Critical reception

The Radio Times Guide to Films gave the film 3/5 stars, writing: "There's nothing new in the story and the performances of Maxwell Reed and Laurence Harvey have little to commend them. But director Lewis Gilbert's thoroughly nasty atmosphere conjured up in a place dedicated to enjoyment makes this unusually effective movie worth watching."[2]

In British Sound Films: The Studio Years 1928–1959 David Quinlan rated the film as "mediocre", writing: "Gloomy, depressing number; long too."[3]

Leslie Halliwell said: "Glum quickie which was oddly popular."[4]
