My daughter used to love these lesson, she had an amazing teacher Sharon - she learnt so much, she did her badges and got to level six It was worth every penny and more. Then Sharon stopped teaching, we got a new teacher in May and since then my daughter has not been taught anything, she has gone backwards on... More

Went with my grand daughter, the changing area and toilets were not pleasant at all, full price for pensioners its quite expensive for a swim.

Came down for a swim today with my 5 year old daughter and yet again the main slide was closed. This isn't the first time this has happened and it's a bit frustrating having paid full price to get in. I understand the odd one off but for it to be closed the last 4 times I've been is unacceptable.

I visited the centre today and asked the receptionist before I paid if both the slides were working. She told me they were. Once in the pool I noticed there were no children coming down the main slide. I asked a member of staff why and she shrugged her shoulders and replied 'not enough staff'. I wasn't satisfied with this... More

No spaces in the carpark, no on road parking, class booked £5:00 no show fee or £100:00 parking fine for parking 'illegally'? Win, win for Hillsborough Leisure Centre and the carpark company. So you want to get healthy? Jog or walk to the gym or pool and avoid unnecessary costs! Disgusting ways to rip of customers who pay hundreds of... More

Wrote a review a while ago about this leisure centre pointing out that its cafe wasn't the best however have not visited for a while and decided to go. Have to say the pool cafe has had an overhaul and now offers healthier choices from handmade smoothies containing really fruit to jacket potatoes and salad prices were very reasonable smoothies...

We have been swimming several times with our grandchildren, but are reluctant to go again because of the filth in the changing rooms. I must emphasise that is not the fault of the staff, who seem hardly able to keep up, probably because of council cuts and staffing shortages. They were also in despair at the filthy behaviour of many... More

Visited this venue recently and having read previous feedback from customers it would appear little or nothing has been done by way of improvements. There are two water slides one of which doesn't "slide" at all, you have to push yourself down, and the other slide was out of use. The changing area was quite dirty on the floor round... More

Such a great swimming pool for children. The main pool has a wedge design so that even the youngest children can walk up to where they feel comfortable. There is a pirate ship in the pool with a slide. There is a baby section with fountains and a mini slide and there's also a huge family slide for all ages.... More
