Loved the pools. My boyfriend actually relaxed!!!! Clean changing rooms. Great atmosphere. The staff were kind and approachable. Slightly disappointing that you had to pay extra for the slides. Please update the hairdryers 😊

A great place to go with the kids (young teens) - plenty of pools to find exactly what you're after and to find somewhere not too busy. Kids had fun on the slides as well as relaxing in the hot pools.

Absolute family fun for everyone. Affordable, and the admission fee goes back to the Council. Clean, invigorating and the best way to relax, highly recommend. The private rooms could use a little TLC, but they are publicly owned so a little wear and tear is...More
