“This is Bristol’s original sauna - The Cottage Sauna, currently called the Village Sauna on its web site and “The Sauna” over its door. I used to regularly go to here until Elite Retreat opened nearby. Facilities here are not bad although it is dirty and neglected, but the worse thing I have deduced over the years which really winds me up is that the manager operates an unwritten rule that the steam room, despite being one of the advertised facilities, will not be switched on unless there are at least (I have unofficially been told by staff members) 8 customers in the place. Every time I went, I would make appoint of asking for it to be switched on, on the grounds that it this is reasonable, since it is one of the services that my entry fee is paying for, and - I wanted to use it! Sometimes it was then switched on. Just as often it would be “forgotten” or “not working”. I have been to about 40 different gay saunas all over the world, and every other one of them had its steam room operating all the time. The last time I went to the village sauna I politely asked if the steam room could be switched on. Elite Retreat was just about to open, so at this point I vowed I would never return to the Village Sauna.“

Great friendly sauna.
“Great friendly sauna with nice staff. Good facilities and a good range of guys from different ages & body types. When I went there on the weekend it was packed with some hot blokes.“
