Swimming here was a real experience, with the Art Deco and old fashioned changing rooms and decor etc. However, we only managed 20 Minutes in the pool as it was far too salty and full of flies. I'm not exaggerating when I say full! Enjoyed...More

Visited stonehaven for years but first time in the pool. Great to experience it however would have swallowed less salt in the North Sea. Glad to finally have tried it. Would go again.More

Glad to hear you'd come back again KevClock! Though we'd guess you'd swallow just as much salt in the North Sea, as that's where the water comes from! Top tips from frequent pool swimmers: keep your mouth shut when swimming ;-) use the fresh water...More

We spent several hours splashing around and having fun in the lido pool. Outdoors, filled with seawater but heated to 30C so pleasant for proper swimming given the 55 yard length or just relaxing. Also a water slide for the kids and big kids! Nice...More

Was an ok day in the middle of summer, so we braved the pool. We had a great time. I particularly enjoyed the slide. The water is warm just walk quickly when you leave the water!

Thank you for you review Dave1408 and glad you enjoyed your visit to the pool. And yes, we all learn to walk quickly without running (and slipping!) when we come out of the water! Hope to see you back soon.
