Run by the gestapo aka North Lanarkshire council. Not shy in bullying small business and homes in the area for tax and rates but dosent invest in a decent gym and pool for the locals. Puregym has opened and wiped the floor with Aquatec, Its just a shame Puregym dosent have a pool. Quite arrogant staff and expensive to take... More

Joined the gym through necessity, not choice. The first thing you notice is the air conditioning which is very welcome. There are hundreds of machines to choose from and you never have to wait for any machine as there is so much choice. The staff are always on hand to give advice on how to use machines etc.

I often go to the Time Capsule because it's within walking distance, but i thought I'd venture out a bit further and take my daughter a drive to the Aquatec for a change of scenery. I really should not have bothered! First approach of the reception was ok but then walked down the stairs to the changing area, looked around... More

If this was a private facility I would suggest North Lanarkshire Council would close it down - and rightly so. The facilities are tired and thats an understatement. The main door for disabled access hasnt worked for months. The communal changing area is grimey and the tiling within the pool area is far beyond appearing clean. Tiles missing all over... More

Visited here a couple of days ago, it was a beautiful day so thought I'd take my little brother (age 3) swimming, pool didn't open till half 4 so had to potter about for a while just to go into a dirty, boring pool ! Pool had bugs floating about and wrappers in the water, children's poor was freezing! One... More

I will never return here. Paid for spa rooms. No one showed me where to go. Smells of urine and is unclean. Nemerous men shaving in the steam rooms. Very unnerving for a lone female. Jacuzzi only open when pool is open and that is after 4 in the afternoon even although I was there at 11am. Not worth a... More

Having read the reviews on the swimming in the aquatec I was expecting the worst! But i wanted to give it a try. I haven't been in the place since I was young myself. Went tonight with my hubby and 3 year old daughter and our 8 month old daughter. It was £17 for admission. I thought this was very... More
