This is our review of Aspire lounge at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Reader Bill kindly sent in this some photographs and a brief review of the Aspire Lounge at Liverpool John Lennon Airport:
EDIT: This lounge was refurbished in 2018. Our review of the refurbished Aspire lounge at Liverpool airport is here.
“The Aspire Lounge at Liverpool Airport is located inside the departure lounge after security on the lower level. You pass it on the way to all gates so it can’t be missed.
As you can see, is a modern facility with a wide range of seating – and not overcrowded at 7pm.
Hot and cold snacks include cheese, crackers, soup, cookies, popcorn & crisps. Drink options from the bar – which is not self service – include a selection of Fullers beers.
I visited the Aspire Lounge at around 7pm – 1 hour before closing. They had moved everything from above the fridges onto the tables …..
…… so that the cleaners could come in and do a clean from 8pm.
Flight information screens display boarding information but no announcements are made.
Newspapers and magazines are available at the reception.
All in all, this is a surprisingly modern facility for a regional airport. If you have a Priority Pass or Lounge Club card it is well worth a visit. Paid entry is also available from £18.99 with discounts for children and senior citizens.”
Thanks Bill. If you want to book a space in the Liverpool Airport Aspire lounge in advance, you can do it on the Aspire website here.
