Some of the previous reviews are a bit unfair, this is overall a good sauna, plenty of guys of mixed types, big age range 20s-70s although often 40-70, some guys not engaging just walking round, although lots of friendly guys too, had some good fun here.

best thing: The orgy room, the hot tub, bear day

Looks like a tiny place from outside on Crawley Road. Cool reception from staff, but hardly important, place very spacious spread out over 3 floors with plenty of facilities and extremely clean. Not so many dark corners as on previous visit but would definitely return next time in the area

best thing: Orgy room
worst thing: Odd warning signs

My first visit to the Luton Greenhouse was last week on naked Wednesday. The guys who took my money was friendly and even let me off paying the extra quid to "join" as I hadn't accounted for that. He didn't give me a guided tour but pointed out where the lockers were which is all I wanted - I'm an adult and can discover things for myself.

The locker area is a bit cramped but is OK. The jacuzzi was good and there's quite a bit of fondling goes on in there despite the signs. In fact all the areas I spent time in (most apart from the lounge area upstairs and the fetich area) were very clean and in good repair. My only complaint about this place is all the stairs and fire doors although the bright corridors linking the various parts of the sauna are a good place to display what yo've got, check out other guys, get some eye contact or even the odd sneaky touch.

My visit was in the afternoon and there was a good mix of guys: more older than younger but no shortage of fit men. I'm 49 myself (look younger) and I prefer my age or older so it suited me. I sucked some large cocks in the glory holes and had a couple of guys fuck me in one of the private booths.

best thing: Orgy room
worst thing: Stairs and doors

Dreadful experience. The staff are exceptionally rude. Terrible customer service skills, sneering and deliberately aggressive and rude over minor things.

As for the customers, nothing to write home about. Mostly guys in their 50s-70s, and 90% were clinically obese. Not very appealing.

Won't ever be back. I can see why no young, hot guys go here. The rude staff must scare them off, and there's nothing inviting about the clientele, either.

Unfortunately, I agree with some of the previous reviewers that the staff here, on all occasions that I've visited, are breathtakingly rude and absolutely lacking in 'people skills'. However, it should be noted that you're not visiting a Sauna to be bosom-buddies with the staff. Conversely, the Greenhouse Luton does have some interesting theme nights - Cocks n Jocks, Naked Wednesday, etc.

Cocks n Jocks - usually held on the 1st Saturday of every month - can be interesting: wear a jock or swim trunks or designer underwear. It's an all-nighter, actually going on to about 6am the next morning and does attract some sexy Bedfordshire boys.

The premises are divided across three floors with a sauna cabin, jacuzzi, steam room, a dark maze with private rooms, also watersports area and sling and cage, plus two small and slightly unpleasant smelling theatres showing porn; and a top floor with a communal dark room area with oval bed, and several other rooms. The clientele vary from twinks to muscle to guys 50+ (about 65% of clientele), but are pleasant enough and mostly attitude-free which is normal for an out-of-London crowd.

The Sauna sometimes has an amateurish feel, with posters pinned to the walls asking customers to shower because "Body Odour is Offensive". WTF?! No shit. Quite why grown men need to be told this is bizarre, but it is intrusive and highly inappropriate.

I think the entrance fee - £13 - is too high for such a place and it should be more like £10 for the experience. On the six or seven occasions, I've visited I would say it could be hit-or-miss but on most occasions it was somewhat worthwhile. I did like the sexy feeling of the Cocks N Jocks night, which is one of their more popular nights, although I often found that some of the customers - guys in their 70s or 80s - would not take 'no' for an answer and were extremely annoying.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Luton, and makes a change from the strutting male peacocks of the London saunas.

well my go i have been using this sauna for 6 years and fined it clean tidy and the staff fine and helpfull,as for condoms and lube i agree with the sauna hand out a welcome packet,if you want more buy them 80p for 2 condoms/lube bargin, i've brought a few so i can use them at cruise grounds and toilets where they don't provide them, as for the comment i will not use the Greenhouse until i feel safe with free condoms/ lube makes me laugh, how do you know the guy you picked up of the net,toilet, cruise ground has been using condoms, you don't do they supply you with free condoms for using the app or the website NO, what are we fighting for equal rights for the Gay/bi but we still want free condoms/lube we still want single men benfits sorry it don't work , it's you & the guy your with who decide what sex you have not the sauna, not the council, not the police and not the NHS, if you don't care about your own safety thats you fault no one else, so if you hate paying 80p why not go to Boots and buy your own 3 packet £5.95 lube £6.95 so £12.90 or 80p at the sauna, i will still use the sauna and i will still choose what sex i want and how i want, and if i see you in there let me know and i will give you 80p so you can have a good time.

