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.

Reasonably comfortable and very convenient for the airport, especially T5. Only slight grouse is difficulty parking sometimes.

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

Excellent airport hotel with very clean modern facilities and parking for up to 17 days included in the price. The real bonus was the easy access to the POD that took us straight into T.5. The restaurant offered a good choice of dishes at a reasonable price. Highly recommended if you are flying out from T.5 early in the morning but suggest it is worth arriving early the previous afternoon as parking spaces may be limited.

Good value hotel close to Heathrow. The Pod shuttle is a great bonus from the hotel, quick and easy to use. Breakfast was good. Public areas good, but rooms a little tired, but for what we paid you cannot expect too much.

Hotel - Very comfortable, worth a 4 start review. Rooms are small but only staying the night before flying. Staff friendly and efficient, helped me organise Pod tickets to terminal 5. Bar snack available at fair price. Parking - Terrible, main reason for 3 star review. Pre paid packages mean nothing. Had to drive around car parks searching for a space in Car Park A as per FHR instructions. No space at all. Ended up parking in another hotel area which had a couple of spaces. Not the place to park if in a rush or if elderly/infirm.

It is the first time I have booked through you normally I book direct. Maybe I was unlucky but my room was about as far away from the entrance as you can get and certainly farther than when I book direct

Great position for T5. The POD made transfer easy but it was raining when we left the hotel and the walk across the car park without cover seemed quite long. The bar was comfortable and the food in the restaurant was very good, with friendly service.

The hotel was easy to find, but finding somewhere to park the car was a bit of a problem baring in mind it wasn't even peak season! We drove round the entire car parks before we found a space just one space before the exit! The meal choice in the restaurant was quite good. The pod to the airport was a great way to travel there very quick and easy. All things considered the hotel is spot on for a stay before flying IF you can find a parking space!

We have used the Thistle hotel for many years off and on when flying from Heathrow. It's a little jaded and tired now. Needs a little love and attention.

Great location, helpful staff, convenient access to T5 Heathrow via pods we used. Rooms acceptable though not very modern ok for an overnight stay. Coffee/tea facilities & TV plus modest size bathrooms. Will use again & best price we found via FHR Airport Services Ltd
