    Was a great hotel for our overnight layover. We had a family room with 3 twin bed. The room was a little small, the decor a bit dated, but it was very clean and the bathroom even had a tub!! We had a nice dinner in the hotel restaurant watching planes take off, but the best part of staying at the Thistle is the ease of getting there using PODS from Terminal 5.

    Really Convenient for Us”

    Once we figured out how to get to the hotel (we took a free bus but could have taken a POD), it was easy to get to the hotel. It was nice to be out of the airport and into the suburbs and only took around 10 mins. We had a late dinner in the hotel, then buffet breakfast the following morning-both meals were really good. The room was small but adequate-no fridge though. All staff we encountered were especially friendly and helpful. We took the POD back to the airport the following morning for a bit of fun! I would stay here again.

    The hotel pushes the pod to t5 which is £5 each person for a 5 minute journey. You can get a free bus outside which also takes 5 minutes. It’s on the hotel side of the road just to the right of the entrance.

    Good location and hotel for lay over. Pod transport really great but at £5 per person per way adds up - especially if you wanted to go back to airport for some food. With added cost of pod makes a great value hotel jump a price range

    We loved taking the unique pod to the hotel from the terminal-so easy and there in minutes! The staff was nice, the room adequate. We loved standing outside in the lounge area, watching airplanes come in for a landing...so close! So nice to be able to see. A perfect place to stay when leaving the following day.

    We opted for the basic room at a great price 48 pounds so though the room was small it was very clean with very comfortable beds, comfortable pillows, AC worked well though we didn't need it. Our only comment is that we had a bit of trouble flushing the toilet - a bit hit or miss to get it to flush properly. Great breakfast buffet!

    I may say the location is great because from Heathrow Terminal 5 you can get a bus going near the hotel and the wonderful thing is it is FREE!!! And vice versa going to the airport too. The staff are friendly and helpful and even it is near the run way you won't hear any noise... that is why we keep on coming back to this hotel...

    Value/comfort/clean”

    Spent one night here between flights. Cheapest option to arrive is local bus 423 (free) from T5 and alight at the second stop outside Premier Inn then cross the road to the hotel. Unfortunately the hotel exterior lacks any redeeming features. Once inside it is vast, sprawling and a little dated with the feel of a 1930s ocean liner. Check in was quick and friendly. The rooms while on the small side are comfortable with great king size beds and modern, clean bathrooms. There was very little outside noise at all. Breakfast is £10 for a very good buffet in a lovely space with fantastic views of the airport. There are vending machines for anything you may have forgotten and a useful cafe with quick snacks etc in the lobby. No gym but he local area is good for a run. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel pre or post flight.

    Great location!”

    I arrive in T3 heathrow on a saturday evening - its easy to get to the hotel. Just take a hotel hoppa from bus stop 12/13 and it costs 5 pounds if you get it on the bus. its about a 15mins bus ride (first stop). it was a short overnight stay for me as I had a 6 am flight the next morning at terminal 5. Getting to the pod was easy, it was a 2 min walk on level ground from the hotel lobby. There was no lifts in the hotel but they are very helpful. Someone helped me with my luggage into my room and the next morning. the staff are extremely friendly! theres a nice runway view bar at the hotel and it was good to chill there after my flight. would def return!

    perfect airport hotel”

    This is a good airport hotel experience. Easy access by bus from terminal 5 to the hotel. Journey about 5 mins. Friendly staff. Although food stops seriving in bar at 11pm room service means no need to go hungry whenever you arrive. One special feature is the driverless POD that goes direct from hotel to terminal 5. Same price as the bus but a little quicker and more personal. This POD is unique to the Thistle hotel.

    Good value ”

    Comfortable room clearance and tidy. No lift to first floor but can provide assistance if you need help with luggage to room. Can travel to terminal 5 via Pod transit direct from hotel for £5per person takes approx 5 mins. Or get 423 bus from stop outside hotel which is free. Three Magpies pub serving traditional pub food at reasonable prices is aprrox a mile away. Nice wee walk or again free to use 423 bus from outlets the Premier Inn which is opposite the hotel. Coming back bus stop is right outside pub😀. The White horse pub is closed at hand food etc still good but much more expensive. Hotel has its own restaurant and bar terrace overlooking runway if you so desire. Good value hotel in good location for ease of transfer to terminal 5.

    Very convenient if traveling via Heathrow Terminal 5”

    We were only staying here while waiting for a flight the following day. It's very convenient since the hotel has both a shuttle bus to the airport and is also the terminal of the Heathrow Pod which takes you directly to the departure area of Terminal 5. The staff were very efficient and helpful during our short stay. The rooms were comfortable as well so no complaints. We had a pleasant stay overall.

    We stayed here for 2 weeks, location is very good because it is near from Terminal 5 and you can get a free bus ride (423) from airport to hotel. It is not far from Hounslow town proper. Although we have not try the "pod" but I am sure it is one of the factor of this hotel. The room is clean and staff are friendly.
