This is our review of the Aspire Executive Lounge at Bristol Airport.
In order to complete our collection of reviews of airport lounges across the UK, we’ve asked for the help of our readers.
Reader Wendy kindly sent us a review of the Aspire Executive Lounge at Bristol Airport. We have previously covered the other lounge at Bristol, Aspire Plus, in this review.
You can find all of our other UK airport lounge reviews here. We’re making good progress now!
Over to Wendy:
“The Aspire Lounge at Bristol Airport is located on the upper level past security and through the duty free shop. (Below is an official photo from the Executive Lounges website). The AspirePlus lounge is nearby – this ‘premium’ lounge requires you to a pay a £10 cash supplement if you want to get access via Priority Pass or Lounge Club.
Whilst I have never been in AspirePlus, I was perfectly happy in the main Aspire lounge and didn’t see any need to pay the additional £10. The Aspire lounge was quiet with plenty of free seats even though the airport itself was very busy.
There was a glass front with view into the main airport area which, to be honest, wasn’t very exciting.
Food and Drinks
There was a range of wines (two reds and two whites) and spirits (the usual mainstream brands) as well as beers. Alcholic drinks must be ordered from the bar …..
…. or you can help yourself at the self-service area where you can get tea/coffee and soft drinks.
As my flight was in the afternoon the menu consisted of a cream tea, hot pasta dish, ham, cheese, olives, snacks and fresh rolls. It was a great selection of food in my opinion. The lounge also has more substantial food available to order for an extra charge.
The Aspire Lounge has free wifi and a Quiet Zone if you need to catch up on work. Overall I found it a very decent lounge and a great alternative to busy main terminal.”
