Stayed overnight at this hotel. Sat Nav was next to useless to find the place- good job I looked on google images and found it second lap. Room was a bit dated but clean and tidy. Air con worked well, good job as window did not open. Good deal booking via website with free Pod travel to T5. This system... More

We stayed here due to a family wedding. First thing I would say is that appearances can be deceiving. From the outside it looks like a boring conference centre but once we entered, we couldn't believe it was the same place. Huge chandeliers hanging from ceiling in the reception hall, good size dance floor and decent table space. It was... More

The Thistle offers facilities that make preparing to or unwinding from a flight a pleasant experience, also there is a reasonable amount of parking taking the stress of the M25 out of the equation! The POD service offers {£5 per trip 08/2015} good connections to T5 and the Hotel-Hoppa provides other terminal connections. The hotel offers a welcoming environment from... More

We had one night prior to an early flight from T5. The reception staff were good and our rooms were allocated quickly; we left our car in the car park for one week. The rooms were fine, BUT, there didn't appear to be a lift to our floor, so be prepared to carry your bags. Staff will help I guess!... More

We stayed overnight before flying from Heathrow T5. We arrived late at night for an early morning departure. We selected this hotel because it offers stay and park packages instead of moving the car in the moving to an airport car park, and because travel to / from T5 is via the Pod capsules, a quick efficient and very convenient...

A good place with great connections to Heathrow and Central London. From the bus stop outside the hotel you can get a bus to the Piccadilly line. Hoppa bus to all terminals from 0545 although it does do a bit of a tour before arriving at the terminals. POD - now this is great for Terminal 5 - walk out... More

As we had a morning flight to Canada and didn't want to risk the M25 morning traffic we decided to stay at this hotel the night before. Chose this hotel as opposed to the very many others as it seemed good value and was nice and easy access for terminal 2 from which we were flying. One problem I have... More

We stayed overnight before flying from Heathrow. The hotel is night and clean and the staff were very helpful. This is the only hotel near Heathrow that I have found with connecting guest rooms. The only negative would be that the rooms are very small. If you were traveling with a child and put a cot in n the room... More

We chose this hotel because of its convenient access to T5. The "pod" transfer means you don't have to wait for a slow shuttle bus, and we were in the terminal within 10 minutes. Although you pay for the pod, it is a huge saving on staying at the Sofitel, if all you need is a bed for the night.... More

I stayed at the Thistle Hotel as I had an early flight from Heathrow the following day. I normally stay at The Travel lodge Terminal 5 I changed as The Thistle was around £15 cheaper than The Travel Lodge, As it was a late booking. The Service at reception was very quick, the receptionist was very pleasant, polite and helpful... More
