We went for the first time today, arrived early too early to go in. So we hung about the amusement area. L but there was no card machine to withdraw any cash which was a bit disappointing. When it came to the facilities and the pool it was Great the water was coloured for valentine’s day which was a lovely touch. My children enjoyed using the slides and exploring the areas. The only downfall was an alarm that kept going off.. which seemed to be an emergency one. But we couldn’t understand anything on the tannoy as it wasn’t coming through clearly. The lifeguards were very helpful and on the ball for any issues. It was a good day out. I’d recommend it at a less busy time but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Great for kids and big kids. Lots of activities. Flume rides wave machine and lane swimming. Very busy when I attended, so changing cubicles were limited. Lots of lockers and regularly cleaned. In general the place is looking a bit tired, but staff were helpful.

First time experience with a 3 and 12 yr old. Neither wanted to get out after the 90min session. In truth neither did my wife or me! Really good fun. Great mix of slides, fantastic toddler area and waves that were surprisingly strong. My eldest LOVED the diving boards, the 1 and 3m were open. Can’t wait to go back. Not a cheap experience at just over £40 but for what you get I think it’s fair.

Easily the best place to swim in Yorkshire. I’ve been coming here since I was a kid I’ve seen it refurbished into something people travel miles to visit… all lifeguards are great and trained very well, they are good with children that visit the pool. Fantastic management if there’s anything wrong these guys are on it 👍

My children loved it. Definitely will be revising. Only down fall was the temperature of the water and the place. It was so cold. Even the baby pool wasn’t as warm as I’d expect my youngest was shivering most of the time. Didn’t stop him having fun though!

Booked in advance. When we arrived, the main pool was closed. Top diving board closed. Had I known, would not have visited. It seems they are only catering for small kids. Need to update the website on openings to avoid wasted trips. Came from Halifax.

It felt like there were too many people on the pool at once. It was so crowded. but apart from that it was a lot of fun and the water slides are decent.

Good if not abit expensive. For the money they charge £40 for 4 people all slides should be open.One lifeguard said staff shortages meant a slide was shut .. should have extra staff
Great experience but could do with more baby changing rooms

Being from Sheffield, this is the closest swimming baths with more than one slide, so we have visited quite a few times.Two large pools, 4 slides, and diving boards. My daughter loves it here. It’s a shame that the highest diving board has not been open for some time but gather there must be a reason for this.Personally I think the place is a little too crowded at a weekend. However, if they reduced the numbers I probably wouldn’t be able to go again, as most of the time we go at short notice.Price is just about right. Definitely not worth any more but at current price I would continue visiting.

Great options for all ages, from the baby & toddler pool, to the wave pool, diving pool & slides. Can get fairly busy but usually still a good amount of space too if you need it. The top diving board was shut when we went but the low & middle boards were still getting a lot of use. Good amount of changing room options too (family rooms & single rooms). Only gave 4 stars instead of 5, as some of the areas seem a little dated and could do with an update.

Took my kids here for a nice day out, we drove an hour and a half to get here and wasn’t disappointed, it was great. Not too many people there was plenty for both my kids to do, the wave machine was perfect. My daughters both loved the four Lane slide, will definitely make the trip again.
