Visited Sunday afternoon prior to my business trip to Paris. Very welcoming staff on arrival and great buffet selection- only wish I’d have had a bit longer as it took 55 minutes getting through security however good experience and for sure would book in again.

Visited the lounge with a friend, very busy and tables that were free had dirty dishes. I get the staff are under pressure as the lounge is big, but seeing as people spend £19-£25 to visit I think it's only fair that they employed more...More

Brill escape from all the kids running round the airport. Well worth the money considering you spend £15 on breakfast and a pint in the airport usually. Pastries all fresh and tasty. Fizz on tap and lovely friendly host/hostess. Will defo use in future
