Nice pod trip to the back gate from terminal 5 (they charge you £5 to open the back gate!!!), it was then that the long walks started, reception - 3 mins, room - 3 mins, bar - 5 mins; my Fitbit was working overtime! Nice view of the runway from the bar, lots of plane spotters on the balcony; how... More

We booked this hotel for 1 overnight stay to make a connection to terminal 5 the following day. It is just cheap and cheerful. Room was clean and as we were only staying overnight were not fussed. The fun really began using the Pod to terminal 5. We laughed so much. I would stay again as it would be only... More

Stayed here recently on route to Geneva, one night, two rooms B&B, £85 a night at T5 Heathrow, I knew it was to good to be true! Check in was very good, fast and friendly. Rooms were totally different although next to each other however I had a good nights sleep. So what was wrong with the Hotel? The restaurant... More

Good stay and very convenient access to the Heathrow airport terminals. Staff very friendly and can't fault the service. I have stayed at this Hotel numerous times and never been disappointed. If anybody is due to fly out on business the next day then I can only recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Thistle Terminal 5 Heathrow and we found the hotel in need of some refurbishment but had a snack in the evening which was fine. Breakfast was the same as any other hotel - the best bit was watching the planes come in to land right in front of the restaurant. We got the POD over to... More

The hotel is in a great position for Heathrow airport and all teminals as there is a hopper bus service direct to each terminal from the hotel reception. (£10 return ticket or £5 for a single.) The hotel I found was very clean and tidy, I booked a twin room but the beds had approx 5 cm between them so... More

Convenient location for London Heathrow Terminal 5 with public bus, hoppa bus and Heathrow Pod Be aware that the rooms are very small and all rooms are on the first floor. THERE IS NO LIFT so beware! you have to carry your own cases up and down and there is also smaller sets of stairs in some parts of the... More

I stayed at the Thistle Heathrow due to having a late evening incoming flight from a business trip – I didn’t fancy the long trip into central London, which is where I usually stay. Won’t be making that mistake again! Location wise, the hotel is ideal for Terminal 5 users. Right next to one of the main business car parks... More

Stayed here due to its proximity to the airport, but it is dated to say the least. The bathroom was tiny and you could hardly close the door without shuffling into the corner of the bathroom first. Small room and poor quality mattress, but the best part was the route to the dining room, where a bucket was catching the... More

My 4th stay in 5 months for a business seminar, and have stayed 8 nights in total. What's good is the free wifi. Otherwise felt ripped off this visit: room rates different, parking charges up 500%, told "corporate rate" for breakfast was £10 instead of £17 then following day sign on reception desk saying standard breakfast rate £10. Overall rip... More
