GULF AIR BUSINESS CLASS DILMUN LOUNGE REVIEW  - BAHRAIN AIRPORT

Expensive is the first thing that comes to mind if you are not a member of Gulf Air's Golden Falcon FF program. The lounge charges access in chunks of 3 hours each, and when you have a 7.5 and a 10 hour layover, as I did, that adds up. Sleeper seats at one end of the lounge, but the lights have been positioned so as to shine directly into one's eyes, and Gulf Air has to discover the concept of eye shades, whether on their aircraft or here. The lounge does provide blankets and there is also a shower available to freshen up. While you will be told at check in that flights are not called, the reverse is true - some flights are called (very disturbing to sleep when there are no earplugs available!) on a very odd, seemingly random basis. The desk staff is obliging, while service staff in the lounge tries to be unobtrusive but fails miserably, clattering dishes and glassware, making a lot of noise when replenishing food and drink, etc.

The Gulf Air lounge allows a 'pay per visit' for any traveller. I needed good wi-fi and some good breakfast. I paid GBP35 each, for the two of us. Very friendly staff and club lounge was immaculate with fast wi-fi. However, at about 10.00am, the remains of what was breakfast was cold and congealed at the self service food bar. I asked, in the form of a complaint, about the state of the breakfast bar. I was offered a fresh coffee (very good) by one of the girls and told that when the chef returned from his break, that he would prepare us some breakfast. This he did. We were offered a plain omelette or some 'fresh' frittata. We opted for the frittata. Two small slices each with no accompaniment. Very disappointing and not worth the money we had paid. Even with the wi-fi and a total of 4 coffees, GBP70 was a lot to pay. Will not be going there again.

A nice little lounge located next to gate 7 in Terminal 4. Greeting was friendly and professional. Great views over the southern runway and the stands outside. Food and drink selection was very good but cannot quite compete with the Qatar Airways lounge. Small terminals with movies and series placed at most tables for entertainment. 3 Mac terminals with internet access if you have forgotten your computer and WiFi is available in the lounge as well. Very nice restrooms with showers if required.

Situated overlooking the tarmac the lounge is large and airy with an adjoining self service food area. The central bar has a full selection of drinks including fizz. Full selection of newspapers, WiFi and smart toilets and showers. Loads of seats, including a section overlooking the aircraft. Because of T4 layout it is still a 5-8 minute walk to your gate, even though you can see it from the lounge. Ours was a morning visit and there was a wide selection of hot breakfast food on offer. Well staffed, this is a good lounge.

Impressed by spacious and modern lounge in Bahrain airport. The seats were comfortable and able to get a view airside so we could watch the planes coming and going. The food was quite tasty and there was a reasonable selection.

Used this lounge travelling with SriLankan Airlines. Very nice lounge which was refurbished and of good quality. Good selection of food and drinks. Staff were attentive. Showers were locked even though nobody using them, not sure if this was because we were not Gulf air passengers. Toilets were clean. Wifi and computers available and seating including some comfortable chairs, sofas and quiet rooms.

Excellent seating variety, (it's possible to order a quiet room at an extra cost of 30 BHD). There's a good variety of hot food. It has a good selection of drinks and a espresso machine. Armchair equipped with a portable screen to watch a selection of movies. There's a family room with toys and a separate one for children and teens with XBOX stations. Free WI-FI. Clean toilets and courteous staff.

What a contrast to their own lounge in Bahrain was fantastic on the outbound. They use a Service lounge used by number of airlines, dark, gloomy depressing. wireless involved sending your personal details and then a text to some number and after 9 tries never worked. Gave up in the end, no alcoholic beverages at all. Some hot food but looked like it had been deep fried to its death and was verging on carbon. Staff smiling which is the great thing about Indian people always helpful and courteous. My Advice don't get to the airport to early and save hanging out in this lounge.

Awful, horrible plastic cafe sort of place, used now by Gulf Air following their move from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4. Was packed, everything involved a queue (e.g. 5 minutes to enter; 5+ minutes to get a cup of coffee at the "cute but oh-so-slow" espresso/cappuchino coffee machine). The food bar had no forks (all had been used) for at least 25 minutes, despite staff milling about (and chatting with each other plenty). No call service for airlines (hence had to join Gulf Air's uncontrolled mob at boarding time). Basically was glad to leave the place - will try hard to avoid it in future.

Comfortable lounge with darkened sleeping area at one end. Selection of food limited but tasty. Not self-service. You choose what you want and it is prepared and brought to you.Staff only too pleased to do whatever they can for you. Reasonable selection of drinks. Internet available in 30 minute blocks (but I went back for several without a problem). Ejected at 2330 hrs as final Airport Security check closes shortly after this.

This is a haven of peace at T3 and certainly one of the best lounges at Heathrow. Although small it has a calm feeling and has full facilities including full bar with good fizz and tasty snacks. Full internet for those who need to work or perhaps relax under the drapes awaiting your call to board. Gulf will lay on a buggy on request and also you are encouraged not to go to the gate until called from the lounge, so you can board last. Look forward to trying the 5* lounge at BAH and the soon to be refurbished Gulf lounge at MCT

GF lounge at BAH is the best I have encountered. From being met at the reception desk by the most courteous staff to being escorted to your gate if requested by the most profesional staff, it is a truly enjoyable experience. Computers, free wifi, a huge choice of food from hot snacks to sandwiches, drinks from the finest champagne to sodas. Staff will also pack you a lunch box for a long haul flight if requested - in this lounge you dont have to ask for anything as everything is offered. The lounge has an Arabian theme which is very comfortable. People often wonder what they are paying for with business and first class prices, apart from the wonderful service offered on their flights this 5* star treatment in the lounge would put alot of 5* hotels to shame.
