  2. First impressions....

    “As I visited this sauna for only the first time yesterday, I thought that I would pass on some comments here which might be useful to others considering taking that first step, too. Note that I have limited experience of other saunas in the UK, so I will not be making comparisons with other venues.

    The admission price is £16, which is clearly not cheap, but it is a quality establishment, clean, large and with numerous variety and facilities - something for everyone, I would say. The staff are pleasant and co-operative and there is a friendly feel to the place. There is a decently-sized, deep pool, a hot (well, warm!) tub, a dry sauna and a steam room each with enough space for over a dozen people, as well as showers, a locker room etc..

    For those going there for action there are a number of smaller cubicles or rooms with beds, half a dozen glory holes and a dark room - not that anybody seemed to object to activity in the other areas as well - several screens with films, and a room signposted 'The Dungeon' (which was empty when I visited it!)

    There were a wide range of ages and types there yesterday - some bolder, some shyer - with a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. As a first timer I did not feel like an 'outsider' - I was neither ignored nor pestered but treated with respect.

    I would have no hesitation recommending this place to guys of any age and type - as long as you can afford £16. If you want to cover yourself up with your towel and stick to the sauna and pool you can; alternatively, if you are looking for some 'fun' you will be able to find it, too. I plan to return and try out some of the 'Events' nights, too, such as 'Dare to Bare' (Wednesdays), Bear night (the third Saturday each month)and Tranny night (Fridays).“

  3. Friendly and clean

    “I visited the sauna today 20th August 2017. The entrance fee has gone up to £16.00 now. The staff were very friendly. The place looked clean from what I saw.

    The pool was nice and cool but the steam room was to hot for me. A Lot of areas dark lit. Not a lot of action today, mainly older guys with large bellys. Most of the guys were just wondering from room to room. It was though everyone was nervous not only me. I will try and go back on a different day to see if there are any fitter looking guys.“

  4. Regular, monthly

    “This place has really gone downhill lately.
    Visited 8th Aug. Steam rooms not working. The cleanliness has been poor for some time. Flooded dirty toilets. Taps not working. Showers not working properly. Wet floors.
    Disinterested staff. “

  7. Every year again.

    “I´m from Germany and I always spend my holidays in England after Easter. I have a good friend over there and he introduced me into the Greenhouse Sauna. It´s the best Sauna I know and now when I go to the bears sauna on the 3rd Saturday in a month it´s even better. The staff is very friendly and it´s so easy to get in contact with other men. I don´t know if it´s the Tourist Bonus or just the friendly English mentality. The only thing I have to complain about is the cleanliness in some parts of the sauna and the fact that nobody fills up the Kleenex and the disinfection in the cabins. And some of the mattresses are very old. But to be honest, when you are there and really horny, it doesn´t really matter. ;-) Greetings from Würzburg in Germany, Daniel. See you in one week.“

  8. Disastrous 'regressive' renovation.

    “Used to be my favourite leisure facility, but current management hasn't a clue how to renovate and return this place to it's hey day of 10 years back when it was HEAVING with all ages, and nice respectable people too. Then, it was cleaner, entrance fee was affordable for all income brackets £10-£12 max …. there were PLENTY of lockable PRIVATE cabins(not everyone wants others watching or interrupting their fun) …. cabins with enough room to lie down …. none of this water sports/dungeons, t-girls and glory holes everywhere rubbish that attracts the more extreme end of the gay scene who are not so interested in safe action or the fact this is supposed to be a health spa ….. and subsequently scares away the ordinary guys who used to frequent the gay scene in large numbers before it turned into something too extreme for their tastes.
    This place still has a great pool, friendly staff, secure parking, ok bar and restaurant meals, ok cinema, ok jacuzzi (which should work on a motion sensor like it did before) …. it just needs to get back to basics, be well maintained ….. and above all, cleaned more regularly …. drop the price to <£12 … then the clientelle, of all ages, and all walks of life will feel more comfortable and have a space they can truly RELAX in.“

  10. Visited Feb 27, 2017

    “Dismayed that I was charged £14 to enter what was basically a building site. On entry I was told of 'some' work going on but your main cruising floor was practically closed, cold, noisy and workmen walking around.

    They should either close the venue or DO NOT charge the full £14 entry. By doing so they showed a complete disregard for their clients.

    I stayed no longer than 10 minutes and when asked for a refund was told to go online.“

  11. JEFF

    “Went for the first time Saturday. Free parking.Found the staff polite and professional and facilities to be perfectly clean (saw a member of staff checking/cleaning various areas). The place isnt big - its massive! After 4 hours I was starting to get my bearings. The heated pool is great and a good size. The roof-top terrace is fantastic, well sheltered and pleasent even for October. Some old negative reviews concerned me, however the place has had some major refurb, I will soon be returning. JEFF“

  13. My first visit to Greenroom

    “This was my first visit to Greenroom and the reception guys were very helpful and explained everything.
    I was visiting on a Wednesday afternoon which was a dare to bare day, so stripped down and went totally naked into the main club
    Very new to all of this so still finding my feet on meeting and possible liaisons however I found the sauna and made myself at home, still feels a little funny to sit totally naked but heart was beating and felt naughty but fun.
    People came and went and found myself chatting with a guy who like myself had travelled a fair distance for some evening fun, he escorted me around the club and I did become the centre of attention in the darker cruising rooms.
    I did like the mix of video rooms with a mix of scenarios which I did find very assisting.
    Generally I left in the late evening having had a thoroughly enjoyable time and very weak kneed
    I was very impressed with the club and had a fantastic time, will be visiting again on a Friday when they have TS days, hope to meet more lovely guys next time.“

  14. Just the job

    “First visit yesterday. Great range of facilities, catering to all tastes. Had fun just wandering round and even then I'm not sure I visited every part. Spotlessly clean (can't understand complaints about this) but the good filthy atmosphere we all crave. Plenty of guys late morning. Excellent videos and surprised they don't mention these on website. Can strongly recommend.“

  16. Ex semi regular visitor

    “Went to the Greenhouse today and it will be my last visit.
    Jacuzzi not working again.
    Apoligising for redecorating for November & December and still going on
    Most of the privates rooms and cruising areas now gone
    No newspapers
    No mints
    Downstairs toilets beside changing area not in use and the some of the others broken
    They think that new fancy lighting will make it better. Should concentrate more on getting the area decorated and facilities working. Shame I wont be back to check“

  17. Update to previous review

    “Update to previous review, changes in staff have made a huge difference, all good now.
    Toilets are getting cleaned properly now, too. Far better than it was, but why is the carpark full, when the club is quiet? They need to address this, as all these cars cannot belong to customers ???“

  18. Ex Regular visitor

    “Tgirls and admirers, Fridays. Half the staff friendly, and good fun, half resentful, surly, unhelpful.
    Best take your own toilet paper, hand towels and soap, because its rarely topped up. Strong shoes for the toilets, as you will be wading through some nasty stuff, assuming toilets are working. Nice sunbathing area, pool, but check whats in it before getting in. Used to be a regular, but cleanliness, and drunks, weirdo's have ruined it.“
