  • Great leisure centre. Nice swimming pool but the most important thing... water temperature is 28°C which is actually pleasant to get in. Decent size gym. Good classes choice and lots of other things to do in offer. There's shop as well to buy swimming costume etc. And cafe with good food and prices. Nice climbing wall.
  • I have been using Westminster Lodge for 15 years - both the old and new centres. Despite it's age and failings, I think the old centre was more user friendly. The new centre has a smaller, shallower pool with no high diving. And it's like a sauna in there. No fun at all to have to sit there and wait for your kids. The changing rooms are more hygienic than the old centre, but they seem inadequate for the volume of people using the facilities. The restaurant is...adequate. The climbing wall is a good addition, and the gym seems excellent (but I have not used it). The pool is too small! Why, when the new centre was built, did St. Alban's not get an Olympic sized facility? Ridiculous decision. Parking is vast, but usually packed. An "okay," modern sports centre, but not the greatest experience.
  • I use the gym frequently as I live just over 5 minutes walk from the site. Have been a member since the new facility opened in Autumn 2012. The gym is well equipped and all the machines were replaced about a year ago so no issues there, but the changing facilities by the men’s gym are poor and lack of maintenance obvious. After writing to the site manager about this this at the start of the year there was some action and more locker space was made available in the changing room. Apparently there were missing locker keys and some members kept their gym equipment in the lockers 24/7. It’s not a private members club. The management cannot be blamed for the unreasonable behaviour of some members but they could make a better effort in maintaining the facilities, and I agree with a previous review that cleanliness and hygiene is poor in the changing room. As a senior member I pay £39/month and as a regular user it’s just about worth it, but the overall experience disappointing.
  • Expensive, very badly managed, cleanliness is like a public toilet in the subway. They do not answer telephone. From 3 attempt ringing them 2-3 minutes. Barrier systems are time to time holding back when you attempt to enter, card readers quite often do not operate appropriately. Keep us back for about a minute .. this is only annoying. Gym other hand is well equipped but way too crowded.. Cabinets and toilets in changing room require a.proper repair and maintanance on regular basis. Hangers are broken coin droppers are often do not operate.. Way too expensive and absolutely low hygiene.. cleanliness is below any standards.. Paying around £ 85/ month..
  • used the pool with our 3 year old and it was excellent. Just a shame the changing rooms didn't have enough family rooms to get changed easier and some of the lockers need some tlc
