Very disappointed with the hotel. A tiny room, dripping shower and dirty bath greeted me after a busy day in London. This is not a place to stay unless you are desperate. The tired hotel rooms and corridors show a lack of understanding of what the modern traveller requires. As a regular IHG user this hotel fails to meet their...

We spent one night here. The room was pretty small for a double, we had one suitcase each and had to manoeuvre around them. The pluming was loud, the walls are quite thin. Food selection for dinner and breakfast was good but everything seemed to be served lukewarm! Our stay was probably a 2*, but it was relatively inexpensive and...

It's close to Heathrow .. you expect them to add a few bob onto all drinks and food... I got a price of £55 for one night ... Quite reasonable I thought ... Until I registered my car in the car park ..£16 for one night ( Wish I could capitalise numbers!) ... Receptionist did ask me if that was...

I recently stayed two nights at the Heathrow Ariel before my flight home. I found the check in fast and friendly, was given a room upgrade and guest of the day pass for discounts on meals. The room was clean, well stocked and the bed was comfortable. Being close to the airport I expected some noise, but my room was...

The Aerial does everything it should. Efficient check in, adequate breakfast (a couple more items than a HIEx and presented in a nicer way). Housekeeping were always helpful (we did not have our room serviced for the two nights we were there but they were happy to provide extra milk and shampoo etc. on request. Rooms are fine. Could do...

A typical airport hotel and a typical Holiday Inn. Check in was good as always, ideal after a long journey. Into the room, perhaps more akin to a large cupboard than a room, but that aside, perfect one night. The location is ideal for all Heathrow Terminals, just a short bus transfer away. Other pluses were nice bar area and...

I had a lovely experience staying at the Holiday inn near Heathrow airport. Check in was smooth, pleasant and quick and my room was ready as early as 1.30 pm Although the rooms are small and compact compared to other hotel rooms, the concept worked great. Cosy, clean and everything you could need. Room was very quiet although the hotel...

While I realise its a airport hotel its conditions were appalling. I think they built this one right after the great fire of 1666 and haven't changed the carpets since Room is small, not terribly clean and likely the worst IHG hotel I have ever stayed in. I think they believe that people will tolerate it because its right by...

Standard Holiday Inn Experience. New parking system at £16 a night. Good location for all terminals. Clean and tidy rooms. Bar and restaurant over priced and food not great. Local restaurants just down the road towards Harlington at half the price.
