good except for the location

Unless you are familiar with London transportation system, the location may not be easy for a visitor to find without asking local people. Front desk male representatives are almost impolite and unfriendly.

A couple of hiccups

Rooms are far too hot. Air con doesn't seem to reduce temperature and as you cannot open any windows it is uncomfortable. At dinner with my 16 year old granddaughter I ordered 2 half pint glasses of lager. I was approached first by the waitress and then by the restaurant manager saying that if my granddaughter was not 18 she could only drink cider. I tried to explain that this was not the case that the law states a 16 year old cannot buy alcohol but can drink alcoholic drinks except for spirits if having a meal with an adult. The restaurant manager continued to argue with me in front of everyone in the restaurant which was extremely embarrassing. He only conceded when I showed him the law on my iPhone. On paying the bill they then tried to charge me for 2 PINTS of lager instead of 2 halves.

Excellent Hotel in a Decent Location

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times now and it is currently my preferred hotel for flying through Heathrow. This is a great value hotel. It has a reasonable price, Free WIFI, and a superb breakfast with continental pastries, bread, English Breakfast (Sausage, beans, scrambled egg), fruits, yoghurts, and a vast array of drink choices. If you have ever stayed in an Americal HI Express, this breakfast is in a completely different league. They even have proper plates, bowl, cups, and cutlery. None of that American paper/styro stuff. The location is extremely convenient if you fly through Terminal 5, but due to changes with the Hotel Hoppa service, you cannot access the hotel directly from the other terminals. This is not a huge problem because you can use the free Heathrow Express to move between the terminals, or simply use the Underground to go between terminal 5 and London (Piccadilly Line, ~1 hr). So, if you fly United to Terminal 2 (the awesome new one), you take the express to terminal 5, and the hoppa to this hotel. If you are staying for more than a few nights, the lack of real clothing storage (minimalist euro style) might be an issue for some, but for a short stay this is not an issue because most of use our suitcases anyway. The hotel has a pizza restaurant, but my recommendation is that you visit "The Ostrich" or "Olde George" pubs in Colnebrook, about 15 minutes walk away if you can. The Ostrich has more creative food than the Olde George, which serves more traditional pub grub.

Below average Value priced EXPRESS

The Hotel has good location for overnight transit stay near Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport. The rooms had clean bathrooms with good quality linen but all soft pillows. Pricing was a good value that included free breakfast. Beds were less than comfortable. Rooms lacked a lot of amenities normally expected in in this brand. Each room was very inadequately furnished - only one Desk chair and no other sitting furniture or luggage rack. There was no rack/closet to hang clothes and no iron/ironing board.

Simple, Clean Convenient

Great value for an overnight layover at Heathrow. Clean, simple, convenient. Just grab the hopper bus from T5 and 20 minutes later you in front of the hotel. Excellent value for the money. Rooms are very clean, breakfast is OK.

Perfect for a short stay near the airport

I was a bit scared reading all the earlier reviews about the hotel staff. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely cordial and helpful. The mattress could be a bit better but OK for short stays. The complimentary breakfast was awesome with a large selection of popular breakfast items. I will definitely stay here again for my next trip through Heathrow. The Hoppa bus connection makes commuting to and from the hotel very convenient as well.

Overnight between flights

My wife and daughter stayed at the hotel. After arriving late in the evening although the hotel was only 3 miles from the airport, the only option to get there was a taxi. The taxi required a round trip payment so it cot over $ 40.00 to take a 5 minute ride. No one at the hotel could care less. overall the staff was not helpful. The elevator was so small it took 4 trips to get the bags to the room.

Very clean/modern bathroom

We booked this hotel because we had an early flight out of Heathrow. The hotel is very near the airport. The bus picked us up right at the hotel which made things very convenient. It cost 4.70 Euro per person one way. The hotel lobby is bright and clean. The room was very nice. It looked like the bathroom has been recently updated. They offer a hot breakfast ready to go, although we didn't have a chance to eat that. I would recommend this hotel.
