Atlantis has a good 25-metre pool which sometimes has lanes for adult and teen swimmers. However, it is often closed to the public including its own members while groups take over the facilities.

In my opinion, As a publicly-funded facility, it should offer extensive availability to the public and not just schools, Scouts or kayak clubs.

Best to check availability with staff before packing your goggles to avoid disappointment.

We visited to swim one day whilst on holiday because it was raining.
Outside play area looked great but it was too wet for us to try it.

It was more expensive than home but we didn't mind. Changed in the changing rooms. They were ok, a little tired looking.

The small pool was quite chilly but they did warn us. There were lots of toys for everyone to play with which was nice. We stayed for over an hour.

The pool had what looked like like scale on the tiles at the edge but I think it was probably grout and the water had reacted. At the bottom in the corner the bottom of the pool was thick black, possibly mould! When we noticed this we had already been there a long while so we left.

We would have had a try in the soft play but our little girl was tired.

It has the potential to be a nice place and they are trying to raise money so I wouldn't write off visiting again if we were in the area.

When we visited (July 2), the outdoor area for big kids was closed due to "health and safety" according to the front desk. It looks really fun so the kids were disappointed. So, we went in for the soft play area inside. The kids enjoyed it, but for £4.10 each for an hour it is not a great value. We have not tried the pool, which sounds good based on other reviews.

Visited here whilst I was in Oban on a weeks holiday. Hotel wasn't far from leisure centre so decided to take a stroll, it's very easy to find. The ladies on reception where helpful and chatty. (The lifeguard wasn't so friendly but who cares) pool was quiet. I had a swim and used the sauna - all for under a fiver. Can't crumble. The place appeared clean. Didn't use the cafe

I found the kids loved the new play parks even although the local council have not sorted the broken zip wire which they should have done before now..
food in the cafe is below standard with nothing much edible.. soft play is ok but with older kids running around in the toddler bit then it’s rather frustrating when you have very young children..
swimming pool is dirty with things always floating about.. even if you are first in in the morning..
