The Yorkshire Premier Lounge, Leeds/Bradford Airport
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Yorkshire Premier Lounge
If you have ever flown from Leeds/Bradford airport you will know that at peak times, such as early in the morning it can be very busy and is hard to find a place to sit amongst the constant hustle and bustle.

I had seen the Yorkshire Premier Lounge in the past and it always seemed a relaxing spot. Upon experiencing it for the first time I know I will return again.

The lounge is open from 5am to 6pm and you can enter 3 hours before your flight departs. Smart casual dress is the dress code so no shorts, football team or tour shirts etc are allowed.

Business Section
The lounge is split into two parts with the business section and the general section. I found the business section to be the quieter of the two as in the general area some of the children tended to be a bit noisy, although they do have a children's section in the general area too.

The business area, although busy did not seem to be as well used as the general section, going by the stains on some of the carpets and chairs in the busier general section.

The Wi Fi was very fast if you want to complete any business work or just general surfing.

Food area in General Section
They serve speciality teas, coffees, wines and beers, but for me the best part of our early morning visit was the freshly served bacon sandwiches along with the huge current tea cakes.

With cornflakes, fresh juices, yogurts, croissants, pain aux chocolates and fresh fruit the selection of food really got your holiday off to a good start.

The only thing I was not too keen on was having to go out of the lounge to use the toilets as the Yorkshire Premier Lounge does not have its own facilities, however, they are only a short walk away.

I got the impression that everyone in the lounge had used it before. In fact they even do a loyalty card, so after a few visits your next visit is free, so get your card stamped every time.

A perfect way to begin any holiday or business trip, with prices starting at £21 per adult it is worth every penny.
