Reviews for `Lough Allen Hotel & Spa`

Teresa scored 5 / 5 on 29/10/2019

We stay in The Lough Allen quite often and love it. It is set in a beautiful location and the hotel itself is very clean with excellent facilities and it is especially child/family friendly although this should not deter couples from staying as everyone is equally catered for. While we love the location, hotel and food Lough Allen's greatest asset by far is the staff who are always friendly, welcoming and will always go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best it can be. looking forward to staying many more times.

We had a lovely 2 night stay, from start to finish was very good. Prompt checking in to checking out. Had dinner in the bar both nights & was enjoyable if a little expensive. Swimming pool was very good but had outdoor Jacuzzi and it was raining so didn't get to try it out. Nice big room with comfortable beds & adequate bathroom. We would definitely return to this hotel


Sarah scored 4 / 5 on 23/06/2019

We stayed 2 nights midweek with our two young children 4yrs & 11months...we thought we would be in a family room but were given a 2 bedroom apt which was very spacious...the only thing missing was a small fridge which wud be handy for babys milk etc. My only negative were the thin walls! The noise coming from the apt above us was bad...especially with young children sleeping but the lady on reception was very helpful and sorted it straight away. The views are gorgeous and there are great facilities for kids....the playroom for smaller children...games room and our favourite...the pool! Food was good in the bistro and we took a short drive to Glencar waterfall which was beautiful! Good selection at breakfast and staff are very friendly...all in all...a nice couple of days away...

Excellent service and nice staff, food was top class in the bar restaurant and the buffet at breakfast was well stocked.


Maria scored 5 / 5 on 19/03/2019

We had an amazing stay, we stayed for 2nights and had our two children with us aged 10 and 4 there was things for them both to do, the staff could not of been more help full they up graded our room to a larger family room and if they had an apartment free for the 2 night they were going to give us that, we were more than happy with our room. We ate in the bar on the first night and as a family of 4 with 2 starters and 4 mains it was very reasonable at under €60. I would highly recommend this hotel to young, old and families. We will definitely be back

Amazing hotel, The staff were very nice and polite, the food was Delicious, very clean hotel everything was provided for us in the rooms, lovely and clean pool area towels provided, out door Jacuzzi straight from the pool, sauna and steam room. small games room on the lower floor didnt know about until last day but kids didn't need it. The view from the hotel was fabulous, mountains on one side and the lough view on the other. well wort a visiting stay we cant wait to go back again.


Darren scored 5 / 5 on 24/07/2018

Great location for family break .. plenty to do for kids with playground, swimming pool facilities whilst also offering kids club from 6pm til 10 which allows parents to unwind for those few hours by maybe having some dinner or few drinks in bar or restaurant on site. The hotel is also very centrally located to avail of local attractions such as arigna mines, tullyboy farm, cavan & leitrim railway, parke's castle and glencar waterfall to name but a few. Finally cannot complete any review without mentioning the exceptionally helpful and friendly staff who are an absolute credit the hotel and go a long way to making this a very enjoyable family experience. Thanks to all

Lorraine scored 4 / 5 on 02/06/2018

We really enjoyed our stay, room, staff and pool were all excellent. Although the breakfast was good and the staff were great, it would be 100% better if the cold products were actually in a chiller, and if the hot vegetarian products (ie potatoes, hash browns, beans) were kept with each other rather than beside meat products!


Siobh scored 3 / 5 on 20/03/2018

The stay was quite nice, although, the food was not good. It served carvery vegetables with the dinner and the wine was extremely over priced (27 euro) for possible an 8 euro bottle of wine. The food was very over priced. Also, the water for the shower and bath was luke warm. The swimming facilities were good and the staff were nice.

Jill scored 5 / 5 on 11/10/2017

A great hotel in a lovely location. We really enjoyed the weekend break in Drumshanbo, there's so much to do in the area. From just outside the hotel grounds, we walked along the canal to the new floating boardwalk on acres lake. And then we continued on along the canal walk the whole way to Leitrim Village. It took about 2 and a half hours in total. Just fabulous. The hotel was excellent value for the 2 nights b&b. Looking forward to our next visit already.


