Lounge Review: Plaza Premium Lounge London Heathrow Terminal 2 Departures (LHR)

After a great day in London, it was time for me to check out of the hotel and head to the airport early in the morning. I took the free local bus from the hotel to the terminal and was able to check in fairly quick. It was just bad that no security checkpoint was open and a big line was already forming in front of it. Lucky that I got there that early, later on, the line got very long. It took me about 30 minutes of waiting and getting through security.

After the security checkpoint bare to your left and head down to the main departure level. Follow the signs for the Lounge A3. This will bring you directly to the Plaza Premium Lounge. I was so quickly through security that the lounge was still closed and I had to wait another 10 minutes for them to open. The lounge is located next to the Terminal Transfer Area. The easiest way is to follow the sings for lounge A3.

I was the second person in the lounge because someone thought it was necessary to cut the line to be first in the lounge. When I sat down just outside the lounge to wait for its opening, I was the only one.

Follow the signs for Lounge A3.

The contemporary design of the lounge is very inviting and even so, the lounge had no windows, it still feels like a great place to rest and hang out. The lounge is very big, bigger as some airline operated lounges in the US. There are plenty of seating options available. Mostly convenient sofa chairs. Only around the dining area are regular tables and chairs for a better dining experience.

Most of the breakfast buffet was already set up and the staff finished the last small details. Breakfast here was amazing! They had everything from toast, scrambled eggs, cereals and much more. Definitely a great breakfast and I am not sure if I would have gotten anything better at the hotel.

My time as running out quickly as I only had about half an hour in the lounge and that was just long enough to get a good breakfast. I am just curious to see what the put out for lunch or dinner. Breakfast was amazing.
