Premier Inn Hotels at Heathrow Airport

Make an informed choice of budget hotel at Heathrow Airport


Premier Inn M4/J4 Heathrow Airport

Premier Inn M4/J4 Heathrow Airport

Of the budget hotel chains, Premier Inn is the largest in the UK and is thought of as having high quality relative to its rivals. Add competitive pricing and the great value offered and its no wonder that many British always check out the Premier inn option.

At Heathrow Airport, Premier Inn currently has three hotels spread around the edge of the airport, all of them recent build hotels that have opened in the last 15 years.

Heathrow Airport has four terminals literally miles apart from another, you could stay at any one of three Premier Inn hotels at Heathrow whichever passenger terminal you are flying out of. All of the Premier inn hotels at Heathrow have Hoppa Buses that shuttle to and from all the passenger terminals frequently.


Pricing across hotels tends to be identical for the same dates. All the Premier inn hotels have family rooms that can accommodate two adults and two children, normally for the same price as a standard double twin. All have car parking, but none offer free car parking. Only the Premier Inn (Bath Road) regularly offers hotel and long term car parking packages which offer very good value.

So taking each Premier Inn one by one ...

  • Premier Inn (Bath Road) - is located to the north-east of the airport. Although there are Hoppa Buses all of the terminals, Terminal 5 is the other side of the airport. Terminals 2 and 3 are the main terminals this hotel services. The hotel is outside the free bus zone, unlike the Premier Inn Terminal 5 though there are local buses every 5 minutes from in front of the hotel to the Central Bus Station between Terminals 2 and 3. Within 5 minutes walk is the airport bowling alley and at Cranford there is a neighbourhood shopping area with a wide range of fast food, cheap eats and convenience stores, chemists etc.

  • Premier Inn M4 Junction 4 - is located right next to Junction 4 of the M4, only about half a mile from the junction of the M4/M25 motorways. Its pretty isolated if you don't have your own transport and given this isolation and great access to the motorways this Premier Inn is probably best suited to motorists. There are Hoppa Buses if you need them and 10 minutes walk away is Sipson where you'll find a few pubs and restaurants.

Travelodge at Heathrow

The main rival in the budget chain hotel sector to Premier Inn in the UK measured by number of hotels are Travelodge.

Travelodge as a general rule are perceived as being more basic than Premier Inn with lower room rates.

At Heathrow, Travelodge have two hotels, one to the east of the airport, the other to the west. If you can bag an on-line saver rate you will probably have purchased a room for much less than any other hotel at Heathrow that night.

Other No Frills Chain Hotels at Heathrow

Premier Inn and Travelodge do not have the no frills budget market all to themselves. In our opinion the Ibis Heathrow and Holiday Inn Express Heathrow are well worth checking out as well.
