Can all men use the male changing room.

Health and Safety: Nappies - There is a nappy bin in the ladies changing room only. Please only dispose of nappies in the correct bin and NOT the general waste bin, alternatively take your nappies home to dispose of. Please ensure you supervise your child at all times. The Cheltenham Chase Hotel has anti slip mats within the changing rooms, however poolside can become wet and slippery. Please do not use the benches in the main changing room to change your baby. We advise you bring a changing mat and change your baby on the floor or use the pull down changer in the righthand corner cubicle.
