The Plough Pub in front of Holiday Inn M4/J4 Heathrow

About a mile north of Heathrow Airport the M4 Motorway/Freeway parallels the airport on its way into London from the west of England. Junction 4 of the motorway is a spur that goes direct into the centre of the airport where Terminals 2 and 3 are located.


At this junction there is a cluster of chain hotels and an adjoining village, Sipson, that has some restaurants, pubs and small convenience stores. The hotels here are geographically the closest to Stockley Park Business area.

The hotels here are the Novotel, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn M4/J4 and the Premier Inn M4/J4. All are large chain hotels that can offer very attractive rates, especially at the weekend.


Although at a major junction of a motorway with nothing much else there, there is plenty of parking. Each hotel charges for its car parking facility.

All the hotels are relatively isolated. The only connection with the terminals at Heathrow being the chargeable Heathrow Hoppa hotel buses. Sipson, is a small village 10 minutes walk away from the hotels where you can escape the airport hotel prices for food and drink to a limited selection of local pubs and restaurants.

About a 15/20 minute walk from the hotels is the Bath Road. For those watching their wallet this is arguably the best place to look for a Heathrow hotel for the independent traveller.


Hotels here have stiffer competition from local food and convenience store outlets and the abundance of cheap, public transport opens up all kinds of possibilities, including free transfers to the passenger terminals. We have a dedicated page of the eastern section of the Bath Road at Heathrow, and for those using Terminal 5, Heathrow hotels on the western section of the Bath Road.
