We visited here on Friday evening and there were only a few people in the pools. The entry fee was very reasonable, and the parking free. The changing rooms were the strictest iv seen anywhere but it was all in the name of hygiene. Boots...More

Went here after a day on the glacier. Entrance for a family of 4 including towels was £50 which is excessive. Several hot tubs of differing temperatures and a ice plunge for the brave.

Spotlessly clean and great value, one warmish main pool so even in November it wasn't too cold once you got moving. 2 lovely hot "hot pots" to warm up after and while away some happy time.
