The pools is so dirty, u get changed in the dirtiest changing rooms, if the floors are cleaned the dirts just moved around. The toddler slides are all closed, I was told (when starting membership) they will be refurbished but have since been told they are closed till further notice and there's no plans to refurb... not great when you...

I would not recomment this pool at all. I swim most Monday evenings after work for pleasure and social - not professional or serious. The water is always cold but seemed more cold last night to the point of shivering and very uncomfortable to swim in. Last night a group of young boys 11 - 12 - started to play... More

In the week there are only two lanes open in the morning, a Fast and Medium and the rest of the pool is for all other swimmers. (These lanes are marked) There are a... More

Went for a Sunday morning family swim. Though small and busy the main pool was fine. The little ones' pool (with the slides) however was particularly busy- too many people to really enjoy the experience. The worst bit was the temperature. The water temperature felt on the cool side but the air temperature was the real problem. It was so... More

It's fitted with water jets etc but I've never seen any work since it was opened, is a nice family pool but has potential to have water jets and fountains etc but nothing's changed since opened .think they need...
