We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at the Leonardo Hotel – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful.
Free parking is available under the hotel and round the back. If you park in this carpark, you will need to obtain a barrier code from reception on your way out after your class. There are local car parks at the front of the hotel that have a charge.
Enter the hotel reception and the leisure area is to the left of reception. Puddle Ducks will be sign posted.
