“Look closely first and think!”

Written on: 27/10/2016 by MickyVard (1 review written)

I was sold a trial month at Banatynes Eastbourne, having discussed my health issues heavily and not really wanting to take on a full membership until I knew whether I would be able to exercise or not. I liked the idea of a Personal Trainers advise on exercise for my condition. However, that was more money and turned out not to be a bad decision. I took my medical records which were ignored and was shown exercises my Dr's strictly told me NOT to do. That was my first days experience, after that… Read Full Review

“Not again”

Written on: 20/07/2016 by AaravMcClanahan (1 review written)

£40 a month to use a dirty gym when you can pay £10 for other gyms nearby. Wish I had not signed up now. Nhs discount not for casual contract they try to tie you down for at least 12months to get the discount. When you want to cancel your contract they ignore your cancellation emails, fob you off on the phone- then when you try to cancel it face to face the staff are sat in the office eating mars bars and looking at you like you are some sort of alien- cannot seem to grasp the concept that… Read Full Review

“enjoying my time ”

Written on: 17/07/2016 by vampireje9 (1 review written)

I went to join up to the Blackpool gym as I wanted to get healthier...personally I think people are being very picky about this gym, many issues are due to their own personal annoyance at something or someone and not the fault of the gym or staff themselves. When I signed up I did it online. I was told id have an introduction, unfortunately I wasn't given this BUT as the gym is simple and well signed and the equipment is ticket science I get by perfectly fine (unsure how others have struggled)… Read Full Review

“Discreasful”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by MatthewSanders93 (1 review written)

As a company you are just a big joke. I have tried to cancel my membership for over 5months now with no success. I have phoned your team for hours on end trying to fix this. Staff say there is no managers to complain to and will only call at extremely inappropriate hours. I told mt membership had been cancel and now your charging me even though I don't even life near the place any more. I wouldn't recommend you to any sport associations let alone friends and family. I wouldn't come near you… Read Full Review

“Appalling customer service! Family unfriendly! ”

Written on: 04/06/2016 by Pearson221 (1 review written)

Just had the most appalling experience in Ingleby Barwick. How do you treat a customer this? Had a staff member order me out of the pool because my daughter dared delay in getting out of the pool after being informed it wasn't children's swimming time! Cancelled my membership and will consider putting in a complaint. Act like children are a plague! Very very upset… Read Full Review

“Bad from beginning to end”

Written on: 08/05/2016 by RihannaCorcoran (1 review written)

The Hastings Bannatyne gym is bad in every respect. In the induction session, I was shown only the basics of using the machines – NOT including the safety features. I wasn’t offered any fitness programme. New members are supposed to be offered a welcome pack including a towel, but these were out of stock when I joined. The music is stressful; can’t be more specific about that, as I don’t even recognize the genre. They often vacuum the carpet during opening hours. When you’re running… Read Full Review

“Bannatyne's Gym Crewe”

Written on: 01/04/2016 by LiliaDonahue409 (1 review written)

I'm feed up with the selfish bunch of women swimmers who hog the pool lanes in the morning. They are going EVERY day (even que up to ensure first in) and swimming from 6am when the gym opens for getting on for nearly 2 hours at a time (leaving just before 8am)! Seeing how there are only two lanes this is very unfair to anyone else who wants to have a lane swim before work in the peak period. It's almost impossible to swim in the non laned pool area due to slow swimmers and pool walkers. Do they… Read Full Review

“Awful membership 'services'”

Written on: 29/03/2016 by tankgal (1 review written)

I thought I had found the solution to my gym connundrum in Bannatynes. I travel all over the country with work so this company seemed ideal particularly as they have pools and sauna facilities. I signed up and after a busy night shift at work turned up the next day. Upon enquiring in greater depth about facilites available in other areas I was very disappointed to find I was not going to receive what I thought I had signed up for. I currently work in Norfolk but will be returning to work in… Read Full Review

manager and female member of staff bullying and not allowing members to use the equipment they need to use, tittle tattling amongst themselves,very cleeky!!!!!unproffesional the staff don't know which is the correct equipment to be used from one bag to the next which I think is quite amusing why would a boxer use a martial arts kick bag?????? and to be told a fitness class is priority and if you are on the bags you need to come off the bags well that will never happen!!!!!! as long as I pay my… Read Full Review

“Bespoke Customer Service”

Written on: 11/03/2016 by Wood64 (1 review written)

Bannatynes staff are the most Professional, Efficient, Courteous and Diplomatic in the Service industry in Fife and non comparable in the Kingdom. This includes Spa , Reception, Fitness , Gym and Housekeeping! Nothing is too much trouble, and as a team effort they give 100% . Always a welcoming 'hello how are you' , a smile and never grumpy. Also confidential and friendly , and will go the extra mile to help the customer. I cannot speak highly enough and think the staff make this club what it… Read Full Review

“Not acceptable”

“Amazing spa day”

Written on: 17/01/2016 by GabrielWhite (1 review written)

First time me and the misses had been to a spa and I have to say we both loved it. We got an offer on groupon for £99 which included use of all the facilities and three massages. We chose to have the facial, scalp and Swedish massage and left the rooms feeling light and ultimately relaxed. The masseuses met us with smiles and welcoming attitudes and where more than helpful in finding out what we wanted out of the massages most. After, we got changed and went down to the spa area which… Read Full Review

“Its all about the profit , members aren't important.”

Written on: 06/01/2016 by AdrielClark (1 review written)

This lot recently took over the privately owned Clarice House spa and gym near Colchester. Within a few weeks the gym size has been reduced to produce a new unnecessary studio, turnstiles have been installed to treat members like cattle rather than being met by the reception and conditions of membership are being changed for the existing loyal members who made the place worth buying in the firstt place. A real shame that a large group like Bannatyne is being allowed to ruin a health spa and… Read Full Review

“Potential member”

Written on: 01/01/2016 by Gcvieira (1 review written)

My wife and I recently moved to Chafford Hundred and were very excited to join the local Bannatyne's gym club, but when making an enquiry over the phone, we spoke to someone who certainly had no customer service skills or training and sounded very rude, also giving short NO answers to our questions. For a well-known and prestigious gym, we were expecting a better service, it all starts with customer service. Reading the other reviews we are just another couple who are not joining... May… Read Full Review

poor staff, spend most of the time huddled round reception avoidng what they get paid for, if they are asked a question its like you are spoiling their gossip. opening times over christmas are designed around the staff and not the customers. standards are poor and the staff click from long standing staff need breaking up to get new staff with energy and passion. spent all that money on new equipment and its wasted by poor staff… Read Full Review

“I joined Bannatyne Health club recently, before I...”

Written on: 04/12/2015 by Elisabeth115 (1 review written)

I joined Bannatyne Health club recently, before I signed to membership manager was so nice and promised they have fantastic facilities and all the gym was recently refurbished. Well, it didn't look like it at all. What I found out is totally opposite, the stuff doesn't give a **** after you signed the membership. To the queries they reply to leave the note into suggestion box. The roof in the changing room is floating leaving your clothes all dirty, smelly and wet. Also, the price was gone… Read Full Review
