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.

Very good priced parking package. Free bus right outside hotel to T5 (and T2/3), and Pod to T5. Comfy beds and amenities good for one night. Hotel dated but that's ok for the one night. Bar and restaurant adequate if expensive.

Very pleased with all the arrangements made by FHR. The hotel was very adequate for an overnight stay and parking was a real bonus. Staff very he,pful and courteous. If I were to be critical, it would be (1) The price to upgrade to a slighly larger room was far too high (2) Whilst the restaurant was good, adding an automatic 12.5% gratuity is naughty! (3) The toilet in our room was at a funny angle and I fear could be a problem for larger people. Other than that, it worked really well for us.

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

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.
