Location:  66 Trinity Street, Hanley, Staffordshire ST1 5NB

Parking & Directions: Parking is available on the Car Park below The Quality Hotel (just before it on the left hand side if you are driving up the hill into town). You do not need to pay for parking for the duration of your swimming lesson, however in order to ensure that you don’t get a parking ticket, you must remember to enter your car registration details into the Key Pad at the Health Club reception every week.  Please note that parking is for a MAX 3 Hours and tickets issued can’t be revoked by The Hotel as they do not administer the car park.

Pool Location: The pool is found in the Health Club.

  • You may enter the hotel from the lower entrance by the car park and go straight through the first set of double doors.       
  • You may either walk up the steps in front of you or take the lift to your right which takes you up to the main reception.
  • At the main reception turn left down the corridor and continue along this past the function rooms following the signs to the Health Club.
  • At the end of the corridor turn left and then right immediately through another set of double doors.  The pool is further down the corridor on the left hand side.
  • Please remove all shoes before entering the pool area.

Essential Information:

  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly Nappy Wraps & 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?
  • All nappies and swim nappies must be taken home and not left at the pool. Nappy bags are provided by your Puddle Ducks Teacher, if needed.
