    15 nov 2022'

    “Fantastic well clean place guys.scotland travelor bit nervous, you made me feel welcome, mixed age guyz but happy to chat and some safe fun too. Thanx i will be back.“

  2. J Jimmy
    Fab place

    “I've been coming here for around 6 months usually Wed/Fri nights but today I went on a Sunday, well it was great, really busy compared to the other nights, a wide variety of guys, young, old, middle age, seems a lot of them knew each other, maybe its a regular thing on a Sunday, anyway I'll be going again on a SUnday when I get chance. The place itself is really good, not amazing but good, a nice sauna outside, sauna and steam room, lots of rooms and gloryholes, and a great lounge. Everyone is always really nice, from staff to visitors, for a complete beginner in the gay or bi world no one is ever pushy, but I just love that I can walk around naked all the time, I just love it!“

  3. A Alex
    Lovely & spotlessly clean

    “Great facilities , lovely friendly owner and great cruising area along with glory hole cubicles and cinema, been a few times recently and sadly my visits have been spoiled by one creepy old man who kept following me around and intruding on any meets I had. Sadly this has put me off returning.“

    Good... but could be better

    “I've always liked this place. It's not easy for me to get to, but it's been worth the regular effort.
    The spa facilities are first rate and can't be faulted (and always clean) but the play area (two floors) has increasingly become a disappointment. The top floor is a total waste of space, so it's best ignored.
    Both cinema rooms used to be good, with one originally having stepped seating, which was really good. But nowadays, flat mattress in both cinemas and not a cushion or beanbag to be seen, makes for a very uncomfortable time, so I wonder is it worth coming any more? Where there used to be quality TV entertainment on proper screens, there's now grainy overhead projection onto poorly prepared walls. And as to the"quality" of the material being projected, it's enough to drive you back downstairs. Overall, it's a terrific 5* spa with 1* fun facilities. But I think it won't be seeing me very often - except perhaps in better weather, because the outside area is very nice.“

  5. N Nige37
    Very nice, but needs tweaking.

    “I really like this sauna. It's not easy for me to get to it, but it's clean and very well maintained, and the clients are mostly quite friendly. What you could call the "Spa" side of the operation is very good indeed but the play area (over two floors) desperately needs improvement (the upper floor is a complete waste of space).
    There's a real lack of imagination in the rest of the play area too (so unlike the downstairs facilities) and there's absolutely no comfort anywhere. There's no cushions nor bolsters on the mattresses (just some flat triangular shaped things that get in the way) so if you like your fun to last a long time, and be comfortable at the same time, that's really not possible here.
    It's a fantastic spa experience, but not much else, unfortunately.“

  6. S Scott
    Excellent Venue :)

    “I went to this place recently - first ever time in such a place. Super, super friendly staff, great facilities and it was fairly busy whilst I was there. A real mixed crowd but a very welcoming place and I can wait to go again! :)“

  7. C Christopher

    “There are always a better choice for people to go there compare with another sauna in Blackpool. And the owner has a really good sense of humour and personal service. We really appreciated what have done to update his sauna all the time.“

  8. R Robert

    “What a lovely v clean friendly club, no pressure just enjoy n browse or play“

  9. M Martin
    Great Place

    “I have tried both gay saunas in Blackpool Aqua and W3. I prefer W3, very clean venue friendly staff and plenty of rooms, etc.“

  10. D Darren

    “Nice nice.“

  11. J Jas
    Excellent place and ideal for enjoying.

    “Total marks all round 10/10 for this venue. Staff great; price- wise great value for money; facilities excellent and clean; towel/lube/condoms provided as part of the service. Has to be one of the best in the UK for guys to meet and have private fun.

    Also when available massage service, a sound price and a natural based massage....recommend it...reduces bodily stress and makes you feel totally relaxed. A nice addition to a great facility.

    For Gay or BI males, this venue is a nice and trusted place to enter and feel relaxed and just mingle and go where whatever happens.“

  12. C Charles

    “Love this place been coming here now nearly 3 years friendly staff nothing to much trouble yes there are mainly older men but in my opinion older with more experience I can be myself with likeminded men“

  13. D Dave
    Curious experience

    “Visited sauna today. A few guys in around noon. Great service by staff. Really clean. Saunas are nice - too hot for me! Lots of playrooms upstairs. Lovely outside area. Everywhere immaculate. Enjoyed my time watching the straight videos for an hour on my own.

