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 more expensive Sofitel and Hilton hotels attached to Terminals 2, 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 it's harder 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 2 and 3. The eastern section also has a larger variety of restaurant choices and access to local shops.

Sovereign Convenience Store by Park Inn Hotel Heathrow Airport

Sovereign convenience store by Park Inn Hotel

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.


Local buses to airport and beyond

The local buses that run along this section of the Bath Road are from a mixture of operators, the majority being the famous London red buses.

Free buses to Heathrow passenger terminals

Local buses are attractive to visitors staying in hotels at the airport because they are free to 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, such as the Sheraton and Heathrow Lodge, the journey is free to all terminals.


U3 Local Heathrow Airport Bus

U3 local Heathrow Airport bus

From the west section of the Bath Road in question, the 423,441 and 350 buses will take you westward to terminal 5 and the U3, 7 and 441 buses go east to Terminals 2 and 3.


If you board or disembark to the west of the Sheraton you pay the standard flat fare, which is still half the price of the Heathrow Hoppa Hotel shuttle buses.

Visiting Windsor from Bath Road West hotels

The area along the Bath Road is 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 and a great place to visit. There is a range of interesting places to eat, even a theatre to attend that can make an evening to remember.
