Priority Pass are the world’s largest network of airport lounges. Members of the scheme can access over 900 lounges around the globe, which is great for frequent flyers or business travellers. You can purchase a Priority Pass which is valid for 12 months (10% discount) or sign up to the American Express Platinum card (currently £450 annual fee). If you can not going to use all of the AMEX Platinum benefits then it may be better to just pay for the Priority Pass which start at £55 per year. If you regularly travel from London Heathrow there is a new Priority Pass Lounge, the Club Millesime Lounge.
The Club Millesime Lounge is located in the Sofitel Hotel at London Heathrow Terminal 5. It is a new lounge to join Priority Pass, but has existed within the hotel for some time for the use of guests only. The Sofitel London Heathrow is directly opposite terminal 5 and though not requiring a shuttle transfer there is a quite a long 10 minute walk between from hotel and terminal.
Priority Pass members are able to use the lounge from 7:00AM until 9:30PM daily for a maximum of 5 hours. The lounge allow allows access to 4 guests per cardholder. Shower facilities and spa access is also complimentary for Priority Pass cardholders. With this lounge being located in a hotel there is also a breakfast and evening buffet, which is better than the food offering in the air-side Aspire terminal 5 lounge.
To gain access first visit the reception in the hotel who will guide you down to the lounge.
