I went with a genuinely neutral approach as I haven't had any swimming lessons since I was 7 years old (so 1997 at the latest). I am frightened of water if I can't stand on the bottom and avoid swimming. I booked onto lessons in...More

The gym in the aquatic centre is adequate. The pool side however leaves much to be desired. The changing rooms are always filthy. The pool itself during 'swim for all' or adults swim' is incredibly shallow and isn't of much use if you want a...More

Dirty changing areas, tons of broken lockers, dust clumps and used plasters floating in the water! I left feeling dirty and disgusting, with the fear that I had caught some sort of disgusting disease. I will never return again and recommend people stay away!

We went here hoping for a really good swimming experience in the centre of manchester, that was not what we got.... It wasn't badly priced at all, cheap really, but that's where the good part stops. The very basic shared changing rooms were 'ok', when...More

Arrived to be told that the baby pool is only open for 2 hours a day. Nothing is about that on the website, which has no information. So we had to pay parking for a non event. Staff wouldn't apologise for the misunderstanding. Will never...More