Been there a few times. I have to drive around 60 miles to get there so I'm always pretty horned up by the time I get there.

Went on Monday - happened to be in Luton so why not? Not very busy but I guess there's never a guarantee. All the other times I went there, it was heaving. Wednesdays are best.

As much as I like the place, and the crowd - big boys are my favourite - it is highly unlikely that I will ever return. They are now giving you a welcome pack with one condom and one lube, and you have to purchase more if you want to. 80p for 2 condoms and 2 lube. Very reasonable price I say. The problem is that on Monday, and this wasn't at all busy, I could see many guys just taking the risk and not putting a condom on. Probably because they can't be bothered to go and buy the extra ones. Unless they lift the free condom restriction, this place will start to become the breeding ground for STDs and HIV.

I will choose a better place - on my doorstep may I say - and have a better chance of making out with guys who are more likely to use or have used condoms. Greenhouse will become a place where bare-backing will become the norm. No thanks.

Call me when this changes.

Guys who complain about the number of older, overweight and unattractive clientele need to remember that, without such users, the sauna would simply not survive. So get over it and enjoy yourselves

I was there last Saturday from midday until about 9 p.m. Not very busy with about 12 guys by midday and the same number when I left. Most of the guys over 50. I was there neary 2 years ago and what I remembered was the cold rooms(5). They are still very cold. There was a young guy at reception who was friendly . When I left there were 2 older guys. I live in London so I don't think I will go back there again.

I have been going to this sauna for 10+ years and have the staff to be VERY helpful and friendly.
Yes, the clientele is mixed - I'm 63, fit and slim and I often get more than my fair share of fit young guys.

Talk about hypocrites - people slagging off the staff for being rude and then going on to comments about clients being fat, ugly or too old - now how rude is that. Practice what you preach guys!
Staff have always been friendly when I have been there, clients a mixed bunch which is surely what you need to cater for all tastes and facilities clean but a bit dated and top floor quite pungent with body odour. Overall I would say that it is worth a visit but could do better

When i visited the staff were contemptible, went out of their way to be rude and offensive, grimacing, frowning and complaining about being asked the merest of requests from a paying customer. no one wants this or expects this from a gay sauna. will not go back, the customers were nothing to look at either.

Pretty mixed reviews so far and, I afraid I am going to add to the 'mix':

I totally agree with previous comments about the staff - Total disdain, lazy almost sneering. If you ask the staff for anything, you are made to feel there are doing you a favor. Guys, take your head out of your ass and smell the coffee: GH is not going to survive unless you shake up your act!!! You are selling an experience which should enjoyable!!!

Facilities are generally good to very good but, it could do with general maintenance.

Cleanliness, good but occasionally, it slips in a big way.

Overall, I have choices: either London or Luton. GH in Luton had my custom over a number years but, there allure is fading rapidly. It's London venue's for me more often these days....

Just back from Greenhouse Sauna after a debated visit due to the reviews. The chap on reception was polite and friendly and there was a mixed range of customers. The Sauna is dated and could do with a facelift but apart from that couldn’t fault it. Take your chance…

Felt the urge to counter some.of these reviews. Staff have never been.anything but polite when.I have been in, yes some of the clientele are older and larger, so, better than some.of the ego boys I've met in London suanas. I've found a polite no thanks and you'll be left alone. As with any suana some days top others not, its a gamble, same as the London suanas I've been to. Pay your money, take your chance

Drove 30 miles to visit this sauna on a Saturday evening at 5.30pm. Sauna itself is okay, three floors, quite spacious. Clientele not to my liking, just not my cup of tea, a lot of guys 50 plus, and quite a large contingent are overweight. Ok, every sauna has its bad days.

