“mouldy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

we went to the aquatec when it first opened years ago and it was a fab pool then and they also had an ice rink my children were only wee then and really enjoyed going to it as they grew up they stopped going and i took my 4yr old granddaughter recently and was very dissappointed as the pool has really gone down hill !!!! at the sides you could see a lot of mould in many areas so they are obviously not keen on doing a deep clean!! the chute was closed also so my granddaughter was very upset so all in all a waste of money and will not be going here again !! also the ice rink is no longer there as its now a gym !! would not recomend this pool to anyone go to the time capsule in coatbridge instead as this is a lovely clean pool

“Swimming in a sewage outfall”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

my wife and I took our two daughters to the Aquatec in Motherwell this morning, it has not been cleaned in, I would estimate 18 years, there is mould and dirt everywhere. This must be the filthiest attraction in Strathclyde, the Hamilton Water Palace and the Time Capsule in Coatbridge certainly do not have anything to fear from the Aquatec.

“Tired Centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The facilities really do need an upgrade, the pool is dated and some of the water features don't appear to be in use. Car Park constantly full and I wonder if that is people using the car park who are not using the centre.

Brilliant back in the day but pool is in need of a refurb. The gym has recently been refurbed and is looking good.

“Awful and grubby”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

We took the wee man to the Aquatec swimming towards the end.of the school holidays as we hadn't been there in years and OMG it hasn't changed in years. The changing facilities for the pool were filthy when we went in, the pool itself needs an overhaul, the tiles are falling off and look awful and the showers were terrible too. I felt dirtier coming out of them. It's safe to say we will not be returning here unless we hear they have been done up.