Pauline scored 4 / 5 on 10/10/2017

Perfect hotel for a very quiet get away. Lovely walking trails, all accessible from the hotel. Leisure centre is lovely too, they have an outdoor Jacuzzi but unfortunately it was out of order on our visit. Food in the bar is grand if you are happy with burgers and chips and that kind of thing, they do that extremely well :) The restaurant food was much healthier option and really good portions and fresh food. The breakfast was good, plenty to choose from to include a healthy option if required. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is huge, the main part is in good condition but the extended areas could do with a bit of maintenance. Overall a very peaceful place, perfect getaway, on the shore of a beautiful lough which I'm sure is full of life in the Summer months, If you just want to relax and unwind with the option of walking or bike ride I would highly recommend this hotel and location. It was October when we ventured up so we were very happy to just relax, walk, sleep and eat :)

lovely Hotel and staff


Sinead scored 5 / 5 on 20/09/2017

Everything exceeded our expectations. Greeted with a warm welcome. No family rooms available to our complete joy we received two apartments, it made the stay all that bit more comfortable. Amazing views and walks around the area. We ate in the bar and the food was lovely, great barman made us very welcome too. Our waiter that evening went above his job looking after us and had a word for young and old. He even sang happy birthday while talking out the cake to my dad for the laugh, great addition to the hotel. Swimming pool was lovely and warm and clean albeit a bit small, hot tub great too. Playground and pool tables a great addition to amuse kids although pool table not allowed to be used after 9. Suggest a better area for those games to allow use at least until 10 as they are a big asset. Thoroughly enjoyed by all and can't believe I didn't know about this hiding gem, we will be back. Thanks


Ray scored 4 / 5 on 06/09/2017

I did'nt give this hotel top rating because in my opinion the noise volume in the bar with two monster televisions facing each other was excessive. By the way, I'm deaf and even with my hearing aids switched off and acting as ear plugs, it was still too loud for me. Ray


Michelle scored 3 / 5 on 06/09/2017

Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised to be offered the choice of a room or a 2 bed apartment, we took the 2 apartment which was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a 3 course meal and a few drinks in the bar which was all very nice. Breakfast was good too, a good selection of hot or cold options on offer. All of the staff were very warm and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

Spacious rooms, breakfast was super. Furniture and carpets need an upgrade.


Pat scored 2 / 5 on 03/08/2017

Very nice hotel, good clean rooms and lovely food. My main gripes are that there was no BBC 1 in either of the rooms I booked and that the wifi was dredful. I realise that generally wifi is bad in Leitrim but a large hotel should have something better than the poor quality we endured. I also found the receptionist to be quite glib when dealing with my complaints. Overall about 2.5 stars.


Gerry scored 4 / 5 on 29/07/2017

Really enjoyed our stay. Good food. Staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Will definitely go back.


Kirstyf55 scored 4 / 5 on 18/07/2017

Spent a lovely 2 nights at the hotel. Ate at the bar both nights and food was really nice and the staff were more than helpful, they also made a lot of effort with my 10 month old baby which was nice. Went to the pool both days and It's great, big pool with sauna and steam room and the out door hot tub was fantastic with a wonderful view. The rooms themselves are a bit dated, especially the television but they were clean and the beds were comfy, got a great nights sleep both nights. Got breakfast to the room on both mornings which was only a small charge of €5 per morning. Breakfast was lovely, arrived on time and was nice and hot. Would def visit again, maybe when my baby is a bit older and can attend the kids club which is on every evening and a great idea for parents to have some alone time.

Excellent family hotel. Staff very helpful. Had a toddler with us and they were very accommodating. Food was excellent in the Bar. Breakfast was very nice but could be better organized. Will return again


Fed28 scored 2 / 5 on 04/07/2017

Hotel was average at best. Rooms were OK, nothing special. Could barely get a drip of hot water from the shower the whole weekend which was highly frustrating. Advised reception who said they would send up maintenance (probably did, we were out most of the day), but didn't help at all. Breakfast was grand, but food service in the bar was surprisingly slow considering it was during the day, pretty empty, and we only ordered two desserts. Hotel is also in the middle of nowhere really, costed us e20 to carrick-on-shannon in a taxi, and e26 back. Hot tub outside was a nice tough, really enjoyed that. And my partner got a massage in the spa which she really enjoyed. Overall, would have been pretty annoyed if I paid full price, and can see why they've got to use deal sites to fill rooms.


