A fabulous gym with a really friendly atmosphere. Over the past years they've worked hard to improve the facilities and they provide up to date equipment covering all aspects of health and fitness. The staff are so supportive and knowledgeable without pushing themselves on you. More and more updates are coming to improve the membership - well worth it!

Club remains unkempt as previous reviews suggest. Worst still is the behaviour of the staff who are rude on a good day management don't deal with complaints. Avoid at all costs

If you read the other reviews on the various websites about the gym they all say the same – Dirty, smelly, bad location, faulty towers – I feel this encompasses how I feel too. My family and I will be looking for a new gym that does not take for granted its members but actually wants to keep members happy. So people please look elsewhere for a health club that is simply cleaner better managed and uses its membership fees better.

I came into the Beechdown Club as a guest of a member (you have to, it's strictly members-only) and my immediate impression as we drove into the car park was not favourable. Everywhere looked clean and well-kept but the external walls were clearly of 1980's squash court origins and the place looked sprawling. However, never have my initial imporessions changed so quickly once I entered the Club. The staff were all smart and friendly and all had a 'cant do enough for you' attitude. The place itself is like a tardis, I thought once I'd seen the gym, squash courts and the superb indoor pool/spa cantre that would be the extent of the facilities. but then there was badminton, tennis, outdoor fitness track and Oh how I wish I'd had my kids with me because they'd have loved the creches and indoor play zones. Part of the restaurant was closed for refurbishment, but if the plans on show are anything to go by the new food and beverage area will be sensational. Overall, one of the best health clubs I've been to. It's nice to go to a Club with that intimate, friendly feel....even though you're an outsider, you can still appreciate it.

The worst club I have ever visited - dodgy location, shabby 1980s style building and appalling customer service. Like Fawlty Towers. Avoid at all costs.
