Thieves and crooks

Took our £40 for the month then vanished and went bankrupt literally the next day. Multiple people scammed. Apparently this lady has set up business again under a different name. Avoid!

Never again!
Nov 2017 • Family
Would never take my child here again, this was last year. My child had never been in water properly before taking her for lessons here. I informed the instructor there my child was very anxious, by the 3rd lesson my child was made to swim under the water by being pushed under the instructors legs by her head! She was screaming and crying, I was told not to react! They do not let them have any swimming aids so she literally thought she was drowning, I feel disgusted that I let her go back but the only reason was a different instructor took over her lessons for a while, but eventually he left and then so did we! I do not like the way they treat or speak to children here, I now take my child elsewhere and it has been a long journey to get her to where she is, the instructor here saw she was absolutely petrified and I told them how they teach and he replied "thats disgusting" with care, learning to trust and constant praise my child is nearly on her number 3 badge. Please, please do not take your child here! I have other mum friends approximately 5 that have said exactly the same!

Lovely swimming pool, but after coming here for over a year to swim babes whitch costs £107 per month we have now got to pay £1 per week for parking,for this we can have a drink but not everyone wants a drink, it makes the lessons a lot more expensive per month, might have to look elsewhere

Really patient staff and good school
Jan 2018 • Family
My 3 year old daughter screamed and screamed about getting in the pool. Staff are patient and good with children. She has come along so much in 6 weeks. We took her swimming and she was straight in no aids and swam.

Fantastic time
Aug 2017 • Family
We booked a private hire out on the pool for an hour! 6 of us including one 6year old child and one 5month old baby! Was absolutely fantastic for getting the kids used to the water! Lovely and warm just like getting in a big bath! Fun was had by all. Would highly reccomend to others, the gentleman staff member that was their was so friendly and helpful too! Will deffinitely be returning! Thinking of booking it again already.

By far the best!!
Jul 2017 • Family
Visited this pool today with my 2 children. My 5 year old was petrified of getting in, and got upset which resulted in her wanting to go home.
Steve the GM and swimming instructor saw what was happening and within seconds she was in the pool. He was very patient, kind, fun and professional, he had her swimming and going under the water! A massive achievement for her. The pool was very warm and well equipt for my 8 month old who also enjoyed the experience. We have booked in to return for some lessons and I would recommend this place to anyone.

Swim babes and fun swims
Jun 2017 • Family
We started going to dinnington school of swimmers since swim babies moved to their pool. The pool is wonderful. Nice, warm and clean. Babs, the owner/manager is really passionate about her vision for the pool and always looking to upgrade and get funding for new features. I've never been in an indoor pool as warm that she open to the public.

Our son loves swimming that much that we have started going for family swims with my wife (his mum) as she's at work when he goes for lessons) and they have lots of fun play equipment, rubber rings, floats, balls, floating mats. Also has a handy changing facility for young child's/ babies at the side to help with dressing and keeping warm. Bargain price now, can't remember the exact money but it costs far less for the three of us to go swimming than it does our sons swimming class. Son loves it as he can have a more 'free' play and jump off floats etc.

Spoken with Babs on numerous occasions and always friendly and polite. She's very customer focused and loves to chat with our (now) 2 year old giving him stickers and the occasional treat. We are planning on transitioning him from swim babes to the school of swimmers when the time is right. Sorry, not sure of the guy on receptions name but Sebs always pinching his busicuts. Again, friendly, welcoming and always says hello and chats.

Cafe reasonably priced, makes a good coffee too.

Poorly Managed! and a death trap waiting to happen.
Feb 2017 • Family
This is a genuine review, the pool is lovely and warm, but it appears that the management doesnt seem to have a clue on how to run a swimming pool.

They are numerous dangerous areas that I noticed around the pool.

The prices seem to go up and down depending on if you take a kid with you or not, Yeah the price actually goes down if you take a kid with you, otherwise its £5.

It is almost impossible to find, being on an industrial estate of all places.

I personally dont think it will be long until someone has a serious accident there and the place is shut down.

It could be a fantastic pool, but due to the management appearing to make it up as they go along it suffers!.
