Attended the SASA north district gala at the weekend. Everything was great, except trying to get anything from the café. When buying drinks we still had to queue along with everyone else who were ordering and waiting for hot food. It took a very long time , especially as it was so busy. Most, if not all, of the vending... More

We had a lovely day at this pool. Changing rooms were clean and tidy and the place seemed well run. They have a coloured band system but the loud speaker wasn't loud enough to hear, but they didn't seem too strict about the bands anyway. Good fun for the kids.

We had a lovely family swim here. Pool is small but there's wave machine and rapids river although it's more of a lazy swim as the Rapids didn't seem to be on. Chutes are good, there's 3, 1 with a rubber ring that's a good laugh. £17 for a family afternoon, that and a lovely walk from the centre of... More

Quick pre evening meal dip at the end of the day. Was recommended that I use the single reserved swimmers lane in main pool. This was quiet but rest of pool was being used by various groups for lessons. Nevertheless it suited my needs and I enjoyed my first swim in my years. Just wish I had mastered their coding... More

Visited here for the first time, great fun, clean, very helpful staff. Flumes were great fun, wave machine was fun, rapid river was the only disappointment, more like a slow stream, not sure if it was actually on though!!.. Not expensive, flumes are free (unlike Aberdeen) pool was clean (unlike Aberdeen), Changing area was clean, (unlike Aberdeen), staff were friendly... More

This is the second time coming here, this time we decided to pay £7.30 for everything Included. So we got to use the sauna, the jacuzzi, and the main pool with the 3 slides, the slides were great but we mainly stayed with the jacuzzi. it's so worth the price, will defiantly go again soon.

If you have a question to be answered, just answer it yourself. If you ask a lifeguard a question he was very and extremely good at his job and very helpful. I say this because I ask him a question and he just shrugged his shoulders! The receptionists are slow and moody. The swimming pools are quite dirty. The toilets... More
