There is a big car park. I was at Sunday. Not too busy, the swimming was good. I used the sauna. The sauna door always dirthy. A bigger problem is that not even a hair dryer works, which is very bad in winter. I felt good overall, but my head is very cold.

This is an excellent facility. Gym sauna steam room. And great value. You would pay x3 more at a private club for a worse facility. Staff are excellent. There are some minor issues but to be honest this facility is the best value in the area

Great facilities. We used the soft play which was clean and not so busy. The centre itself was quite lively with lots of families swimming or doing other sports. Great running track on site.

Great clean swimming pool, although the lockers could do with some renovation/maintenance. The air in the pool area smelt wonderfully sweet!

The facilities are great, unfortunately the staff at the front desk are very rude, disorganised and unprofessional. I feel maybe they could do with some grown ups working at the front and organising things properly.

This isn’t a bad leisure centre, but it’s not great either. The positives are there’s lots to do, the climbing wall is great fun and the soft play there is great for my daughter. The swimming lessons she goes in are also very good. …

The climbing wall here is really good and the staff that run this section (especially Dave) are really friendly and supportive. He made our experience what it was and helped us to gain more confidence on the wall. Thank you for a great day!

Sign in system must have been made by a trainee IT employee and miserable front desk act like they are doing you a favour by signing you in if the machines are slow. Learn to smile and not be a miserable bunch. Not all but the older ones look like they’ve given up on life

I went there for a coffee, but the coffee area was closed, so had a packet of crisps from one of the many vending machines. I sat on a plastic chair whilst eating them so was nice that they provide crisp eating chairs. 10/10

Very well run. Helpful and friendly Reception (knowledgeable and fast). Place is clean, good equipment and the one trainer I have met (so far) has been really excellent. Small things like the large car park and a decent cafe also help.

On the day it was a bit of a shambles for my child’s party, sadly I cannot give a glowing review as the kitchen was closed because of a staff shortage, not something that could be helped but spoilt the day and my opinion.

Double booked the badminton courts again. No manager on duty. Only young staff to deal with the problems. We also go along and find there’s no net for badminton so we have to ask for it, and the basketball net is in the way. These transitions seem to surprise them every time!!!

Update: Nov 2023 – has improved, staff seem more helpful. Initial review: Service varies widely depending on who you get. Staff seem overworked and some are just not bothered about helping, making excuses or blaming the ‘system’ for their mistakes, leading to inconsistent customer service.

Haven’t used the gym but used the pool the other day. The pool itself was nice but unfortunately the female changing rooms were utterly disgusting and smelt of urine everywhere. It was absolutely terrible. Floors sopping wet and filthy too. I didn’t even dare to enter a toilet cubicle because of the stench. Wont be going back!!!!

I have only used the pool here. They have slow, medium and 2 fast lanes which are open to about 15.00, when the lanes are taken down. Changing facilities are good with plenty of lockers. The bottom of the pool can look dirty. I have no idea how often the pool is cleansed. There is always a lifeguard on duty.

Usual leisure centre facilities, separate kids pool, outdoor football pitches, soft play area is tall (three or four levels) but small footprint so good for one or two visits before getting bored. Will have a lot of development starting outside soon I think. Nice location by the Thames.
