This beautiful hotel is stunningly, comfortable and calming and a wonderful contrast to the busy London life especially in preparation for a long haul flight, short break or just a little holiday. Having arrived very stressed after selling and leaving our much loved house in Richmond after 16 years and in transit to Sydney we found a 5 star oasis of tranquility greeting us after the rush and bustle of the city. Indeed I recommend this hotel any time as a weekend holiday without ever leaving Heathrow as it is the ultimate in modern zen like design, completely soundproof from the time you leave the airport shopping area and walk down the amazing dream like corridor and arrive at reception with its beautiful foyer - even sitting facing the huge glass array of waterfall, flowers and tropical plants is a meditation in itself and so the escape begins.

We stayed five days from Thursday to Monday In May and found the staff extremely charming and helpful. We were allotted a beautiful room and indeed my husband returned a month later for a long weekend before returning to work and again received the same first class service. It is also easy to go back and forth from the Sofitel to central London on the fast train or on the Piccadilly Line. Sofitel restaurants are always excellent but the Brasserie Roux at this hotel at the rear of the room where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner opposite a tall glass container of flowing water surrounded by tropical flowers and relaxing music was a meditative experience in itself. The cafe restaurant Vivre is also to be recommended and good value. This review is long overdue but our stay at the Sofitel Heathrow was a much needed experience after the difficult transition of moving house and country and I can totally recommend a stay here at any time. It is a holiday in itself and we will defintely return when next we are returning to Europe.

Stayed: May 2010, traveled as a couple

2nd time I have stayed here. Rooms are still good. Service is still good. Brasserie was excellent. Service a bit patchy and it is expensive but it is definitely one of the best airport hotels anywhere in thw world.

Attentive staff. Very comfortable room. Good hotel facilities with choice of bars and restaurants. Only criticism would be the fact there was no drinking water on offer in the room which is, I think, a basic provision. I guess this may have been available in the mini bar, at what cost I cannot comment. Also, a little frugal on the tea and coffee facilities provided. Four sachets of milk allowed us two drinks each for the afternoon and evening, with nothing left for the morning.. Would certainly consider a stay in the future when travelling from Heathrow..

Just as good as the first time we stayed....excellent location to airport terminal and to Heathrow Express into London. Food places are excellent especially M&P Grocers in the airport. The rooms at the Sofitel are wonderful.
