“David Lloyd Worthing”

Written on: 11/06/2014 by CharlotteBolton (1 review written)

I am a member at David Lloyd in Worthing, West Sussex. It costs approx £850 a year membership. It is a relatively new building. I use the gym three or four times a week. I think the price is much too expensive for what they offer. I doubt I will be renewing my membership. I think David Lloyd lacks moral courage by trying to lock people into contracts with three month notice periods and a raft of silly petty minded exclusions and trip up clauses to extend the notice period even more. Do… Read Full Review

if you're not renewing, make sure you let them know in plenty of time to cancel, otherwise they'll charge you minimum of 3 months to get oit of the contract.

“Worst Company ”

Written on: 08/06/2014 by Sullivan141 (1 review written)

Joining David Lloyd is one of the worst decisions of my life. I spent nearly 2000 pound and service what i got is horrible. Customer service is poor, Only efficient staff they have works in payment and sales department, in the rest of the department they don’t have either staff or short staff. Regional director Russell also takes his own sweet time to reply on complain. I strongly recommend not to use this club .. it is big no no..... they force you to do something which is you are not… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by Nothingnow (1 review written)

Arrogant staff , uninformed, do not care. I have wasted nearly one thousand pounds on a rubbish organising. The pools are not clean, and during school holidays children and babies are in the pool throughout the day. The out door pool is difficult to get out as it is totally vertical and you have to really pull yourself out and after a certain age this is not easy. This is not a club to join if you are over 25… Read Full Review

“Poor treatment of members”

Written on: 31/05/2014 by rhianloughin (1 review written)

My mother came down from Scunthorpe to Bristol for half-term and on Saturday 31st May at 9:30 a.m. we went to David Lloyd, Long Ashton, Bristol to watch my daughter play tennis. My mother was not permitted to enter as a 'social guest' because it was peak-time and there would be capacity issues in the Clubroom. We spoke to several staff members with the most senior member being a young man in his mid twenties. He spoke of a clause in the terms and conditions and of 4 newsletters that had been… Read Full Review

“Declining standards at David Lloyd gym”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by MicaelaPierce318 (1 review written)

I have been a member for 13 years and stay for the regular classes and friends made. Issues have increased over the years : Cleaning showers when busy classes are finishing Over hot changing facilities with no air-con Above inflation rises each year when most people are on pay freezes Unpopular over-priced and minute portions allegedly healthy food Endless open days and weekends for people with no respect for the club and members, guaranteeing packed facilities Summer only memberships so every… Read Full Review

“Basildon facilities are good but badminton is not”

Written on: 28/05/2014 by sallyfields2014 (3 reviews written)

The badminton facilities as Basildon are ok however couple of little issues. Firstly the people who use the courts to play soft racket ball go all over the courts and disrupt play, they also leave the nets down at the wrong height. The second thing is that the lights should have some type of covers on them as when aiming for the shuttlecock it glares in your eyes and you cant see where the shuttlecock is. Other than that the other facilities are good, gym equipment is a bit dated but changing… Read Full Review

“Extremely Poor Badminton Facilities”

Written on: 28/05/2014 by MakenaTaylor-Alt1980 (1 review written)

David Lloyds describes itself as a raquet members club which has 1000+ badminton courts across the UK. However if you have ever played at the finchley club you will know the facilities are terrible. - The floor is Carpet - bad for your knees to play on - There is a lack of lighting - There are tennis court lines across the court causing confusion Badminton players at the finchley club are treated like second class citizens in comparison to the tennis players. I would strongly recommend… Read Full Review

“Inflexible Organisation”

Written on: 14/05/2014 by Lawrence88 (1 review written)

Many of my local members are very upset about a change in booking policy for tennis courts. A new inflexible system has been imposed without consultation making it much more awkward to book courts. It also means those who can't say definitely who will partner them 8 days hence can't book a court, previously it was possible to book a court and sort out possible opponents in the coming week. Furthermore those who wish to use a court for practising serving or take a ball feeder machine can no… Read Full Review

Astaniland's Comment

Written on: 25/05/2014

I am a member of the Bromsgrove David Lloyd. Totally agree that this policy is inflexible and does not serve loyal members well. Also found out today that you will receive a strike for not using a booked court even if it is pouring with rain. Poor weather no shows "Too difficult to manage" apparently.
Absolutely ridiculous.

