The Staff Need A Wake Up Call
I used to go to H20 last year until the Manager Chris left. From then it was downhill all the way, The standards of cleanliness were poor and the staff couldn't be bothered. I gave it a try a few days ago and the new Manager was half asleep, couldn't be bothered and the staff were lounging around talking rather than cleaning the place. It could be a really good venue if managed properly. The owners should take a leaf out of Number 52's book and employee friendly helpful staff and ensure there is a srtict cleaning regime.

Good experience
Been a few times now and had a great time evrytime I have been.
The only bad point would be that there is too many older men, I was only really looking for 20-30's n had old men 60's coming on to me all the time.

Interested in meeting fit hung 20-30's for fun in h20 this sat 1/10/11 afternoon

rem sauna
what can i say the place was clean the staff were friendly and free tea and coffee and some snacks. The hot tube with tv was fantastic. and maze was fun. the only bad points smoking area is outside in an alley with no fence so passers bye could see you in a towel. the private rooms down stairs are so dark you bump into things and the lockes were so small i was giffen two of them.

refurbished to a very high standard
This sauna is just an easy walk away from the gay area. It was originally Top2Bottom which has been completely refurbished to a very high standard by it's owners, who also own the Basement in Manchester and the Rembrandt Bar.

The Reception, changing rooms, sauna, bar (with alcoholic drinks), TV lounge and various cabins are on the 1st Floor with the Sauna, maze (rather jokingly made out of perforated metal partitions), Jacuzzi, sling room and porno video room on the ground floor (No videos showing - see review for the Blue Corner). The lighting in most of the sex areas is far too bright and particularly so in the steam room. A few extra towel hooks dotted around would also not go amiss.

Due to only recently opening, the number of visitors was very low, but due to it's high quality facilities and spaciousness it should become popular, but at the time of my visit were middle aged and older. Membership necessary.
