Excellent experience

It's our first time to use this lounge and it's was a great experience. The staff were amazing and they looked after us really well. Coffee was perfect and the corn fritter I had taste really good! They have excellent facilities while you wait for your flight. Wifi is fast and their toilet facilities are super clean! I would highly recommend this lounge to every one.

Perfect space

A great place to relax away from the crowds before your flight. Good selection of fresh food and beverages and some comfortable areas to while away those pre flight hours. Will definitely be visiting this lounge again.
