Ok let's face it you wouldn't stay here as a special night away, but as a convenient location for London and surrounding it's ideal. The bed was comfortable, the staff were great and breakfast was good. Wish they had unsmoked bacon too! There's a McDonald's in walking distance and a petrol station with a well stocked shop (sells alcohol) After... More

This was our second stay here and once again good. The bathroom has been upgraded and we were in room 201. Yes we did hear the planes but it stopped at 2230. Good nights sleep and very comfy bed. Small room but it was only for one night. Took the pod very good and better than the hoppa. I think... More

Thanks for your recent review. I am pleased you found the hotels close location to Terminal five favourable. All POD journey sales are collected on behalf of the operator. The hotel never profits from these sales. Next time your here you must check out the views of the Northern runway from the terrace next to the restaurant. More

I booked a room here via LastMinute.com, as I was looking for somewhere convenient for Heathrow t5 and a red eye flight. As this was connected via the pod system, this worked - £50 for a Friday night stay. The hotel itself is very tired looking, needs a lick of paint and new carpets. I arrived late evening and staff...

We stayed here before our flight from T5. Very easy to access from M25, a good restaurant overlooking the runway and very friendly staff. We were very happy. They even coped with my need for gluten-free food!😊

I flew in from Marseille and easily found a bus to the hotel from terminal 5. It costs 9 pounds return. Reception was courteous and efficient . My room was clean, modern with comfortable bed, good quality towels and quiet. No noise from next door rooms! I had supper in the bar extension to the restaurant and it was inexpensive,... More

Stayed here before leaving from T5. No architectural prizes and the inside is a little dated. The room was fine, comfortable bed, clean . We used the restaurant which had a good menu with fresh cooked food and helpful staff. We got there from the terminal by the POD system from the terminal. It's £5 each per journey. We would... More

Stopped at the Thistle T5 for one night last week in advance of a business trip, booking parking and the Hoppa to T2 as part of the package. Everything was 'as it says on the tin' - just without much charm and a degree of hassle. I would definitely re-book if there was a package as part of a family... More

Well our initial impression was of an older hotel that looked a little tired compared to the newer hotels nearby. However the beds were extremely comfortable and rooms quiet. Never heard a plane which considering it's next to the airport is amazing. On site long stay parking, 12 o'clock checkout, and amazing buffet breakfast with friendly attentive staff. Excellent experience... More

We booked a family room, when we arrived they told us they had no family rooms left, and that we had to have two separate rooms. We was on the second floor, and no lifts, so had haul suitcases up the stairs. The rooms are out of date, the tv didn't work, as the power cable wasn't working. The picture... More

The average (means) is for only below very well.Good! The team is international and correct. One by one in the shower-room or the toilets. A simple restaurant for a prize above the average. OK for 70L with breakfast. Happy if I'll payed 60L.The most realistic price

Thank you for your comments. I hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the view of the airport and planes landing. We are working towards fitting a lift into the hotel and part of this project is a bridge to connect all parts of the building. If you are in the area again, please contact one of our relationship managers... More
