“Good hotel convenient for Heathrow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I managed to get an excellent rate on this hotel. The room was fine although the bed a little bit on the firm side for my liking but it was clean, warm and functional. Very good sized bathroom with good toiletries and excellent shower. I didn't like the fact that the toilet was quite a way from the bathroom with no easily accessible hand washing facilities but it was fine for just one night. I would stay here again when travelling from Heathrow.

This really is quite a nice hotel, rooms fine, restaurant not bad at all, bar okay, but don't pay full price, it can be quite expensive if you do as all the hotels at Heathrow. I'd stay here again at the drop of a hat

Location may seem as though it's in the middle of nothing and it is, but you can take a taxi into Hayes and get a real curry. Ask for the Simpson Curry house, 5 minutes in a taxi, and the food there is excellent. Sometimes after a few hotel meals you have the feelling you need to eat something different, so take a taxi, really very easy.

Arrived late in the evening after a long day and a flight... To be told that the British Airways voucher proving I'd paid wasn't valid. This took a number of extra minutes while I slumbered against their reception...and then I was grudgingly allowed to my room and told it would be checked again in the morning and I might have to pay again. (ie pay twice!)
The rooms themselves are good. Separate lavatory with a dividing door - aka no need to shower in the stinky bog! Comfy bed and couch with work station etc all good. In the morning they said, oh yes fine, the voucher was valid... Nobody asked how my stay was. I suppose I'm just used to US Hotels where service is still considered a good idea.

In an ideal location, just moments from the airport, the hotel opens from an open Atrium style concourse, with reception are, bar, restaurant and gym all off this area, bright some colourful lighting there.
Our twin room was comfortable, clean, equipped with the usual flat screen tv (a 24 hour, internet and unlimited movie package available at a reasonable price I think £15.99) kettle and tea/coffee facilities, a fridge/ limited minibar, separate toilet and bathroom with complimentary items and ample towels.
We had a drink downstairs in the bar, which also has a view the swimming pool (wished we'd brought our swimwear!) then had dinner in the adjoining restaurant, very good food and a decently priced.
On site parking overnight was £10, again not expensive, I believe that they also have park and stay deals available.
Will happily stay here again.

One of the best Heathrow airport hotels I have recently stayed in.
Rooms very clean & comfortable. Loved having a bath & shower!
However some twin rooms had a double bed & the sofa bed made up rather than two separate beds.
My room was at the front & I heard the airport bus several times in the morning. Not sure what time they start.
Breakfast excellent & nicely presented.
Staff all helpful & friendly.
Thank-you.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room at the back. If wanting a twin specify two single beds.

At 50 pounds a night for 2 people you can't go wrong, just be prepared to drive and swerve like an Italian taxi driver to find and negotiate the hotel entrance, then take a deep breath and negotiate the temprimental entrance barrier whilst the car behind thinks you are incompetent in pressing a simple button.Reception fast and friendly,room comfy and quiet,the bar relaxing and table service good only don't ask for an orange juice and lemonade because you will get an orange juice in one and a lemonade in another,gave us a giggle and no harm done.The swimming pool looked very inviting but i am banned by the good taste guide for showing my costume in public.Close to heathrow and hoppa service good£4 each way but as a group of 4 we just grabbed a taxi for showing£18 and saved the hassle.

Room Tip: Room 252 very good

I've stayed here twice now, once after missing a late flight out of Heathrow (paid for by BA) and once after getting into LHR quite late. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, and I had a room with a couch, so it was fairly large. The breakfast was decent (but standard) for a hotel chain of this kind, and it is cheaper if you book the breakfast ahead of time. My main complaint is that the wi-fi is very overpriced.

Getting to and from LHR is easy via the punctual Heathrow Hoppa hotel shuttle bus for around GBP 4.00 - 4.50. In all, the Novotel is a good choice if you need a hotel near Heathrow for a quick night's stay.
