The changing rooms were really not great but the pool was okay. Everything seemed old and a bit run down. Could be a nice pool with a bit of money invested.

Took my four and five year old today for their first swimming lesson. The changing rooms were awful and in desperate need of renovation. My girls didnot want to get changed they were that bad. My youngest said they smelt of crab sticks which was quite an accurate description. The manager called Jason was very unfriendly and rude towards myself... More

Went here with friends, staff are very passionate about their goals and seemed to take their time and care even though they were busy with their everyday responsibilities. The pool changing rooms would benefit from a makeover but there may not be a budget in place for this with what we saw but if you want good swimming teachers and... More

Took the kids here for swimming lessons. The main swimming instructor came across as unfriendly, almost arrogant. He was quiet weird in his mannerism. I would not be happy leaving anyone's kids under his care, let alone my own!! Definitely a miss.

I wish this pool was just better. Although the pool itself is fine. It's the changing rooms which put me off going. Dirty, falling apart and feel unhygienic. Im a regular swimmer, and it got to the point where I stopped going purely because of the changing rooms. if they were updated I wouldn't mind paying the entrance fee, but... More

We go here quite regularly, love the baby and toddler sessions, warm pool and floats balls etc. could do with a bit of a refurb as is a bit worn and old in changing rooms. But my favourite pool for family swims in Sheffield

Essentially it is a swimmingpool attached to a school, but it is showing signs of its age. The mens changing rooms are only approached by walking alongside the pool itself - not terribly hygeinic. The changing rooms themselves are in quite poor condition. The pool is fairly shallow throughout, the deepest being in the centre, rather than at one end.... More
