Great experience at the Stansted lounge, the lovely Beata and Liz helped us out after our flight had to be moved due to an incident at the airport the previous day. Lovely food and relaxing vibe.
"We will return"
Jane M – TripAdvisor – Sep 2021
Always use the Escape Lounge and have never been disappointed. After a long break it was good to return and see that they still value every visitor and ensure that you are relaxed before your flight. Hot food, good choice. We will return. Thank you
