Very good mid-range airport hotel. Great location for T1,2 and 3. There is a Hopper bus from the terminals, but better still there are very frequent local buses run to/from hotel (Harlington Corner) from the Heathrow Central bus station (T1,2 and 3) and they are totally free within the LHR perimeter. The hotel is comfortable. I have been in three...

Senior reception staff and maintence and cleaners are all very nice and helpful. However, it does not make up for being very poor value for money ridiculous prices, higher than advertised at booking, for a very basic room overlooking a car park. I have stayed at many Holiday Inns and IHG hotels around the world is this is by far...

Ive stayed here a couple of times recently before/after flights and had excellent experiences both times. Great location for all terminals- the free TFL buses stop across the road and take 5 mins to T1/2/3 or 10 mins to T5. Parking is available on site and is comparatively cheap for the area. Staff friendly, rooms clean and spacious with comfortable...

The last thing you want to be told at 2 o'clock in the morning when you have a confirmed booking, is that the hotel does not have a room for you. This seems to be the norm for Holiday Inns and me, or is it just me? This is the second time this has happened to me, albeit the last...

Stayed here on my reward nights points, as I had an early flight. Easy-ish to get to from the terminal, as I arrived by the Underground, you just need to find the Hotel Hoppa bus service, which is poorly signposted in Terminal 3. But now I know, it'd be easy, but at the time it was frustrating. Nice quiet room,...

We stayed overnight waiting for a flight and it was O.K for that short stay. The decor is quite tired but it looked quite clean though there were little bits on the floor in the elevator and hall. There were quite a few messy half eaten food trays left outside doors in the hallway which did not give a good...

I usually stay overnight at a Heathrow hotel before a flight the following morning or early afternoon. I have been using Holiday Inns for quite a few years here.
