"Went here when I was looking for gym to join. It's got some impressive features. Decent swimming facilities, sauna and jacuzzi. The gym is very modern and according to the person giving me a tour cost a small fortune. It even has a nice little cafe downstairs. Where it fails for me is in two places. Firstly, the changing facilities look like they forgot to update them with the rest of the centre and are similar to the ones we had in my old school built in the 1930s. Secondly, when I approached one of the fitness centre staff to ask some specific questions I discovered that the qualified instructors were off work that day and that one of the receptionists was filling in."

"good for groups, very big. the pool could do with a clean every so often. and needs to be updated with showers and chaning rooms. but good price and cant really complain."

"If it wouldn't be the only in that area. Absolutely not. Shabby, not well maintained, not very clean. Only paper cups and other throw away dishes. Really not role modelling. Such a difference to any better club or the one in Tiverton. Friendly staff, even you aren't allowed to charge your phone."

"I would like to share my views on barnstaple leisure centre. The building is in desperate need of repair however, plans are afoot for a new building so this can be excused. The classes are wonderful and the booking system simple. Each class facilitator has been professional, upbeat and very ready to help. The reception staff are very rude and make going to the leisure centre an unpleasant experience, I could overlook this had it been a one off occurrence but it is every time I go. I have spoken to the management team regarding the lack of customer service or care provided by these frontline staff but nothing has changed to date (I have been attending since December 2017). I hope that with the new building morale within the reception area will be higher and we, the paying customers may see service with a smile....though I shan't hold my breath."

"It's ok. Good sport facilities. Building is a bit tatty. They'll charge you for use of the toilet if you're not doing anything else. Nice big sports hall and pool. Kids play area also. Good cafe and cheap parking. Often the car park is the best place to park if you're going into town and don't mind the walk over the bridge. Inside the building is better than the outside. Right by the river which is quite nice. Fairly busy."
