The staff are always helpful and the equipment is in good condition and always clean. Plenty of treadmills for the size of the gym and it rarely gets busy to the point where you can't get any equipment.

Good and recently resurfaced indoor five aside and badminton courts. Fitness suite and squash courts are available but I'm getting a bit long in the tooth for them. Changing rooms are adequate but the showers need more regular maintenance and cleaning.
