The warmest pool ever.

This pool could really do with some updating. The changing rooms are very clean. They are a throw back from the 60s and with the metal toilets and cell like cubicles, they... read more

The receptionist was rude and surly when she finally looked up from her phone. It was good of her to share the view of her masticating gum though - really classy. The changing rooms were dirty. We used a family one and found a used tampon stuffed under a bench. When we reported it they seemed utterly uninterested.

How was this monster building planned. It turns its back on the sea a beach is such a brutalist way that it's an opportunity missed. One cannot understand how such a monster gained planning approval.

This pool could really do with some updating. The changing rooms are very clean. They are a throw back from the 60s and with the metal toilets and cell like cubicles, they really are quite depressing. I assume this pool was built in the days of a basket room rather than lockers. Some lockers are in the changing rooms whilst... More

Taking the family swimming on an ad-hoc basis. The receptionist couldn't have been more welcoming; she explained where everything was and where my daughter and I could wait as spectators and my hubby and daughter's changing rooms are and how to get to get through to the pool etc. Lovely pool itself and really quiet, so loads of space to...

When there is no swim school and not many people wanting to swim in the lanes, then this is great value - for £6 on a Friday night a fmaily of 4 can spend from 4pm till 7pm in the pool. However, there are times when there is very little space for young chldren and so it is a bit... More
