“Good play for kids. Avoid the service at food counter though ”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

The facilities for children are good. Lots for them to do with a good safe environment. This was however overshadowed by the appalling 'service' for the girls on the food counter who gave you the look that says "you really actually want something?! Can't you see I am in the middle of talking?" (assume dumb blonde voice for last quote). The girl who served us was miserable to the point that a corpse would have had more expression and willingness to do its job. Her tone was unfriendly and rude and I caught her sat on the serving counter when we walked in. Add to this the painted nails and even a set of fake nails among the girls and health and hygiene would have a field day. Seeing as they seem to care more about nails and gossiping I would hate to see the state of the kitchen area behind the counter.

“Play area good. Service terrible”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

I'll start with the positive. Play area was good for my 4 year old. Hes always enjoyed coming here. They have rules but no one seems to enforce them which sometimes is a problem if a childs parents doesn't make their children aware. Always clean. The food is slow but always good but is always let down by the girls serving you. They are miserable and rude. Im sure also health and hygiene would have a field day with their painted nails not to mention the ones with fake nails which could easily drop off in your meal. I asked if the upstairs was open as it was really busy, you'd think I'd asked her to chop off her false nails the way she looked at me then she replied I don't know. Its such a shame sort them out and you've got a great place. I'd happily review again if this is improved.

“fantastic place for the little people!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

fantastic indoor play area for children. i go there weekly at my daughters request and she still isnt tired of it!
Adults are allowed to accompany their children on the equipment which is great however be warned - you will need a red bull after about 15 mins!!!
prices are good - about £5.50 per child - adults are free....

The only thing i would say about the Fun Factory is that it can be quite dirty.
There is quite a lot of dust in the 'out of bounds' areas and i keep finding hairs stuck in the cargo netting!
Having said that - the main areas are usually clean and staff are very attentive to spills etc.
On the subject of the staff - all excelent!
I have never eaten there but i have seen the food being prepared and it looks good - typicle burger and chips kind of place but everyone who eats it seems to enjoy it!
worth a trip on a wet and cold sunday afternoon when your little one is 'bored'!

“The kids love it”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Granby Fun Factory is a soft play area for children. Unlike most soft play areas to which I've hitherto fallen victim, the Granby Fun Factory is spacious, excellent value for money and the children are generally well tempered and well behaved.

If your children are bullying you into entertaining them on a wet and miserable day in Weymouth, you need not fear the Granby Fun Factory. You might even feel the urge to take off your shoes and clamber on in there with them.
