Fancy a swim? Staying at Heathrow? Then this post is for you
Heathrow Hotels with Pool
If time allows then what better way to relax than a dip in the pool. We thought it would be a great idea to put together this mini guide to Heathrow Hotels with Pool, not so much the highs and lows as the deep and shallow. Which pools are great for kids, for leisure or for a work out.
If we had to choose a favourite it would be the Sheraton Skyline, a big pool in an open airy atrium with cocktails from the pool bar. We have stayed and used the pool many times with lots of fond memories.
Family Pools, Leisure Pools or Exercise Pools
Whilst some pools are great for kids, others are better for adults. Some are best suited to a leisurely swim whilst others are great for exercise. Find the right one and everybody will enjoy their dip.
If you have had a long drive in the car and want to let the kids burn off some pent up energy then the pool at the Park Inn hotel is a good bet. The Pace Health Club sits alongside the Park Inn and is free for guests to use, the pool is 14m x 7m with a good sized area around it for non swimmers to sit and relax. Along with the pool there is a gym, steam room and sauna. The changing room has lockers and showers, towels are provided.
Another great pool for kids can be found at the Sheraton Skyline. It is a good sized pool where adults can also enjoy a leisurely swim. The pool is set in an atrium that forms the center of the hotel, tress, loungers and comfy seating make it a lovely place to spend some time, and of course swimming is optional.
The Sheraton Skyline is unique at Heathrow with its swim up pool bar that serves both to the pool and to the seating areas. Beer, wine and a great range in cocktails are on offer. The changing area is to the rear of the pool, its good to note that lifts to bedrooms can be found either side of the pool and that you do not have to approach through the main lobby if you do not want to.
If you are looking for Heathrow Hotels with Pool that are a little more intimate, less kids more leisurely dip then try the Hilton at Terminal 4. The pool is towards the back of the hotel and hidden from the main public areas, its not large but is nicely set out with panoramic windows to the outside.
The pool is open from 6.00 to 22.00 weekdays and then 8.00 to 20.00 at weekends. Children are allowed in the pool but only between set hours. Whilst the Hilton Terminal 4 forms part of that terminal it should be noted that the Hoppa Bus service is available to the other terminals and that the free underground service to all terminals is only a short walk away.
Lastly if you after a pool where you can get some lengths in then The Crown Plaza should tick the box. The 16 meter pool offers swimming lanes aside from the main pool. Children are allowed in the pool but only between set hours. In addition to the pool there is a steam room, Jacuzzi and sauna. There is plenty of space around the pool to sit and relax.
