Needed a T5 hotel as flying early. Chose the Thistle because the rates are reasonable, there is safe inexpensive per night parking and 'the pod' to transfer you quickly straight to T5 Heathrow. Rooms are small and clean but a little dated, but fine for a quick overnight stay.

The hotel needs updating and the rooms are small but this is my hotel of choice for terminal 5. I have stayed here several times and love the convenience (and novelty) of using the Pod to get to and from the airport. There is always room to park and the staff are friendly. There is a nice coffee stand in... More

Overnight stop before an early am flight. Hotel is very close to T5 - I was going to T2 which ended up taking about 30 mins by shuttle bus. Room was fine for the price paid. Got a good deal by shopping around online on various booking sites.

Had a 24h stopover and although I was going into London's West End to see a show, I felt it prudent to get back and stay near the airport, so not to rust so much in the morning on little sleep. I caught the free hotel bus but the pod would have been good at 5 pounds for the day... More

Well what do you say when you visit a very tired hotel. Everything about it lacked care and attention. I last used the hotel three years ago and remember it being ok. It has changed a lot. It really does need some TLC and a good clean. The two ladies off the telly spring to mind. They would have a... More

Stayed here a couple of times for trips out of Heathrow. Check in - smooth and efficient; rooms - comfortable and clean; bar and restaurant - convenient and perfectly functional; staff - polite and helpful; easy parking; free wifi; pretty good value; and the Pod to T5. A good option for the function-oriented traveller.

Hotel is nice enough for a one night stay before your flight. It's close proximity to terminal 5 is great and the pod service is a nice thing. The whole hotel could do with bringing up to date. Restaurant is very expensive the menu is very limited and even when you get food it's very bland. I'm no foodie but... More

Stayed here after flying into Heathrow and moving onto Reading for another meeting. If you're interested in taking an upgraded room with a view of the airport - don't bother. If aircraft are taking off towards the West, you'll not see much that you can't see from another room as they are already airbourne by the time the get to... More

We drove here from Birmingham on a Sunday afternoon for an overnight stay before a 8am flight from T5 and car parking for a week. After a drink on the balcony watching planes landing at 90 second intervals we walked along the old Bath Road into the village of Longford for an excellent meal at the 16th century White Horse...

Thank you for the review, I am glad the hotel worked well as a stopover for you and you found the POD a convenient addition to our facilities. A recent guest timed their journey at 12 minutes from the hotel reception to departures. Next time you are considering staying the area, please look at the thistle website direct and take... More
