Arrived late sunday and the que was very long. Raining and stood in the que for 45min. Got to the front and asked for armbands (we had rang up in the morning and asked for price and told they had some) they said they were out of stock. Which meant we had to leave the que and go to argos... More

I recently got a Life Card, so decided to go with my son and 10 year old granddaughter and for two adults and one child it only cost £8.50. It was very busy as although only Wednesday the children were off school, but we still managed to enjoy ourselves and when the children's pool got too busy we went into... More

The centre issued me with a parking fine of £60 even though my lateness in leaving was due to the pathetic levels of staffing meaning I waited 25 minutes to get in, 10 minutes for a shower & 15 minutes for food. And finally the manager states their is no 2 hour limit for parking for users of the facility... More

Then Sharon stopped teaching, we got a new teacher in May and since then my daughter has not been taught anything, she has gone backwards on... More

Came down for a swim today with my 5 year old daughter and yet again the main slide was closed. This isn't the first time this has happened and it's a bit frustrating having paid full price to get in. I understand the odd one off but for it to be closed the last 4 times I've been is unacceptable.

I visited the centre today and asked the receptionist before I paid if both the slides were working. She told me they were. Once in the pool I noticed there were no children coming down the main slide. I asked a member of staff why and she shrugged her shoulders and replied 'not enough staff'. I wasn't satisfied with this... More

No spaces in the carpark, no on road parking, class booked £5:00 no show fee or £100:00 parking fine for parking 'illegally'? Win, win for Hillsborough Leisure Centre and the carpark company. So you want to get healthy? Jog or walk to the gym or pool and avoid unnecessary costs! Disgusting ways to rip of customers who pay hundreds of... More

Wrote a review a while ago about this leisure centre pointing out that its cafe wasn't the best however have not visited for a while and decided to go. Have to say the pool cafe has had an overhaul and now offers healthier choices from handmade smoothies containing really fruit to jacket potatoes and salad prices were very reasonable smoothies...
