This was my second visit to this hotel and I got it for a good rate. I travelled by tube to T5 and took the pod to the hotel - 5 minutes! You want B station. When you get to the gate to the hotel they buzz it open for you and you pay them at reception £5 per person... More

Stayed here for one night before a early morning flight. Parked car for 4 nights. Hotel is ok nothing special. Just about a 3star. Check in was long. They can't deal with more then 5 people at the check in desk. The girl charged us for a "view upgraded room". Room was awful. Doesn't look like anyone cleans it. Beds... More

We paid £110 for overnight stay including breakfast, parking for a week and the POD return transfer for two people which I think is great value. The food was lovely and seemed above the standard of a 3 star hotel, and the restaurant overlooks the runway for great views. The POD transfers are an adventure in themselves! The rooms are... More

There are several other establishments in the vicinity.

Distinctly average. Have had the 'pleasure' of staying here for two weeks now. The place is a rabbit warren and reminds me of the 'spiders' or 'H blocks' that adorned older military training camps for many years. Last week my room was acceptable; this week really sub-par. There is an odd smell and a weird little shelf by the door... More

Trying to park an absolute nightmare! Food prices extortionate for frozen food. Bad start to our holiday- never again. Stayed at a different hotel last May at Heathrow- far superior for the same price

You can stay here and forget about bus and over priced taxi rides to the airport. A pod will take you directly to T5 with no fuss. A very good idea and not widely publicised. Hotel is clean and tidy and has a nice"light bite" bar to the left of reception as you enter the hotel. Great value!

We chose this Heathrow hotel as you can actually leave your car in the large hotel car park for the duration of your trip. Much better than having to take it elsewhere like the other airport hotels! Hotel is only two stories but has no lifts which could be an issue for some people. Our room was clean and comfortable,... More
