I booked this on the BA web site so thought it would be OK, but nothing could have prepared me for how it looks from the outside, a tired 1970s building, arriving on the POD from terminal 5, you enter the hotel through a back gate and make your way around the back. Once inside we were pleasantly welcomed by...

We booked an overnight stay before flying off on holiday, the cost included parking. We also opted for transfer to Terminal 5 using the Pod. Overnight stay was great. Staff very helpful. Room comfortable and clean. Perfect for our requirements. What was amazing was the ease and speed of getting to and from Terminal 5. We will definitely be back.

We booked this hotel for long stay parking and access to terminal 5. The room was good the restraint good and the view of planes on runway from the restaurateur was great. Access to terminal 5 was by the Pod which was really good. Will book this hotel again really good value for money.

Used this hotel last year and have returned again. Great location and easy access to the Heathrow Pods. Room is small but adequate - could really do with updating. Restaurant is adequate but menu hadn't changed from last visit 12 months ago - needs updating. Having said all that why should the hotel change when so many people are using...

A great hotel and even better breakfast, as much as you can eat for free. If you are travelling from T5 use the pod which runs from just outside the hotel. The only down side, if they have a event on, the car parking are hard to find.

Booked for the access to the POD for Terminal 5 and good deal on parking for the week. From reading previous reviews I didn't expect much but the hotel was better than I expected....Very small room and bathroom but adequate for one night. Beds were very comfy. No aircraft noise heard at all. The bar area overlooking the runway is...

Oh my goodness this place is awful. Very dated decor throughout,all a bit tatty. Room smelt really badly of damp.extractor fan in bathroom obviously hadn't been working for years which is the kind of thing the management must be aware of but clearly don't care. Because of its close proximity to Heathrow I guess no matter how rubbish it is...

The Thistle is really convenient for T5 and offers good value park and fly. The hotel is brown tinged and dated but comfortable enough. There is nothing special or memorable about it, but it does what it says on the label of a bed before or after a flight. Our room was compact but reasonably comfortable and quiet enough for...

We stayed at this hotel for one night before catching a flight from Heathrow T5. The hotel is very close to the terminal, so really handy location-wise. It also has a bus stop right outside, which you can catch one of the local red buses from for free, and only a 4-minute ride to the airport. However, the hotel itself...