    Will definitely be going back - would recommend as a newbie to the scene x“

  14. C Christopher
    The bet sauna in Blackpoo.

    “No doubt about it. This is the best and cleanest gay sauna in Blackpool. It's so comfortable and welcoming you can't help but feel relaxed. Forget the other sauna. W3 is the best.“

  15. I Ian
    1st visit

    “Pride Sunday had saw this place advertised and went along with my partner , it’s a lovely clean welcoming sauna , plenty places to play large steam room and the patio was great being a sunny day even had a BBQ going bumped into an old friend from my days living in the town, will visit again on my next trip.“

  16. J Jas
    Excellent experience

    “My first visit (I am a mature married male) but wanted to explore the other Bi side of me. I have to say from entering the place, staff excellent and welcoming, put you at ease; once inside - facilities are great, clean comfortable and 1st class.

    Clients inside - this was early afternoon and quite a few guys in, all very friendly. Made several nice intimacies whilst there over a 3 hour period. Could have stayed longer but had to leave due to having to travel back home. This place is somewhere if you are bi-curious like me, is well worth exploring where you can relax and just enjoy like minded man company.“

  17. S Stewart
    Clean and tidy. Spacious and modern.

    “An occational visitor to Blackpool and usually visit here to chill out. Large hot steam room and nice hot sauna. Every time I return somthing else has improoved. The owner and staff seem to invest effort and time in the place. Credit due. Well done Keeping up the better image of the Blackpool gay scene.“

  18. S Simon

    “Today was my initial visit to W3. Welcomed very warmly by a sexy young man. The suana is immaculate, decorated very well, the cabins are a great size. I would recomend it to anyone.“

  19. L Leslie

  20. N Nik
    my first time

    “My first time at w3 was very nice. The receptionist was extremly helpful and as it was my first gay experience he took the time to calm me down, make me feel safe and relaxed. There weren't many guys in when I was there but still got two really nice facials. Will be going back as soon as I can.“

  21. K Kinky1963
    Spotlessly clean!

    “Had a good time in here last night.
    Well appointed with superb facilities.
    Great fun exploring the two floors of playrooms and struck gold with some very nice guys .“

  22. M Michael
    All visits

    “Immaculately clean and good value for money. However when I went there on a Saturday night I was told it shuts at 10:00pm?
    Really??? I thought it would be a busy time and advert on here says open 24 hours at weekend?? Not the case.“

    w3 sauna

    “Went to w3 sauna last week first time here I was impressed very clean, love the hot tub there wasn't a lot of guys in but after about 10 mins in the place I was with 3 hunky guys. Best sauna in Blackpool hope to see you soon guys xxx“

  28. A Alasdair
    Very very good sauna

    “There is only ONE gay Sauna in Blackpool. That's my opinion. And it is without doubt W3. Stranger in town for one night so foolishly went to Aqua. Paid my £10 and was out within 10 minutes. Another £10 at W3 and I felt it was worth the £20 I had just spent. Clean. Stylish. Well equipped. Spacious. Busy. Enjoyable. Way better than the tatty tread bear dirty alternative. Save yourself the bother and take my advice - W3“

  29. M Martin

    “Been twice loved it friendly clean got what I wanted good price will be going Wednesday when they more guys there . See you all there“

  30. M Maly
    Polish 23 yo

    “I visited W3 Sauna 3 times and I'll be tere today(Friday) as 4th. In my opinion it's best sauna in Lancashire !!! It's like a different world to me. I'm walking in there and I'm free. I'll be there from 10am and as long as I can. Young Polish guy(glasses). See ya hopefully.“

  31. S STEVEN
    Absolute Must

    “Went here for the Christmas Party. Never seen a Christmas spread like it. Enjoyed a glass of wine and plenty of fun to be had. Guys of all ages, Sexy guys behind the counter. Very warm and welcoming.“

  32. C Charles
    First visit

    “My first ever gay sauna visit I was very nervous but upon arrival the guy on the desk put me at ease and was very friendly. I undressed but wasn't shy about being naked with men so I wrapped my towel around me and went up to the playroom. Other men I met put me at ease by around half hour of being there I was walking around without my towel around me I had a great time and got what I came for. I would highly recommend w3sauna. I now have made several more visits and am now a regular myself I would say to anyone who haven't ever been to a gay sauna and are nervous coming please don't be.“

  33. p paul
    Friendly place to go

    “It is clean and friendly. As a lone visitor I was apprehensive, I need not worried. The owner was friendly as were other people there. Facilities were good something for everybody.
    Don't read reviews go for yourself and make your mind up. You will not be disappointed“

  34. J Jim
    My experience of w3 sauna

    “Very quiet sauna both days I went you could count on the one hand the people in here...but to top that the guy that's runs it has one terrible attitude to the customers totally unhelpfull.. I definitely won't be back I'll will be going to the other one aqua it's bit more run down than w3 but same price and hours, far busier the day I was in and friendly staff too.“

  35. d davy
