Was the black mould free? Or was that an extra charge to the room? Only stayed one night before flight, however the large mass of black mould underneath the window could not escape our attention. It looked unsightly and could pose potential health risk. Shuttle bus took half hour to terminal 2 and cost £5 pp.

Cheap hotel, old and worn, cheap food. Pay little, get little. No sports facility. Nice view of airport from the bar and restaurant. I would not stay here again. Would aim a little smarter than a worn out 1970s concrete block.

Just stayed here for one night because of an early flight at terminal 5. Very easy to use the Pods and it made it an easy hassle free trip to the terminal. The rooms and furniture are a bit tired and the bathroom was very small but it was fine for 1 night. We had food sent to the room...

Thank you for the review, I am glad the hotel worked well as a stopover for you and you found the POD a convenient addition to our facilities. A recent guest timed their journey at 12 minutes from the hotel reception to departures. Thank you for your feedback about the food I will ensure I pass this onto the chef...

Looks like an army barracks, but has a few positives. Cheap, 1 night pre-flight stays, but not suitable for business meetings. Looks like a place being retained for a big sale based on location so just ticking along. Breakfast not bad.

Pretty typical airport hotel, great positions overlooking the runway and a great terrace to sit and have a drink. Breakfast was great, dinner was just below average, rooms were basic and old fashioned , needs some TLC. You have to walk through the whole restaurant to get to the bar which wasn't ideal

As soon as I came into the front door, I was greeted very nicely, and the customer service was fenominal from the very beg, the only thing I could add to this hotel would probably be Amity bags, other than that, this place is absolutely brilliant, and I would stay here again without a second thought

We stayed here for one short night before a very early flight the next morning. Checking in and out was quick and easy, and the room was clean—a no friction stay. The hotel is older but it's well maintained. The POD transportation system to the airport is just outside the parking lot, so it makes getting to the terminal very...

We stayed on a Sunday night before an early flight out from Terminal 5. We got a really a good deal including parking for up to 22 days and were attracted by access to T5 via the pod system. We have previously stayed at the Sofitel T5 but the price with three weeks parking was something around £700 when we...

An ideal location to stay when travelling from terminal 5. Being next to the hotel the Pod is an excellent method of transfer to the terminal. The staff were very polite and helpful. Dinner & breakfast in the Runway View Restaurant was very good. The restaurant manager "Ricardo" made you feel very welcome. Would visit the restaurant again for meal.
