  1. much improved since refurbishment

    “Nov 17 - a vast improvement since some money has been spent on updating the facilities - new jacuzzi for example. All seemed very clean but it is rather bizarre that there are so many condoms everywhere but complete lack of lube (there seems to be a single sachet provided in each locker but more is needed!). Much better pricing policy just needs more men to come back and give it a try again. Oh, and a personal plea, bring back a glory hole or two - that would make it perfect venue for us!“

  2. Very empty

    “Visited Tuesday and Wednesday: £10 entrance. Closes at 8.00 pm or 10 pm. Predominantly older guys. Charge you £1 if you want to go out and come back.“

  3. NO facilities!

    “Been here 4 times, twice before the revamp.

    Since revamp, no jacuzzi, no steam room and internet that works when it wants. And why have reception upstairs where it over looks the jacuzzi (when it works) so the staff can see everything that goes off? Good points, friendly staff and clean. Although never any lube, plenty of condoms. Do not take notice of the board outside, it is NOT open 24 hours during the week.....“

  5. Does the job

    “Went with a friend for my first ever sauna experience the other week. Like most guys on their first time I was nervous on what it would be like, thankfully I had nothing to worry about. The staff were great and easy to have a laugh with.

    The hot sauna was great and clean, the rest of the club cleanliness wise was okay but could do with a bit of a tlc.

    There were a range of guys there to which was good, although I did find it odd that no body talked to each other, it was all in eye contact whether you got with someone or not.

    Over all I'll probably be back, although I'd like to see the cabin with the sling in, have a lock put on the door that works before I next visit. Unwanted guests aren't always fun.“

  7. Great Sauna

    “Went to this Sauna on Saturday 29-10-'16, and I must say I was very impressed with the facilities and cleanliness of the place.

    Excellent :- Changing area, Jacuzzi, Steam room & Dry Sauna. Infact spotlessly clean throughout and all fully functioning. Staff also very helpful. Will go again when in Manchester next (I live in Blackpool).“

  9. Nice

    “Went 12/02/2016 my first time pressed buzzer on entry, made my way to reception a very pleasant guy asked if I had been before I said it was my first time he explained where everything was he gave me my towel explained about the locker and I was off mmmm went to TVs room. I was surprised there was quite a few guys in sat next to one guy then went to a private room for more fun all round a very good experience it is the only one I have been to but it did what is says on the tin I wasn't expecting five star luxury but it exceeded my expectations after reading some of the reviews!!!! The lightings just right not to light or dark all round a really good experience ..“

  10. Needs a refurb

    “Truly the worst sauna I have ever been to the Jacuzzi is in a terrible state with bits missing and was cold.

    To be blunt it really needs replacing as its over 15 years old also it is as an other review stated almost empty with customers.

    I seriously think the owner of this sauna lives in fantasy land with regards to the prices they charge compared to far superior saunas in Belgium and Germany and also Birmingham UK and London especially considering how it was almost empty less than 3 people when I visited. However the staff were okay and pleasant just a shame the place is so run down.“

  11. Save your money

    “I tried it once, about 3 years ago. I've had more men in my apartment that what were in this tired old dump. It's a sad, sleazy old basement with ancient fittings.“
