“Fantastic relaxing experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

Just experienced the Turkish Baths for the first time and it was wonderful! Yes it is in need of some refurbishment but the atmosphere is superb and the staff are so friendly and helpful. When they told me about the closure plans I was appalled. This is a place with history which should not be lost! I for one would promise support to anyone who wants to demonstrate against the closure !!

“A fabulous treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

This is an amaizing find. The sauna and pool are just amaizing. I have heard that there are threats to close this pool and sauna down. That would be a mistake. There are so few places like this in the country. The sauna is like stepping back into the Victorian era and is such a relaxing space. Long live the city pool and sauna!!

“Nice atmosphere but run down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

The main attraction is the friendliness of the staff and other swimmers. On the downside the place needs a major refurbishment. The pool is well past its sell by date and it is no small wonder that Newcastle Council has revealed plans to close the City Pool. Nevertheless I like the place as on a Tuesday morning there is no problems with crowding and everyone is very courteous.

“Excellent with a package”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

If you get one of the active Newcastle cards this is great value and the hot stone massage is very good for £15. Sauna and steam room facilites good and pool is a decent size but can get very crowded at times.
