We stayed at this hotel for literally 15 hours so can't go into much detail. We arrived mid afternoon, where to park our car (we paid for hotel and parking) was a little confusing but once we got to reception we were told we could leave it in the main carpark for the duration of our trip which was 5 nights.
Check in was quick, rooms are pretty small, basic and out dated, bathroom was a little dirty with mould on the ceiling. Rooms come equipped with kettle, tv and hair dryer. Although you can hear every take off from terminal 5 (it's the closest off site hotel at heathrow) after a while it doesn't phase you and we certainly didn't lose any sleep from it.
One thing that struck me was how quiet the hotel was, it was a Saturday evening at 7.30pm and the bar had 1 other couple in it and the restaurant 3 other couples. Food was good but felt a little edgy with staff out numbering guests! View of the runway was a nice bonus though whilst we ate.
Bus service to Heathrow took only about 10 minutes, I would only recommend this hotel for one night stays for early or late arrivals and departures, spend any longer here and you'll be bored stiff.
