I had a visit to the No. 1 Traveller Lounge Edinburgh just before the recent vote on Independence for Scotland. I made what might have been, one last trip to the birthplace of my father.
On the way back I used my Priority Pass card to visit the No.1 Traveller Lounge in Edinburgh airport. Located in the old location of the BA lounge (which has moved to the old location of the bmi lounge – more on this tomorrow), it is about half way down the terminal.
At the entrance I was greeted by a delightful agent who took my card, described the facilities and let me find a seat. It was fairly busy but I had no problem finding a seat, although I did notice most of the other passengers seemed to be leisure travellers.
The lounge, which opened in May 2014, has natural light and a range of table types. There is a bar and self service food area at the back of the lounge.
The hot food offerings can be ordered at the bar – strictly one per admission – and are brought to you by the lounge staff. These were the offerings on the day I was there:
I chose the waffle which was lovely:
As time progressed they switched from breakfast to lunch and the self service buffet – where you can have as much as you like – was stocked with other items:
The food tasted pretty good.
Beer and wine was free from the bar, and soft drinks, teas and coffees were self service.
All round a pretty good (paid) lounge which I enjoyed a great deal. The cost is £22.50 in advance and £27.50 per person on the door. You can book your spaces via the No.1 Traveller web site.