The worst thing about this sauna are the staff - as the previous reviewer has said, they are indeed extraordinarily rude, even when asking a simple question.

On my visit, not a single glimmer of warmth or friendliness was shown by the manager - Darren - who was working the door. He was dismissive, abrupt and cold and had absolutely no people skills whatsoever. His manner would be described as consumingly unwelcoming. I have never before encountered this level of rudeness and shall not be visiting this sauna again. It is shocking the level of rudeness coming from the staff here,

Went on Saturday night for c*cks n Jocks. Expecting a great night. Drove over 3 hours to get there. Upon entry, the member of staff was grumpy, frowning, very brusque; when spoken to, he barks back a response, not at all warm or friendly, didn't look me in the eye once.

About 40 or so guys around the entire evening from 9.45pm until 2.30 am (when I left). As it was c*cks n Jocks, some were naked, some were wearing jocks or underwear, etc.

Apart from one v-hot blonde guy in a black jock, I've never seen a more unattractive lot than this bunch of fatties, pot-bellied pigs and weirdos; they weren't only out of shape and ugly, they were rude, insensitive, exhibiting shocking behaviour: farting, belching, singing at the tops of their voices, wandering around in sh*t-streaked towels, insulting other guys who they did not know with crass comments, gobbling down food like starved varmints. I even saw a roly-poly use one of the private rooms as a toilet (a No 2).

Aside from the 98% lack of talent, the place stank of Body Odour (I saw they had signs up about B.O. asking customers to wash!), the place was generally down-at-heel, very timewarp sort of place stuck in the 1980s, some of the private rooms smelt horrid as if someone had died in there, the free buffet was not good either, toilet blocked and left like that, brown lumps floating in jacuzzi, only 1 computer working in internet room, some sticky and horrid on the carpet, entertainment very flat (drag queens and strippers), very b*tchy cliquey clientele.

£13 for this? No thanks. It was a shock-fest. Save your money and get the train to London and head to Chariots Vauxhall or Pleasuredrome.

Terrible. A piss-poor experience. Never again.

a great afternoon. went after lunch on a friday and the place was humming with guys, but an asian twink took my fancy. delicious hairless c*ck, bent to the right and an asshole to die for. after a brief encounter in the gloryhole rooms, we went to a cubicle. i wasn't the first to f*ck him that day cos when i got behind to get my tongue up inside his sweet hole, it was full of delicious cum... i slurped it up, then slid my tongue inside. this boy wanted it badly. he was dripping precum. i'm not small, but my c*ck slid in with no resistance and soon my balls were banging on his butt. i don't know what he was murmuring cos it wasn't english, but i did understand "f*ck me hard daddy". i finished and pulled out. shot a giant load into his bum. i wanted him to cum too so i could taste some asian cum, but he turned away. i left, but as i walked away, someone else went into the cubicle and the door locked again. from what i could hear, that twink was getting another pounding. still later in the steam room two guys were f*cking. i waited my turn, then has a second f*ck that day. i saw the asian twink once more.... also in the steam room, getting another pounding by a black guy with a c*ck bigger than mine. what a slut. two f*cks and a great session in the glory hole room. gonna go back soon

Sorry, but your headline is misleading: this sauna does not have a warm, welcoming atmosphere whatsoever. The staff are particularly rude, and seem to take perverse delight in the cold and petty way they speak to customers. They should remember that it is us who pay their wages. I have a choice of saunas on my doorstep: all the ones in London, and so for me to travel to Luton is an undertaking. Rather than embracing the pink pound, and treating me like a respected and appreciated customer, these people don't give a toss. The customers are pleasant, although it does tend to be a lot of guys in the 50+ age range, which isn't my cup of tea (I'm 28 and looking to hook up with guys around my age).

Great place to go. Especially on a weds when its naked day, so everyone gets to bare all prior to chatting and playing. Great spectator sport to be had, a great mix of rooms.
