Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 40 reviews

It was excellent. Signing in at reception was so easy. The service personnel took his time to explain everything. As soon as I sat down there was an attendant ‘ Keith’ who came over & made sure I was comfortable then went ahead & brought me some champagne. Followed by the menu. The food was with me in no time at all. Had access to the shower room to change into something warm for my trip to UK. Really excellent experience. Can’t fault anything.

I was exhausted and fed up with a mess up on my booking so I decided at the last minute to book the virgin lounge and try and relax. It was fantastic from the calm, welcoming service to the food and facilities (shower)

Such a pleasant lounge, friendly helpful staff, awesome food & drinks! Highly recommend visiting while you're waiting for your flight! Money well spent

Great package. Don’t forget to restrict data on other apps on your phone so you don’t run through this quickly

The SIM card worked quickly and also connected to the net quickly.
