    Worth a DetourShared international lounge for OneWorld, Jetstar and Emirates. Standard selection of beer, spirits, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Limited buffet with enough to nibble on to get you through.

    Worth a DetourWorthwhile lounge. Decor is slightly old. Food spread is decent though with sausage rolls, DIY nachos, lamb meatballs, cheese and crackers, some salad. Great NZ wines, bad spirits. Quick wifi.

    SatisfactoryOK lounge (for a small airport). Not much options food-wise. Good alcohol selection. Terrible TVs blurting shouting everywhere. Music competing. Makes for unpleasant environment.

    Worth a DetourFood offerings here can be really hit and miss. Some days it's alright and other days it's not even worth heading to the buffet. Staff here have always been friendly and helpful.
