Lounge Review: Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow
The Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow is one of a total of five Star Alliance lounges at the airport. The lounge is quite modern, has lots of daylight and nice catering. In this review, we’ll explain what you need to know about the lounge.
London Heathrow Airport is totally crazy when it comes to lounges. Terminal 2 alone has an incredible seven lounges, five of those are operated by Star Alliance carriers (you’d think they share one lounge, but …). There are two Lufthansa Lounges, the Air Canada Lounge, the United Club and last but not least the Singapore Airlines Lounge. The latter is the space I’ll review here. The lounge is located right next to Air Canada’s lounge in the central area of the satellite terminal, where most long haul flights depart. Access is granted to all Star Alliance Gold members and business class passengers. There’s an additional First Class section in this lounge, too.
Seating in the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow
Compared to other Singapore Airlines Lounges, the one in London is on the smaller side. Upon entering, you’re passing the buffet and the entrance to the First Class lounge before you’ll find yourself in the main and only room of the lounge. There is plenty of seating in different arrangements.
There are a couple of typical lounge chairs facing each other or the wall. All of these seats come with small tables and most have power ports, too. Then the lounge has some high-top seating, some very interesting chairs with an incredible tall backrest.
Other than that, the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow has some of my most favorite lounge seating: semi-private cubicles with a table, which not only look very stylish, but are also very comfortable.
Last but not least, it’s worth noting that the lounge has a kids area.
Something else worth noting is that the lounge is very bright in most areas thanks to a spacious window front, which allows a nice view of the tarmac.
All in all, I liked the design of the lounge very much and wouldn’t hesitate spending more time here.
Buffet of the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow
The buffet of the Singapore Airlines Lounge is another area where the lounge shines quite a bit. No, it’s not extraordinary, but totally fine for an outstation lounge. During the day, they had a very nice selection of cold cuts, cheeses, finger sandwiches, salads, quiche and more.
Additionally, there was a display of a couple of different hot options, mainly Asian.
I had a bite of some of the options available and found them to be tasty. Then the buffet also had a nice selection of desserts.
Speaking of the drinks, there was a selection of lemonades as well as the typical soft drinks, spirits, beers, wines and more.
I’d say that the lounge is great for grabbing a snack pre-flight. It might not be the most substantial buffet ever, but the quality and quantity of options is just fine.
Entertainment in the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow
When it comes to the entertainment selection, the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow isn’t bad either. You can find a great selection of newspapers and magazines with no particular focus available in different languages.
Additionally, there’s easy to use and quick WiFi, which helps to stay productive. Other than that, there’s a small working area, which you can use if you need a place to work.
Overall impressions of the Singapore Airlines Lounge London
My visit to the Singapore Airlines Lounge London Heathrow was quite pleasant. The lounge has a comfortable and cozy interior. As the lounge is open for just a few years, there’s hardly any wear and tear either. The views are beautiful, the seating options are plentiful and comfortable and the buffet is on a high level, too. The same is true for the entertainment selection and the service. It’s tough to rank the different lounges in London’s Terminal 2, but the Singapore Airlines Lounge definitely deserves one of the top spots.
