In need of TLC but does the job

We enjoy spending a Saturday morning here but it does feel a little tired. I hadn't been in about 20 years and I don't think it has changed in that time. A little TLC and it would... read more

An excellent facility for the kids, but NO good if you just want a steady swim. Lovely friendly staff, good cafe and brilliant parking facilities.

Great staff, loads of lifeguards and waves every half hour. Brilliant! Absolute rubber ring heaven. Also I managed to lose my wedding ring 😣 but when I got home the pool staff called me and they'd actually found it!!! 😆😆😆 I picked it up the following day. These guys rock.

We enjoy spending a Saturday morning here but it does feel a little tired. I hadn't been in about 20 years and I don't think it has changed in that time. A little TLC and it would be great. That aside, it is still fun for kids and different to your average swimming pool.

Having not been to this pool for nearly a decade, I brought my youngest for hours first time here. He loved it! Not many things have changed; the pool and slides and lazy river are all in good order and provide plenty for all abilities. There is a separate pool for the smaller ones and the temperature is as warm... More

I went with my son & grandson, there was no discount for OAP's so I paid £4.80 and my son paid £4.40 with included the child. There were more broken lockers than not, the changing facilities were very small, and very dirty. Broken changing room locks & hinges. The whole area was in a state of disrepair and in my... More

the pool needs updating gutting and remodelling ... It must have looked good in its day but for now the outside is a sham and a waste of space ... the inside has not a lot of room to swing a cat as the expression goes. ... the lockers are small to share and the changing units are uncleansed and...

The place is very dated looks like something from the 80s. The place is not that clean and it is a bit run down it is very popular with local kids so there is a lot of chlorine in the water. The food in the cafe is a disgusting try Bracknell coral reef pool it is way superior and you... More

We'd been to the Oasis before but when we arrived it was in such a state of disrepair I wondered whether it was still in business. The place looked like it had been abandoned with the outside fountains long obsolete. Inside was little better: tiny changing rooms, many broken lockers, and just a feeling that the place wasn't clean. The... More

Went with the kids earlier today. The outside area was open so we all had fun being swept up in the rapids. The girls went on the slides a few times while I took things easy in the jacuzzi. Food was tasty (if a little overpriced) but all in all a good time had by all.
