...a MUST if you are mature...
Visited again a few days ago – not much has changed - the steam room has been re-located and the old steam room is now a “cool off box” but still with action. The parking is not now so easy as there has been a development on the waste ground in Cromer Street/Blakelock Street, but there is still some parking here if you are early or you can use the car park Bowler Street/Glebe Street.

This place is still a utopia for the mature and those that like them – even if the place is a bit basic.

......UPDATE July 2010...

Still as good as ever - just had a fantastic afternoon ;)

Well worth a visit if you over 40 or are into older men!

.....Original September 2008…

This sauna is mainly for the older among us. It is has fairly basic facilities of a sauna, steam room and 4 resting/darkrooms. They serve very good value home cooked meals in the Lounge/TV room.

Most of the action takes place in the steam room. There are no private cubicles as such, apart from a massage room which can double for private purposes. Consequently, much of the sex is orgiastic.

It pays you to get there as early as possible, as there is some "lunch trade" and as the afternoon progresses it begins to empty (home to the wife, I suppose!)

The third Thursday every month 'Naked in North West' Gay nudist evening 4pm-10.30. Closed on other Thursdays.

Great service
Been in here on a few occasions can be quiet on a Sunday but you will still receive some attention. Met a really nice bloke in here(little fella got tats on his legs, back, arms and chest(think his nickname is Dodgy,he calls everybody trouble). He seems to like the older bloke so if you see him dont be shy just say hello he is very very good. As for the facilities they are basic but clean and if you want something to eat well he food is great

parking ok
above laundrette so can get laundry done

Where to start? Had high hopes for this place having read some reviews.
Tiny. Basically consists of 3 rooms/areas. NO private rooms whatsoever.
Im nearly 60, felt like a teenager in amongst the old fellas!
Came away with a insect bite on ankle area just to round things off, wont be rushing back

A Warm Welcome
Renewed my acquaintance after an absence of several years yesterday (Wednesday). Greeted like a long lost friend by owners John and Hugh with an apology for forgetting my name!!

Standing room only (literally) especially in the steam room with a wide mix of ages and sizes, regulars and visitors.

Would recommend the delicious freshly prepared food and an early arrival to catch the action in the clean and well used facilities.

Finished the day with a trip into central Manchester via the new tramway before hitting the M62 and home. A grand day out...

Love older
The people who got to this sauna are an older crowd which suits me as I am attracted to men not boys.
The place could do with a refurbishment but then why fix what isn't broken. The place always has some action going on could do with the dark room being a little more dark and maybe a sling however much better than the other saunas I have been to in the Manchester area almost as good as E15 Club in London.

First visit
WOW, went today for the first time, plenty of 2/3/4/moresum fun every where except lounge area, only down side was 2 people hogging one of the lockable rooms for almost 3 hours, but others were able to watch through the window or holes in the wall. I will be back, when the tram is running it will be an easier journey, and hopefully get busier.

EDIT. Tram from Rochdale to Shaw about 15 mins, should start to get even busier now

Hot! Best in the Country
This is the best I've ever encountered!No plastic ivy, no videos no lockable rooms but who needs them. Just lots of nice guys with no 'side'. It doesn't matter about your age, race, creed or looks. The friendliest place you can imagine. I have never been disappointed. Mostly more mature men but any young'uns who wander in will find themselves well attended to adequately satisfied. I now never go anywhere else and i live 80 miles away. Long may it prosper.
By the way, drinks are reasonably priced and a full, well cooked meal is available.
Drooling in anticipation of seeing you there.

Anniversary event
I have been going most Wednesday's for a year now and can't praise highly enough

Never fail to get some action unless for done reason you don't want any (why go!!!)

It does now seem to be attracting some younger guys which just add to the fun

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get a good anniversary present

Don't be swayed by the reviews that have been obviously posted by the establishment. The place is in dire need of a complete refurb though that doesn't seem to deter the scores of crusty men that haunt it. Have only managed to find someone suitable once - a closeted copper, who persuaded me to go home with him abd have sex with somone he called his stepson. Adventure over, I have not returned but may do in the future when I'm feeling desperate again

Bilover obviously didn't read the other reviews in much depth! ALL of them rate the place on the older clientele at Pennine and not on it's decor.

OK it is a bit basic, but it is clean and "jumps". If you want private cabins with lockable doors don't bother to go there - you just have to join in with the rest.

It should be pretty obvious that you are not going to find many "twinks" there, but please don't judge the place entirely on your own taste and concede that others may have a more liberal age concept.

Just try it
Went today 25/3 2012. Not been for about 5 years. It's still good. The food is fab and the sex as much as you want. Very friendly and Hughie the boss is brilliant. introduced 2 mates and they can't wait to go back. open 12 to 6 for a tenner but get there on time cos it starts to empty about 4.00. Free parking about 200 metres away. It's good.

The best.
There is no other place to go if you like married, bi, straight-acting, broad shouldered normal men. I've had my best ever fucks here, nothing is more horny than being pounded by a chunky guy wearing a wedding ring while other blokes watch to wait their turn.

From coppers to White van men, they all come here looking for no nonsense quick relief. Particularly from 12 noon on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Good time had...except for...
...two or 3 guys who would not take NO for an answer. One in particular - 3 times I had to tell him 'NO'. On the fourth attempt I decided to leave as this guy was stalking me.

Just wish guys would accept - NO MEANS NO.

Met one really hunky guy there and have been dreaming of him since :-))

Great afternoon
Must concur with the previous reports, had a few hours here a few weeks ago and wow!!!

Im bi and love getting my mouth round a juicy cock. Wasn't disappointed, had my wish within 10 minutes. didn't get much further than one of the 'private' rooms as I was enjoying myself too much but was assured the playrooms are a hive of activity. I'll try them next time

Steam room was too dark to see even the slightest movement but thats not a major issue

Everyone very friendly and very keen to join in

Hopefully this Wednesday there will be a similar chain of events yum yum

Fantastic !
Been there a couple of times now, Wednesday afternoons definately the time to go, get there early to catch the action.

Very much an older, bi macho sort of place. Up the stairs into reception, pay your money and get a towel, into the locker room on the right, get naked, wrap the towel around yourself then into the main lounge area, showers on your right, get cleaned up, sauna and massage area by the showers, lots of action, back into the public area, strictly cover up, recuperate zone, dark room ahead of you second sauna to your left. LOTS of action of any kind you can imagine going on in the dark room, very open and orgiastic public sex with something to satisfy anyone.

If you like casual, no nonsense cock action, and lots of it, look no further.

Add the above to a very nice venue ( what's all this about it being tatty? ), very nice owners, good food and a super relaxed atmosphere, you're not going to beat it.
