The Guest House at Sanford Airport
The Guest House is situated in the International departure lounge of Terminal A at Sanford Airport, and the access and signs for it are adjacent to Chadwick’s Pub. It opens four hours before the first international flight of the day and is specially designed for the holiday or business traveller and offers, for a fee, a ‘get away from the crowds’ opportunity and a place to relax or work.
I had passed through Sanford Airport on my way home from many Orlando trips before I actually used this facility. We found ourselves at the airport with a very long delay ahead and were not the only flight to be delayed that afternoon. Spaces to sit in the main departure lounge were in short supply so we went to investigate the Guest House. We had to join a waiting list for admittance, as the numbers allowed in are controlled, but we didn’t have to wait very long for our turn to come round.
We all had to register at the reception desk and those in our group aged 21 or over were given special wrist bands so that we could use the bar.
Inside the Guest House there is plenty to keep everyone entertained :
For the children there is a children’s playroom with equipment and toys that are suitable for young children, from toddlers upwards. There is another area, for older children, with a television and eight Sony Playstation 2 consoles.
There are three PCs offering email and internet access which is ideal if you need to catch up with any business, surf the web, or to let people know that your flight has been delayed.
There is a Home Theatre with wide-screen TV, surround sound and comfortable chairs to sit in. The films that are shown are from a selection available at the reception desk. They are shown on a ‘first come first served’ request basis.
There is a small kitchen area with free hot drinks, soft drinks and snacks (nuts and crackers were available when we were there).
The bar area has tables and chairs and offers table service from a speciality menu. There are a couple of television screens here too, and they mainly show news programmes.
Finally, there is the reading room/lounge area which is quiet and relaxing with comfortable armchairs and sofas and copies of recent popular magazines and periodicals.
The entry charge is $20 for an adult and $15 for a child and is, in my view, well worth every cent – it was a godsend for us.
