  • The place was better in the past and things have changed for the worse. The gym used to be great, outside swimming pool is now a carpark. The main carpark is expensive and has less spaces. The staff d...  more »

  • It's functional. As the new centre is being built there isn't much improvement work going on. In the ladies group changing room they used to have a playpen where babies could be left safely. It must have been broken and the replacement isn't good at all. As it doesn't have a bottom and child would be sitting on the wet tiles. It's a mistake.
  • A decent sized leisure center with good facilities and a wide range of activities to take part in. I can only review the swimming pool which was clean and in good order as we're the changing rooms. The staff I spoke with were polite and friendly and the place appeared to be well maintained.
  • Great leisure centre. Gym is small but well equipped. Very friendly staff. Clean and modern although dated. New leisure centre is being built in the car park and will be ready late 2018.
  • Watch out, staff will overcharge you for the swimming; it's happened to me on more than one occasion! It happened again today which is the last straw and why I'm writing this review. Staff are always unfriendly. It's very expensive for what you get. The changing room facilities are pretty filthy, lacking in hooks, the showers hardly work and many are completely broken or malfunctioning. The kids pool is the worst in the county as far as I can tell. Their swimming lessons for kids are a waste of time and money. Parking is atrocious. Cafe charges London prices. I'll be going to Witham instead from now on, not that it's much better but at least they have parking and they don't try to rip you off.
  • Reception staff are very rude and not very welcoming at all. The badminton courts are good, but we were sent to them and told to use whichever one was free, which I felt was very unprofessional anyway, but when we went upstairs, all the courts were taken. We had to ask people what time they were finishing.
