welcome to queer saunas
Gay saunas are great places to meet discreet guys into other guys. We aim to provide a complete and in-depth guide to gay saunas in the UK for gay men so you can find the best place to relax after a hard days work.
If you have been to a gay sauna and have something good to say why not write a short review. If you know of a gay sauna that isn't listed please let us know!
I had been to this place a over a year ago and it was a foam party night. I had the best time and thought highly of the place having only been once. I went however last weekend and it was terrible. They don’t do foam parties anymore which is a shame but not a huge loss.
The reason I would not recommend to go is how poor the facilities have got. The price is not cheap to get in a yet the facilities are appalling and falling apart. Their is no porn shown any were anymore. The cinema room has gone and were a tv use to be is ripped of the wall and all the small screens dotted about just show a logo of the sauna.
All that is left in the sauna is cubicles and most of them have doors broken. You do have the sauna upstairs and steam rooms but seriously it’s not worth going especially when you consider the pleasured Rome is near by which is cheaper and far more superior in quality and service.
Me and a mate decided to have a trip to Hull to visit this sauna and we’re very glad we did. From the moment we paid our entry fee, which is currently just £5, we had a great time at this friendly, welcoming sauna. All the staff were helpful and attentive. The men we met there were very friendly and struck up conversations. The whole place is clean and tidy and well kept. The porn was great too: no twink films! I had some good sex there, as did my mate. We will definitely go back soon despite it being 2 hours from home.
I have been a regular here for some time now. Yes I keep coming back. It's always friendly and clean. The facilities are excellent and the staff are great.
In answer to one of the previous reviewers, condoms and lube are free. Just ask at the bar or like me, on the way in.
I love the Gentry it amazing in there the staff are really kind and amazing and the facilities in there are amazing. i always go back no matter what!
I have been visiting the Greenhouse in Darlaston for almost a year now, with approximately a dozen visits over that time; this, I believe, makes me 'qualified' to comment upon it. I accept that I did not know what it was like in the 'good old days' when the prices were lower, so I cannot make a comparison with then, but as such a comparison would be irrelevant to anybody currently considering going for the first time, I do not think that it is necessary.
I would say that there are two issues to be addressed here: value for money and quality of product. The admission price of £16 is not cheap, but it is less than the price of a round of drinks and, assuming that a person only visits every few weeks, as I tend to, a relatively small cost per month or year. Furthermore, parking is free and towels, lube and condoms - and sometimes food and soft drinks - are provided for free, too.
The quality of the product comes down to two things - the facilities and the atmosphere in the establishment. The facilities are extensive; the locker room may be somewhat cramped, but it is not impossible to change there, and sometimes the saunas themselves are not as warm as they might be, but, considering the size of the building and the number of features, there are far more positives than negatives to the place. When everything is operating, there is a decent-sized pool - which is barely used, in my experience - a hot tub that could fit up to 10, two wet saunas, one dry sauna and four showers. And that's just the sauna aspect of the place! As far as 'entertainment' is concerned, there are two cinemas, at least two communal darkrooms, six gloryhole booths, numerous small private rooms and booths and areas of 'specialist' interest, such as a dungeon and watersports area. There is also a smoking area, a relaxation lounge and even an outside area on the roof.
In my experience, Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays (which is called 'Dare to Bare' day, where patrons are encouraged to go naked) are the busiest and, therefore, the most active. Perhaps if a few more guys were less shy about covering themselves up with their towels the rest of the time - after all, we are all there for the same thing and there is no need to be modest - there would be no need for a 'Dare to Bare' day at all! Nobody ever strikes me as being there for the sauna, pool or hot tub, and the films in the cinema are not good enough to justify going there for them, so, logically, guys must be going there mainly for 'fun'! So relax and let everyone see what you have, guys......
If you go into 90% of the rooms you will be 'safe' from any unwanted attention; guys will be friendly but I personally have never experienced or witnessed any 'pushiness' by anybody on anyone (which does not necessarily mean to say that it does not happen, of course). If you go into the dark rooms you will find hands and bodies aplenty; if that does not appeal to you either don't go in there in the first place or leave when it happens.
In summary, therefore, this sauna is (mostly) clean, warm, comfortable, enjoyable and friendly, with a wide variety of clientele and attractions to keep both newcomers and regulars satisfied. I think that it's worth the admission price, too.
