Booked on recommendation of our travel agent for overnight stay with one week's parking for mid-morning flight from Terminal 5. Very helpful receptionist who gave good advice on transport options to the terminal and sold us tickets for the POD. Evening meal and breakfast in the runway view restaurant, food and service good. Room was comfortable for our one night...

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 and thank you for your feedback about the restaurant, watching the planes land on the Northern runway...

Really cannot ask any more from an airport hotel. Only a short taxi ride to Terminal 2 where I flew from. I left my car here on a stay and park package and this was very handy indeed and I paid no more than normal nights stay in a London hotel. Bar area is lovely, a nice relaxing setting and...

This is the perfect choice for staying the night before a T5 departure. Great value rate included parking and it was easy to just drive in and find a spot to park. Reception staff were welcoming. Room was fine - very comfy bed, a bit of a fusty smell on first arrival but it seemed to go away. Aircraft noise...

A good location , just five minutes from T5 by POD and slightly longer by Hoppa bus to the other terminals. The room was clean, quiet and had all the modern facilities people expect, including a room safe.The meal in the restaurant was quite good and reasonably priced . For the plane spotters you can see aircraft landing every couple...

Stayed the night after travelling from Plymouth to catch flight the next day. Clean, comfortable, quiet hotel where we were able to get a good nights rest before flight. Reasonable price included breakfast and car parking whilst we were away. Use of the pod to get to the airport was also an added bonus. Will definitely stay here again if...

We booked two rooms prior to our flight and parking for the duration of our holiday. The hotel itself is good, staff are polite, rooms were comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great, a buffet with a large selection, while watching the planes land from our window seat in the restaurant. The only issue was with the parking when we arrived...

Many thanks for you posted comments. I am glad the staff represented themselves well and I'm pleased you had the opportunity to watch the planes landing on the northern runway at breakfast, this is one of the hotels best features. I apologise you found parking busy but pleased that the reception directed you round to the additional parking (car park...

Stayed here last night after a late arriving flight, chose this hotel as it has a great pod link to the terminal. Hotel is very tired and is in need of a makeover. However the biggest let down is the noise the cleaners make slamming doors in a manner that would do my children proud when they are having a...

Great location for Heathrow with access to pod direct to terminal 5. Good value for overnight stay including breakfast and 22 days parking. Booked direct with hotel. No problem parking car there were plenty of spaces when we arrived and overflow parking. Rooms were adequate for an overnight stay. Nothing special and as others have stated could do with updating....

Not the easiest place to find and the car parks can be very full if you arrive late in the day, as we did. The key to this if you are leaving your car whilst away is park it where you can on arrival and then move it as spaces appear in the morning. We found the room on the...
