damaged tiling.

Now the pool...The theme continued. The pool needs serious TLC. The area is not the cleanest. The learning pool was not warm enough, my son was shivering. We stayed for all of 15 minutes and left.

Will definitely not be returning

Not happy. Will now go to another pool
May 2019 • Family
I live round the corner. My son who is 11 and myself have been going every Friday after school. Today was our 4th time. Every week a lifeguard asks him to do a length of the pool which he does. This week he did a length and 30 seconds treading water. We were in the deep end and he was swimming and even going to the bottom of the pool.
Another lifeguard starts his shift and decides my son cannot be in the deep end. He doesnt believe me when I tell him my son can swim and pass the test and that it is our 4th week there.
He made my son cry and we ended up getting out of the pool. So one lifeguard said it was ok and another one didnt.
I will not go back there and will now drive to another pool.

Good leisure center

They instruct the courses well through explanations and demonstrations. Everyone who complains needs to know how hard it is to work in a pool with lots people coming in and out each hour

Swimming Lessons
Oct 2017 • Family
Agree with the other comments on the very pool standards of swimming lessons. My son joined a junior life saving course on a Saturday afternoon established by the Royal Life Saving Society. The course was meant to follow their syllabus. After 1 year the Pools instructor had still not assessed my son, and he was simply doing the same things over and over again while the instructor showed off to the female life guards. When I asked the instructor he said he does not follow the course, he does it his way!!! I complained to the centre, the next session he carried out an assessment and awarded their bronze certificate. After which, he promptly went straight back to his old ways. I hasten to add there is nothing wrong with the Royal Life Saving Society’s course. As their was no change I enrolled my son at another centre and he went on to thoroughly enjoy himself completing the course in a proper structured way. My advice is to stay well clear of lessons at this pool until they understand what it means to be professional.

AVOID IT. THIS LEISURE CENTER IS BEYOND THE JOKE
Apr 2018 • Solo
Very disappointed with the facilities and services provided. Spa is beyond any hygiene standards, very dirty, molds everywhere, and the place is extremely loud. If you think of going there to relax and gain a pleasant experience, I will suggest to reconsider this option. Gym is ok, just avoid busy time. Swimming pool... no difference between stepping into icy water or this pool, Staff members are unprofessional, always tired of life, not bothered and angry if you have any questions.

Unclean and Dated Steam Room and Spa
May 2017 • Solo
The steam room and so called spa at the Fullwell Cross Leisure Centre in Barkingside, Essex should be avoided. The place needs a very deep clean as there is mould and grime all over the place. The men's changing room really leaves a lot to be desired. How they manage to satisfy the health and safety regulations is beyond me. The floors are almost always dirty and the showers are absolutely pathetic. They are luke warm and the water pressure has the strength of an asthmatic hamster. The staff do very little to control the sometime rowdy idiots who attend. A spa and steam room should be sanctuaries of calm - this place is anything but. I would not recommend this place at all. Don't waste your money.

Awful is not strong enough a word for the swimming lessons here. One star not even deserved
Jan 2018 • Family
If you want your child to be put off swimming for the rest of their life this is the place to go. Teacher very unfriendly, pushes the child with his trainers if they are slow getting in. Can't be bothered to encourage them in any way or fashion. I just wish I had listened to the reviews before enrolling. On top of that several times the teacher didn't turn up then a replacement was found to start the lesson always 5/10 mins late which is quite a lot when the whole lesson is 25 mins. The replacement teacher never knew what they had been doing. Last lesson left the child sobbing all the way home in the car saying they don't want to ever go swimming again. They won't have to here that is for sure. When we tried to complain we were told sorry no one is available till Monday.

Massage Treatment at Fullwell Spa is very poor
Apr 2017 • Solo
I had a massage this afternoon. The girl was inexperienced, the room was cold and she put the fan on. There are no massage table, just a bed. Her strokes were not coordinated. Her nails dug into my skin and it's hurting. She shouldn't grew her nails if she is doing massage for people. As a whole, it was not worth £40. There is no toilets in the reception area, I had to go to the wet changing room to go to the toilet and there was only one toilet there.
