Arrived at Heathrow on a wet,cold windy evening and were very pleased we had booked here. Though expensive some things are worth it as we didn't have to set foot outside the terminal at all. Also I had booked it when Lastminute.com had a hotel sale so it wasn't quite so bad. We had a junior suite which had enough room for the four of us and the children said the sofa bed was comfy. We didn't go to the bar or restaurant as the proximity of an M&S Simply Food in the terminal gave us all the dining options we needed ( living in France it's a rare treat! ) . There is nothing particularly special about the rooms but they are clean and comfortable , bathrooms are well appointed . Free wifi is a little slow but it was ok for recreational use. If we transit through Terminal 5 again we will definitely stay here

This is a modern pleasantly appointed hotel to stay in. Firstly I would have to say that the bed is the most comfortable that I have ever slept in, simply sleep inducing, feels like your floating on a cloud. The rooms are nicely laid out and quite large with extra touches such as a very luxurious bathroom including a full size bath, t.v over the bath, good quality toiletries, including soap that was a decent size, large towels, an illuminated make up mirror and robes add to the luxury. Room service was excellent and came quicker than advised. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The gym was well equipped and clean. Very close to terminal, literally just over a skybridge. Staff are professional, but I wouldn’t call them overly friendly. Just a couple of small gripes the towels were rough to the feel, and the make-up mirror was positioned over the toilet, it would be better with an extension so you can move it away from the toilet. All in all a fantastic hotel, I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We love starting our holiday with a stay at this hotel. Not only is it in a fantastic position for Terminal 5 with its direct link, being just a short walk in the morning, it is extremely comfortable and the staff are so friendly and helpful. This time we booked Meteor meet and greet who parked our car for us and were very efficient. A great hotel in a great location - we have already booked for our next trip.

Very nice hotel directly connected to Heathrow T5. Excellent food and service. Good gym facilities, Polite and friendly staff. Only drawback for me was it is very expensive even by Heathrow standards! I have problem also with adding 12.5% service charge for room service and a tray charge of £5 I recall! Good for early morning transfers and conferences.

Very convenient hotel, just a short walk from Terminal 5. And with the use of the free luggage carts it's wasn't a problem carting our luggage to the hotel. The service was outstanding; the rooms nicely appointed and very quiet. And the comfortable bed - wow what a blessing after a long international flight! I'll definitely consider staying again. It was a great way to beat jet lag.

As has been said in many reviews here, the convenience of this hotel for the T5 traveller is excellent. So quiet and peaceful yet having all that one needs for a relaxing stay. We ate at the Belle Epoque restaurant and the food was exquisite. We booked here mainly due to the convenience of the accommodation plus parking package and we'd definitely stay again.

This is a fantastic hotel. Don't consider it only if you're flying from T5 however, if you are flying from T5 there is a direct link from the hotel. . This is the perfect base for attractions to the west of London such as Windsor. Very hi-tec, modern and stylish. Our room was very well appointed and clean. The staff are very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Food good, the only downside is that the bar prices a bit on the pricey side.
