    Beautiful complex but damaged as not managed correctly. Such a shame!!!! Gym and swimming pool - overcrowded No lockers available, WC not working at all!!!! Nursery/creche => top notch and very professional staff. However parents are a shame. They book and don't turn up with their baby. This morning was supposed to be fully booked 9-11am and only two babies including mine were there! They should get a blame !!!!

    Britannia Leisure Centre- family fun swim at Splash Pool As a mum of three, I was excited to treat my boys to a fun day out at Britannia Leisure Centre Splash Pool during their school holiday. Unfortunately, our experience over two days was far from pleasant. **Day 1: Disappointment Due to Boiler Issues** On May 30th, we arrived at the leisure centre only to be informed that there was an issue with the boiler, and no one was being allowed in. This was despite seeing families swimming and enjoying themselves through the splash park window. We were given a refund, but my boys were left disappointed after traveling from Brockley, which is a one-hour journey each way. **Day 2: Misleading Ticket Purchase and Unhelpful Staff** Determined to give it another try, we returned the next day. However, upon arrival, I was informed that I couldn't take my three boys (aged almost 3, 4, and nearly 8) into the pool without an extra adult. This was frustrating because I was able to purchase the tickets online without any indication of this requirement. Even though my eldest son is a proficient swimmer, we were still denied entry. This resulted in us losing another day that could have been spent enjoying quality family time. The staff we encountered were not particularly helpful and seemed indifferent to our situation, which added to the disappointment. **Final Thoughts** While I acknowledge that I should have read the terms and conditions, the booking system should not allow the purchase of tickets if the conditions for entry cannot be met. This oversight led to two wasted days and three very disappointed children. What was supposed to be a lovely family outing turned into a frustrating and disheartening experience. I hope Britannia Leisure Centre can improve its booking system and customer service to prevent other families from going through a similar ordeal.
