Its just in the flight path of the aeroplanes. Wouldn't have minded so much if I had been going on a plane but I wasn't. Fortunately we were only there for 1 night. The planes stop at 11 and my lighter sleeping colleagues couldn't sleep until then. The hotel is, otherwise, pretty bog standard. Dated. Tired. Probably a cheap option... More

Stayed here for one night after a long flight back from Las Vegas. We arrived late- approx 11.30pm. We booked this hotel as it stated that the hotel was directly in terminal 5- don't be fooled! It cost us £25 in a taxi from terminal 5 to the Thistle! It could be argued you could get the bus but with... More

Great spot for stopping over when flying in or out of Heathrow terminal 5. Corridors and rooms are pretty tired looking but perfectly clean. The view from the restaurant makes up for the poor quality overpriced food which is all too common when you have a captive audience. The pod that takes you too and from the airport is fantastic,...

Stopped here with a amazon deal nobody understood what was going on. In the end I got charged twice this has now been rectified. Rooms tired plumbing needs sorting . Evening meal good breakfast excellent ok for one night. Pod from hotel great to get to the airport. Would stop here again but only for one night.

Fine for an overnight stay if you are flying out of Heathrow the following day. The pod link to T5 is the reason I chose this hotel. Pros: comfortable bed, clean room, good working shower, friendly staff, easy access to T5 & good choice of food with great open aspect in the restaurant. Cons: small rooms, corridors rather depressing and... More

The hotel is old worn and tired. As a gold member of the reward program the promised upgrade to a higher category room did not materialise. The proximity to the airport is fantastic - as are the small automated pods that transport you to and from Terminal 5. The only issues with these are that they stop running relatively early... More

My wife and I stayed here so we could get to Heathrow very early in the morning. The price was pretty good and the location was excellent. The bed was decent and there were no disturbing noises during the night, inc. no aircraft noise. The downside was that when we got into the room we found that the toilet hadn't... More

Easy to find hotel with shuttles running from Heathrow (and back to Heathrow or the Tube to London area). This hotel had everything travellers required, helpful and friendly staff, door to door transport (at a cost) or free buses 50 metres from the hotel, good size clean rooms and although extremely busy and directly under the Heathrow flights the noise...

This is a hotel for a guest on the move, if you are flying in or out of Heathrow, it's clean, close (very close) to the airport and the pod transport looks to be a very convenient way of getting into T5. It's not photogenic, there is no gym or anything along those lines. Drinks aren't cheap, £5 for a... More
