Sadly didn’t have the best experience. Arrived at 10 to 4 and asked if I could pay and go for free swim as wanted to do some lengths. Lady at reception advised that the current session was only on until 4:30pm and was that OK if not I could …

Decent facilities. Pool is good, well maintained, locker rooms are very good.

Three stars because of the male changing rooms, way to small. Definitely need to …

Leisure pool is small, shallow and quite cool in temperature. Can’t access main pool on leisure pool ticket. No really happy medium between toddlers and bigger kids. Staff were very nice.

Only ever used the leisure pool but nice for little ones with slides and sprinklers, sometimes water can be a bit cold, the inflatable course looked good!

Went swimming today and it was freezing my child’s lips and skin were blue… when I asked the lifeguard if it gets any warmer he said it doesn’t and he doesn’t know anymore as it’s above his pay grade definitely will be finding somewhere else to swim in the near future. Parish Wharf used to be good but has gone downhill immensely

Nicely organised swim place but wven with onkine booking its very slow to get in so quite a queue, with little ones excited to go can be a challenge. Nice organisation of small area

They reduced the pool temperature to save energy bills now my children refuse to to into the pool for classes because it too freezing cold! It’s heart breaking seeing my children shivering in the pool then come out with purple lips and blue …

It was okay…my 2 and a half yr old daughter enjoyed the slide, but apart from that it’s pretty basic, could be improved massively for the little ones!…also wasn’t the warmest. …

As a local I have used this swimming pool for years. It just seems to be getting worse and worse recently. Ironically as you go in the changing rooms there are signs asking you to remove your shoes to ‘keep the changing rooms clean’ however …

Dislike the strict time slot system currently in place at the leisure centre. Swimming sessions are not long enough – between 45-60 minutes maximum. If you have young children you will now need to choose whether you book for the small …

Cold water in the fun pool. Overzealous jobsworth lifeguards threatening to throw kids out for the slightest transgressions. Not much fun for a fun pool!

Parking spaces are quite narrow, especially if trying to get kids in and out of cars. Family cubicles could do with being a bit wider and more of them too.
Staff are okay, some friendly and helpful others are a bit frosty.

It has now become a seriously good gym…we went to the new Pure Gym for 3 weeks ..showers never hot…only 6 spin bikes…(although they were much better than the very old ones at Parish)…at £28 per month including classes, swimming, off peak badminton you can’t go wrong.

Coming here, you get the very real impression the people who run it cannot stand their customers and have devised a series of small but very irritating ways to get revenge on them. The pool is always slightly too cold, you have to bring …

Absolutely filthy. Toilets and basin didn’t look like it had been cleaned in months. Floors need a damn good clean. They are really slippery too. My child went flying and was walking holding my hand and nearly took me with them. Not funny …

Staff were great and the pool was awesome for the kids! Little annoying about the padlock for the lockers but I guess we could have checked on the website as we just assumed the normal pound or wrist band key.

Gym was good pre-pandemic. They have locked away too many of the machines and have the space to add more, the result is not everything you need is available. The pool is also now pointless, you change in front of everybody and is centered …

Love this place. Such a great gym/ classes and pool with amazing value if you sign up monthly. I love the virtual 30 mins classes too…no fuss, you can just whip in for a burst of body balance or bodypump and keep your health mission on track. Very well organised since Covid too. Feel very reassured going there.

3.5-4* really. The pool is reasonable. Good size and temperature, not fantastically clean, changing rooms aren’t all that good, we popped into a cubicle then noticed blood on the floor… Staff are usually great but a few have been a bit a bit rude or unhelpful.

I’ve been a member for three years and can tell you that, except for the PTs, nobody cares about you. They’re all jobsworths. Membership is a total rip off, with no options for gym-only usage. I don’t want to use the pool as the water is …

Good leisure centre that isn’t too pricey. The classes are really good but this does unfortunately mean they are rather busy!! Sometimes there are issues with showers etc which is only reason for the lost star. Good facilities in the gym and all the staff are friendly!

Gym equipment is worn out and in need of replacing. There’s also young kids under 11 using the equipment with no idea what they are doing and highly likely to hurt themselves

Disapointed once again. Main pool freezing cold 3rd time in a row . You would like to think after having a new heating system put in it would actually be warm

Nice pool for children, however it got to the stage they stopped people going in as it was “busy” and implemented a one in one out policy, possibly due to only having one lifeguard on. …

Good, clean gym with a great selection of free weights and machines. Plenty of space so you don’t get showered in sweat by the person next to you! Swimming pool is average though and is in desperate need of some tlc.

Reasonable swim and clean pool but way too over complicated padlock system for lockers that is not v disability accessible/friendly. In addition required to support additional wristband to prove you have paid.

Nice swimming pools and good hot tub. It’s often crowded and the place isn’t too big. For swimming, the open air pool is a better choice. I can’t comment on the gym but from what I can see they have everything from a gym that you’d want

Filthy floors in changing rooms despite attendants ‘wiping’ them, chewing gum stuck to cubicle wall, thick layer of dust along top of tiling- couldn’t find a private shower. Poolside seating rusting just adding to overall impressions that this place needs some tlc

Can’t comment on the Leisure Centre in general. I park there for a weekly Health Walk with the Portishead Strollers, and used to pop in to use the loo in prepandemic times. Seems to be getting busy again. They’re installing EV charging points which I may use.

Really annoyed at the disregard shown for your personal property. If your child leaves clothing on the premises they will dispose of them within 24 hours. The rationale is hygiene but this is the only leisure centre I have ever been to that …

The Staff are very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is fantastic and good for burning off the calories in your body,the legs,bums,tums is fantastic for good health and the Gym is really good to use weight. The cycling class is great with burning off calories. The zumba is fantastic as I really like it. From Suzy Cranney

Tired and in serious need of refurbishment. The paint is flaking, the two water slides are broken and the over we all appearance is quiet tatty. The water temperature is always too cold, especially for very young children.

The pool is always very cold when it’s not closed because of some fault. Unfortunately it hasn’t been well looked after and could do with some significant investment. I recommend either Bradley Stoke or Clevedon as an alternative until proper repairs are made.

The changing rooms and floors are really dirty. Dirty unbagged nappies under the benches and litter. The floor is always dirty. This has been reported to reception many times. It can be very unpleasant. I wish it was cleaner as otherwise it is a good facility.
