  2. CCGM

    “Have visited for over 30 years and still go there. Some staff are indifferent (not physically), but Paul is HOT, and Saturday evenings Colin was/is, too. Friendly and welcoming.“

  3. It's okay at best

    “Definitely doesnt stack up against anywhere I've ever been. Music is too low and out of date, the facilities are olddddd, and I cant believe I'm saying it but the maze is too dark... when in a glory hole box you cant even see if anything is popping through haha. Staff are nice enough and everything was clean.“

  4. Staff

    I'm glad you had a good experience at 431 but I & Papa didn't.
    It's not 'bitching' when we 're simply criticising staff behaviour & we should be allowed to.
    Some of the staff there have a reputation in Adelaide for being rude over the years & should be pulled up about it so the overall feel of the place can continue to improve.“

  5. Great spot to have fun

    “I visit 431 regularly and usually find it's pretty good. It's well maintained and clean, staff are friendly but not overbearing. The guys who go are varied and mostly not too much attitude. Not sure what the bitching is about, I'm not there to shag the staff and I don't need new wallpaper if the men are hot and available.“

  6. Bad service

    “I asked for a towel and the guy gave me attitude and said "Well you could say please", he was very rude. I took the towel and walked away when he proceeded to talk about me with another customer so I said if you have something to say say it to me. Will not go there again. That's what $27 gets you. This also was my first time there. Way to make you feel comfortable. Very sad and tired establishment.“

    • Bad management

      “I'm not suprised to hear yet another story about rude staff again. It's been happening for years & management refuse to look into it properly. This place has been tired for years. I've been to great saunas all over the world but Pultney is rock bottom.“

    “Been going there occasionally. It's OK, but it really needs an upgrade. The same ol', it's just tired!“

  8. Ok

    “Been here a few times. The crowd varies. Facilities a bit tired. However, it's a nice enough place to wander around displaying your wares. I usually head for the sauna and leave well relieved!“

  10. Always enjoy..

    “Always enjoy the comfortable relaxed atmosphere, able to use the outdoor garden to hang free, enjoy the sun on my bare bottom. Steam room always hot and great table for stretches with a pool nearby for cooling nude swim, able to parade openly with confidence. Best upstairs, privacy to explore, make contact, and relax with other bi men.“

  11. Awful

    “I'm guessing you must work there Eric?
    The sauna's terrible. It's poor reputation is well known around Adelaide & hasn't changed for years. The other guy's right, there's no competition here.“

    • Eric

      “I definitely don't work there Ivan. Okay this place doesn't have all the facilities of the bigger saunas on the east coast but it still has plenty to offer. It seems that some of the reviewers on here just want to only focus on the negatives. A balanced review is what matters.“

  12. Eric

    “After reading some of the negative reviews I was pleasantly surprised. Had some great fun with friendly and good looking local guys. Garden area out the back is small but has a really tranquil feel. Facilities were always clean too and staff treated me well.“

  13. No competition

    “The only sauna in town means a take it or leave it attitude from the staff.

    As there is no where else to go don't expect a friendly welcome from this tired and run down sauna.“

  14. Awful

    “The sauna itself is average but it's some of the staff that ruin it.

    It's never really changed too much over the years, they obviously rely on the fact that they are the only place in town, so why bother changing anything?

    I've been there many times over the years & also travelled around the world & Pultney fares badly. It's a place that is supposed to make the customer feel good when we visit but for myself & my many friends who go there it never does. Shame, as it could be so much better.“

    “Where could let me parking the car for free?“
