All four ladies showers either out of order or with temperature control issues. Over a week since latest complaint. No shower gel. Dirty floors. Young staff getting constant grief from users and no support from management. Utterly useless

The jacuzzi is broken valve again. This happens regularly. What is worse is the sheer incompetence of the management team to get it fixed in a timely manner. Utterly useless!!

Doors missing and nothing but a trickle from their terrible showers in locker rooms. Absolutely appalling for the price they charge. Needs refurb. Also only one jaccuzzi when there is clearly enough memberships and people using Pace to warrant another. It is always full.
