We have now been visiting this leisure centre on a weekly basis to swim. I can safely say this is the poorest leisure centre I have ever been to. The only reason we still use it, is purely because it is the most local.

The council and staff should be absolutely ashamed!! The changing facilities are disgusting; clumps of hair all over the floor, filthy floors, filthy showers and the toilets absolutely stink and look they haven't been cleaned for a week.

The swimming pool is absolutely freezing. It has been getting steadily colder week on week and I think they have just given up heating it altogether!

Absolutely appalling. The old lido that was pulled down was better than this new facility!

It has also taken 2 months to fix the ramp from the car park to the building and work is still not finished!

Visited for a spin class in their new room last Saturday morning... the instructor obviously hated her job and barely spoke let alone exhibited any enthusiasm or encouragement. Not worth paying for.

Ordered a sandwich in the cafe after badminton! Will be the first and last time. Bread a little stale and not much filling.

A great place to keep fit, friendly staff and helpful advice!! The recent re-furb has really made a good job of it and there's plenty of free parking.

we have used this centre multiple times and have always the modern building clean and the staff excellent.

no hesitation in recommending the facility.

would always advise checking swim session times before travel, as the pool is used for lessons & clubs etc.
