I never normally bothered with these things as I actually used to like the buzz of wandering around crowded airport shops and having a nice proper cooked breakfast in some crowded eatery before a flight. A very good Virgin travel agent managed to do some effective arm twisting so I can now say I’ve given the new Gatwick airport Virgin Holidays v-room a try.
The v-room didn’t disappoint – breakfast was good, including the scrambled eggs (which I’m quite fussy about, I don’t like them too grainy looking or runny).
I’m not quite as eager about wandering round the airport shops as I used to be, in fact it was much nicer to simply relax in the v-room.
There are plenty of lounging areas, including some glam looking beds for your comfort.
I’d definitely recommend it, with it’s fun and colourful design.
