There really isnt one in particular, just about any of the heathrow hotels will be the same time away, and out of rush hour, hotels near paddington, would be similar time, maybe an extra 15 min only.

A budget is useful to know if you want recommendations.

my flight is 8.50am on a saturday in novemeber. Want to pay at most around £100, really looking for closed hotel to airport. Looked at hilton at heathrow and as I'm flying from terminal 1, doesn't seem easy to get to (think its a long walk and then onto a bus), also it was £145 and didnt seem worth it.

If you are flying from Heathrow then the Hilton is about the most awkward hotel to choose. There are no hotels in the central area where Terminal 1 is, and crazy as it seems it is not possible to walk out the airport from Terminal 1.

For 100 GBP what you can get depends on when you are staying. At weekends virtually every Heathrow Hotel is available for less than 100 GBP, so some of the posher ones are a good deal from a consolidator like HolidayExtras. Renaissanec often comes up at 60-80 GBP which is good value in a nice hotel.

During the week you need a budget hotel. The Ibis, Premier Travel Inn and Comfort Inn should be the frontrunners.

At Heathrow room rates can be a bit of a loss leader, some of the remoter hotels charge extortianate amounts for breakfast etc and the hotel hoppa buses are 4 GBP each way per person.

The Ibis offers good value, has a McDonalds next door and you can use public buses instead of the expensive hoppa buses. If you get off the stop before the Ibis, at the Marriott, the fare is free.

"doesn't seem easy to get to (think its a long walk and then onto a bus),"

As the previous poster says, there arent any that are walkable. Best plan is go through the normal type of hotel booking websites, come up with a few candidates in your price range then check the reviews here, there is no standout one, and pretty much all of them mean catching (the same) bus. Given that,and the fact that the HEX is only 15 min to LHR, thats why staying near Paddington is also a possibility.
