Fancy a curry? then check out Madhu’s Heathrow, its first rate offering Punjabi cuisine with a Kenyan Twist. Alternately the Sports Bar and Grill offers a traditional pub atmosphere, drinks and food.
The hotel is arranged around a central atrium with the pool and bar in the centre of that. If its time for the kids to let of some steam or time for cocktails then this is the place to be.
There is ample parking around the hotel, check our options when booking to what best suits. We have stayed during the working week and at the height of summer holidays with parking always available.
The hotel is served by the Hoppa buses with routes to all Heathrow Terminals, if though you are travelling in a group then check taxi prices with the concierge you may find it is cheaper than individual Hoppa tickets.
