I like this hotel! I have stayed twice paying around £85 for a night. (Compare that to £270 for the Sofitel!) It has ample car parking and you can leave your car there for only £10 a night while you are on holiday. Even better, you can take the excellent pod system directly to T5 by walking across the adjacent...

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. Next time you are considering staying the area, please look at the thistle website direct and take...

This hotel albeit a little tired still offers an outstanding service experience with quality and value. The Deluxe rooms are a little on the small size but for one night okay. The beds are very comfortable but the lack of space can make you feel trapped. Suggest you upgrade to larger room if staying more than one night.

Thank you very much for your review. I was pleased that you enjoyed it and also that you took advantage of our complimentary late check-out. The Pod is very convenient and it only takes 10 to 12 minutes from you leave the lobby till you are in departures in terminal 5. Hope to see you back soon.

Rooms are small if you like to spread out book a twin room as beds are only doubles. They seem to be cutting back on basics like if you want a bath mat you have to ask for one. Great location for Heathrow Terminal 5. Catch the Hoppa bus right outside. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

On this, my second stay, my expectations were set knowing that the rooms are SMALL and somewhat cramped for two people. We asked for a refurbished room this time and this was an improvement on the depressing unfurnished rooms. The beds (two twins) are small but comfortable. Fast Free Wi-Fi. Fridge and ironing board in room. The hotel is economical...

We stayed for one night on the 16th of January. Our first impression of the hotel reception was clean and modern; then we were directed to our room 102 in a separate annexe reached via a walkway and outside car park. Our room was dark, depressing and looked totally neglected with a strong musty odour. It was a chilly room...

The Thistle is a fantastic hotel if you want quick and easy access to T5. It's literally minutes via the PODs, which are accessible by a 2 minute walk through the hotel car park.
