Cafe closed at lunchtime due to staff lunchbreak. Apart from that, all round very good experience. Free parking, reasonable price for family ticket. Kids stayed in a long time.

This place is a rip off! Over double the price it costs us to get into our local swimming pool. Really not worth it for what it is. It's quite filthy inside. Not always open but they don't update the website to reflect this so...More

I swim here three times a week and disagree with the negative comments. It isn't dirty, they don't randomly close and the changing rooms aren't freezing. It is a bit jaded but it's not a new building. The staff are pleasant.

They randomly close the swimming pool at this place so make sure you phone before you go. Its happened to us 4 times in the last 10 times we've been. Also the pool changing rooms are absolutely freezing cold. Unnecessary. How much does it cost...More

Went here with my young one to try a new pool. The pool has not changed in 20 years since I used it as a child. Blast from the past. Which is not a good thing. Everything is dirty and mouldy. Needs a full overhaul....More
