Feedback from the National Bank Lounge at YUL

Once inside, the atmosphere of the lounge is calm and hushed. But it can fill up very quickly during busy periods.

The advantage of this lounge is that it has a small room reserved for children with games and small seats. It’s much appreciated!

There are large windows to watch the planes, which is very convenient for aviation enthusiasts.

On the buffet side, there are some warm fries and chicken croquettes. There are few drinks.
