“Very Good Centre”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I have been to the visitor centre many a time and found the food good and cheap. But recently some of the staff that serve you have come increasingly rude you ask them in a pleasant and polite manner which I was brought up to do.What do you get back is them demanding the money of you with out a please or thank you. Is it me or have people lost the virtue of politeness but overall it is still worth a visit to the centre a walk around the lake what ever the weather.

“Great afteroon out”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Its a nice stop for seeing the wildlife. A mini beach area. Nice walks around the lakes that are suitable for the disabled. There is a cafe with informaton about the history of the area. Its a great place to see the sunset over the lake.

“Nice little spot to have a hot chocolate”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We enjoy visiting Westport Lake to see the birds, and the centre is nice, particularly on a cold day where you can warm up with a hot drink. I have never been in there during summer, but the balcony looks nice to go out on as you can look across the lake. The staff are always pleasant.

“Good for a wheelchair walk/scooters/bike ride”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Had a pleasant afternoon with my mum in her wheelchair and 3 boys on scooters. Was easily able to push wheelchair round level paths by lakeside. We enjoyed delicious cakes and coffee in the cafe, not cheap but BIG slices. Could have more interesting things to buy. Also had sold out of duck food which was a shame. The boys had a great play in the playground, scaring grandma with their antics! We have also cycled round the lake and extended our ride along the canal to enjoy some industrial history and architecture. It was very busy (half term) and only 3 disabled parking bays.

“Not really much there”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Really disappointed with the center, when it was being built i had high hopes for it but since visiting i was let down, there was nothing really inside and the coffee shop is over priced.
