“Not good...”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Stood waiting to be served as was ignored by staff.
Dirty tables and rubbish and leftovers on tables not cleaned away.
Hopeless staff, too busy chatting with each other than doing some work. Bad first impression sadly.

“Excellent refurb - but prepare for a long wait at reception!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The massive refurb of the old Bridgend Recreation Centre has been well worth it. What a transformation from the shabby dilapidated wreck of the old building! The downsides: You still get slow service on Reception if you'r paying cash and don't have a bridge card, and sometimes the queue stretches as far as the door! Staff don't seem to be pro-active enough in trying to get the queue down fast - they just take their sweet old time. Prices for an hour long aerobics class have rocketed to nearly £5!!!!! It would be justifiable for an hour and a half maybe...but an hour..?! Oh and if you phone to make an enquiry they usually take FOREVER to answer the phone - if they bother that is.

“It's OK, but...”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

An expensive looking upgrade for the front end, but maybe some money could have been spent on the inside as well? The leisure pool and changing rooms are looking decidedly tired. And empty the bins as well...
