Its such a shame this pool is so cold - we had to leave after 40mins as our 2yr old was shivering with blue lips! It was a shame, as it is a fab pool- a beach type style so gradually gets deeper, wave machine every 30mins, a flume (not open when we were there though - grr), and a little slide for the young kids. We all had a lovely time, the changing facilities were very dated but perfectly adequate. It was reasonably priced, I think £8/9 for the 3 of us to swim. I believe it was free for Under3's which is great.

Please make this warmer so we can come back and enjoy it for longer with children.

My family were down for the Bank Holiday and on the Sunday went to swim, they had a marvellous time.
On the Wednesday they called to say they had left some of the little ones things at the centre.
I called the centre and a very helpful young man checked and said they had them.
When I went to collect them on the Thursday all the staff were really helpful.
Nice to know that some places are still very well organised and actually want to to help.
Thank you.

This pool is fab but the changing rooms are very dated. The showers whilst hit have obviously been made for midgets! Half the lockers/keys are broken and not enough room to turn around in the tiny cubicles! Lastly I hate being hugged by a shower curtain whilst you are trying to get changed. Such a shame as like I say we had immense fun in the pool...

What a lovely pool ! We were absolutely amazed by the cleanliness of this swimming pool. I'm used to grubby changing rooms that you really hate putting your bare feet onto. This was lovely! The pool was great to - it has a wave machine, slides & things for the younger children to use to. Really really liked it.

When you run a conference you need to be able to trust the people who run the venue - from the day we went for our first visit the Riviera delivered superbly on everything we asked for. Food was oustanding and they're such NICE people to work with. Would happily endorse them and proactively recommend.
