“very nice and chic”
Reviewed April 25, 2010

Arrived in Hotel, lovely modern and easy for going away on holiday. Service at desk was nice and friendly. Room a bit small but it is London. Swimming pool inside Hotel in close location with bar which is very convienent.

I liked the locality of the Hotel very close to airport. The only downside is getting from the tube to the Hotel. If you are travelling by car it is fine with parking, but if you go by foot from the Underground you have to pay £6 to travel from terminal to the Hotel which is a bit of a joke. The Hotels should subsidise this.

We stayed at the Novotel Heathrow for two nights over the Easter 2010 weekend. We found great rates for prepaid rooms on the Novotel website and reserved three rooms in total for our family group. The hotel was clean, well decorated, and quite spacious. The buffet breakfast was good and the one dinner we enjoyed in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Beds were comfortable. In-room high-speed internet, wired, was expensive but worked well. Parking was a little tight for number of spaces but we managed to find a space when we needed it. Check-in was rather bureaucratic and slow but the front desk staff were friendly whenever we needed them. The hotel is quite convenient to the West End via M4 as long as you have a car.

I've stayed at and reviewed two other Novotel hotels and I like this one as well.

For a London hotel you can't beat the price.

A short cab or bus ride from all the Heathrow terminals, the Novotel is very convenient for an overnight stop-over. I have stayed here twice now on stopovers and have found the staff always pleasant.

If you arrive late, room service is available, and I found it to be fairly good if somewhat expensive (it is London remember).

The rooms and lobby area are quite modern and there are a number of computers available in the lobby area for email, etc. Sleep was very comfortable. My only complaint was that on one occasion, one of the cleaners came to clear my room at 4am. I understand that they must have a very high turnover of their rooms, but you'd think this was something they would keep track of better.

With the discounted online rates this hotel is good value. It's close by Heathrow in a nest of similar boxy lodgings on the Hoppa bus line. Check-in was easy and accommodating. The lobby area is spacious and modern with online access. Room with an interior view overlooked the bar area - sealed window was noiseless. Mini bar, tea making, etc. Small storage closet. Charge for WiFi access. Toilet and bath separate. Restaurant was friendly enough, though mediocre without much variety and UK expensive for what you get. Included breakfast was adequate, though not up to the quality of the BA club, for example. We'd price shop and happily use the Novotel again for a stopover.

Stayed here for one night while on business.

I had a standard room with a queen size bed. It was nice and clean and looked as thought it had been refurbished in the past couple of years.

The service was nothing spectacular, welcoming and efficient.

As I was travelling on business I didn’t see much of the surrounding area but go the impression there was not much to do in the immediate area.

Would certainly recommend this hotel if you were looking for an overnight stay between flights at Heathrow or if you were in the area on business.

Ok room , well layed out and clean bathroom and separate toilet. I found that its a good stopover hotel but it is away from any pub or decent restaurant. Staff don't really know that well directions to anywhere and found it fairly basic but better accommodation than Ibis.
