    Better out of peak times, olives are very nice, my fave place to relax before my train, fre snacks and soft drinks and paid for alcohol

    I think if people saw what the lounge was before they bought 1st class, they probably wouldn't go through with it. That said, it has all the basics.

    Vastly improved since 2013. Reasonable place to use before or after a trip at the weekend to catch your breath for next leg of a journey. Staff polite and coffee and hot chocolate from the machine 👍

    Currently being refurbished but its upper deck location & enlarged space are a massive improvement. Tea/ coffee, bar, snacks and wifi. What more could you need?

    A nice quiet place to chill if you have time to kill. Platforms are really easily accessible, and you can get passes with the rewards programme for virgin

    What a bad left to the lounge ! Fix it Virigin ! you are a money machine !! It won't cost 3 mints of your minute rate

    There is a extra 5 pounds fee, even if you are first class

    Quiet lounge on right. Espresso good. Can be really jam packed and like a cattle market at times...but still better than on the normal concourse

    Mr Branson please take note: first class lounge is nothing short of pathetic!

    You're NOT allowed to upgrade a weekend ticket to first class here at the lounge. You have to do it on the train.

    There is now a great addition to the freebies called "Uglies" and they are the best thing in the lounge now!

    The soft drink cups here are tiny. Use the coffee cups instead!

    Ask the Barista to make you a free coffee rather than queue for the coffee machine! Quicker and much nicer!

    Refurbished since my last visit so miles better in that regard. Not easy to move cases around as everything is so close. Please add more departure boards as most seats can't see any!

    If you have trouble finding a power socket to charge your electronic device on the walls, look for ones on the floor near the chairs looking over main concourse.

    It's great place to recharge and not have to deal with the crowd below

    A great disappointment - far too busy and just a glorified waiting room. Very messy & noisy, not what I would usually expect from Virgin Trains

    It is all grey now... More comfy seats but the beer price has gone up :-(

    Like a sea of tranquility rising above the cesspit of the rest of Euston. Don't worry about earlier negative tips - it was vastly refurbished in early 2014 and is now much better.

    It has recently been upgraded and seems a lot nicer now. Clean and refreshing. It's a place to relax after a long day.

    Mark and Priti members of the virgin customer service team are extremely rude. Of if you can use a different service please do.

    Absolutely rammed on Friday evening work stations taken up by people not using them. Feels like a Witherspoons

    Pleasantly surprise. Nice lounge, nice selection of soft drinks and refreshments. Alcoholic drinks are optional extra

    Could use a referb and it beats hanging about on the concourse by miles. Soft drinks, device charging and wife are all free. Bring some earphones to prevent overhearing others

    Pretty disappointing to be honest. Struggled to find a seat. Dirty carpets, poor selection of drinks. Lack of TV's. First class it isn't.

    Odd hospital waiting room feel, dirty and shabby, but it's air conditioned and if your lucky there's a comfy seat, so it beats standing in the main concourse!

    It is not so bad... oddly retro but I have seen worse airport lounges in parts of Africa.

    This is a first class lounge and a very third class experience. Not really worth climbing the stairs for .

    The lounge is great for killing some time you may have left. I wouldn't bother connecting to the Internet as it is rather slow but help yourself to all the drinks! Great way to relax after a long day!

    So many staff in lounge just now at 12.30, about 6 or 7, yet tables are dirty, poor show! TV is loud. Pretty poor! The SBB 1st class at Zurich Hbf is the benchmark for rail lounges in my opinion!

    Euston is generally a terrible station. Therefore the first class lounge is not as bad as the rest of the station. However, anyone can put a few sofas and a tv in a room.

    Virgin lounge a la heathrow airport it ain't so don't set your expectations too high. But u can get a cuppa and a drink etc. I would not plan to spend too much time here!

    Quite nice actually. Try and travel the States by train and maybe you'll have more appreciation for the niceties here!

    Pretty bust on a evening before 'off peak' kicks in at 7pm. Be prepared to stand!

    Don't be deterred by beady eyes when you are loading up on the free goodies. See it as payback for the forever rising rail fares.

    Load of first class thickos in here who sit in the quiet zone and use their mobile phones. Arghh!

    Closes at 23.00 but if you're getting the Caledonian Sleeper you should be able to board by then.
