Personally find all the staff friendly and welcoming. The facilities are superb and always finding staff cleaning continuously.Never found a reason to complain.

Me and my boyfriend were racially profiled and refused entry. Staff said we looked drunk when we were only tired after a long bus drive. Two guys after us got in and they were clearly drunk.

I’ve been to this sauna, but it would be at least 15-16 years ago. After reading a number of reviews I plan to go again; and I’m hoping I can add two more stars! We’ll see.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL customer service. Been here a few times didn’t wanted to come back coz of rude behaviour of specy tall bloke but luckily today there’s a guy called Marius working. I Hv got no words to describe how polite and professional he is. A perfect person for the job. Highly recommend if there’s staff like him. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Horrible sauna...and even worse service. On Saturday evening I wanted to be nice and smiled at the employee at the reception and he thought I was drunk .. but he let me in. I was sober but so what. There are generally no people in the sauna, no people at all. Most of the people I met there were the same faces I know. The entry fee is very high. I do not recommend this sauna. Especially to young people

Great space for fun. Areas are clean. Two jacuzzis so plus points. Very friendly clientele. I'm loving Manchester so far. Steam and sauna. Rain showers. They have a sling, an X-cross, and a simulated prison cell. It was relatively quiet at the time so no one was using them. There's a few Internet stations. They close at 9pm except on Saturdays.

I AM NOT GOING BACK THERE AGAIN,REASONS——I have been going to this place since this year 3/4 times a week, all the staffs are miserable, always moody, always rude, no respect for customers, rooms don’t get clean properly at all 1/10, noticed they looks after very well when their friends comes in. Noticed that only KAYON smiles and friendly with all the customers. Most of the time cold water in shower. On 27/08/22 I asked for a towel and been asked to pay £1 without any notifications on my entry. I hardly use 2 towels. I was talking to other members about the charge, few said they got towels which not been charged. So the staffs don’t see all customers in same way. VERY DISAPPOINTED

Accompanying friend, who last attended around 5 years ago, is highly impressed with the sauna's improvements, increased space, new black tiling throughout that is sophisticated looking and visually appealing.Excellent sauna well worth a visit to freshen up, relax, enjoy a snack while watching TV or going online and enjoy all the other facilities of a fantastic men's health club.

Disgusting staff. Dirty. Rude customers.Many times the toilets do not work and especially often the tubs are out of order and when you pay the ticket they do not tell you to warn you. while professional people should make you pay half the price and notify you first if there are any disservices in the sauna so that the customer can choose whether to enter or not. Sometimes the dark room are closed for work and they never tell you that too. Showers same,sometimes work sometimes not. Unprofessional staff .. Dirty and negative environment. I do not recommend this sauna to any potential customers

Absolutely disappointed 😞. I traveled all d way frm Newcastle to Manchester just to visit dis place. There were 3 staff members with Absolutely zero customer service skills. the guy there on reception on Saturday night 21may wasn't for dat job. They jst didn't wanted to help. Such places do require good looking camp guys on reception with sweet smile and polite voice with a welcoming attitude. D bar guy wasn't in d bar most of d night. People wanted to eat and drink something but sadly there was nobody to serve. Many saunas make good money from their bars inside but there the kitchen was like never been used. As i been up all day had no sleep or rest for like 20 hours. I fell asleep on sofa by mistake didn't realize how and when. The tall specky bloke who was in d bar literally screamed on me. I was knackered didn't knew anywhere or anybody in the whole city. Was jst waiting for my coach in about two hours. Couldn't find any point to book hotel to sleep for 2 hours. 1 star for mixed races and ages I got to meet there otherwise zero efforts from the team to make visitor's experience unforgettable. Another thing not everyone visting ther is frm Manchester originally. Some people come from work and some people are just visiting So not everyone get prepared before get there. There should be hand jet in toilets for people to get prepared for bottoming.

How can I communicate with those responsible for this place to find a way to communicate via messages.

I give 3 stars simply because of the staff and cleanliness, I received an aggression in the sauna by another client and although I immediately went to the manager everything remained in words, no type of aggression by anyone should be tolerated, neither verbal nor physical, then I continued with my own but always aware of my shadow in case the same person did something to me again, the staff helped but I think that aggression should not be tolerated. The prices are expensive and it's not what it was years ago, maybe they should innovate a little more because people go on Sundays when it's busy and they don't come back anymore.

Can't get with the negative reviews. Place is clean, friendly staff. On the couple of occasions I've been, had a good time 😉

Had a good experience but was missing some essential things; like having more showers with warmer water, water fountains, and a place to get ready. I visited on Sunday afternoon, and it was fairly busy. Even though the place is massive, it lacks some key features that are kinda expected

Nice place, busy on a Sunday afternoon, mainly older/mature men. (That place look much brighter than the photos they posted on here). Big space with loads of corridors to cruise and lots of cabins. Felt very clean everywhere, thank you!!Only down, two tiny sachets of lube given at the entrance when you pay £24 to get in, condoms available tho, but no lube in the cabins, that's very disappointing.

Basement seems to have shot itself ​in the foot with the price hikes. I have been three times since it reopened last year, once on a Friday night, once on a Saturday night and once on a Sunday daytime on all three occasions the place has been considerably less busy than pre price hike. It's too expensive and until this is addressed unfortunatly I can't see the place enjoying the amount of custom it used to get The place itself is fairly decent, and clean but at between £15 to £19 it's very steep. If you compare with saunas in Europe which have similar prices yet much more facilities you can see why people are not returning as often. The price is putting people off, especially local guys who used to use the place regularly.

When I came to this bar a while back meaning good few years back I was banned for life for falling asleep I can understand I was abit knackered from my night outing but banned because of it was appalling and far as am aware am still banned from there which is real shame as I use to love going to this place in the sauna and everythink else to go with it and staff that were once there or if there still there were very rude! And that’s why am rating it 1 star unless I was to change that but no questions there I don’t think be any time soon

The guys are really nice 🙂 A lot has changed. Sometimes there is an internet problem with computers. Anyway, It is clean and tidy. The sauna works very well. Relaxation area after renovation. It's good that you can pay the card at the bar (before the pandemic you had to cash back at the reception). The problem is that not many people come here, even at the weekend there are few people, and during the week it is very quiet.

The staff have never been rude to me, though I've heard reports of this. The place is pretty shoddy though. They don't supply paper towels and waste bins...
