Excellent. No issues. No problems. Perfect location for early morning T5 travel. Room perfect. Used national express to link with hotel. Great. Only issue is with delays in T5 with queues at bag drop desks.

The hotel is by far the best hotel close to heathrow but it knows it and also how to charge. Normally hard to get a room for less than £200 which when you add on food etc means you can easily spend nearly £350 for a nights stay if you have an evening meal and and breakfast. evening meal was good for hotel food.
On the back of a long holiday felt we were prepared to spend the money but on say a weekend break or a 7 day vacation the cost would be a very large % of total spend and i might have second thoughts and go for one of the less convenient Holiday inns

This was perfect before a long haul flight. Very comfortable and modern and although we did not have time to use all the facilities they are many and very clean and tidy. The food is gormet and the service outstanding.

I had a 9am flight out of Terminal 5 and stayed at the Sofitel Heathrow the night before my flight. The room was really, really nice. Spotlessly clean and modern with plenty of tea & coffee (some biscuits would have been nice!)

Check in was smooth and the staff polite and efficient as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. I left the hotel at 7am in the morning and checked in for my flight, dropped off my bags and was through security by 7:30am!

The M&S store in the terminal is useful for buying snacks and drinks if you don`t want to splurge on the high prices in the hotel restaurants.

I will certainly stay again the next time I have an early flight from Heathrow.

Stayed here for one night same as last year. Unfortunately, the price had doubled in that time. Maybe we got a really good deal last time?
However, the welcome, service, and Vivre Restaurant had not changed and our friends joined us there for a superb meal, reasonable priced food and wine.
The hotel is well equipped, quiet despite aircraft proximity, and comfortable - ideal to begin a holiday. We will return again in Sept all being well...

Room Tip: Probably all good rooms...

We stayed here last week as we were catching a flight from terminal 5 the next day.

Although it appears expensive it worked out a lot more to park outside the city in a cheaper hotel and travel into the airport. We had a superior room with free buffet breakfast (plenty to choose from) and parking for upto 8 days.

The room was large and very comfortable, perfect to relax in before an 8 hour flight!!
5 minutes walk to the terminal under a covered walkway, perfect.

We will definitely consider using this airport again in the future when catching a flight from heathrow terminal 5.

Stayed here 2 nights at the start of an European trip. It was perfect - sparkling modern rooms with a comfortable bed and two restaurants with amazing food (the breakfast is £19 and completely worth it!).

Having arrived weary due to a long flight from yvr, I was glad it was walking distance! If you want to pinch your pennies there is a m&s literally right in front of the entrance to Sofitel that sells instant meals for good prices. We used our two nights to explore London - its convenient in that we could walk right to the tube station of heathrow.

It's about 40 minutes away from central London but for the price you pay, IMO it's worth it to stay in Sofitel and get a super clean, modern comfortable room for a more reasonable rate than in the city. The prices may of course differ but this is what it was at the time f our stay. Will most definitely be back!
