We brought our toddler here and we all had a great time. The place is spotless. They have family changing rooms which are ideal. They even have highchairs for the smaller babies which is great if it's just one parent and baby. Wish we had somewhere as nice as this closer to home!

Used the gym a few times and thought it was well stocked. The place itself is a good place that holds many events and classes. I'll definitely be signing up for a membership come the Summer.

The gym and pool are both super. Sauna and jacuzzi and steam room top class also. Definitely worth a visit if you want to keep fit without a membership. Great staff also.

Nice, clean and well maintained pool. Proper viewing gallery for sports, as well as an ideal spot in front of the kids' pool for parents. Gym is very good, and there are a couple of indoor halls available, as well as smaller rooms for fitness classes etc. Combined with the running track and outdoor pitches, it really is a great...
