February 2nd

Had a good day yesterday but it confirmed my decision to change my club. I went to my usual one for a swim:-
1. The M6 was very slow. (could go a different way but it's much longer)
2. Got to the carpark to find that there were only a couple of disabled places left & only one or two of the cars already parked had badges. This is a pet hate of mine & I've complained several times but nothing gets done except maybe occasionally the hotel staff put letters on windscreens which get thrown on the floor. (You can tell this gets me mad)
3. Only one of the Sunshowers was working. (again)
4. At 10 past 12 there was still a couple of parents with toddlers in the pool. (Adults only between 12 & 2)
5. Both cubicles with curtains (there are only 2 in the womens changing areas, 5 in the mens!) were occupied so it was a choice of using a toilet cubicle or stand & wait. I chose the latter, only to find that the cubicle was full of hair & other rubbish.
6. The M6 was almost at a standstill on the way home!
Considering this is a large hotel chain & we pay a reasonable subscription, the facilities could be better. The sad thing is, the staff are great & I've made loads of good friends with the other members.
Should I change my name to Victor Meldrew?????

At least I feel better after that little rant.

    Your money is too valuable and will be fought after! Why don't you phone 2 or 3 others, mention you are not happy with your present place and would they be prepared to give you a complimentary day pass before you decide on changing to them! Obviously mention you use the disabled facilities and would like to view theirs?!

    This way you get some free use of other facilities before you make your decision.......

    However, I don't know what your club card thingy is and if you can pick and choose where you go?

    Is it worth a try?

    good luck.

    I think you've got every right to be disgruntlled, people take advantage and don't seem bothered if it upsets anyone else and if it supposed to be a decent hotel then you would have though they could afford to keep things fixed and cleaned, makes you wonder where all the subscription money is going.
