Disappointed with the cleaning staff and the friendliness of some.Clientele over the years has changed too.I don’t think I’m coming back any time soon.Pity.

If you’re used to certain privacy rights, do not go here. Upon entry you are not notified, nor does the establishment attempt to gain written or verbal consent in regards to the fact, they are filming you. In every space. The changing locker rooms, hot tub etc. This is incredibly illegal in the United States.Most egregious, however, is the WiFi router for the cameras is easily accessible by any patron in the locker room. Anyone with mediocre software skills knows how simple it would be to gain access to the network and this footage could easily be in the hands of one, or many, outside parties.It’s simply not worth the risk. I wish I knew before visiting.

A lot of recent one star reviews here, so I was a little apprehensive coming here at first. I checked out another sauna beforehand which was totally depressing, like stepping back in time. Hoping to relieve such a terrible experience since my first and last time at one 7 years ago, I decided to head over to Pleasuredrome.I can confidently say it was such a pleasant experience for my re-reintroduction to saunas from the moment I walked in. The guy at reception with glasses and a sleeve tattoo on his right arm was welcoming and informative, and we had a nice brief chat. It was £12 entry (bargain!) as long as you show a valid proof of ID that you are under 30, as stated on the website. You get temp checked on the way in. Changing rooms were clean and lockers contained 2 towels. General area smelt luxurious, with attractive mood lighting and a modern design. I’ve never seen this place before refurbishment, but cleaners were visibly maintaining and cleaning the site which is good to see.Most of the latest negative reviews here seem to refer to paying for private cabins, which wasn’t typically the case. There are rooms available for free but they had barred windows and likely won’t be as comfortable as the paid ones. Especially for a Tuesday evening, there was quite the mix of attractive men! Steam rooms were in fact quite small but that didn’t stop fun things happening. There were decent showers, and several other rooms. The steamy dark room smelt a bit funny, but I guess that’s to be expected! Apart from the bar, and a brief lie down on the chairs by the jacuzzi there wasn’t really anywhere else comfortable to chill out. Though, the atmosphere totally makes up for this, and the clientele seemed respectful and nice. Not gonna lie though, the workers checking certain areas with their flashlights especially whilst getting steamy in the steam room can be a bit of a turn off to some but I chose to ignore it - they are doing their jobs after all! Compared to the place I checked out before, it was nice to see the option of adult entertainment in large HD (4K?) quality. The bar area had condoms and lube available and appeared to be a good area to socialise.In summary, a pleasant experience with satisfactory cleanliness and a variety of rooms to visit. It was a nice reintroduction to visiting a sauna, and practicing on my expressive body language. However, more comfort would’ve been desirable. I found what I was looking for, and it definitely made up for the awful sauna I went beforehand. Worth at least a visit if you’re thinking about checking it out, especially as a first-timer!

Terrible place with bad staff attitude, especially at the bar (Indian looking supervisor). Overall poor and smelly. They charge 20 pounds to get in and then you must pay an additional 4 pounds for a small cabin……everywhere in the world relaxing cabins are free……this place is a waste of money and time. Stay away!!’

The place was very clean, cleanest than what I normally see in other saunas, the interior design is of superior grade with tiles, heated stylish lounges I suppose made of brass, glass tiles, a colder shower, the shower room is very clean and with mood lighting, it's a small boutique SPA, in the past I also booked a professional sport massage and that was good too. I believe they still have the Ozone water cleaner in the Jacuzzi as the water was very clear.The staff was super friendly as I spoke with George and two other nice guys, it was very refreshing experience as the average on the gay scene in London is between mediocre and rude, while they were going up and down the place cleaning and hovering it caught my attention that they were wearing stylish and tidy uniforms that really stood out, it is an exceptional presentation.I've been there on a very late Friday night, got very lucky despite the place was very quiet. I would visit more often if they had the handheld bidet sprayer (as they used to, but people used to make a mess so they took it away, hence not a 5 star review) or anything even basic yet sturdy that could help to pass water. Doing it beforehand is not an option as you need to do it more than once during the whole night, not all is lost though, they said another option is to bring my own stuff from home but that needs forethought and carrying lolThe private cabins are pristine since I've seen them carefully manually cleaning them after each single use, some also have a mirror which is the cheery on the cake, it makes sense that they charge for them but they really have to streamline the booking system, they need something like an automated vending machine where you choose room, duration and you tap your debit card or Apple Watch (or similar) to pay and then the room will open and you'll have a printed temporary code to go back in it.The current process to book a room takes too much time, after you found your guest you have to:1. go to reception2. queue up and wait3. when it's your turn you have to give back your wrist key, they give you a temporary new one4. you have to pay (those without an Apple Watch with Apple Pay or similar add extra steps..) on the handheld machine5. come back after using the room to swap again the temporary wrist key with your original wrist keyAll this happens while the staff is multitasking welcoming new customers, communicating with each other and running after other chores.No matter how efficient is the staff in multitasking, in the context of a gay sauna where all the interactions with other guests tend to be fast paced it seemed like it was never ending.I didn't really like that some people physically took over the whole cinema room and used it as a dormitory so the remaining customers who were still awake couldn't use it, I flagged it to the staff who said they can't ask them to move but I believe they need to find a solution to this otherwise the few other guests can't really use that room until someone wakes up and moves. If they can pester people in order not to play in the Jacuzzi then they should be able to pester people not to sleep in the cinema room. It's also not safe to sleep there, they're vulnerable or they may have passed away etc.Overall a very good experience compared to what I remember of that place in the past so looking forward to return.

