I love this gym so much. I always dread going to the gym but as soon as I step foot I’m greeted with a smile and it instantly pumps me up for a good session. I started here last summer and then stopped ( nothing to do with the gym I just …

I’m loving coming here. Other users of facilities and instructors are so friendly. Class quality is great. Changing rooms are cleaned regularly. I’m recovering from major surgery and this place has been such a joy to me in difficult times. 🙂

Very clean pool and place, timing agenda well-organized, not crowded, good size of lockers and changing kiosks, friendly staff and safeguards, not overly warm pool water temperature, nice warm showers for afterwards. We had a nice family time just before Sunday lunch. We’re really thinking about becoming members. Recommended!

Take my little one swimming classes here . The facilities are clean and staff are welcoming which is rare to find with gym receptionist.
Parking however is shambolic. Although you can advise on street parking it doesn’t seem practical with a baby after swimming ! If this is seen to then no complaints

Dissapointing customer service with a poor interest in helping or supporting any need or request. Although the teachers are good, this is completely ruined with their lack of empathy and listening capacity.

General manager that allowed parking a skip in the middle of the car park when it could have been put in the coach area corner needs firing or a disciplinary. Surely lots of general managers are looking for work out there but have common sense.

Be cautious and do not trust what staff tells you about memberships.

A nice leisure centre, with great facilities for both the gym and pool. Only letdown is parking (although the street opposite is available if you’re lucky to find a spot), and the poor app you need to use (which isn’t a representation of the staff, rather the company that manages the centre).

Swimming pool is always clean, never too busy. Changing rooms are clean, shower floor can be a bit slimy if going at the end of the day. Reasonable price. Only criticism is tiny car park and the hairdryers are hand dryers mounted on the wall, not comfortable for drying your hair.

A good place for swimming, gym workouts or Martial Arts, self defence tuition. Our 32 month old g/daughter thoroughly enjoyed her first swimming pool trip. We’ll use facilities again in future. TQ to the staff we liaised with to use a trial free pass. Easy to access and well patronized.

Nice and clean pool. Price for one time entry only £4,60 and that’s good. Make sure you check online if there is window for recreational swimmers, before you visit. Between 3pm and 4pm only few swimmers was in there, comfortable. You can use leisure card.

Website misleading on swim, complained along with other swimmers about kids messing about while others trying to swim and told by duty manager that segregating the pool into swimmers and those in the pool for fun doesn’t work. Staff unhelpful generally and although the facilities are good we won’t be visiting again.

the facility is nice but such a shame that the receptionist staff are rude and inconsiderate. They did not allow me in even though I had half an hour before closing.
