    Comfortable stay close to public transport! I would recommend this hotel for anyone travelling with friends or family. They allow you to store bags easily before and after check in, and they have sorted us a cab for the airport. 10/10!

    This hotel was just fine. We had a problem with the TV working in our room, but that wasn't a huge deal. The room was clean and we were just staying for one night before catching a flight out of Heathrow the next day.
