Leisure Club FAQ
Why do you need to bring your registration card?
This card proves to the health club you are a current guest with the hotel. Once this is shown as proof of being a current guest the staff can then distribute towels and a padlock for a locker, which is complimentary from the hotel.
Why are there 10-minute cycles on the jacuzzi?
Our swimming pool and jacuzzi use calcium hypochlorite (chlorine) as its disinfectant against bacteria. If the jacuzzi were constantly on or people were allowed to sit in it constantly the chlorine levels would become off balance and we would regularly have to close it to re-fill with fresh water. This can take several hours to get back up to temperature. Having a 10 minute on/10 minute off cycle allows the chlorine to get back to full strength to keep bathers safe.
Why are no under 8's in the Jacuzzi?
Due to the higher temperatures, the jacuzzi needs more chlorine than a pool to kill the larger amounts of bacteria produced. This combination of high temperatures and higher chlorine levels are not considered advisable for children under 8. Children under 12 must be supervised at all times when using these facilities. (ISRM Guidelines)
Why are no under 8's in the Sauna/Steam?
The Sauna/Steam room are 40 degrees + and children cannot regulate their body temperatures like adults can, therefore they are not advised to use. Children under 12 must be supervised at all times when using these facilities. (ISRM Guidelines)
Why are no under 16's allowed in without an adult? The pool is an unmanned therefore adult supervision is required at all times
Why no children after 7.30pm Monday – Thursday? It allows for some adult only time.
