Relax

Experience the therapeutic benefits of our Turkish Baths with a steam room, three hot rooms -  tepidarium (warm), calidarium (hot) and laconium (hottest), cold plunge pool and relaxation area.

As a forerunner to the modern jacuzzi, our Aerotone will leave your body and mind refreshed and exhilarated.

Meetings

For a venue with a difference, hire our meeting room that comfortably seats up to 20 delegates. Call  0131 669 6888 or email us.

Whether you've never swum before,  just starting out or more confident in the water, we can offer coaching to support you on your swim journey. We have Beginners' sessions where you can gain confidence and learn different strokes. More confident swimmers can develop their technique and fitness at our Stroke Development classes. Adults of all ages, including those over 60 years, are welcome.  

Swimming is a fantastic life skill and one shared by our swim teachers with thousands of children every year. Our coaching programme at Portobello starts with adult and baby classes all the way to stroke development classes for confident and competent young swimmers. 

If your children enjoyed water polo at a swimming class or holiday club, why not take it a step further? Our Mini Polo classes are a fun and energetic way to develop water skills and stamina. They’re also a good alternative for older children who feel they' have outgrown swimming classes.  We follow the Scottish Swimming Mini Polo awards scheme and teach the basic skills required in the sport - passing, catching, shooting and treading water.





Facilities

We have combined modern swimming, gym and fitness facilities while retaining many original 19th century features at our seaside venue.

Our authentic, original Turkish Baths offer a totally unique experience and the perfect way to relax after a hard workout, or drop in to our café and enjoy a healthy snack.
