    The amount of classes on offer with a membership is great but one thing that bothers me is how cold the swimming pool actually is. Whenever I take my 2 year old to Aquatots, he leaves physically shaking and with blue lips. I have seen several children in the same way after a 30 minute lesson and one time, even the instructor commented on it! Is it possible to increase the temperature of the pool so that our children can learn to swim in a more enjoyable environment? We would go every week if it was warmer!

  2. Ewok Tribesman says:

    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.

    Nice gym, nice and clean and staff seem friendly. But the car park is just a pain. There are never any spaces and it’s far too small especially if you’re going after work, it actually puts me off going at times

  4. Mark Rushworth says:

    Visited for the first time yesterday the pool is ok. Just a rectangle, nothing special. For a new facility I was surprised how broken a lot of y was. Turnstiles out of order, lockers open with no keys, toilets flooded and with a constant flush. Note to calderdale council you can't just build something you have to maintain it.

  5. Mark C says:

    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.
