Facility Reviews
Very warm - ideal for children. Also has an even warmer teaching pool.
Management must have turned the heat down. The pool is cold to get into and I get colder and colder until about fifteen minutes into my swim. Regulars I have spoken with say “It’s always freezing in here.”
It is not significantly colder than other public pools. I always feel chilly the first two lengths I swim wherever I go and then I warm up and forget all about it.
After reading the swimming timetable on the website, I decided to take my girls to swim - only to find that the timetable had changed. When we arrived, we were greeted with rudeness at the reception desk. Once in the teaching pool, my children were told to put the toys back that, up until then, other children had used. Would I return here, NO! [August, 2013]
I have visited this leisure centre with my son a few times.I have been turned away due to the swimming pools having been over booked by private swimming lesson classes. And I have had to wait for 30 minutes In order to fit in with their time table. The water Is so cold you have to keep moving In order to warm up and stay warm. [April, 2014]
