Very convenient for T5.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 30, 2009

The Thistle is a reasonably-priced place (for a UK airport hotel) offering parking deals.

I stayed one night, left the car on site and then collected it on my return.

The hotel is in the 'village' of Longford, which has a couple of pubs (it was too cold and dark for me to explore very much). It's on the Hoppa bus routes but the ordinary buses stop nearby too. Bus to T5 takes about 7 minutes.

Heathrow is weird, because ordinary buses are free within its you can, for example, catch the 423 from outside T5 and get to the hotel for nothing. Or you can pay 4GBP and catch the Hoppa buses (to all terminals) from directly outside reception.

The hotel itself is fine. Long corridors on two floors, clean basic rooms with en-suite, ironing board, hairdryer, safe, TV, tea & coffee-making facilities (I did not find these but was later told they were hidden away in a drawer). The rooms are well-glazed, so aircraft noise is minimal...but the heating/air conditioning unit in my room was pretty noisy. Ear plugs are always such a boon!

But for one night, it was clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate. The English breakfast is over-priced at 15+GBP...much better to get the bus to the airport and have breakfast there. Bar food was also rather expensive (as one might expect) but adequate.

Staff were pleasant and helpful, and all facilities were clean.

So.....a hotel one chooses for its convenience factor rather than any other reason. But convenient it is, and it suited me.

Apologies for the lack of photos..too dark, too cold, too tired. :-)
