Good Location and Inexpensive

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
Convenient location,with shuttles to the Heathrow Airport easily available both ways and throughout the day for a small fee. Terribly designed bathtub faucet - does NOT mix very hot and very cold water. They simply come out simultaneously from the same faucet as two separate streams, making it impossible to wash/clean anything. Terrible oversight. Also, the shower cap keeps dripping non-stop.

Overnight layover at Heathrow

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 3, 2015
The location of this hotel was convenient for an early morning departure from Heathrow but that's about all I can say for this property. The room (1 double bed) was tiny and my husband and I had to negotiate every move because we could hardly fit ourselves and our 2 large suitcases in the room. There was a foul odor coming from the drain in the bathroom sink, and the light over the bathroom sink was burned out. The receptionist told us at check-in that Wifi was free but we found out later that it's free only for members of Holiday Inn.

Expensive stay

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 14, 2015
The hotel was very nice and the staff were lovely. However, it cost money to hook up the phone as ours wasn't working on their wifi which I believe also cost to have operational. Also, we ordered minimum dinner at their restaurant as there was nothing else near and it was super expensive. I only had soup, veggies and a glass of wine and my sister had a small dinner and a roll and a drink. It totalled over $70 US. Just surprised that it was so expensive. Waiter was super, though. We had spent 10 days in UK and never had that high a bill ever for a minimum dinner.

Ideal for airport

Would recommend Wed, Jul 22, 2015
Ideal location for airport and easy transport links to the city. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff professional and courteous. Didn't try the menu although it all looked very appetising

Functional, if nothing else is available

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 25, 2015
For the same price there half a dozen other hotels in the same area that are newer, in better condition, cleaner, and with staff that don't almost universally have an attitude. (Really - an attitude when they're working at a Holiday Inn?!) That's not to say it's a terrible hotel. It's just not the best option for the money. It's an ok choice if nothing else is available.

Good For Sleeping

Would recommend Wed, Jan 14, 2015
Nothing good or bad to say about the hotel. They don't believe in heat, I'll tell you that. Shower was warm but not hot and the room never heated up to my liking the thermometer was preset by the hotel. Other than that, it was a nice stay, good strong wifi and nice staff.

Overall, not the best place I've ever stayed

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 15, 2014
The HI Express Ariel is clearly living on borrowed time. It's old. They're doing the minimum they can to maintain it and squeeze the last $ possible out of it. Obviously, any hotel near Heathrow is going to be expensive, but beyond simple cost there is cost-benefit, and I don't see the benefit at this place. The standard rooms are very small, with barely enough room to fit down the side of the bed or along the end of it abutting the "desk" with the TV mounted on the wall above it. It's like a Japanese business hotel room, but without the thoughtful layout and clean facilities or attentive/useful staff. In my case, the bathroom reeked of mold and there was visible mold in many places along edges. The walls are paper thin. I could hear absolutely everything on both sides. The restaurant staff are obnoxious and the bar staff had trouble making the most basic of drinks. Check in was fine, so that's a positive. By shuttle, it's about ~20 minutes from T4 & T5. Cab is ~10 minutes. Take ~5 minutes off for T 1, 2, & 3. If it's all you can afford and you just need a place to sleep for the night then I'd maybe try it a second time (after checking again that nothing else was available) but I wouldn't otherwise expect I'd ever visit the place again. It's not terrible. It's just really mediocre for a lot of money.

Dining

Out the hotel front gate, turn left, next set of lights: a bowling alley! With food & drink at reasonable prices, people watching, and of course, bowling.

Airport stay

Would recommend Mon, Jul 28, 2014
Just stayed one night in transit between Ireland and home. Was able to check in very late, due to a late flight, and the room was comfortable and clean. Price was decent, too, considering the location. Cool round building.

London Stay Over

Would recommend Fri, Jul 18, 2014
Good experience. Clean room, no frills but good comfort. Easy to get to from the hotel on the Hotel Hoppa once we figured it out. Bus 555 also stops there and is free.

Dining

The Pheasant is a short walk into Harrington. There are also less expensive options further into the village.