Snowgul scored 4 / 5 on 01/06/2017

This is my second time with my family in hotel. Big family suite was great. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. The bar food was also good although 19.50 euro for fish catch of the day was a bit steep seeing as it was a special. 13.95euro was reasonable for the other main courses. Swimming pool was also very good. Will definitely go back again. Many thanks Lough allen


Caolan scored 5 / 5 on 23/05/2017

I stayed here with family which included toddlers and children.

Just back from a 2 night stay in Lough Allen Hotel, can I fault it, NO.

Got a great offer through 3+ Breaks, will definitely be going back.

The Lough Allen hotel is a fantastic hotel. We have been a few times and will definately go back. The amenities for the children are brilliant and the pool is so clean.

A lovely hotel with a lovely staff! Service a bit slow in the bar for food but it was a busy night! Music was great. We will be back.


Gerry scored 5 / 5 on 28/03/2017

Our stay at the Lough Allen Hotel was very pleasant. We originally booked for one night ( Saturday 25th March) but were offered a complimentary stay for an additional night without breakfast. This was a wonderful offer and we couldn't resist taking it up. On Saturday night we had a lovely meal in the Restaurant. The food was superb and service excellent. We also had a number of drinks in the bar prior to after diner which we enjoyed immensely. The music was also first class. The breakfast on Sunday morning was superb and set us up for the remainder of the day. We didn't get an opportunity of using the leisure centre because we left after Breakfast to head to Omagh to a football match. Sadly we had to leave very early on Monday morning as I had to go to work. In summary this was a lovely experience and I enjoyed every moment of it. Since returning to work I have told many people of your excellent facility and I am quite sure some of them will book with you at as future date.

Reviewer69178640 scored 3 / 5 on 08/10/2016

The hotel was nice, clean and the staff friendly. the food in the Bar and at breakfast (especially the hot food) was disappointing , the choice for the price was poor.


Mark scored 4 / 5 on 27/09/2016

Stayed 2 nights for a family weekend away. Very happy with the hotel. Good value for money, clean and friendly staff. The bar food was poor (wafer thin over cooked steak sandwich etc). Also the hot tub was unavailable/out of service. Other than that a very nice hotel in a beautiful location.


Ronan scored 2 / 5 on 23/09/2016

Friendly staff was the best thing about this hotel. The dinner was not nice. Chunky chips were tasteless and overcooked. Sirloin steak was overcooked even though I asked for medium to well done. The changing rooms were dirty and a mouldy towel was on one of the benches in the male changing rooms. Was told that swimming hats were compulsory and bought them - however the swimming pool had many people without hats. Thankfully I was refunded the money when I complained. Overall feel I did not get value for money.


Lisa scored 1 / 5 on 20/09/2016

first day we arrived they got our booking wrong when we told them they gave us a apartment and when we went to bed that night there was blood on the sheet and we said it at the desk the next morning and they said that they would send in house keeping then the second night the boiler was making awful noises all night we rang the front desk and the night porter said to turn off the boiler we did this and the noise still continued would never stay here again

We will definitely return. Thanks to all the staff, you're doing a fantastic job


Patricia scored 4 / 5 on 05/05/2016

We had a 2 night stay at the Lough Allen Hotel. The staff were friendly, food was delicious and the leisure facilities of the pool and outdoor hot-tub were fantastic. The only couple of things I would say is that there is no internet / wi-fi in the bedrooms.....only accessible in the foyer and bar/restaurant . The bathroom fan was not workkng on arrival and i was promised that it would b fixed the next morning wothout delay ....I had asked twice again but.....we checked out on the Sunday and it wasn't looked at all , little disappointing ! Overall very enjoyable stay .


Mum scored 2 / 5 on 29/03/2016

Overall we were not impressed with this hotel. Even though we booked a family room we were given an apartment which involved having to walk outside to get to and from the main hotel, which might be fine in the summer, but not in the wind and pelting rain. The apartment itself was in need of a face lift, threadbare carpets, shower head broken. There were dirty clothes from a previous occupant left in the one of the bedside lockers which makes you wonder about the standard of cleaning. The hotel pool was small, with only a tiny children's area and no life guard. There seemed to be no rules for using the pool like you see in other hotels. It was a busy weekend, so there was complete chaos in the pool, with kids running, jumping in and using all sorts of inflatables. The changing rooms were tiny and very uncomfortable for a parent with small children. On the plus side, the food was reasonably good in the bar and the breakfast was good. Get there early though, as the restaurant isn't huge and there were long waits to be seated. We wouldn't return.


