  1. Not as good as it used to be

    “Been going to Northwich Sauna since 2017. At first, it was terrific. The place is big, lots of features, and they provided a free buffet on some days which made it special and worth travelling to if you're not local (because this place is out in the middle of nowhere). In recent months, the place has lost some of its charm. Not all of the showers have hot water (some dont work at all), the upstairs shower room smells more like a toilet (and seems to have been used as one on several occasions), and the free buffet is gone and it's now an extra £5 for food.

    It's true, people don't go here primarily for a meal, but it's the extras like this that make an establishment stand out from the rest - especially on "event days" like the once-monthly bears and cubs day. Since 2017, I went at least once a month (sometimes as many as three times a month) because it was worth it. But now I'm less inclined to make the trip so often because it isn't as special anymore and there are other saunas much closer to home. I'll still visit, but maybe only once or twice a year now.“

    • A fact based review for readers

      “I have been going to this sauna since 2014 and it is now cleaner and more spotless than ever, it is true that the free food has gone but what would anyone expect it is 2019, and for avoidance of doubt food is £3. The showers in the building are clean and fresh so maybe the previous writer has a body odour problem. Bears & Cubs days are growing by the month with on average an extra 20 customers every time. Where else can you have a good day out with like minded folk for £14. It's only going to get bigger and better.“

  2. First Visit

    We also had lunch, and it was value for money to.
    Al we can say is this Thank you for a wonderful visit.

    We also visited on 19/3/19. Again had a wonderful time there.
    If you do wish a massage then Matt will meet your needs and made you feel relaxed have had two sessions with him and I was relaxed and felt a whole lot better after my treatments.
    Well worth a visit best place ever.
    Thanks for a wonderful time - Les and Steve xx“

    “Im shocked to read a negative revue about this sauna. I would myself have been dissapointed if the Jacuzzi was not working but give the guys a chance in keeping the place maintained.

    I doubt anyone could come close to offering the wonderful food the previous owner supplied and mostly it was free. Its a costly place to run and if you stop to think about what your actually getting for your £14 entry!!! Its exceptional value in my book.

    So friendly - So clean and well appointed and at times mostly bursting with Hot Guy’s - what more could you ask for..... oh part from Free Soup at lunchtime.“

  5. A great day out

    “Been going here for getting on 5 years and cant understand the negative comments/reviews. I do know that a couple are personal vendettas and in no way relate to the service and value for money always given. The staff are tremendous and couldn't do any more for you. There isn't anywhere better for value, service, facilities & cleanliness.
    I wouldn't miss it for anything on a Weds or Fri if I can't make the former. Jamie and his team work wonders, nothing is ever to much trouble. Keep doing what you do best guys.“

  6. Some New Year Sale!!

    “Steam Room, Jacuzzi and showers CLOSED for at least Two Weeks! Jan 7th 2018 onwards Generous (??) reduction of £2 entrance fee!! They call this their January Sale!! Beware! Heating shut off 3 hrs before Sauna closes. The food is very limited (unless you pay an extra £3) and poor quality. I would not recommend a visit if you remember how it was this time last year. The new management are "Penny Pinching" and not giving value for your money. Watch out for further cuts and probable increases in charges.“

      “I write as the owner of Northwich Sauna,
      Thank you for submitting your review! I can confirm we are making a substantial investment in our Shower, Jacuzzi and steam room areas along with other areas of the building. We have reduced the door entry fee by £2 whilst the Jacuzzi and steam room is closed for these works to be carried out. (We are reopening the Jacuzzi and shower areas on the 19th of January)
      As for turning off the heating we have all thermostats set to 30 degrees, these come on and off during the day to keep the building toastie warm during the winter months.
      We had two alternatives in relation to stopping the 16:00 buffet which was given out three times a week. We decided to keep the door entry fee @ £14 and remove the 16:00 buffet. I will bring to your attention we are a sauna and not cafe. However we offer a coffee shop menu should people wish to purchase food whilst they visit. We also offer free homemade soup and fresh bread rolls at 13:00 daily. I am sorry we have clearly not met your expectation on your last visit. I wish you well in finding an establishment which can cater for your requirements including FOOD for £14 door entry.“

      • cheecky smile

        “I feel the sauna is brill the new owner Jamie has done a great upgrade. It's clean and safe to be in. I now go quiet a lot as I go running and have a shower and work off a few more lbs off in the sauna lol. The staff are friendly and Jamie makes me laugh about me coming in my shorts (I think he likes my legs really lol). I give them top marks for the new look and hope they keep up the good work. I visited yesterday 20/2/2019 and will again I made some good friends there and meet a few guys there from fab guys which we all like the sanua. All the best - cheeky smile xx.“