I like the place...modern and clean BUT paying for cubicles on top of the entrance fee and using the extra charge as an excuse to keep the rooms clean? Unacceptable! And worse of all ..no place to douche? This is London in 2022 ??! It's a pipe with clean water! That's all..get it already!

I liked it much more on our first visit in December than in May. There was someone there shouting and arguing with the front desk clerk quite loudly for 10-15 minutes. So that was not a good vibe. Putting that aside, the clerks were nice to me. I did not have any issues with them. Others seem to have. We witnessed not one, but two arguments with customers. Just odd.Anyway, I really like the interior layout. I do wish that there was a real dark room there. It badly needs it. It's sort of steam room or bust there for fun. It gets very crowded on weekends but not necessarily a lot of fun to be had. That's why I think a dark room would be the obvious solution. But it's certainly kept very clean and organized.The "bartender" was very incompetent. And you can only pay with cash or card there which is so so dumb. Who walks around a sauna with their wallet? Most places just have you pay at the end. Makes a lot more sense. Keep in mind I've probably visited bath houses/saunas in 5 or 6 different countries. So I try to put these places in perspective. They're not ever going to be gold stars of customer service. I'd still put Pleasuredome in the top tier of bath houses you're likely to find. If only because it's clean. Which, unfortunately, is not a given. lol

Cubicles are now all pay to use, nearly all of them are empty. Really disappointing. This was the best sauna in London, could not recommend it now. A great pity, it's very clean and been recently decorated.

Place is generally small, cruising areas are tiny, steam rooms smell like swamp, payment system is ridiculous (they don't charge your bracelet number so you can pay everything when leaving, instead they give you a second key for a smaller locker inside where you can keep your cash), no dark rooms, swings, cages or anything interesting. No douching areas, prep yourselves at home. Crowd is mixed and diverse. 2 stars only because staff was nice and friendly, place itself deserves 1.

I have been visiting Pleasuredrome for quite a while it's still my favourite place in London. Unfortunately all the rooms have to be paid for but at least you can always get a clean room when you need one 😉. Quite interesting crowds on the afternoons I have visited, always clean, staff seems friendly. One star deducted for the lounges by the jacuzzi. They aren't most comfortable things to lay on, but hey, I don't go there to sleep.

First time when I was there they didn’t ask me for an ID , second time today they asked me for it.I didn’t pay £20 as I’m 30 years old and I don’t think it’s fear.However I can’t proof it but they should had told me the first time when I visit it that I need an ID.I would have appreciated if they made an exception and let me know that I need to bring my ID for next time.It’s quite rude that they think I am older and I need to pay extra.Don’t mean to be disrespectful but the staff need a better customer service training.I’m not going there again.

staff spends all the time with a flashlight in the cruise areas completely breaking the mood… the sauna and the two steam rooms have an unbearable smell. few cabins are available for use… nothing fun

UPDATEFebruary 2022I have removed two stars from my original review as the venue has decided to REMOVE douching facilities for guests! How are people supposed to enjoy themselves without such a basic facility. PUT THEM BACK!June 2021Firstly, let me say this place is now great. The refurb was much needed and a significant improvement, the staff were also lovely. It's a big venue and has attracted a great crowd since reopening, there's lots of sexy guys attending throughout the weekend, good music and a nice atmosphere. They also have bidet/douche stations which is a fantastic idea and much appreciated. Unfortunately I couldn't give 5* as you've removed all the free private rooms and these now cost extra (on top of the £20 entry) which is expensive.

