Bath Road (West) Heathrow Hotels

Make an informed decision on where you are staying at London Heathrow Airport

The White Horse Pub Longford Off Bath Road Heathrow

The White Horse Pub Longford Off Bath Road Heathrow

The Bath Road runs along the northern perimeter of Heathrow Airport and is the main hotel strip. Staying at a hotel along the Bath Road is arguably the best choice for a hotel at Heathrow if you cannot afford the very expensive Sofitel and Hilton hotels attached to Terminals 5 and 4 respectively.

Off airport hotels have a habit, especially at the weekends, of offering 'loss leader' room rates where you may well end up paying much more than the room rate for airport transfers and expensive hotel food and drink. Staying at a hotel along the Bath Road enables you to 'escape' the hotels and eat and drink at local prices and much cheaper, sometimes free public transport to the passenger terminals.

The availability of public transport also enables you to spend time in somewhere attractive like Windsor rather than killing time in the hotel bar. Many Heathrow Airport hotels are isolated where its hard to 'escape'.

On this page we focus on the western section of the Bath Road. Staying here is especially a good choice if you are using Terminal 5.

We have a dedicated page of the eastern section of the Bath Road at Heathrow, which may be of particular interest to those using Terminals 1 and 3. The eastern section also has a larger variety of restaurant choices and access to local shops.

Restaurants, Pubs & Shops On Bath Road (West) Heathrow

3 Magpies Pub

The 3 Magpies is strategically situated above the main entrance to Heathrow airport. In the immediate locality are some of the largest airport hotels at Heathrow.

The Park Inn is opposite and the Renaissance is the next building east along the Bath Road.

The 3 Magpies offers budget simple pub food, most of which is well below the 10 GBP mark.

The Kings Arms Pub

The Kings Arms is located in Longford village opposite the Heathrow Lodge hotel and offers similar 'value for money' simple pub fayre.

Both the Kings Arms and 3 Magpies are at the extreme end of the western section of the Bath Road covered here so have totally different catchment areas.

London Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant Heathrow

Sovereign Convenience Store by Park Inn Hotel Heathrow Airport

Sovereign Convenience Store by Park Inn Hotel

In terms of quality of food, probably the best of the three pubs. This quality comes with a small price premium. Situated in Longford village next to a thatched cottage this is a traditional pub founded in 1601.


Kaniz Indian Restaurant

Kaniz is and Indian restaurant doing the full range including Vegetarian. There is a take away option too. Situated on a small parade of shops on the Bath Road about mid-way between the Arora and Sheraton hotels. The Kaniz has an off-licence situated next door.

London Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant

Offers Cantonese and Peking cuisine including a Dim Sum menu. Open for lunch and dinner until late.

Located conspicuously on the corner of a road junction, just east of the Sheraton hotel.

Il Basilico Pasta Restaurant

Down by the side of the Park Inn, a straight forward pasta restaurant serving pizza and pasta dishes at prices well below the neighbouring hotels.

Located next door to the Sovereign Convenience Store (below).


Located strategically at the Longford Village junction from the Bath Road, yards from both the Sheraton and Thistle Heathrow hotels.

The restaurant has a pleasant seating area outside, a nice option on a fine day if you can ignore the noise of the traffic on the Bath Road. There is a petrol/gas station adjacent which sells basic convenience foods and drink.

Sovereign Convenience Store

Handy convenience store that also sells alcohol and some take away food. Situated next door to the Park Inn hotel.

The Sovereign also is an outlet for selling Oyster Cards and Travelcards .

If you are going into London for sightseeing, using one of these is by far the least expensive way to do this from Heathrow using the London Underground.

Free Buses To Heathrow Passenger Terminals

One aspect of the local buses that makes them especially attractive to visitors staying in hotels at the airport is that these local buses are free for use all around the perimeter roads. If you are staying at one of the hotels along the Bath Road between the Park Inn and the Longford hotels like the Sheraton and Heathrow Lodge the journey is free to all terminals.

U3 Local Heathrow Airport Bus

From the west section of the Bath Road in question, the 423 and 350 buses will take you westward to terminal 5 and the U3, 75 and 76 bus go east to Terminals 1,2 and 3.

Visiting Windsor From Bath Road West Hotels

The area along the Bath Road is pretty much like the perimeter of any commercial airport. Many people just kill time in the lounge or in the their room watching TV. Close to Heathrow though is Windsor, famous for its castle but a great place to visit and explore with much else besides. There is a great range of interesting places to eat, even a theatre to attend that can make an evening to remember.
