We always use Thistle London Heathrow when we are flying from Heathrow as we like to leave our car in a secure car park without having to leave the keys behind. The hotel is very comfortable for one night's sleep and the staff are very good. We used the Pod for the first time as we were flying from Terminal 5 and that was excellent. It would just be nice if the owners could smarten up the outside of the hotel which looks very dated! I am sure we will use Thistle London Heathrow again.

Comfortable and very convenient for terminal 5 using the Pod. The Pod takes you straight to the departures area from the business car park next to the hotel. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel; both were fine.

We spent one night in the Thistle Hotel at Heathrow before we flew to Miami. The hotel is a bit worn but it was fine for the 1 night we stayed there. We used this hotel because we needed parking for 2 weeks whilst we were on a cruise. This was the only hotel we could find that allowed you to park and take your keys with you. We had an experience a couple of years ago were someone had stolen the tool kit from our boot whilst it was parked in another hotel were they made you leave the keys so that they could move cars around. We returned to the U.k yesterday and car was fine.
