  • Dirty discussing place health hazard. Really don’t know how it’s still open. I bring my granddaughter here for lessons as she loves skating but I think it’s open for just pure greed of the owner as it...  more »

  • We normally skate in Cardiff but thought it would be nice to skate on holiday. It is like going back to the70’s as said in another review. The quality of the ice was terrible. Stalagmites on the floor...  more »

  • We've decided to take up skating as a family and this is our closest rink. The ice is fairly good in general, definitely not wet, although condensation drips can make for rough spots in places. It's also a reasonably big rink and while it isn't new it's perfectly functional. The public skating sessions are 2 hours long. We've not been terribly impressed with the skates they hire. It can take quite a few iterations to find ones that aren't blunt. We've bought our own adult skates now (there's a good shop on site), and second-hand ones for the kids, as having your own sharp skates makes all the difference. There are quite a few instructors available if you want private lessons and they seem reasonably priced. If you have weekdays available, it's a really good quiet time to meet the instructor and the ice is really smooth. There are group adult and children's lessons available too.
  • Started skating as a hobby in February and really enjoy it. The adult lessons cater for all abilities and the coaches are helpful and friendly. The ice surface here isn't always the best, the hire skates are not great, and the decor is very dated, but overall it's a good place to learn to skate.
  • Great place to skate, for both amateurs and those who know what they're doing. Great fun.
  • The staff are friendly, the skaters always seem to be friendly too, the shop on site is great value particularly if you want to buy skates. If you have lessons the coaches are great, really effective and non-judgemental teachers.
  • Cold, dark and dank, an ice rink with character and a lot of history. Lovely people as well.