Odtraveller scored 4 / 5 on 26/01/2016

Nice Hotel, easy to find. the Entrance lane was a bit bumpy but there's a few places using it so that's understandable. The Hotel was clean and neat with nice grounds. Reception was efficient but weren't clear at first what rate we were on. This was resolved easily with no fuss. The room was nice and clean and airy. The bed was smaller than king size but was comfortable. plenty of channels on the TV. Bathroom nice and clean with no annoying extractor fan, big plus point. The food in the restaurant was excellent, no other word for it. Best we've had in any of the Lidl breaks hotels. Highly recommended. Service was good and breakfast in the morning was nice too. However no scrambled eggs in the servery which was disappointing. Only fried eggs on offer. There was mushrooms which were nice with black and white puddings. Overall a very nice hotel with a good bar in a great location.

First impressions on arrival in Reception, there was music blaring - not a relaxing ambiance. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious. Location excellent. A family friendly hotel, but not ideal for couples - children still in the bar after midnight. Restaurant food very good but it was too noisy to be a relaxing evening meal. Children in the restaurant until late...

Lough Allen Hotel & Spa is set in a stunning landscape , on the edge of the lake and surrounded by mountains. Its a great place for a get away break, lovely walks and lots of places to visit locally, one very good being the Arigna Coal mine experience, the view from the top of the hill alone is worth going for. The hotel is great , lovely staff, spotless, good food , leisure centre, great bar which had entertainment on , a great singer when we were there onTthursday night, it has a children's club also and is a great place for families, lots of room for children to run around and play football outside, very child friendly, would highly recommend it.

Am just back from a fab weekend in Lough Allen Hotel. From the moment you enter the hotel in you are met with really friendly staff especially the receptionist that checked you in on Friday 5th June (sorry I can't remember her name but she was really friendly and welcoming). The room we had was on 3rd floor overlooking Lough Allen - really clean, spacious room - with beautiful views and more importantly - a quiet room. For a hotel that is so busy you do not hear any noise. The bar staff and restaurant staff were also very friendly and the food in both bar and restaurant were top notch. As was the entertainment on the 2 nights we were there. Would definitely return to Lough Allen and will recommend Lough Allen to all my friends. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Máire Bonner

Staff very helpful and friendly, food good. The outside could do with some TLC i.e. lick of paint, grass cut, the inside of the hotel was lovely and clean. We had a great view from our room. Leisure centre was good however we could not use the outside hot tub, weather was so cold. We availed of a spa treatment that we enjoyed and there was great value e.g. two head shoulder and neck massage €49 for two. Defo worth a visit and lidl breaks great value

The hotel was beautiful and in a lovely area. Rooms very spacious and very clean. The hotel staff were really nice and very helpful. The bar food and the restaurant were both beautiful food. The pool was very good and children really enjoyed it. This was a very good hotel and i would return for another weekend break. Not a lot in Drumshanbo, Leitrim but you will find shops and something for the children to do in Carrick-on-Shannon. Tyrone Family

This was one of the better special deals that we have availed of as a family. The good points, great location, nice village, EXCELLENT food, staff very friendly, got upgraded to a 2 bed suite, pool was very good. The bad points, breakfast staff were more friendly and attentive than evening staff in the restaurant; the tv in the room was antiquated with only two working channel. The hotel looked much better inside than outside - first impressions not great - pot-holed driveway, the front door and much of the woodwork badly need a lick of paint. Overall though we felt it was very good value and we would return.

The Hotel was lovely, the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. As the night went on the barman increased the price of two drinks by a euro a round till it was said to him, he said he made a mistake.


Sils scored 5 / 5 on 14/01/2015

Stayed in hotel for weekend in October. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was at the front of hotel but if possible try to get one at back with the beautiful view of the lough. The weekend we were there was quiet enough but I suspect it can get very busy with children on school holidays. For us the best part was the FOOD. The meal we had at the restaurant was fantastic and we would highly recommend eating there.

