Facility Reviews
An old building, but charming. Separate sex changing facilities joined by a central mixed changing area is quite nice. Showers in the men’s are good if you find one that works! The pool is not deck level, but the deck isn’t elevated too high from the water. The edges of the pool, however, are grates where it could be easy to lose things. The water was quite warm, too hot for an intense swim. A spine of heating vents above the centre of the pool length-wise can cause one to shift across a lane.
