The photographs here (click to enlarge) were sent in by three different readers and show The White Rose Suite.  This is the Priority Pass / Lounge Club lounge – interestingly, they are using the ‘middle’ one in terms of pricing.

The feedback so far is average – “nice furniture”, “sterile”, “much bigger than before”, “very quiet”, “tiny toilets”, “run of the mill food”, “table too close together”, “not the best quality”, “sawdust smell”, “only a couple of plugs”, “extremely sad and dry bacon rolls”.

It is certainly nothing to convince me that The White Rose Suite is worth £30 cash.  It is still early days though.

You can pre-book for cash for on the Leeds Bradford website here.

Getting airport lounge access via a UK credit card

As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:

The Platinum Card from American Express

Two free Priority Pass cards (one for you, one for your supplementary Platinum cardholder, each admitting two – so a family of four gets in free) giving access to every lounge in the Priority Pass network – search it here.  You also get access to Plaza Premium, Delta and Eurostar lounges.  Our American Express Platinum review is here.

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold

You get a Lounge Club card loaded with two free visits to any Lounge Club network lounge – see the list here.  The list is slightly shorter than the Priority Pass list, but not by much.  Additional visits are charged at £20 per person.  You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.  No annual fee in Year 1.  Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.

HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard

You get a free LoungeKey card allowing you access to any property in the LoungeKey network.  Guests are charged at £20 although regular travellers will find it cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card (adults only, of course).  The card has an annual fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer.  Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.

    Shame they decided on three naff lounges rather than just putting their energy into making one decent one. I live in West London but I’m originally from Harrogate so I usually do LHR/LBA if I need to go back for any reason. The fact that the Yorkshire Pudding Lounge has served little more than baked potato and a sad little salad trolley for years was probably an indicator of their true appetite for any sort of meaningful investment and improvement. Sounds like the model has back-fired on them as well given that one of the comments listed is “very quiet”.
