Forget the Hoppa Bus, forget the taxi, forget the airport shuttle, instead stay at the Thistle Hotel, the only Heathrow hotel connected directly to terminal 5 via driverless pods.

It’s only 5 minutes from hotel to check in, and only £5 per person to ride in the ultra modern, quick and clean pods.

The 264 well appointed en-suite rooms all include free BT Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, flat screen TV’s and are air-conditioned. You can choose between twin, double and family rooms with three or four beds.

With un-rivaled views of terminal 5 and the main runway you can watch the hustle of Heathrow Airport as you relax over a glass of wine in any of the three Thistle Hotel restaurants. The Oak and Avocado Bar and the Best Sellers Bar both offer drinks and light snacks throughout the day. Whilst the First Edition Restaurant serves modern British and European evening dinners in a smart casual environment.

The nearby Spring Health club with its swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and gym is available for use by hotel guests. Additional charges may apply.

There is on site parking for 600 cars, and, in addition to the pods, a shuttle service operating to all terminals.
