We booked the Thistle & parking on a Groupon deal, now I know why it was on offer. I was depressed from the minute we pulled into the carpark as the building is the ugliest I've ever seen. Whilst reception was ok and the bar area there quite bright and modern, the rest of the hotel is simply dire. Our... More

Doesn't look good from the outside quite dated, but inside the staff are helpful and polite and the hotel has a good bar and restaraunt with a good view of the terminal 5 and the runways ideal for the plan spotter. Rooms are ok with good aircon and free wifi but quite small for a couple also you can get... More

What a disgusting dump that needs to be condemned. Rude staff but you can't blame them. Thistle this place is awful and those responsible for this place need to be fired. Dirty bathrooms. Just because it is cheap font stay here plus £5 per person to the airport.

This place is a prison. No service, no lift, no room to move, no peace and quiet. Almost checked myself back out to go elsewhere. And its not that close to the terminal, and costs you to bus it there and back... Avoid at all costs.

The hotel is easy to reach from Heathrow. The 423 bus departs from the airport, from floor zero, and is free (both ways): useful if you don't have English money! It stops at the top of the hotel car park: two stops only from Heathrow, I think (I did not count). The destination shows up on the screen inside the... More

I stayed at this hotel when attending an assessment day in Heathrow. I found it to be a very odd building at first - very maze like and took a while to work out how to get back to reception. The room basic but perfectly adequate and comfortable with an excellent bathroom. We found out upon arrival that the price... More

On arrival via pod from Heathrow my son and I thought we had arrived at a maximum security prison .. An uninviting walk through a locked gate (barbed wire fence) then a car park we had already regretted our choice. We stay near the airport every year on arrival in London and chose Thistle based on cost .. Big mistake!... More

We recently stayed one night at this hotel. Our toilet was broken and I called for assistance. A person came to fix it, but it immediately broke again. I attempted to call the front desk, but go no answer after about 25 rings. I called again and let it ring about 40 times. No answer. I decided to just fix... More

After much searching of Heathrow airport hotels decided on the Thistle, and glad I did so. As I was flying from Terminal 5 with an un-earthly early check-in time and with a car to park whilst away this hotel ticks all the boxes. Although busy, reception staff very helpful and I was offered help with my luggage to first floor... More
