Blue River Leisure Centre

Fancy a relaxing swim in luxurious surroundings? Perhaps you’d like to kick-start a fitness routine during your stay? Or maybe you feel like detoxing in the sauna after a night of one too many?

The Blue River Leisure Centre at the Holyrood is complimentary to all hotel guests and offers all of these facilities and more. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind during your stay and we’ve endeavoured to make your leisure experience as enjoyable as possible.

Swimming Pool
The attractive 14x8m, deck-level swimming pool at the leisure centre is fully heated and decorated in a pretty mosaic pattern. It has a separate area for kids with an 8" deep pool.

It’s perfect for an early morning swim to get you off to a good start or a relaxing splash at the end of the day. The Blue River Leisure Centre opens at 8am. Our younger guests have access only until 7pm. However the pool is open for adults until 9pm each evening.

Hot Tub and Sauna
The Blue River Leisure Centre also has a Scandinavian sauna and a Canadian hot tub with water, heated to 36 degrees. Both are a great way to wind down after a training session or a long day on the beach.

The Gym
The Blue River Leisure Centre also has a fully equipped, 30-station, air conditioned gym with treadmills, rowing machines, bikes, steppers, kayak machines and resistance equipment.

Personal Training
Need some guidance when using the gym? That’s no problem. Our in-house personal trainer - Caroline McCauley offers one-to-one training and can create a personal fitness plan to help you reach your goals.

“We take people in, teach them how to use the gym equipment and devise work-out plans tailored to their specific goals,” explains Caroline. “What’s more we’ll help to motivate them to reach their targets. It’s a great way to kick-start your fitness regime.” For more details on Caroline and what she does just click here.
