How hot is hot?

As we’re planning on reviewing quite a few saunas we thought it best to come up with a reviewing framework to make sure our judgements are vaguely consistent. So here we go..

Review categories 

  1. Overall sauna experience:   Cold, Warm, Hot, Top Sauna!
  2. Facilities:   Basic, Standard, Excellent
  3. Cost:    £££ (out of three)
1. Overall sauna experience criterion
We’ll judge our total sauna experience based on the following factors:
  • Range of different saunas and facilities
  • Aufguss (sauna shows)
  • Atmosphere
  • Cleanliness
  • Value for money
  • Design
  • Customer service
We’ll arrive at an outcome based on our own experiences.
2. Facilities criterion
  • Basic: a sauna, steam room, shower and changing area.
  • Standard: a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, cold bucket/shower, resting area, changing rooms and drinking water.
  • Excellent: all of the standard facilities with additional sauna and steam rooms, foot spa, aufguss (sauna ‘shows’), and plunge pool.

3. Cost structure

£ = £10 or under
££ = £25 or under
£££ = above £25
We’ll also add a relevant link to Trip Advisor if there is one.
