Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

I travel to the area usually 3 or 4 times each year & have been visiting for over 15 years.
The facilities have been updated. They are always clean & the staff are regularly seen with mop & bucket cleaning the area. I have never smelt stale urine EVER.
The rest area is on two levels top floor is single mattress beds which you throw your towel over & lay down.
The rooms have been going through an upgrade again these are rest rooms all have locks on the doors for those who require privacy. Some couples like to be watched......so what.
Lots of bi & gay men ???? These usually stick there own kind. I am straight & have never felt uncomfortable or threatened.
Single straight guys not usually an issue but on occasions can intimate couples who wander around from room to room without settling in one . just come to look.
Stick to the rules.
You will have a great time.
See you all latwr in 2014

My girlfriend and I have now visited twice and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Clean, comfortable and warm, with friendly staff. Sam, the owner, is a lovely person who enjoys welcoming people to her spa. There is no inappropriate behaviour, and if you choose to go into the restrooms, that's fine, but if that's not your thing, then don't! If you've never experienced a sauna as it should be done, then BGHS is a perfect place to start.

I read the reviews giving 5 ratings. Where do these people live? I would love to see their home environment if they think bghs is 5 Star. BGHS is something out of the 80's. It has areas ie like the toilets that is poor hygiene. The Sauna smells of urine and the red carpet is like something like my nan used to have in her house!!!! The staff are ok i did not find them rude at all but they are good actors they know what goes on. Go upstairs to what they call the restrooms and now you will find yourselves in a 1970"s porn studio. Couples and same sex acts are taking place in rooms some that hold 2 people some that hold 10. There is human fluids on the floor and on the plastic beds and cushions. There is a list of rules everywhere about saying that the atmosphere is not of a sexual nature. So why do the provide wipes for the beds? Why have rooms that can hold 2 to 10 people? If BGHS read this review perhaps they could post some RECENT pictures of these areas ( toilets, sauna etc) not photoshopped either. I would take the pictures myself but obviously cameras are not allowed. On my visit the place had about 3 customers, but is not a surprise given my feedback. Will walk past next year and see if its still there. I will let you know.

We have been visiting Bristol Gardens for approximately 7 months now and find it very relaxing with a nice friendly atmosphere. Staff are very well trained and indiscreet and above all very polite and friendly. As per other reviews I would like to add this is NOT A SWINGERS CLUB. There are rest rooms which are private buut everywhere else is public. This gets a 5 star rating from us any day of tue week. Keep up the good work Sam and Angie.
