The hotel did not have the booking on their systems. We could show them our email confirmation from yourselves and proof of purchase, but it was not on their systems. At least 30 mins later and after several conversations we convinced them it was not our issue and they gave us a room, but we had to fight for it. They were going to take up the matter with yourselves directly. It was a very stressful start to a long journey. The hotel itself was fine, parking was convenient as was the transfer to terminal 3

Package of one nights accommodation with 21 days parking was ideal for us. We have used this Hotel and package in the past and have always been satisfied with it.

Perfect positioned hotel, just a little old and tired. A bargain nights stay including parking. Onsite restaurant surprisingly good with excellent views of the runway! Best thing is proximity to T5 using the Pod!!

Great for a stay before an early flight next day. Hotel looks dated from the outside, sales applies to internal decor. However beds are comfortable, nice bar on site and restaurant offers good value meals (particularly breakfast - which is excellent). Staff are friendly and helpful throughout, especially in the restaurant. POD from hotels to T5 is quick and efficient.

Everything was absolutely great. We stayed at the Thistle London Heathrow as we were travelling from Terminal 5. A very short walk away to the Pod and 5 minutes later we were at the Terminal. The hotel was fine and the evening meal was good. Everything worked like clockwork, so much so that we have made the same travel arrangements for next March.

Booked a package of one night hotel & 15 nights parking, signage to car park A , could have been better, however reception staff were excellent, particularly when they noted our baggage & that we using the POD, they changed our room to ground floor & nearer to the POD access. Room was typical of airport hotel, however beds were very comfortable, pillows especially so. Dinner was OK, but we failed to note the automatically added 12.5% addition to the bill, whilst it is shown on the menu, its in light grey print right at the end of the menu, however upon checkout the duty manger removed it upon request.Breakfast at £10 each, was poor value for us as we only had a cereal & tea, thus maybe an option to have continental at a more attractive price could be an option for the management to consider.

Hotel is great, very near to the Pod, which takes you to Terminal 5. Parking is a nightmare, very, very full and cars parked where they shouldn't be. Couldn't understand the receptionist very well, broken English, apart from that would stay here again for convenience

Room was fine, a bit noisy but that is to be expected that close to Heathrow. Parking good and the POD service to T5 excellent.

Very comfortable and clean if slightly 'tired' looking. Great veranda where you can enjoy a reasonably priced beer whilst watching the planes take off. And the pods handy too!

Very nice staff. Food in restaurant was excellent. Place could do with a bit of TLC, but that would only put the prices up. Overall it was very clean. Only downside was, it is noisy in the rooms, not from the planes, but from other guests.

Very convenient for airport and pod. Clean and comfortable bed. Shower disappointing as narrow and curtain not screen. Room was tired and shabby. Taking into account parking and transfer the stay was good value

The hotel was fine, comfortable beds and quiet too. The runway view from the deck beside the restaurant and bar is great. Just a couple of issues though: 1) I'd booked parking with my hotel stay and there really was nowhere to park. I drove round for 20 mins before my friend dropped in at reception to ask where we could park. We were told to park anywhere, even on double yellows! 2) Inside the hotel is like a huge square with rooms arranged round it and finding the bar/ restaurant took some time as it isn't as clearly signposted as it could be. The staff at reception and in the bar were friendly and helpful.

Good hotel very close to Heathrow Terminal 5. Friendly staff and no long wait to check in as they had plenty of staff behind the reception desk. Didn't eat at the hotel but the menu looked reasonable and the bar we enjoyed again with good friendly service and reasonable prices. Access to Term 5 is easy via the Pod which costs £5 each way but is quick easy and good fun arriving into the terminal in just a few minutes. We booked a parking package at the hotel. You keep your keys so the car is just where you left it on return. Just pop into reception to validate your exit ticket and you're away. All very quick and easy. We will definitely look at staying here again and thoroughly recommend it
