After long haul flight from checked into Sofitel before transferring the next day.
Check in was quick and efficient which was excellent after a gruelling flight.
Room was fantastic with bath and seperately show large bed and very comfortable chairs.
Had a great night sleep and then spent the morning relaxing in hydro pool and steam room which took away the aches and pains of jet lag. The gym is free but hydro pool was £ 25 but for two of us worth every penny. Easy quick covered walk into Terminal 5.
I recommend this hotel if transferring flight or have a very early flight. I will be using as my Heathrow base convenience to T5 means you can relax more and not worry about expensive or overpriced transfers.