  7. Definitely the best UK Sauna

    “I have been going to Northwich Sauna for many years and it has seen different managers. Since the new owner take over the place is always clean and fresh.
    The food has always been good and is now the best it has ever been, It is very apparent that the new owner is investing in the business for its future. The welcoming feeling of the staff and management is not in question. Definitely the UK's Number 1 Sauna“

  8. always fun to be had

    “I've been once a month since June at all times and I can honestly say it's a very clean sauna. I've seen the staff working hard cleaning this massive place. they are always friendly and welcoming too. I feel safe here and know my belongings are secure. Will definitely be back.“

  9. Best Sauna in the North of England

    “An exceptional gay sauna, I went there on a Sunday and it was heaving! guys of all ages, most of them gorgeous and I can safely say that I will be back! Worth every penny and the staff were all so very friendly. They sometimes have a "Steak Sunday", so I was told by the absolutely gorgeous hunk who does the cooking! I'll refrain from commenting on his meat and spit-roasting! Get down there lads, it is fantastic, huge place, it took me all day to figure out all the nooks and crannies. Spotlessly clean, airy, comfortable and plenty of condoms and lube.“

  10. Very enjoyable first visit

    “Living as I do in the south west I really wasn't prepared for the sheer scale on Northwich Sauna. It's huge! Also very welcoming, and clean. The website is very helpful and their directions on how to get there were spot-on. Plenty of parking.

    Facilities excellent. Two saunas and a steam room that is more like a house -- it seems to go on for ever and has lots of little nooks and corners. Small jacuzzi. Sunbeds available at a small additional charge; also a resident masseur available.

    Upstairs there is a vast selection of private rooms, many with screens showing adult films (a different film in each one), couches, glory holes, a swing etc. Also a large, comfortable seating area by the main screen.

    Nice coffee lounge, and food available. Sometimes free food is laid on: on the day of my visit there was an excellent tea-time carvery that in itself was worth the price of admission.

    There were dozens of guys there during my visit, but the place didn't feel at all crowded. Tended to be older during the afternoon, but a lot of younger guys started appearing late afternoon / early evening.“

  11. Im hooked

    “Well, I have been a few times now and each has left me satisfied.
    I'm a tall slim youngish guy so do find it hard to get similar in here, although I preserve great areas to go play; love walking around naked and may have to try the dark part of the steam room. Staff are friendly and I wonder how friendly they would be next time I go.

    Haven’t tried the food but to be honest I usually got something in my mouth here anyway.“

  12. First visit to this Sauna on Sat 30th June 2018

    “Decided to go and have s look at this place because I had a voucher for £5 entry and a couple of guys had already given me a recommendation so decided it was time to visit. Two decent sauna rooms a brilliant steam room and a huge cruising area upstairs, food and drinks available and reasonably priced, Staff and clientele seem nice and friendly and lots of action to be had, mainly in the steam room and in the large group area, Had s good day and will be returning for more visits in the near future“

  13. Newbie

    “I went here 4 weeks ago and returned 2 weeks after. First of all, I was so nervous it was unreal. I thought it was easy to find couldn't go wrong tbh.
    On entering there are men in towel going about there business.. and then there is a polite guy wearing a jock behind the reception. I paid, got a locker key and a towel. I found my locker and started getting undressed with a few guys naked I opted to follow.

    I grabbed some lube and condoms from the counter - free of course - and went into the shower area with hot tub and steam room. I saw a nice young guy so showered and went into the steam room! Had a look around for my first time and saw this guy again! Ended up in a little booth.

    I left soon after as nerves got better of me, but the second time I was determined. I entered and same nice guy in his jock on reception. This time I went and chilled in the hot tub and steam just relaxing. I then ventured upstairs...never explored it all as felt uncomfortable as there were a few guys staring. I did wander around the private rooms; seemed nice and clean as does all the place - porn on the TVs and so on.

    I will be attending again to explore more.. so far mainly older guys... I do hope younger guys make more appearances. “

  15. Wonderful place

    “I visit occasionally only because I live a long way away. Otherwise I would be there much more regularly. The staff are very friendly and in general it's clean although the carpets upstairs are a bit worse for wear. I try to go on Tuesday or Wednesday when from experience the place is full and action is guaranteed.
