Whenever my girlfriend comes to town she makes me go to the baths The price cannot be beat and the treatment is authentic to the times Of course you could find a more modern bath but this place takes you back in time

We took advantage of the whole experience and had a great time. Huge thick porcelain tubs with old fashioned water jet. Sits bath was a little weird but unique experience. We loved the needle shower and massages. Nice day!

My understanding is the Buckstaff follows tradition and ladies with the ladies and men with men. This place is nice and I believe you will enjoy the traditional experience.
