Facility Reviews
Useful and busy, but deficient for the size of population it is meant to serve. Always busy and all facilities rarely available at the same time due to maintenance problems, lessons, section closures, and inadequate showering facilities. Overall:Over-used and under-funded, otherwise bearable. My rating 3.5 out of 5.
There are hardly any times when an adult full-time worker, not a club standard but not a crawler, can stretch a limb. Too many clubs and lessons.
Went for a workout on a Monday about 8:15 a.m. and had a delightful time. The water quality was excellent, good temperature (albeit a bit warm as is typical for indoor), nice changing rooms (a £1.00 coin is needed for a locker, but is returned). Good lane lines, but the lanes are a bit narrow. Circle/speed signs present and people were obeying such. Companion kiddy play area looks nice, if you have little ones. [May, 2014]