I went for the first time. I really liked the good ones plus one of the big hair and the ugly face was really bad for me. If you pay 💰 for something. Much be nice 👌. Have one guy working the him give me all the time candy. So nice to me.

I have visited twice since the refurbishment, and have left feeling disappointed on both occasions!Although the decor has been refurbished, the lack of open dark play space, and the locked cabins have totally changed the dynamic.The whole place is too harshly lit, and the obvious CCTV all over is discouraging.In comparison to other venues around London the premium price is not justified.I can’t find a reason to return.

My partner Da'jew and I had such a great time here, the towel boys were great, the atmosphere was out of this world and we finally got to spend some quality time together! Spending time with my man, sweating in the sauna, getting back to the basics is exactly what we needed. I was recharged and exhausted at the same time!LGBTQ is who we are!

I visited recently and had a great time. I thought the place was clean and well attended. I had a drink at the bar and met some really nice guys and we sat and talked for ages.If I had to make one or two suggestions it would be that some more areas for sitting/lying in the cruising area and also less of the torches from the staff - it's a little off putting and kills me mood just a tad 🤣

A great sauna and understandably famous for a reason. Have been many times over the years and I always have a good time when I’m in London. The hours seem to fly by while you’re here. I love the jacuzzi next to the bar. Has reasonable rates and great looking patrons. The locations not as good as Sweatbox but not bad either. It’s not a very discrete place though as far as baths go. They take a photo of you every time you enter the spa, and there are staff and cameras virtually everywhere so you’re being constantly watched by people that aren’t participating in the activities going on in there so it can be a little awkward when staff walk in on you in the middle of a group of guys having a go at you… but theyre typically really very sweet and work hard to keep the place as clean as possible so it’s a double-edge sword.

I'll be honest I'm probably not the kind of guy that visits these places normally so my review is probably biased to some extent. So take it with a pinch of salt. But if you've not been somewhere like this before, have a read...There are a couple of things that mean I would never go back here ever again.The first thing, is there is CCTV *EVERYWHERE* and I mean everywhere. I'm the kind of guy that likes to be quite discrete and I was shocked at the extent of the cameras everywhere. Some guy in an office at Pleasuredrome basically has a hard drive full of videos of guys doing who knows what. The cameras were in the corridors, the dark areas, changing rooms, etc. Mostly they are not noticeable in the dark but they've all got those led lights that work in the dark, so it's actually a bit concerning how much they probably pick up. It didn't seem proportionate and I must admit I've come away feeling really uncomfortable about that. If the venue sees this then I hope they'll reply and explain their retention policy in that regard.The other bizarre thing is that the staff come around with torches every 10 minutes or so, which really does kill any sort of mood that might exist. I guess they're doing it for a hygiene/safety perspective, but it's still weird.The place generally seems to attract a lot of older unfit guys, which I guess is probably to be expected and so I'm probably guilty of naivety there. But I've heard other places attract a younger crowd. This place didn't and I was definitely one of the youngest guys there.Finally, hygiene wise, the place didn't smell great in certain rooms. But then I guess that's to be expected. They did seem to be quite proactively cleaning but I expect you can only do so much.Overall, I would definitely not recommend this place just because of the lack of privacy, which is my biggest concern. I'm sure the venue will try and justify this for security etc., but I really just don't think it's appropriate, you wouldn't find CCTV cameras in toilets and gym changing rooms, so the fact you have it in saunas just blows my mind.

It is a completely different place after the incredible refurbishment. They´ve done a brilliant job with making it look really cosy and calm. It is a really safe & clean environment. The choice of men is wide and varied, all depends on what you´re after and how open you are to exploring. Everyone is really respectful and decent. The staff are great, extremely friendly, and make everyone feel so relaxed and welcome.

This is a good sauna. I recently visited.Good points:- clean- friendly staff- good location- modern facilities- 24 hour bar- good mix of ages. Something for everyone.What could be better:- need to pay for cabins now. Used to be free.If cabins were free I would give 5 stars.In my experience it is busiest in the evenings and at weekends. You get a good mix of guys. Enjoy!

Hey all!I visited Pleasuredrome few times now and can tell this is the best place to go in London!The place is incredibly clean with very interesting layout, almost like a maze in places. As you can imagine - it ads some special charm to the experience.They have a bar as well which is working 24/7. It’s an amazing one, especially having in mind them prices - they are very low knowing Pleasuredrome is in the central area.The staff is keeping place clean and supervised all the time and you feel really safe and taken care of.And all the staff members are very polite, always smiling and ready to help you at any time.Honestly - I couldn’t ask for a better experience and will definitely come back!You guys are doing a great job!

