Frequently Asked Questions


How does Covid-safe work in a Sauna?

Use the NHS track and trace app to check-in, or fill in our paper copy with your name and contact number. We'll also remotely check your temperature prior to admission. 

Manticore has been extended and rebuilt to enable social distancing. A one way flow system is in operation, and is clearly signed to enable you to move through premises maintaining 2m social distancing. Hand-sanitiser is available throughout the venue. Cabins can be requested, and are deep cleaned prior to every use. Manticore recommends the wearing of face-masks and these are available from reception. 

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 to individuals that may 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 is 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.
