Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a good hotel for 1 night stands. We visited before an early flight from terminal 5 and the hotel serves that purpose well. The rooms are small with just enough room for the essentials. The pod service to the terminal is excellent and I would recommend it. That's it then, a recommendation but not for a long stay.

I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); accom. has to be convenient to shopping and/or sights, or to the airport. Impressive view of terminal 5, plane take-offs and landings! Relatively quiet inside the hotel, despite the airport's closeness. Staff great, rooms clean, everything worked. Shuttle bus, convenient. Great breakfast. Brilliant idea for the pods system, futuristic space-age - driverless transport. No time...

I chose this because on the map it looks right next to Terminal 5, but it isn't. There were no signs to it anywhere in the airport but I asked at the hotel reservations counter and they told me I couldn't walk it but to get a parking pod. I found this and pushed the button which said hotel and...

I just had a one night stop over. For my purposes the hotel was adequate. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly. The rooms are a little tired. My room was quiet and I had a good nights sleep. The resteraunt meals were from a set menu and were more than reasonably priced. I used the POD to get from...

We stayed here the night before an early flight and returned for another nights stay on our return. The hotel was easy to find (we followed sat nav) and the car park was clearly sign posted. We easily found a space (we arrived around 5pm on a weekday) and walked round to reception to check in, which was swift and...

We stayed overnight before a flight from T5. Room was comfortable but the bed was a little uncomfortable but there was a selection of pillows. We sat in the bar watching the aeroplanes land, then moved into the restaurant. Food was lovely with a wide choice and very attentive staff and breakfast was equally as good. We caught the T5...
