Facility Reviews
It's not a 'smart' pool, but it is always clean and friendly.
A wonderful old building, convenient and central - but the pool and facilities are pretty old.
The showers are old and excellent - push-button operated, they stay on for a decent length of time, they're hot and have good pressure. I really, really liked it. It ain't broke and I hope they don't mend it.
It's been gently refurbished - smartened up a bit but kept all the charm. [December, 2012]
Whenever I ask why the water looks filthy, I am told it's because the filter is not working. The ladies shower area has holes in the ceiling (which is also filthy) and is freezing in winter. Chipped paint falls from the ceiling and the sides of the pool into the water. The whole place needs a complete overhaul. It is badly run and badly maintained and does not meet EU basic standard. [February, 2013]
A friendly place, and the water is warm, but a lack of lane discipline makes it an uncomfortable place to swim. The facilities are really tatty: paint peeling off the sides of the pool, stained ceilings - you have to wonder how clean it is. [March, 2013]
The pool is simply not very clean. The algae and mould growing on the bottom is a problem. Considering the wealth concentrated in SW3, we should be able to do better. Raise the entrance fees, allocate taxes, host a fundraiser. It needs fixing. [July, 2013]