An enjoyable visit yesterday. I'll be saving up to try the Swedish massage the next time I come down and really relax.Only issue was with a small incident in the sauna where another patron smashed a thermometer and glass ended up on the floor - couldn't be helped. Staff did ok however they seemed to be making it up as they went along and someone did manage to cut their foot.Maybe it's worth exploring some standard incident responses to clear that area of the property when barefooted access is less than safe?

Overall, my first visit was really nice.The venue was clean and well maintained.Positive aspects:The free water was cold and refreshing, and much welcome after time in the sauna/steam room.The shower gel in the showers was also good to have available, and brings it in line with other UK saunas I've visited.The loungers by the Jacuzzi were a good thought out idea, however hard and not practical if you want to lay on your front.Less positive aspects, although points 1&2 they are going to look into.1. Nowhere to hang to towel by the steam room, meaning regardless if you wish to be naked in the steam room or not, your towel has to go in with you, getting it all wet!2. No areas to place your glasses near the sauna and stream room. If you require glasses the signs are hard to read without.3. Although I read about the rooms being extra - this is the first Sauna, be it the UK or otherwise, that I've seen this charged! There is no other free area to have fun. If you were to hook up with someone, the spontaneity of the moment is lost when you have to go get your money and pay.I don't see the need to charge for such, and believe like many other reviewers here, they should be free.I think there should be free rooms/dark room where people can freely have fun. Other saunas that I visit all maintain good cleaning of private rooms, which they offer for free - I see no reason why covid/extra cleaning should be used as an excuse to charge from £4 for a room here.Overall, a clean sauna, well maintained.Would I visit again - yes, when in London.Currently 3 of 5 * When towel hooks, glasses areas addressed then +1* and if the rooms made free, then +1*

Extremely clean and well set out since they have done the refurbishment. With friendly helpful staff. The fact you have the option for paid rooms is fine. They have designed it so that you can have fun for free in different spaces just the same.

I am sorry to say that the “improvements” which have been done recently in my opinion are not effective on neither a health and safety point of you, nor on some conveniences.I would have used a anti-slip floor as it’s still very dangerous walking up and down the place and there are several situation where i was almost falling on the wet floor.The old transparent by the Jacuzzi was great and it used to make the space bigger giving some flow to the lounge area so why rise a wall making the place so enclose? Were those sort of modern “dentist” deckchairs necessary? They look so cynical.I didn’t feel any chlorine in the water and i didn’t like the smell was coming out from the tub.Not many hangers for towels as most of them seems to be disappeared specially near the cold water showers.Some of the hot showers were not working and some were shooting against the tiled wall. Also the pressure seemed to be less than before the refurbishment.And then, really?? Still the old system of needed to carry money if you want to use the bar? Isn’t a bit obsolete? It doesn’t make you wanting to consume a lot as most people can’t be bothered to carry a card around. I would have put a system which would allow you to pay at the exit charging every time you use it for drinks and snacks. Just a chip in the key bracelet would do the job.Sorry guys but i wasn’t impressed at all and because now you have to pay even for “wanking yourself” I decided to don’t come any longer here.Giampiero

Visited recently, clean and tidy and the staff are nice. Very disappointed when I realised I had to pay extra for tiny room. Free and fun rooms should be available for everyone, and please don’t tell me you keep cleaning them after each use. That’s part of the sauna’s services and most guys go there for fun and every saunas I have been they get cleaned regularly. That was just one off visit, never go again.

OMG I paid £20 to get in, yet there is no place for fun unless I pay extra. Seriously.I visited the place over the August Bank Holiday weekend and I soon as I got in, a cute guy was after me for fun. But there were no FREE cruising area. I left immediately. I will never go back if it remains like that.

All in all a great place and I've had a really good time - strong four stars with some improvement suggestions.What I liked:- Big venue with clear signage, generally well planned with things being where you need them- Clean, brand new facilities and sauna and steam rooms that actually work- There's a bar!- Friendly and present staffWhat I didn't like:- Paying for your drinks at the bar - this is an inconvenience as it requires going back and forth to get your phone or cards from the locker. All the other saunas I've been to charge you on exit.- Plastic cups at the bar for water - save the sea turtles!- There's just one cold shower and gets busy when people want to cool down - all others are hot which feels unusual for a sauna- I sent an email asking about the details of what facilities are available as it's unclear due to lockdown restrictions - no one responded.

