    Far better than Kirklees' facilities. The staff are polite, welcoming, and helpful! That makes such a difference to the overall atmosphere, compared to other facilities in the area. The pools are a reasonable temperature and the locker/changing rooms are usually very clean. Unfortunately the showers can be temperamental in temperature, but I think that's being worked on. There's good availability for public swims, unlike many other pools in the area. My only real issues are with the car park, it's quite small. I know that's not really something that can be helped, but it's badly laid out and I feel like some people park in there when they're not going into the fitness centre. I regularly have to drive around waiting for a space to open up, which means I sometimes miss the first part of the swim session. The other reason I can't give it 5 stars is because they don't take cash. It's card only, which is a little annoying. I prefer to pay by cash for a few reasons. The lockers require a pound coin to work anyway, so I have to take both card and cash. I would probably get a membership and use the gym facilities as well, if they were open a bit longer, but I would barely be able to use it with the current opening hours, which is a shame.

    Pool often closed midweek for school swimming lessons. Gym equipment is good, but opening hours are limited, opens later and closes earlier than most Gyms. Upstairs changing rooms not cleaned as often as they need to be and are sometimes dirty. At times the gym is full of school kids in large groups, hanging around the machines, preventing others from using them and acting silly in the changing rooms with no supervision. A policy change is required.

  3. Kelly James says:

    Good parking and good range of classes just disappointing that opens at 7am so no chance to go before work. Most gyms open at 6am

  4. Stuart Bannister says:

    Went to the swim for all , its all relaxed and friendly. Any chance of some music whilst swimming, and a bigger clock please.

  5. Christine Marshall says:

    Pool is clean and facilities for taking children are good. The temperature of the water however is on the cool side for babies and i had to come out before I really wanted to as my grandson had blue lips. Would be useful if it could be a little warmer as other facilities in the area are.
