“Greedy Management - Poor Values - Newhaven”

Written on: 26/09/2013 by julianyoung (2 reviews written)

Contract lawyers would have a hard time with Lloyds' contracts, the real kick comes however when you cancel. Extremely poor communication when it comes to their policies, they will never point out what you are doing, they will let you make the mistake then point at the contract. Disgusting, greedy, bordering on evil, steer well clear. Oh and don't bother complaining, local management are a lot more humane and personable than their head office, but at the end of the day local management still… Read Full Review

“David Lloyd bromsgrove ”

Written on: 25/09/2013 by Cola6971 (1 review written)

I have been a member of David Lloyd bromsgrove with my 3 year old son since february 2013 although I think it is expensive as a lone parent with no special rates unless you are in a couple the club is fantastic for families . The service I have received is exceptional and staff are always happy to help. I have been a member of different clubs over the years but have to say how great it is to see the manager of the club in public view alking to members and staff every day ... I would definitely… Read Full Review

“nice but a bit overpriced”

Written on: 19/09/2013 by xklhpxgm (1 review written)

In short, David Lloyd Manchester/ Trafford is a nice gym but a bit overpriced for what you actually get. Pros: The best changing rooms and shower facilities I've used Plently of machines and weights Outdoor pool in the summer Cons: The receptionists don't acnowledge you or say hello/ goodbye People swimming slowly/ doing breaststroke in the pool's fast lane Range Rovers parked across two spaces in the car park Poser/ snobby clientle - don't expect anyone to hold a door open for you… Read Full Review

“Reading DL”

Written on: 28/08/2013 by plinius6 (1 review written)

The two words review: "massively overpriced". When I had been quoted the price at first, I was sure there was a mistake, as it was 2.5 more than anyone else. (for the record, £78) To make things a bit more passable, the sales guy offered 12 months for 10 which made things just barely good enough for me to sign up. However, it turned out that I've been lied to (maybe there are better ways to describe this, but they would detract from the truth). Apparently he did not pass that to the head… Read Full Review

“Teesside - Lifeguards are a disgrace”

Written on: 27/08/2013

Having been a member of Teesside for several years I have noticed a massive down slide in the quality of the lifeguards at this gym. The older guys seem to take the job seriously but the younger ones are there for a chat and the sun around the outside pool. I have witnessed one particular lifeguard sat with his cap on back to front ( very professional, NOT, but he obviously thinks he looks cool ) regularly texting on his phone whilst supposedly watching a pool full of children. The same guy… Read Full Review

“Horrendous”

Written on: 20/08/2013

Took 3 month's membership for the 4 year old. All kids activities during day time only. Not letting wife to drop/pick him up. Not allowing wife as social guest. Basically not following their own T&C and not allowing to cancel. Coercing wife to take membership too. When I questioned it, reply was "we force 98% of members to take family/wife membership, this is our business model, this is how we make money". Aberdeen managers arrogant and intimidating… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2013

I used to be a member at a David Lloyd up North and noticed loads of non members using the club under the guise of "just dropping of kids". Why should non members get access when members pay fees! Why didn't you just join your wife?

“NEVER JOIN A DAVID LLOYD GYM”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by cantbreathe (1 review written)

If you are thinking about joining a David LLoyd join STOP!! They are criminals using the gym as a front. Extremely unfair contracts that lock you in a spiral that forces you to keep on paying them. When you try to cancel they force another 3 months of payments on you. Non stop payments when you try to cancel AVOID DAVID LLOYD GYMS LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT!… Read Full Review

“Cafe staff treat members with DISDAIN-Newcastle David...”

Written on: 14/08/2013

The staff receive no training in customer relations. Although there are 1 or 2 who smile and politely ask of customers requirements the rest are almost disdainful of members.In particular one young male cafe staff lad sits in the lounge seats(texting and on his lap top) and only gets up to serve at the bar area as and when customers approach the area. Saturday 9th August form 3 pm!! The most enthusiasm seen from staff is when the membership team are trying to recruit new members, who get a… Read Full Review

“Money grabbers”

Written on: 11/08/2013

Money taken off my account straight away on the same day of the application. For personal reasons I had to change my plans so asked for the refund and withdrew my application the very next day. Then, the grief started! (I didn't even use the gym or any other services). I had to contact the Head Office... only to find out that the refund was not even processed by the very people I was talking over and over again! The contract states that I have the right to change my mind in 7 days, but I… Read Full Review

“Cheam NOT SO Dream Team!!!!!”

Written on: 01/08/2013 by photosoph (1 review written)

I always deem people who write on these review sites sad - but I have to write on here to stop people joining this gym!! I have been a member of David Lloyd Cheam for 7 years - there has not been one year where the air conditioning has been working in the summer and its unbearable to work out in meaning there were lots of times I had to leave & the gym was empty. On a number of occasions a year the centre will shut at 2pm so that nonsuch school can have an open day and use the carpark and… Read Full Review

“Excellent club...but be smart before joining!”

Written on: 06/07/2013

I just joined the Glasgow West End one a week ago, and because DL is considerably more expensive than other gyms I had to think long and hard about joining and decided to do my research by looking at websites like this. I agree with other posters that the 3 month notice period isn't made that clear by the membership staff who appear to be on commission and desperate to make a sale. That said, I'm very glad I joined, it's an excellent facility and it is totally geared towards people like me… Read Full Review

What is the actual monthly amount for two adults and two kids. Live round the corner from the Glasgow West End one and they are offering a free trial week just now and then flexible membership options. I was quoted £135 per month with a £90 joining fee a few months back.

“New members for 2013”

Written on: 28/06/2013

My wife and joined the Exeter David Lloyd a few months age because we were fed up with. Our local swimming pool facilities. What we did not expect was the perfect and see less service we have received so far. We are now regular and frequent users of the gym because of the patient and helpful approach of the trainers. We are more often than not welcomed as we walk through the door and given a cheery good bye as we leave. The three month notice period was clearly explained and time was taken… Read Full Review

“contemptuous treatment of members”

Written on: 27/06/2013

Do not join any DL Gym ! They are happy to charge extortionate fees but then treat you like dirt. My experiences at the Southampton club include removal of other peoples monies from my bank account, dirty gym & even dirtier changing rooms. TV screens not working, equipment lying around creating a hazard & ignored by gym staff as they stand around chatting. Complaints to management (I use that term loosely) are ignored & when I have attempted to elicit a response as a follow up I am expected to… Read Full Review

“Great club in Farnham”

Written on: 26/06/2013

I wanted to post something positive here as all the moaners seem to be adding comments. I had a great experience at Farnham... Great staff and a great PT in Matt. The club is brand new and has great facilities. Yes it's a 12 month contract but you know that at the start... Just like a mobile phone. The reception team are lovely and so are the spa therapists. I love the Friday night spa socials. All in all a pretty good gym… Read Full Review

“Dirty swimming pool ”

Written on: 23/06/2013

The swimming pool water at the Fulham Broadway branch is often quite dirty - with lots of suspended dirt in the water. It is often not possible to see from one side of the pool to the other, due to all the dirt (e.g. makeup, bodily fluids) in the water. Furthermore the water has a strangely unpleasant bitter taste. I have told the staff this on multiple occassions. One member of staff was very helpful, whilst on another occassion a different member of staff was rude, arrogant and dismissive… Read Full Review
