I thought this place was really really good! £4 for a children's day pass and £5 for an adults day pass, this meant you had access to 2 pools, an outdoor pool and an indoor pool, which had a jacuzzi for up to 10 people, a small (but fast) slide, a steam room and a sauna. I was quite disappointed steam room and sauna was for adults, which my children were quite disappointed about, but we still had a fab time.
However, the staff were really really horrible, impolite and extremely unenthusiastic. The young girl at the desk was that unenthusiastic, you couldn't even hear what she was saying! When my children entered the indoor pool, here's what the staff said to them:
"How did you get in here without a towel and without shoes? Please go through that door instead to enter the pool."
I thought this was totally unacceptable, as there was no signs stating you needed a towel, or shoes and the woman at the desk didn't say anything so......
When the children went through the door they were told to go through, another lifeguard approached them and said very impolitely:
"GIRLS, where are you're towels? Go back and get them immediately!"
So as they were making their way back to the outdoor pool where I was sitting, the lifeguard that spoke to them first said something to them:
"Someone's going to go flying on this floor because you haven't brought your towels! Now I have to clean this up!"
It's her job! If they're going to be SO bothered about wiping up few footprints, make a sign saying about the towels!
I would recommend this place, it is really good value! Just don't get on the wrong side of the staff! And before entering the indoor pool, make sure you have a towel, shoes and you are fully dressed!!!!
