"Great start to our holiday"

TripAdvisor- WhitlocksEnd July 2021
After the chaos of check in the Lounge provided an oasis of calm and tranquility. All staff were very accommodating, and the food and drink offerings were excellent. Our visit coincided with the reopening of the lounge and it is great that they were able to ‘hit the ground running’.
"Brilliant experience at Escape Lounge, T2."

TripAdvisor- MollieChristo August 2021
Had a really good experience at the new Escape Lounge at T2, Manchester. The lady who greeted us was very friendly and showed us where to find everything. The food was hot, good quality and a great selection. No queues for the drinks and good service at the bar. Much better than paying over the odds for a cold, sad breakfast at one of the eateries at the airport. I’ve often found airport lounges hit and miss, but this was definitely a hit!
"Love the new lounge."
