The hotel is one of the closest hotels to Terminal 5 at Heathrow. The Thistle Hotel Terminal 5 Heathrow is the only hotel with the automated pod link between the Terminal 5 building at Heathrow and an airport hotel. The pod is an automated capsule that runs very frequently from inside Terminal 5 to the Thistle Hotel Heathrow.


There are a couple of pubs in Longford village just 5 minutes walk away and a McDonalds close by. Free local buses run every 20-30 minutes from outside the hotel to Terminal 5. There are also dedicated Heathrow Hoppa buses to all the passenger terminals from reception and of course the automated pod direct to Terminal 5.

On a fine day the hotel has a great viewing area and restaurant overlooking the runway at Heathrow.

Although the Thistle is not the most attractive hotel architecturally from the outside, room rates can be very attractive.
