We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at The Oriel – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: The Oriel Country Hotel and Spa, St. Asaph
Parking: Free parking is available at the hotel.  The Leisure club and pool is located on the right hand side, towards the back of the hotel with parking close to the Spa entrance for your convenience.

Essential information:

Car seats are welcome in the leisure club, however please leave buggies in the car as the pool is only a short distance from the car park. Should you like to dine in the restaurant before or after your class, there is plenty of space for buggies within the main building.

The changing rooms are small in size, so please leave plenty of time for changing into swimming attire.  Ideally bring a changing mat for clothing babies and toddlers. We encouraged you to change babies on the pool side sun loungers if the changing rooms are busy after your class has finished. Showers are available in the changing rooms. There is also a disabled shower and changing room which is available for our customers to use.  Importantly, please store all clothes and belongings in the lockers provided. 

A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
