Lovely place to go if you have kids! Not enough shower/ changing rooms for the amount of people . Decent catering facilities but I reckon a cafe maybe with cooked food will go down well .

My son was invited to a party here. First visit so he was very excited. The pool itself seemed clean and well maintained and he had a great time. We will def be revisiting. My only criticism was that the staff were aware that there were going to be a lot of children there but there were not enough chairs... More

My husband and I use this pool for the over 50's swim in the mornings. When we visit the staff are friendly, the changing rooms are warm, dry and clean, and the pool is also warmish. We are happy with it, but in the past I have visited when it has been very crowded and less salubrious. The complex is... More

I always enjoy swimming here, staff are very helpful and the accessibility and new changing room with hoist etc is absolutely great. Water is also a nice temperature.

The seperate areas of this pool with differing depths made it ideal for younger kids who like their independence. The big flume is well situated and great that toddlers are allowed on knees. Price to enter was very reasonable only down side is the changing facilities are not great fit families

I went here today with my children aged 9 and 10. We've been a few times but not for at least a year. This time I booked fast track tickets in advance as had queued a long time in the past. Our time slot was 11.10 but we arrived 20 mins early and went straight through. As always everyone had... More

We visited on a Friday which was an inset day from school. Walked straight to tills and through into changing rooms. It was very quiet so got a cubicle and locker straight away.

We drove an hour and a half to get there. Queued for forty minutes and when we got to the counter we were told the Rapids bit wasn't operating. But the flume was! The flume on a day when the Rapids are on has queues so long that you may get two in your allotted time. So I couldn't imagine... More

Hi Eileen, We are sorry that you experienced these problems with queuing. Unfortunately at the time of your visit we were experiencing issues with the Rapids and had to close the section- resulting in a back-log in other areas of the facility.