We stayed at the Lough Allen Hotel in October and had a lovely time, the rooms were very comfortable and clean, all the staff were very friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent, they have a good leisure centre which we made use of, we will return again in the good weather, so that we can appreciate the grounds around the Hotel

The Lough Allen hotel and spa was absolutely beautiful.. very easy to find following googles directions..Food was beautiful always well presented and good size portions.. the bar was good crac with live music over the weekend and the cocktails went down a treat :) staff was always friendly and willing to help.. our bedroom wasn't to big but was lovely and homely only thing I did not like was our bed was two singles pushed together so it felt like me and my partner were not together as with the two beds together there was a lump in the middle and was uncomfortable to lay on..my partner also noticed that the trouser iron did not work and when we got an iron&ironing board delivered it also did not work but as soon as we told reception it was sorted straight away.. but other than that we had a brilliant time away celebrating our first anniversary and would consider going back..


Sargens scored 4 / 5 on 04/10/2014

Really nice hotel, great location, very comfortable and spacious rooms. We enjoyed particularly the food that was particularly good and tasty (even the veggies!!). Friendly staff in the restaurant, the pub, and also the cleaners. Reccomended location for visiting Sligo, Enniskillen, and the lake district.


Ann scored 2 / 5 on 23/09/2014

My husband and I booked in for three nights but only stayed two. The staff were friendly and the room spotless however the hotel lacked atmosphere. The couches in the lobby were cheap and tatty and did not give a good first impression. The first thing you saw when you went into the bar was a HB ice cream fridge. The public areas could do with a make over to take the bleak look off the place both inside and out. We wanted to watch the All Ireland camogie match. It wasn't on in the bar and the TV in our room was antiquated and we couldn't adjusted the contrast/brightness. The food in the Rushes Restaurant was terrible. We were booked in for B&B and Evening meal and there was a €5 surcharge for the neck of Lamb. The child size portion of meat was lying of a huge mound of mash and covered in a gravy, the veg were wilted and swimming in butter. The steak (also a surcharge) was accompanied by a pepper sauce however this was the same "gravy" that came with the lamb. It was a very disappointing meal,. The breakfast was excellent by comparison. There is no doubt that the community in Drumshambo have done a lot to enhance their surroundings and attract visitors to the area. All amenities, attractions and events were very well signposted and highlighted. The visit to Arigna was excellent as was the weather. Leitrim is not a tourist mecca but it has a lot to offer and well worth a visit for walking, fishing, sightseeing, gdod pubs and friendly people. Ann.

I would highly recommend this hotel, at this time of year, to family's with young children, parents said kids club great. As a mature couple, we would return again but at a less busy time. Great buzz around hotel, even though it was raining most of weekend. Lovely staff, good food, clean and fresh room, what's not to like. Visit to Arigna Mines a must.

Susan scored 5 / 5 on 29/07/2014

My partner and I booked this hotel very last minute. We got an amazing deal for one night with dinner and breakfast. The whole experience was amazing. The staff are so helpful and courteous, from meeting and greeting, to bar staff and leisure centre staff. Each member of staff I came into contact with was extremely pleasant to deal with. The food for the dinner was a three course meal and each course was absolutely amazing. Complements to the chef!! We stayed in the hotel that evening for drinks and the entertainment was great. Nice atmosphere in the bar. The hotel is suitable for all people from couples or families as it is very child friendly. We did engage in the horse riding which is available right beside the complex and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room in the hotel is nice and spacious. Can't say I would fault anything. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone for a break away.

Lough Allen Hotel has a wonderful location. Would have loved a room with a lough view and a balcony but not that lucky this time.. This hotel is very child friendly and ideal for young families but still a very enjoyable place to stay for a couple in late fifties. Bedrooms clean and tidy but could do with a makeover. Staff very friendly and food was tasty. I asked for a medium rare steak and got a well done steak covered with pepper sauce. I would happily return to this hotel. Hot tub outside was also a great idea.

