I go to the rink to watch Ice Hockey. The facilities are appalling, especially for disabled people. The floor is uneven and lifting in places, which is a trip hazard. The seats provided are very low, and there is a free-for-all for space when it’s...More

Whilst the skating experience is great, and there's nothing bad to say about the staff, the facilities within the building are like something out of the dark ages. Whilst I can understand the catering facilities being limited, there is no excuse at all for the...More

Friendly helpful staff providing a safe and fun environment for everyone. Good value too. There is masses of parking right outside the door, although it is council owned pay and display, making attending the rink super easy.

The Ice Rink is located exactly opposite the train station which makes it a quick 2 minute walk across the bridge and into the rink - perfect for rainy days. Another plus is that there are lockers available for storing items (£1 per 3 hours)...More
