Comfortable room, not very big but perfectly adequate for overnight stay before flight following morning. Parking easy in hotel car park,( keeping the keys is the reason I booked this in the 1st place). POD transfer to terminal 5 very easy, only a couple of minutes walk to pod station from The hotel. Didn’t have breakfast as flight was early, but used bar & runway viewing terrace night before which gives a spectacular view of take offs. Will use again whenever flying from T5.

The room was not fit for purpose because the bedside lights could only be turned off by switching off the master switch by the door; we only discovered this after going to bed. The hotel management agreed that the room should not have been let and offered us another room; but, as we were already in bed, we declined. We were given free use of the "pod" to and from Terminal 5 as compensation, which we accepted.

The hotel is convenient for Terminal 5 but a taxi to 5 made it easier than the bus. Staff very helpful and gave us a room close to reception, as requested for my wife. In the bathrooms the toilets need to be moved further away from the wall. A lift to the restaurant is needed

Location excellent. Whilst clean the room was a bit tired and needs renovating - I would only stay here again due to the proximity of the Pod.

We like to stay at the Thistle Heathrow because of its closeness to T5 and the car parking with the Pod. It is surprisingly quite for a hotel so close to the runway. The rooms are not super luxury but adequate for our needs. There are a couple of pubs within walking distance and a bus stop right outside once you have parked your car. Check in is usually quick and friendly. We would recommend The Thistle for anyone requiring accommodation and parking at Heathrow T5.

Although the hotel is a little "tired" and needs some attention it is absolutely fine for one overnight stay and parking a car for a week. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant meals are good and the breakfast buffet is excellent. The close proximity to Terminal 5 and the Pod transport makes the hotel very convenient for getting to and from the terminal quickly and easily.

This is a well run, excellent hotel for Heathrow, especially for T5. This was our 3rd time for overnight plus parking and first time for a post holiday day room. It has competition from premier Inn just 100 yards up the road but we still prefer to come here. The rooms are just what you need for single night stays and they have a range of meal/drink options i.e vending machines, quick coffee shop style grab and go, bar menu and restaurant menu. Should you wish to venture further there are other places within 1/2 mile. BE AWARE that the 2nd floor rooms are not serviced by a lift. Check in/out was straight forward and by far teh huge benefit is direct access to the Heathrow POD. There is a free bus available just outside but at just £5 pp each way the POD is a brilliant option.

Thistle London Heathrow Hotel was excellently situated for our holiday flying from Terminal 5 which we travelled to using the pod a quick easy transport option. the hotel is fine for an overnight airport stay to be on hand for an early departure and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant overlooking the runway watching the planes land. There was also plenty of parking in the long stay car parks behind the hotel

We always use the Thistle London Heathrow when flying out of Heathrow Airport. We normally book a room at the hotel for the night before we are due to fly.Their car parking arrangements suit us as we like to keep our car keys with us while we are on holiday. The hotel itself is in need of refurbishment but think this is unlikely to happen due to the proposal for the extra airport runway. We have however always found our room to be clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly.

Decent enough little hotel. Pods to/from Heathrow T5 were the highlight, wouldn't stay there if not using them. Room was clean and the bed comfy enough. Nice and quiet so we got a good night's sleep. Food offer wasn't great but that wasn't important to us.

Hotel good. We had a lovely meal in the evening. Check in reception staff very efficient. Found us a room on ground floor as we had some heavy bags. Very easy to use pods. Out of the terminal and back to car in less than 10 mins. We certainly use again.

Very convenient for Heathrow. Friendly and helpful reception staff. On-site parking was easy, hotel room was fine. The bus to the airport was a bit lengthy, but using the Pod to come back was really fast and easy. Would recommend as an airport parking hotel.

Excellent hotel for a Heathrow Flight with the car parked en site - very useful .However best to arrive fairly early to get a good spot or indeed a spot at all as the car park was almost full at 5pm !! Eating in the restaurant was fab as the aircraft were landing circa 200 metres away - food OK but nothing to write home about & not cheap either - but this is London thus London prices .( Note no noise so speak of !!) The "POD " is £5 pp direct from the hotel parking area to Terminal 5 -takes circa 4 minutes easy peasy & so convenient too . Would use the Thistle Hotel again .

The Thistle was very handy for a very early flight from Heathrow T5, the Pod parking made it simple. I didn't use any of the hotel's facilities so can't comment but the bed was clean, comfy and I got a good night's sleep.

Hotel a little bit tired but still comfortable with good eating and drinking facilities. Perfect for Terminal 5 with easy parking and very fast POD transfer into the terminal. I would always use the Thistle when it's available at a reasonable price - the rate varies hugely.
