The worst sauna I have ever been to - - unfortunately the only option we have here in Bristol without leaving the city. I go about twice a year, normally on a Saturday night as it’s the busiest time and I’m generally intoxicated - which dulls the impact of how skanky this place is. I’m not some queen who loves to leave a bitchy review because nobody went near my battered old hole last time I was there, it’s basically like if you were to order a sauna experience from Brainfarts’R’Us.com - - this is wheat you would get, on entry you are “welcomed” by generally an apparently lobotomised extra from the Walking Dead. Then you walk through into the changing rooms which are cold, slippery and unpleasant to get changed in. The jacuzzi around the corner is generally fine and the smoking area also is perfectly adequate. If however you want to take a shower then you can detowel in direct view of the zombietwink staff and push a button which prompts a trickle of tepid water to trickle down onto you, but you have to press the button again every 3 seconds as this is perfect if you are trying to create your own version of Chinese Water Torture. Then up the stairs which are a hazard. They also creak loudly, and are poorly lit. Once upstairs the is a pathetic attempt at a maze gloryhole room with a few bits of cardboard erected which no one ever uses and some bits of the cardboard have holes drilled in but again imagine whoever designed this room let off a massive brain fart as the did it. Then there’s some more gloryholes where the idea is to have one side on a raised platform but about as much thought went into these as the maze room. Next you have 4 separate rooms, one used to have a sling in it but for some reason it is no longer there. It’s as though the thought process was let’s take out the sling, guys are liking using it too much. We already have one in the group room upstairs anyway so no one will notice. Anyway, more stairs but these ones have carpet so a slight improvement all they need to think about now is a light or 2 so people can see them. Group room up top with sling and benches to fuck, as long as you’re not put off by the chorus of snoring from the couple of old farts that tend to have passed out. Anyway that’s about it, there USA steam room/sauna but I don’t think either have ever worked.if GordonRamsey ever decides to branch out and do gay saunas this is where he’d start. Also I heard a rumour there’s a lesbian night once a month now? Anyway the smell of stale minge last time was not pleasant
best thing: Jaccuzi although last time it did smell of gash.
worst thing: Overall sense of filth

After a long absence, I paid a visit to Lad's Locker Room in Bristol on Tuesday October 23 2017, the first naked day after what they had proudly claimed on their Facebook page was going to be a "partial refurbishment". They added "WE WILL BE MAKING FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS” i.e. by November 3.
best thing: it sclose to where I live
worst thing: very badly maintained

I've been coming hear for years when it was called the Cottage Health Spa (I think thats what it was called) to be honest when it was owned by the previous owner (Shaun) he extended it and put lots of other facilities such as the hot tub, cinema room steam room and tv room etc and extended the dark room into the other part of the loft - he spent a lot of money on it. However, when he sold it it has got dirty the steam room as not worked for I would say about year maybe longer they seem to keep the mop bucket in there now, the hot tub does not get cleaned out as often as it should - the water tends to be rather murky, I don't feel comfortable to go in there - on the plus side the the upstairs is better although they have changed the cinema room and it is harder to get comfortable now - the dark room is ok for what it is the everything else is fine to be honest - they really need to spend some money on improvements I would like to see it be the best in Bristol they have the space there they just need to utilise it and get the facilities back up to scratch!
best thing: Sauna, and the dark room the the hot tub if it were cleaned out more often!
worst thing: Steam room not working

I used to go to this place years ago when it was The Cottage, then The Village. Let's face it, it was never the best sauna in the world. Now it is competing for the title of the worst in the world.
best thing: Location
worst thing: So dirty

The Lads locker room is the old cottage sauna under new management and what a change it has been the place is friendly and has been cleaned from top to bottom. There has been a repositioning of some of the facilities and it feels fresh and inviting. As word gets around I am sure this will be a very busy sauna.

Having visited the Lad's Locker room for the first time since it's major refurbishment, I was pleasantly surprised! Very well decorated, with friendly staff. Price for entry isn't too bad either. Would highly recommend the weekend pass but only if you plan on using it for the whole weekend.

I went to the Lads Locker Room last Saturday night, and I wasn't disappointed :) I was a bit apprehensive at first going to a new sauna, but was made to feel so welcomed as soon as I walked through the door. I was also glad to see a bar full of beers, as a couple down the hatchet before going to the facilities usually helps. The facilities we're fantastic and so clean, plenty of the free essential extras (condoms/lube) were placed around everywhere. The locker run was quirky from the grass floor, the Jacuzzi was hot and clean, and the bonus for me was the smoking area, a great addition to a fantastic sauna. There was a great mix of guys, so plenty to choose from. I give it 10 stars and will be going back regularly.
