Sauna from Hell
“This is an absolutely VILE place that has long since passed it's best. The general staff attitude is, as long as we have your money, you can get stuffed. Very overpriced for what it offers and what you get. It's long overdue for a makeover, in fact it's long overdue for a decent coat of paint, but that seems to have skipped Chris's attention somewhere. The showers are cold and run for about 3 seconds per push, the soap is the cheapest they could find and doesn't even manage a lather.“

Some great times there!
“Friendly place. Could do with a cool private Play room. Recently revamped sauna and jacuzzi. If you are a first timer, you will be treated well - no pressure.“

“Not slit there for your money really. Not the cleanest place. Could do with a face lift really .“

first visit as a bi curious
“My first visit to a gay sauna, good parking though from the window in the front it seemed to be anything but a gay sauna including sports injuries - anyone passing would think its a health club. Nearly turned round but persevered friendly reception got towel and entered.
Its quite small, few there (10:30am) nothing much happening in the communal areas or Jacuzzi so went in the steam room to find a guy laying down... but by this time I was feeling breathless and ill from the steamy (literally) atmosphere and had to get out. Shame we could have had a lot of fun.“