“Should you work or spend money here?”

Written on: 02/05/2014 by Addison1979 (1 review written)

Should you work here? Only if you just want a horrifc job that messes you about and allows you to use their lackluster facilities. Everyone who works agrees at how terrible it is. Everything is over priced, hours change constantly, they never follow through on contracts and have placed many in debt by messing with their hours and being full of excuses. Should you go there? Well with staff treated so badly could you expect them to be that friendly? The steam room and sauna are never cleaned so… Read Full Review

“Gym in Decline!”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by 136Kearns (1 review written)

I am a member Fulham Broadway. This gym has been on the decline for the last say around 12 months. machines very slow to be repaired or completely discarded no replacement! free weights were short! so you need to look for them there is never enough! lack of staff to clean up and tidy! Then the Manager changed 3 months ago, so we were all hopeful! The new manager is very focused on a new floor plan and has for the second time on 2 months moved everything around his first attempt BAD! his second… Read Full Review

“DL reading are totally unfair!”

Written on: 27/04/2014 by Aldox294 (1 review written)

My friend & I started a 14 day trial in Reading, Berkshire from Thursday 17th April 2014 to 30th April 2014. We both joined to try out the pool & other wet facilities. On out first day of membership after we had paid, we found out that the club had a free entry for the public all bank holiday weekend (18th to 21st April). We were not told this & I had to call to ask why as we would not have joined for the full 14 days & paid. Then to add to our misery the steam room was out of commission due… Read Full Review

“Do not join David Lloyd under any circumstances”

Written on: 26/03/2014

I can only talk of the Lincoln branch, but their customer services are horrendous and they won't let you leave. I have been given 3 different dates now for ending my membership - I agreed with the first one I was given; 3 months notice (even though my initial membership agreement did not demand this 3 months) and they insist I owe them money when I have not used their facilities for months, gave them due notice, then ended payments - and they've been harassing me ever since with threats of… Read Full Review

“Money is what they care about, not customers!”

Written on: 11/03/2014 by rqLacroix1982 (1 review written)

David Lloyd's marketing strategy is to make its centers look extravagant compared to standard leisure centres, that is their only selling point. Their staff members are misguided and on few occasions have provided me with wrong information regarding membership. I gave my flexible members 1 month notice a month ago when they messed up and continued to charge me even though they told me they would cancel my membership automatically after three months, now the idiots are saying my notice period… Read Full Review

“Cancellation Notice”

Written on: 26/02/2014

Where do I start, Mum and Dad signed up for David LLoyd at the Cheam branch in 2013 on a 12 months membership. The facilities are good, however please be aware of David LLoyds tactics when it comes to selling these memberships. Throughout the meeting the advisor constantly talk about 12 months without the mention of a cancellation period, instead he has ticked beside a box that says '3 months'. (Not in the box) Now, I have never signed up to a David LLoyd gym so don't know the difference… Read Full Review

“Child told off for having a sandwich at the canteen”

I have to say most of the staff is very pleasant. However, I hay over a 1000£ just to have my membership for my child to play tennis, I do not use the gym. My child was nibbling on a sandwich that I made for him (he has food allergies). A waitress approached my 5 year old and told him off. Extraordinary… Read Full Review

“Complete lack of customer awareness”

Written on: 24/02/2014

Having decided over the weekend to finally take the plunge and join the gym, I discover that David Lloyd Warrington makes the most sense, geographically. So, I call them up to ask about their membership costs, and their peak and off peak operating times, as the website only states that off peak is after 4pm. The receptionist tells me that the person I need to speak to is currently on a call and would it be ok for her to call me back. I explained that I just need to know your prices and… Read Full Review
