No. 1 Lounge Gatwick Airport Review

The No1 Lounge at Gatwick, North Terminal provides the perfect place for travellers to stop and unwind when passing through one of the UK’s busiest airports.

Inside you have access to a fully tended bar, by professional and attentive staff we must add, as well as a sports lounge, seating with runway views, and plenty of booths and quiet spots to retreat and relax.

Something we liked about the layout and feel of the lounge was the mix of dimly lit intimate booths, perfect for couples wanting somewhere private to unwind, and the central open-plan island bar where you can mingle with other travellers. The best of both worlds, and although the areas are separated by a few feet, you get two very different experiences depending on your personal preference.

The amenities covered all our needs too. There were plenty of power points to plug into and free WiFi to connect our devices, newspapers and magazines to browse, and for families trying to keep little ones occupied, there are complimentary children’s packs.

Those looking for something to eat will not be disappointed by the complimentary menu on offer. For breakfast options, you can either go for a full English, or go continental and choose from a selection of pastries, muffins, Greek yogurt, fruit, or cheese and biscuits.

“The role of an airport lounge is to provide an oasis within the chaotic environment of an airport - No1 at Gatwick North does this perfectly.”

After 11 am they serve hot and cold food. No1 have a range of dishes and change which are on offer each day, but we have to say that if either the sweet potato and coconut curry or the butterbean, lemon, and feta gratin are on offer when you drop in, we recommend sampling either of these.

We also recommend pulling up a seat at the island bar and enjoying a drink while in the lounge. With a selection of sparkling, white, red, and rose fine wines there’s something for every wine lover. As well as a modest range of beers and spirits.

The role of an airport lounge is to provide an oasis within the chaotic environment of an airport where you can relax and forget about everything that’s going on outside those lounge doors, and the No1 at Gatwick does this perfectly.

The moment we entered the lounge the feeling of luxury and calm was omnipresent. We could have happily spent several more hours sipping a glass of wine, relaxing, and catching up on some work, and I’m sure we will do in the future.
