I thought a stay at the Thistle hotel would be a nice way to start my holiday before take off, but how wrong could I be. We got into our twin room and could hardly move around due to it being so tiny inside. Then my son lay on the bed and the sheet lifted from the top corner revealing a blood stained mattress that had been turned over to try to hide it, it was disgusting. As for the rest of the hotel VERY shabby.

From the moment we arrived the staff set out to help us. We arrived tired and late and unasked they offered us a room closer to reception. Room and bed were comfortable. Location was ideal for us to turn in our rental car. We will stay there again.

Polite and friendly staff, very nice room for the money and well located for getting to the airport in the morning for our flight. We didnt use any of the amenities other than the tea and coffee in the room which had a good size TV.

What you should absolutely know about Heathrow hotels: 1. The fact that a hotel is connected with the ariport by a "shuttle bus" does NOT mean that the bus is free. In fact, it costs $9 to ride. You can pay by cash only (unless you've purchased a ticket through their web site) 2. The shuttle bus stops operations at 11:30 PM. After that the only way to get to the hotel from the ariport is a taxi which costs $35 (as of Dec. 2011). Cash only. 3. If you are used to have free internet in cheaper hotels, forget about it. You'll have to pay for access. 4. No hair dryer in the room either. Plan accordingly to enjoy the UK :)

Staff were very helpful with information on free buses to T5, where I wanted to catch the Tube to London.

Location is the only thing that works for this Hotel. The staff is not the best of breed for a Hotel. The ameneties are bare minimum. Pricey for what they provide.

Rooms a bit small with two bags in tow. food and venues for drinks - great comfort and able to overloo0k main runway with landing/take-offs. Rooms are a/c (on floor - not good place to put them) and has double insulated windows for cold and noise.

Not sure why this is classed as a 4 star- in North America, it would likely be a 3, at most. Definitely convenient for the airport, the staff was very friendly, and the complementary breakfast buffet was very good. The rooms are smallish, but good enough for the night, and the shower had plenty of hot water and pressure.

I chose this hotel because I had an early flight the next day. If you are only sleeping and have to get to the airport quickly, this is a good choice for the price. There is bus going to the hotel from the airport, but you have to pay £5. The hotel is about 5 minutes drive from the airport.

This is a nice hotel, but it is difficult to find in the dark - and I have lived in W London all my life!. They need proper signage from the Bath Road, otherwise people end up on the Colnbrook By Pass. This hotel also has a restaurant with a fantastic view facing onto the run way at Heathrow - interesting ever moving picture of planes arriving and leaving. Would stay here again. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was extra but good food.

The Thistle is ideal as a transit hotel close to Heathrow. The location was a bit difficult to find as the side road off Bath Road had no signage for the hotel. There was no fridge in the room (which is dreadful!) The facilities seemed to be miles from our room and we must have walked that hundred yard corridor at least eight times during our one-day stay. The staff, on the other hand were courteous and extremely helpful, and room service rates were reasonable. The ultimate revue for any hotel is 'would I stay there again?' Hmmmmm....

Having stayed at this hotel due to events being held at their conferencing centre many times before I was expecting a nice stay this time. However on check in the staff on the check in desk seemed unsure of how to deal with the prepaid voucher and unwilling to communicate with us regarding checkout hours and amenities. The room was very small and apparently mid redecoration because part of the wall was a painted a different colour over a piece of wood that had covered a hole where a air conditioner had been replaced with a smaller one. Also service in the Best Sellers Bar was terrible. When we ordered food they brought out the plates separately with a five minute wait before the second plate of food was brought out and by the time the food reached us they were lukewarm and unappetising.

We've stayed at this hotel quite a few times and it's fair to say that the service is deteriorating. It was a long wait at reception, basically not enough staff and a relatively long checking in process. Also the Bar service is poor and despite being told that by reception that my card had been authorised, for charging bills to the room, the bar staff insisted on cash, even after phoning reception to check! It's cheap and cheerful basically, just a roof over your head for a night or two, as long as you are going out for the evening.

Hotel was clean. Front staff were friendly. Location very close to Heathrow T5 for an overnight stay. Bus 423 right outside the hotel takes you right in front of Terminal 5 and it's free.
