I arrived this afternoon at 3 PM after having previously checked in online. When I arrived I was greeted by an enthusiastic, professional staff who within minutes gave me an envelope containing my key and hotel information. In addition I needed a hard copy my covid-19 test as per Verifly and BA to fly and the staff printed it and brought it to my room. Having stayed here a number of times, I can only say my experiences have always been outstanding.

Ideal for an overnight in Heathrow. Close, with excellent COVID-secure measures. Helpful and friendly staff at check in and throughout our stay. The room was clean and quiet with a very comfy bed. Had a good nights sleep and woke up fresh for our long-haul flight.

Although a little pricey for 1 night, it was so convenient for terminal 5. Our room was large and deserved a longer stay. We did find the air con quite noisey. Te bar area was pleasant enough and the breakfast was first class. Will probably stay again if flying from T5.

I suspect that when this hotel is functioning well it’s a very good experience, so I’m sure we’d stay again for the convenience of being at T5. But, our experience on 11th September was very bad. Arrived at 8pm and didn’t get into our room until just before midnight. Food had run out and priority was given to the big corporate event so we didn’t eat. We had no dinner and were exhausted after driving down to London. Nowhere was open at T5 itself to get food. People with bookings were being turned away at hotel reception. Only compensation we got was a voucher for a drink. However, the staff were lovely and doing their best in a bad situation. We felt very sad for them as it seems that this hotel is overbooking and not getting in enough cleaning staff to meet demand. It must be very stressful for them all. Once in our room it was very good - clean and the most amazingly comfortable bed. It was also very quiet. Although it was by now very late so we didn’t sleep for long. Ease of getting to terminal in the morning diminished most of the irritation I had felt. So, we’d give it another go, but we will be wary.

The stay at the hotel was ok, very over priced for a standard room. (£310 for 1 night and 12 days parking) The service in the restaurant and bar was excellent, as was the food. The service at the hotel reception was average. The room was nothing special but clean. There was no room service menu which was annoying. We were travelling from Terminal 3 the next morning and the receptionist advised us to get a taxi as we needed to leave early and there were not many shuttles at that time. We agreed. We were greeted by a very hostile driver the next morning. I checked with him if I needed to pay him or if the hotel had charged me. He said I had to pay him £30 cash. I said £30??????? He looked at my husband and said “it’s up to you”, so pretty sexist as well! He then took us to terminal 2 instead of 3, then when we arrived at terminal 3 and paid the extortionate price of £30 to drive for 5 minutes, he didn’t even help get our bags out! I expected to be ripped of with the taxi, but I’ve never paid that much for a 5 minute journey. I’d advise anyone else to get an Uber, which would have been £7! I’m disappointed that the hotel advised me to get a taxi but didn’t warn me about the price. Also, the driver made it worse by being hostile and sexist. Poor show all round.