Ciaran scored 3 / 5 on 06/07/2014

The hotel was easy to find and offered great food and service. The accommodation was spacious although in being given a Queen size bed we discovered that it was two single beds placed together. We discovered on checking out that we could have changed rooms had we requested. Our deal included two courses for every night. This was not made clear to us on our first night. The second night we were given a different menu. We had three courses. The staff advised us that our meal deal would be discounted by reception - the restaurant staff did not know the deal and said there was different deals. We also made use of the excellant spa faciliaties and had two treatments including lunch for €69 each. Confusion arose on checkout when our total bill given was €650 when the actual bill was €450. Time was spent working out exactly what we had signed for. A good hotel for family and for those with children. Personally because of the confusion regarding the bill I'm unsure I would use this hotel again.

Reviewer96165344 scored 5 / 5 on 20/04/2014

We, an elderly couple,spent four nights D.B.& B in the Lough Allen hotel in April.this year.It was a first visit to this very picturesque county.The hotel,situated on the lake shore, is a delight.The foyer is large, open and bright. The welcome was exceptionally warm and we were shown to our room immediately.On further inspection, we found a large airy bedroom facing the lake. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletries.The shower head had a powerful spray. The food was excellent with,again, more than helpful service, at all times. The only criticism we would make is that the television was antiquated and with very poor picture quality. We really enjoyed our stay in this clean,friendly hotel. I would give this hotel a star rating 5.

This is a very nice hotel for a getaway its rooms are comfortable and if situated to the rear have a fantastic view of the lake. The staff were friendly and the hotel itself was very well kept. I do think more singage is needed to find the hotel and possibly a tidy up of the drive way as you enter. I would defenitley return here and especially with family as it had a good swimming pool and an outdoor playgroungd for kids.


Jaybo scored 3 / 5 on 07/08/2013

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights 2nd to 5th August and were overall quite happy with our stay. This hotel has one very big asset, its staff. They are the most friendly and helpful people I have ever met. There was a few exceptions but nothing to be unduly worried about. The food in the bar was a bit pricey with not enough variety and I was disappointed to be served what was obviously frozen skinny chips the type you get in McDonald's but not nearly as tasty. The restaurant also only offered a limited menu and I was confused over the pricing. Almost every item on the Al la Carte menu had a supplement. Why not just print the price as it is. Why the need for supplements in the first place. Any way this confusion led me to eat elsewhere. The hotel itself could do with a good freshen up as it seems a bit jaded looking.

The location is beautiful but the hotel is very cold. Restaurant was freezing cold in the morning and in the evening. We were having our meals and very shaking with cold. As a part of the deal we got a family room which actually was a separate apartment and we had to leave the hotel building to get to our room. We arrived on Fri around 4 pm and our suite was so cold!!! no heat on except for the small electric heaters in 2 bedrooms that were so far away for the living room!!! When we complained at the reception we got a fan heater but we wanted to move the room and even pay supplement as we had 2 small kids with us but the hotel was fully booked so couldn`t do anything. The next morning (Sat) our apartment was nice and warm just the way we would like it at the arrival. Didnt even use the swimming pool as it was a cold weekend and going outside with wet head just put us off. In the bar we waited 15 mins for soup and 25 mins for 2 coffees and 1 dessert and 1 ice cream. Staff didnt seem to be busy as restaurant was closed at that time and bar was nearly empty. Not really nice experience. Wouldnt really recommend for familys.

We stayed at the Lough Allen Hotel & Spa for an anniversary break and I can't speak highly enough of the hotel and the staff.

Regret not eating their both nights. I would highly recommend for a stay.

We booked dinner in the hotel resteraunt. we had the set menu which offered lots of variety and was excellent. we also liked the leisure centre facilities and the hot tub. entertainment in the bar that evening which was well supported. breakfast was the usual full irish with smoked salmon fresh fruit etc. Overall the most stricking thing about Lough Allen hotel is the staff courtesy and the food. we hope to return for more.

a wonderful location, with the view from our room simply delightful. The rooms are a little dated and bizarrely we were given an access room with four beds The bar and restaurant are lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had dinner in the hotel one evening and it was top notch We were more than surprised however to find when going for a swim that there was no lifeguard on duty. The pool was full of children playing pool football crossing into the swim lanes which made it impossible to enjoy a swim apart from the fact that it was dangerous.
