My husband and I stayed at this property in November 2012 while he was attending a conference being held a hotel across the road. I had read less than stellar reviews for the conference property and was very glad to find the Premier Inn. I got an excellent rate through a pre-paid non-refundable booking.
It is a relatively new hotel and was clean and quiet. We had a room on the 4th floor facing another building across a courtyard. We were not staying a Heathrow for the view, so no worries there. The room was quite functional, bed comfortable, wi-fi worked well (although there was a small fee beyond the first 30 minutes/day) and bathroom was clean with a good tub/shower. There are no extras such as shampoos, shower caps etc. but for the money you save on the room, you can buy a lot of your own!
The breakfast was excellent and the dining room quite nice. We didn't include the breakfast with our booking and found the continental breakfast (I believe it was around £5) included far more than I needed (cereal, including oatmeal, fresh fruit, toast, other breads, yogurt, fruit juice), including a coffee machine that made a very good latte!
The free local bus connection to Heathrow terminal 5 was great. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel and runs almost as often as the hotel bus that charges about £4 per trip. I spent my days in London while my husband was at the conference and travel was about an hour from hotel to central London via the tube.
We didn't eat dinner at the hotel but walked down the road to the local pub for a very good meal one evening.
No question I would stay here again if needing to be close to the airport.
