Very lovely. Clean and neat. Floors were just extremely slippery which is a huge hazard especially for kids and elderly. It took a concerted effort to walk around the pool without slipping. Even with pool sandals on very slippery. Apart from that very pleasant experience. No hairdryers in the changeroom also.

I love both the rheumatoid pool and the warm pool at the hydro. As the heated pool is both indoor and outdoor it caters for everyone. It wasn't very busy and there were plenty of loungers in the shade, I imagine it could be a different story in season. The staff are not overly friendly or visible. The surrounds are... More

The Hydro @ the Warmbaths Resort is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the water. The main pool in the Hydro runs both inside and outside the complex, allowing you to hide from the midday sun when it gets too hot outside - but don't be fooled the water is warm. There is a Rheumatism pool and cold showers,... More

Beautiful clean pools, relaxing atmosphere. No credit/debit card machine inside at the kiosk. We were however able to pay via card at the entrance.

We love to visit the Hydro during winter as a break away from the miserable cold. One feels free to swim in the gorgeous warm pools and relax all your tense muscles, aches and pains. The rheumatism pool is heated to the extreme and is worth a short dip to give the feeling of deep calmness.

This place is not far away from GP but it offers the feeling of being far away from the hussle of the big city. The Hydro is such a nice place to lie, relax and distress. The warm water has a healing effect I cannot explain to me. It is also suitable for the young and old with different pools... More

Relaxing in the nice warm water. It also has an outside section if inside is to warm for you but just right to completely relax before going to bed.

Fun in the hydro. It's always topfun. Nice warm water. Love the sprinkling waters. Plunge pool could of been a little more deeper. The two showers is also not enough. Outside part of hydro is super cool, specially in winter.

Our 5 & 8 year boys had an absolute blast at the Forever Resorts pools and slides. The water was nice and warm and the boys spent a couple of hours in the water. Great place for a day out with your family.