They just didn't describe that I'll have to pay for storing my baggages, actually they charged me for that.The venue is nice, I like the jacuzzi and showers.But some places are very cold and couldn't just sit in and spend time for a while.Sauna and steams are a bit hotter than should be.The worst part is cruising area which is literally nothing but narrow lanes to walk around.I could safely store my things in th locker and charging boxes.Not that exciting and fun overall. Most dudes got attitude and that killed the fun.

£20 unless your under 30? . Main showers are rain type so you're getting your head drenched. Rooms upstairs are now all paid so nowhere to chill for free. Ground floor laying area is now separate heated hard benches and no screen for movies. used to be able to go there and chill now Everything is now get as much money as possible and hope you leave as soon as possible. If someone make another it will corner the market. Chariots was much better. would rather go eureka in swanley

It was fine, recent renovation was just a bit of a touch up here and there, doesn’t warrant a increasing there standard entry to £30 when it was £20 (still have old price signs up)Minor but I stepped on a bit of glass whilst I was there.

The makeover has just been replacing of tiles a bit of remodelling in bar and reception and new wooden benches in saunas. No new layout. But it does feel cleaner and I do love the heated stone loungers.Unfortunately you now have to pay extra for private cabins and with a time limit for use. There are a few free to use closets which are tiny, you can only stand up in them and they aren't that private because most have cutouts in the walls so u can see into the adjacent closet. So there are hardly any options for private space. It's a bit insulting to be only offered these as options tbh.Also for £2m makeover the door of the big sauna still does not shut so it is cold, and the other sauna is tiny and not that hot either.Lots of missed opportunities, but the sauna scene in London is diminishing so they don't have much to compete with really. Shame.Still, good crowd of nice guys there and you can relax somewhat and staff are friendly.

Both times that I have visited Pleasuredrome, I have had a good time. It's fairly large and was fairly busy with clients there for the fun and good times. I was planning to go again at the beginning of August 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic put an end to my trip, and evidently the Pleasuredrome is closed too out of health concerns.

First impressions - the place is spotlessly clean, the four or five guys looking after the place were doing a good job. There were lots of guys using the place on Thursday lunchtime.The layout is complex but well planned with unexpected rooms and entrances, you feel like exploring. . Had a chat with the barman who was genuinely happy and contented with his pay and conditions. I liked the 2 steam rooms, hot and tepid, the pool and the chill out areas. Best of all the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.

It was very disappointing .1. The cabins was like little basement rooms without a locks with mattress on the floor.For the cabins with a lock u need to pay extra and for normal cabin u need pay even more 🤯2. Saunas was very tiny just for 2-3 people in.3. Locker room and bar system really a lot husle.4. For the people safety shouldn't use glasses.5. Many stuff don't do anything just scraping one chewy gum from the floors.6. Whole place I will describe like a dump and dingy.7. 99% of guys there was skinny smooth.8. It was like semi-naked social club.It's a horrible plays for bears and they admirers.Won't recommend

The facilities were clean (though parts were closed for renovation and apparently have been for some time) and the staff were very attentive. I didn’t have any problems with the staff that some people have described here, although one attendant did spend a lot of time just hanging out in the cruising area and that was a bit off-putting because it felt like we were being monitored. But the guy working the bar was really friendly and chatted during breaks.The atmosphere was relaxed and respectful and there was a fair mix of guys. It was pretty quiet but that’s always a risk on a weeknight and during holidays and I understand that the management can’t guarantee a crowd at all times. Some regulars said it’s still the best sauna in town.A couple of minor criticisms: in general it was all a bit too warm (the pool was almost too warm for comfort) - most European saunas give you a bigger difference in temperature between the relaxation areas and the pool/saunas/steam rooms. It’s also inconvenient that you can’t charge drinks etc to your locker number and pay on the way out. Finally, I did have a bit of a panic when I accidentally spilled poppers on myself; I asked the staff for advice and they were a bit clueless. I guess they’re not trained to answer medical questions but it would be good if they had some basic knowledge of what to do in such situations, which can’t be that uncommon.

I've been many times, and I can honestly say I've never had a bad experience. The staff at reception are lovely (they're not over the top and overly nice which is what I always look for). The bar tenders are always nice. It's a place you can go to disappear, become anonymous, and a place where you're the same as everyone else. Would recommend it 👍👍
