Dallas, Texas
Reviewed 4 October 2015

I vacation in Europe at least once a year, usually connecting from Dallas thru London - so I need a reliable hotel near Heathrow airport. The Thistle hotel fits the bill nicely. My second stay at the hotel was just as good as the first. Location is very close to Heathrow - you can watch planes take off from terminal...

Reviewed 4 October 2015

My main requirement when booking a hotel room is that I get a good night's sleep. Given this hotel's location bang next to a runway at one of the world's busiest airports, noise might well be an aggravating factor, but a combination of glazing, blackout curtains and eight pints of lager made for a Rip Van Winkel style snooze. The...

Reviewed 3 October 2015

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Comfortable and very quiet given the proximity to the runway. The place has a slightly tired feeling about it and could do with a revamp but it was clean and met my needs. The menu is the restaurant was rather limited but the food was good and reasonably priced especially given the location. The joy...

We wanted a hotel near the airport as we had an early flight and if you consider the problems on the roads approaching Heathrow, we didn’t want to risk missing our plane. The Thistle was clean and comfortable with on site parking and the staff were terrific. We went to the bar and had cheap eats with a cold drink...

Dont be too put off by the rather dated exterior of this hotel. The rooms are perfectly adequate for a nights stay either before or after a flight. Its right on the airport doorstep and if you are going from T5 the hotel has direct access to the Heathrow POD. There are some great deals that include breakfast and holiday...

I have stayed at this hotel twice over the past two weeks. Once to collect my sister in law from LHR T5, and the other to take her back. I chose this hotel because of the ability to use the pod system to get to T5. I have to say this system is brilliant – easy to use and takes...

Many thanks for you posted review, I am glad the hotel worked well as a stopover for you and you found the POD a convenient addition to our facilities. I will certainly look into the other areas you describe. We have recently upgraded our free wifi so it’s now superfast and accessible with just one click anywhere in the hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years. When you consider the problems on the roads approaching Heathrow, staying the night before a flight, is for me, a real stress reducer. I have always found the Thistle to be a comfortable and convenient place to stay. The real bonus is the availability of on-site car parking...

This hotel does what it says on the tin. I think this is the best option if you do not want to pay the ridiculous rates for The Sofitel. Yes, it is a little dated & yes, some rooms are better than others. I speak as I find and for a few hours before an early flight, it was absolutely...

Winterswijk, The Netherlands
Reviewed 27 September 2015

For me, airport hotels fall into three categories: 1. Hotels that are actually at the airport - you can walk in, or from, the terminal to your hotel; 2. Hotels located near the airport, with a free shuttle between the airport and the hotel; 3. Like 2, but with a shuttle that isn't free of charge, so you have to...

Checked in at 2230 so, to be fair, we did not see a great deal of what this hotel has to offer. Our main reason for choosing the hotel was access to the Pod for T5. Efficient check in and Pod tickets, £5 per person, paid for at the same time so in the morning we just dropped off the...
