Visited in February for a 3 day seminar. Whilst not needing a high end hotel, the Thistle is disappointing to say the least. Rooms are small and the food in the restaurant is very average for both breakfast and dinner. It is relatively cheap which us a plus

The name of the hotel says it all. Its right next to the runway. Great place if you have an early flight or live a fair distance away. Staff were friendly, breakfast was include and good. Evening food was extra and a bit expensive, so went without much. Deals include long stay car parking which is very handy. Cost to... More

Did not know quite what to expect having read some of the negative reviews, but as a bed for the night with easy access to Heathrow, it was fine. The staff were friendly, the room was clean, people traffic made it a little noisy but there was no plane noise. Booked it as a package, one night's accommodation with parking... More

We arrived early hours in the morning... The guy on reception wasn't helpful at all or interested in helping us. We wanted a double room that faced the airport they only had a twin which ok fair enough however you could swing a cat in that room and for the money we paid there was no way we were staying...

As we had an 07.15 flight out of Terminal 5 last Sunday and live 90+ minutes away, my travel agent suggested staying here the night beforehand, as the room rate - on a deal - included a further 4 nights' parking. The staff were helpful, especially on the various ways to get over to the Terminal and back, and the... More

I used this hotel for an early flight. The check in was easy and staff freindly. I parked at the short stay T5 as I had a good deal but their parking rates are ok. The pod is an easy walk to get you to T5, You need to get a code from reception, not for the Pod itself but... More

The worst hotel experience for a long time 1) Cramped tiny rooms. The mirror was obscured by the TV in front of it ,as there is no other space. Then in front of the TV is the chair so you need to move it! Sad scuffed tired mahogany painted furniture - say no more! A photo on reception shows a... More

Nice hotel, stayed there for one night to go back to Paris. The dinner was ok, the fish was a bit greasy but the rest was ok. The receptionist are nice and always smiling There is a little bit of noises when people close their door. I recommend this hotel for a stop by only.

I had the misfortune of staying here on Tuesday night. I have been here before and hated it then too. Someone in my office booked this for me and as soon as my car rolled into the carpark I remembered why I never wanted to go back here again. The good bits..
