Review: Aspire Lounge Edinburgh Airport
The Aspire Lounge Edinburgh Airport is one of 2 Priority Pass lounges that you can fill your belly and sippy sip-sip while you wait for your flight. The other is the No 1 Lounge and they do have distinctly different feels to them. I had the pleasure of kickin’ it at both lounges with my parents while we kept getting delayed and delayed and delayed on an Aer Lingues to Dublin. We spent about 4 hours in the Aspire Lounge and got to really get our “feels” in for the lounge.

Hang out areas
The Aspire has a lot of space to chill. We were fortunate to grab a booth and nestle in. There is free wifi and we were in there for MUCH longer that we had planned.
Great views over here
Food and beverage options
The food isn’t amazing, but it’s good and plentiful. We were actually there for two meal options.
Who wants some OJ and Champers? Miles is serving bottomless Mimosas
And for those needing to get some work done…
The biggest negative of the lounge is the lack of the bathrooms in-lounge. I mean…that’s kinda cray. Other than that, I thought the lounge offered everything that you’d expect from a Priority Pass lounge. I will have you know that it was incredibly busy while we were in there so I would snag a table as quickly as possible. The lounge is just so easy to get into by either paying or having a 3rd party membership. In terms of comparing it to the No 1 – the No 1 is newer and nicer aesthetically. In terms of food…I’d say they are about the same level, but if you wanna feel like you ish don’t stink – go No 1.
