Travel Gay Reviews of MenfriendsLeave Review

  1. K Kerry

    “I went there for my first time on Saturday 14th May and he was reluctant to give me my gold card discount was asked what three dollars. Because of that not sure if I go back, not many men there at all seems if you go by yourself you on the outer.“

  2. J James
    Younger met older ...tinder first date

    “I allllways dreamed of such a place ...met an older guy (I love older men ) he took me there to show me he wants me and long story short... I love this place 10/10.“

  3. I Ian
    Well designed, clean and comfortable

    “For a town the size of Christchurch, it is a surprise to find such a well-built, well-maintained and clean facility. On the design side, softer lighting in the spa, sauna and shower area would be more congenial. The steam room, however, is excellent. The sex shop has a terrific array of toys and the free tea and coffee a welcome touch. I was not impressed, however, at being asked to leave my bag behind the counter. Like all gay saunas around the world, they are struggling to remain relevant to the younger generation. The entry fee doesn't help. I would suggest some improvements along the German model. A lower entry price and the addition of a focal bar, cafe and restaurant for the up sell. Recommended nonetheless.“

  4. T Tom

    “I visited this place and enjoyed it very much. Very nice venue with friendly men to be with. Loved getting naked there.“

  5. J John
    No complaints

    “What a great place. I travel extensively so was rather surprised to find a sauna of this quality in such a small city; this venue would fit comfortably anywhere in the world. The facilities are like new and the staff very helpful. I am pleased I made the time to visit Menfriends and recommend that others do too.“
