Frequently Asked Questions
Covid Entry Requirements. 


All customers are required to use the NHS track and trace app to check-in, or complete a paper copy with your name and contact number. We may also check your temperature using a remote sensor.

Double vaccinated persons are still required to scan the app or provide contact details for track and trace. 

In the summer of 2020 Manticore was extended and refurbished to make the venue covid safe. Whilst we still benefit from the better use of space and increased fresh air ventilation that resulted from the re-furb., other measures such as social distancing or face coverings are now no longer a legal requirement for customers.

However, our staff will continue to wear masks when moving through customer areas, and our workforce undergoes regular covid testing according to NHS guidelines.

Hand-sanitising stations are still provided throughout the venue.  

Our covid-cleaning regimes, which have helped keep the venue clean and safe during 2020 and 2021 are still rigorously adhered to.

What’s the etiquette?
Gay saunas have a long history of being welcoming, safe spaces. You can use the facilities as you wish, providing you are respectful to other users of the Spa and observe current Covid guidelines.

Our full terms and conditions are displayed at reception and also in the changing area.

Manticore Spa reserves the right to refuse  admission, or eject individuals from the venue that present a risk to others or themselves. 

Can I wear items of clothing?

Most guys just use the towel we provide. However, if you wish to wear items of clothing, just let reception know. They will want to verify that what you wish to wear will be safe and hygienic whilst on premises. 

What about safer sex issues?

Information and safer-sex packs are available onsite. We will continue to offer sexual health testing with the Eddystone Trust. Details of dates and times of testing will be made available soon. 

Any age restrictions?

Yes, you need to be over 18 to enter. Please bring ID, passport or driving licence, to verify your age and qualify for reduced price entry.
