Rooms a little dated but ideal for ‘pod’ and access to T5. Food and drink expensive.

Perfectly placed, would have 5* but for the problem with Satnav taking you to the back of the hotel where you can't enter it! Nothing special, but clean and edible food, all that was needed

The hotel is a bit tired but to be expected at a transit hotel, rooms clean and quiet, super convenient for teminal 5 using the pod system, excellent value when you factor in the onsite parking. Used it before and would certainly use it again

The main reason for choosing this hotel was the convenience of using the Pod system to get to Terminal 5. Unfortunately this is still not active. There is a bus which can be picked up from the Pod Terminal. The reason we prefer to use the Pod is because it avoids any traffic issues. The hotel was ok, it does not take cash only credit/debit cards which would be useful to know beforehand. Parking was no problem and pickup was smooth.

Basic hotel room, but very nice resturant overlooking runway. Sound proofing was excellent. Shame the POD was not working.

Great pre-flight hotel ideal by location and hassle free parking in the hotel car park as opposed to meet & greet offering. Hotel itself 3 star at best although staff were excellent, room ok and although the Pod was out of action a bus replacement was adequate. All in all for the overall price would definitely use again

Hotel was fine, good food, clean rooms etc. But, when registering we were asked to pay for our room, even though we'd booked /paid through yourselves over 2 years ago, but had moved the booking due to Covid. This meant I had to go through my emails trying to find the confirmation of payment from yourselves. This after using the postcode to find the hotel and being on the wrong side to get access.

The hotel is fine. Busy and only 2 people on reception so a little wait. I followed the directions on my sat nav and was directed to the Heathrow ring road which leaves you at the back gate which is not manned and the intercom didn’t work. Had to reset the satnav and go via the front door. The Pod to get to terminal 5 is efficient although it was closed for maintenance on flying back but a mini bus was provided. The room was clean and the staff friendly.

On arrival the hotel couldn't find my booking. After providing my emailed confirmation from Book FHR they located an email to them from FHR and said that unfortunately the reservation hadn't been entered into their computer system. I had to wait whilst they did so, so easily sorted but might have been a different story if the hotel had been full! Definitely more a hotel issue than FHR. Loads of good parking available and I kept my key while away. All the staff were friendly and service was good. Restaurant (more okay pub grub) and Bar closed at 10pm but there was a small deli type selection (including beer) available near reception for after that time if needed. My room was adequate and clean but the whole hotel is looking a bit dated in style. Pod to terminal 5 is very easy about 5 minutes well signposted level walk from reception through a gate with code you get when you but the ticket from reception. Price was excellent and I'd stay again if travelling from Terminal 5.

Very basic room but conveniently located near to Terminal 5 accessible by free bus service, with room rates and parking charges, whilst abroad, at very reasonable and, therefore, competitive rates.

Room very clean but dated. I would have liked to see a walk in shower, but that was the only negative. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. Staff very friendly and helpful. So easy to get to terminal 5 via the pod. Have used the Thistle several times and will continue to do so whenever we travel from terminal 5.

Great location, clean room, bit dated and very small but had everything. We said we would use the bus and waited outside the front door - we were told 'it comes from outside the door' - 20 mins later no bus, i asked about it and the man on the desk was very short in his reply saying 'its not our bus you have to wait on thh top road' so when i complained about it he gave me the code for the gate to use the POD - that was good and quick but at £5 normally per person each way i wouldnt want to pay!! We ate i the hotel and it was good but pretty expensive at £25 for 1 drink and 1 main meal.
