I came to the leisure centre today for a single use of the gym, it cost around £6. The gym had all the equipment I needed (though I do have basic needs) but it was all quite sweaty. Also, the air was very humid with...More

This place has gradually got worse, no Rapids or water canon. The whistle nazi's (one in particular) are constantly stopping any fun. Kids were gutted to be honest. The cafe is awful, the menu is hidden on the wall, what's that all about? Not many...More

Went with grandchildren. Water temp fine and changing facilities warm and spacious. However water spray canons inoperative. Rapids section not working...sealed off. Café area a joke. Practically nothing on the menu! Full price for limited facilities. Until fully functional the prices should be reduced.

Web site is not up to date! There are no inflatables, there are no rapids (sectioned off, not working). Changing rooms were very dirty, toilets smelly and over flow leaking. Cafe had no menu displayed, supposed to guess what was available - oh cheesy chips,...More

Pool is very small, deep end very shallow, it gets busy and there were adults swearing (heard F* word from them many times) in front of their children and mine. I would not recommend.

As it's just had a refit with a sauna and steam room I had thought they'd upgrade the showers... they remain open to the pool area and not that warm either. You cannot shower properly in the pool area unless you're an exhibitionist :-(
