“THE MOST HORRIBLE PLACE TO WORK AT”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by RubenCross324 (1 review written)

During the time I was working here (over a year) I saw about 20-30 people including the whole management team change. The poor management style, always understaffed, always being bullied and pressured to do duties outside of your job description for no extra pay is definitely something to think about when applying for a job. This company has the worst management I have seen in my life. No prospects at the company unless you know someone. Always working overtime. Working 30-50 hours a week is… Read Full Review

“Dishonest ”

Written on: 12/05/2017 by 14Prater (1 review written)

Don't ever go to the David Lloyd club. I would choose anytime fitness who are not far or the Village where the equipment is newer and the staff are great they really make you feel like you are family. I joined the David Lloyd a long time ago when It first opened and the staff were nice and the people who went there were nice. But it has slowly gone down hill. I rejoined in June 2016 where David Lloyd did a new 3 month membership with a 1 month cancellation. I spoke to someone who said yes no… Read Full Review

“terrible and frankly rude”

Written on: 14/03/2017 by ozGreer105 (1 review written)

I am NOT surprised that the building in Portsmouth Port Solent is mostly empty as my experience of them is terrible. on 3 occasions, their sales staff didn't even bother to call me back. when i DID manage to speak to someone and went in to see the place, the staff member didn't apologise, had the enthusiasm of a wet rag and didn't even want to show me how equipment was used. I DID complain to their head office, with a promised response from the GM. That was about 2 weeks ago and nothing yet… Read Full Review

“Turned back at the reception”

Written on: 04/01/2017 by Grady194 (1 review written)

Extremely disappointed at being turned back 1 hour before the closing time because they are not letting anyone in an hour before the communicated closing time. I pay a premium for the facilities as compared to other gyms and this is how my time is disrespected. And I am not disappointed at having policies, major disappointment at advertising a time that people can see online before getting ready and driving all the way over, only to find out a new time and policy at the reception. I do not… Read Full Review

“Crippling and disproportionate fee increases”

Written on: 28/12/2016 by Sassyparella (1 review written)

DL have yet again increased its prices for 2017. To be a member of Raynes Park excluding racquets is now a monumental £106 per month up from £100.75 per month during 2016. Shocking! They obviously wish to fleece their so called affluent membership set. The club has become elitist down south but seems more reasonably priced up North. Their pricing strategy needs a major overhaul… Read Full Review

“David Lloyd Epsom Appalling”

Written on: 07/12/2016 by ShannonO'Donnell (1 review written)

The classes are all full and in 3 months I wasn't able to do a Pilates class on a Wednesday. Staff on desk helpful but unable to sort out problem. Contracted a skin disease - manager assures me is very common and that their cleanliness is second to none. Asked for full 3 month refund - was told I was patronising him ! I am 63 with arthritis and my husband is 72 with cancer . There is no apology or refund . Beware . Their actions speak for themselves… Read Full Review

“Overcrowded club in Chigwell ”

Written on: 17/11/2016 by McClanahaned135 (1 review written)

You would never think you were in a private club when you arrive and cannot park as it is so overcrowded. Classes are so full in the early morning 9.00 ish that you cannot get weights or a mat run out! All they want is more members and more money never mind the quality!… Read Full Review

The fees have gone up in London too. My local club for 2017 is now charging £106 per month! Shocking!

“Unprofessional cleaner ”

Written on: 26/10/2016 by Foleypc154 (1 review written)

I go to the David Lloyd on kingswood in hull, I really do love everything about it and the 500K redo has made it even more better, but I have one complaint and I'm hoping someone sees this and puts me to rest, there's a teenager girl cleaner who's roughly there at 4pm onwards, she is constantly staring inappropriately at me and my boyfriend and every time we see her, she tries to push her b.u.m out as much as she can to grab my boyfriends attention and she even pulls her leggings up so they… Read Full Review

“Worst service for first time trials of the gym...”

Written on: 16/08/2016 by PaitynRoth37 (1 review written)

I went to this gym a week ago I anniesland first of all I waited like twenty minutes after the reception lady knowing that I was here with my cousin for first time trials of just the sauna and steam. The person that was supposed to be dealing with me and my cousin was only about 10 feet from where I was waiting and the lady notified him twice or thrice that we were there. At this point if he didn't walk out I would have left. He came out didn't even attempt to be nice and present himself as a… Read Full Review

It was worse for a mixed race woman last week she was threatened by a bunch of thugs and the manager of the gym you would think that the gym would have suspended them....no they suspended her!

“unfair contract terms”

Written on: 23/07/2016 by leecottrill (1 review written)

Disgraceful how they unfairly treat customers with contracts. Be VERY careful to read your terms & conditions before you join this gym. If you don't cancel in time in the last month of your initial contract then they then sign you up to a further 3 months which you can't get out of. This is considered 'unfair' practice by the government's Office of Fair Trading which states : “8.1 A clause which states how long a contract has to run is likely to be among its most important 'core' terms. If a… Read Full Review

“David Lloyd Leeds, rip off to the maximum”

Written on: 21/07/2016 by Marinq402 (1 review written)

After a one million pound refurb in Aug 2015 you would think that what you pay in fees would more than enable the manager to allow air conditioning throughout the club instead of switching it of totally to save money, this is on top of a poorly maintained building that still has leeks in the roof, especially over the tennis and badminton courts. Hard working staff throughout the club, reception, cleaning crew, food etc but GM and otger managers leave something to be desired. Council run gym… Read Full Review

“David Lloyd Cheadle - customers come last”

Written on: 05/07/2016 by cheadleblue (2 reviews written)

If you're the sort of person who likes paying maximum prices for poor customer service then David Lloyd Cheadle is probably for you. The management couldn't care less about the members and consistently ignore any issues raised. It all seems glossy when you do your inspection tour, but once you're a member you'll find that the nice gym equipment doesn't get maintained. You end up reporting issues but they don't get fixed. Ironically they ask for feedback frequently, but I guess unless it's… Read Full Review

“If I could give them less I woyld”

Written on: 24/06/2016 by Kadence333 (1 review written)

I'm sorry but David Lloyd are nothing but a monet machine that want to take ur fees but not do things properly. Be wary when signing contracts as they don't explain the details properly and u could end up with late cancellation fees and debt collectors letters and an ear full of their lies about stuff they have done when actually they haven't. Read the review sites and pay heed to the warnings!!… Read Full Review

“Simply don't care”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by zeKerr31 (1 review written)

Poorly managed at local, regional and national level. This is always the last DL club in the country to "benefit" from the company's improvements scheme. The most recent harebrained "exciting developments" announced include the breathtakingly Baldrickian concept of permanently turning a championship-quality glass squash court into a claustrophobic Spin studio. A lose-lose situation if ever there was one: competitive squash will die at the club after one of the most successful decades of growth… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed with Stevenage David Lloyd gym”

Written on: 15/04/2016 by luMaxwell396 (1 review written)

It's easier to mention the few good points about the gym as the bad points I could write a book. The gym could be so much better but what a major disappointment. £47 per month . Joining/admin fee £40 ,Minimum year contract. Cancellation requires 3-4 months notice in writing. 20 pages of terms and conditions is a disgrace. Gym equipment is not being maintained properly. Only one good squat rack . Equipment in weight area for a commercial gym is a bit budgety. It's a sign of penny… Read Full Review
