“Clean changing rooms, nice pool”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

I did 20 lengths of the fitness pool, and liked the extra wide lanes, which meant that swimmers didn't bump into one another. The only downside is the VERY restricted public access to this pool. In most public pools, at least two lanes are always available for public use. I could only fit in one swim in the week i was in the area due to the lack of public swimming time.

Thank you for your feedback and glad to hear you enjoyed using the fitness pool.
As the only public, 25m pool in Colchester, we try to balance the programming of the fitness pool for public swimming, schools, clubs and swim lessons.
There is an average of 8 hours public swim time available Monday - Friday. Look forward to seeing you if you are in the area again.

“expensive”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Great if you're on councillors expenses then you can afford it . Probably most expensive in the region, no wonder people are getting fat!

“Good for fun swimming”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

They have a decent sized pool which is good and has a wave machine which switches on every 15 minutes and this is fun. There is also a slide and a good shallow area for little kids as well a "lagoon" for babies. Two Jacuzzi's-one hot and one cold which are very nice and the flumes are also very good fun-I recommend the blue one however the green is good also. Rapids are also good, however they should open them more often. Showers are nice and hot but the "dryer" didn't get me anywhere close to dry. Changing rooms are however spacious and so are lockers. I would definitely return but if you want to get exercise rather than a fun time go to the fitness pool.

“Bit small”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

I thought this place will be massive but I was wrong.

On arrival the complex look big on the outside but the space given to the leisure pool wasn't very big.

It was a Saturday and overcrowded.

There are little slides to keep the young children entertained and big flumes for the big kids.

There was a lack if changing rooms and family changing facilities.
