Nice pool if not divided into 25m section - so often. But there are not many options in Hobart, so it is what it is. Main 50m pool area is a little dark for my liking but it is generally well-maintained and clean. The change rooms are clean too.

Staff are friendly and helpful.

Parking can be a pain - when the place is busy, it is very busy! Visit after 5pm for a more quiet experience.

I had a quick swim here in the early evening. It was busy but there were a few lap lanes available. The student entry is now $6.90 which seems quite high. Public change rooms are now much cleaner and nicer.

I enjoyed a swim here today. Although there was a carnival, they had lanes in the dive pool. I wish the student entry price was lower.

This is a good place for a lap swim. They have done some renovations on the changing rooms which is welcome. Why are the concession entry prices so high? What happened to half price entry?

Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre is a great place for a swim all year round. It's nice and warm there in the winter, the facilities are great, and they have just refurbished all the changing rooms - which were in need of a spruce-up, it's true.

I am back working in town so I have a fortnightly aquatic membership - I enjoy a lunchtime swim. I don't think it is quite a dirty as some reviewers think... but it can always be better - especially in the member change rooms.

I have never been to a dirtier aquatic centre in my life. Absolutely mortified. The scum lines were the worst I have ever seen. The lifeguard was too busy doing pool tests to even look up at the patrons and customer service staff were useless, once we were finally acknowledged and knew nothing about the merchandise they were selling. I debated even swimming and could only handle a few laps before feeling gross and leaving

This place is so dirty. The level of scum on the edges of the pool, bottoms of the pool that haven’t been cleaned are so obvious. It took the customer service 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged.

I enjoyed an afternoon swim here while in town for the day. They have made some improvements but the main change room is a bit run down. The student rate of $6.60 for a swim is a bit steep.

Although I live some 300 kms away, it is always great to be able to swim some laps in the Hobart Aquatic Centre as it is one of extremely few indoor 50 metre pool options available in Tasmania. Even the Launceston Aquatic Centre is generally only in 50 metre mode on Saturday mornings. With the rebuild of the 25 metre pool going on, the 50 metre pool was busier than normal when I was in Hobart recently so it was great to see the lifeguards encouraging patrons to use the lanes relevant to their ability and speed. Full marks also to all staff including the reception staff for their clear advice, friendliness, and hygiene alertness. On the negative side, the facility could be cleaner and the external ramp is still quite slippery on wet or icy days.
