All the staff here were very friendly and helpful The room was ok but had a shower that had no temperature regulation and a lumpy bed. Dinner was well presented , there is a varied menu and prices are reasonable .Breakfast was good too. My room was very quiet for a hotel by the runway. There's plenty of parking but... More

We stayed here at the beginning of November for three nights. Location was great for us. Breakfast excellent variety and good quality. Rooms were small but this was not a problem as we were not at the hotel to enjoy its facilities, our purpose of choosing the hotel was merely a clean comfortable place to stay close to heathrow airport....

Take the free bus (423) from Heathrow T5 to Longford where the bus stops directly outside the hotel, in less than 5 minutes. The hotel from the outside, is not the most nicest looking of buildings, but inside the reception is large and full staffed, being served without a wait. I had asked for an airport runway room, but was... More

We only spent 1 evening at this hotel as part of a theatre weekend. Arrived around 7ish and keys were waiting for us. Staff were very friendly on arrival. Dinner was around 8oclock and was a buffet style meal with soup or salad starter, a chicken dish, a pasta dish and a vegetarian burger option, roast potato's veg or salad... More

Having stayed here for one night on three separate occasions, I have some experience of the place. The reception staff are great, friendly, helpful and good at their work, whether it is 10pm or booking out at 4am. The rooms are a different matter, one stunk of damp and generally are worn out, although generally clean, if you don't mind... More

I'm guessing this was once a grand hotel but that would have been some time ago. It's passable but could easily be great once again. The good things first - easy to get to from Heathrow, Hoppa Bus 4 leaves from all Heathrow terminals every 20 minuites. If you want to do quixck shopping the 81 Bus leaves rightout side... More

We stayed one night before a flight from Heathrow. The staff, every one we met were excellent ,efficient and friendly. The room however was freezing as was the corridor which led from reception. Breakfast like the room was cold and looking very tiered even at 0730 in the morning!

I stayed here for one night before a morning flight. Reception is lovely but the rooms are small and very shabby. Finding your way to and from the bar almost needs a map! On the plus side wifi was free and consistent and the staff were very pleasant.

An airport or transit hotel, nothing else despite the stylish reception area, it is just a transit hotel. If that's what you're after, it's well placed and well served by the airport shuttle bus, which at £4.50 a journey, is probably better in a taxi if there's more than one in your party.
