“Stay and Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

The sheer convenience of walking to T5 undercover is worth the pretty high price. You are pampering yourself but what a start to a holiday. Parking is excellent; 4 or 8 days is a bit strange. The ticket is authorised when you check out so on return you simply take the lift to your car and drive off, M25 in 8 to 10 minutes at night. Service in the Brasserie can was slow but the food was good.Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff.

my husband and i stayed the night before flying out of london in order to avoid the morning commute.
it was very comfortable and attractively furnished.
a business center with free internet or free wifi would have been helpful but at least you could check in at 1 of the lobby computers and obtain your boarding passes that way.

The rooms at the hotel are very stylish, comfortable and noise free. I've always gone first to the ACCOR chain to book a hotel in Europe, and again this choice did not disappoint. I used only one restaurant and found the food to be of good quality and the service most peasant..

This is the closest hotel to terminal 5 at heathrow,the home of British Airways.
Have stayed here a few times and must admit that it is very convenient and a quick walk to/ from T5.
One has quick access to the bus,tube,Paddington express and cabs.The rooms are plush but minimalistic and the bed was very comfortable.It still has some newness to it considering it is about a year old!!
The food though is much overpriced. Tried the restaurants at the terminal,but true to all airports,food is expensive.
There is a Marks and Spencers on the arrivals level,from where one can pick up a decent meal.
It is the best option if one is in transit and flying T5.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in two rooms, bought package direct from Sofitel with parking included. Very good price if paid for in advance. When you have booked an international flight you might as well prepay the hotel for a much better rate. The car parking was a little frustrating as there was a big wedding in the hotel on the day we checked in but we did find a space and told reception we were not in the correct parking area - this was not a problem. Also when I prebooked I stupidly booked two double rooms which once booked I couldn't change without a fee. when we arrived I explained this to reception and we were quickly changed to a double and a twin interconnecting which is just what we wanted. Rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Very easy to get to terminal 5 at Heathrow but also from there you can get free train transfer to other terminals. All this was easy and under cover. We actually flew from T3 which was very easy to do even with 5 suitcases and hand luggage.
