Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steffitap Excellent accommodation
I stayed there as my company chooses the IHG brand. It is a new hotel with brand new facilities. Comfy bed and nice bathroom (no bath but a shower) it does me fine as I prefer showers.
Breakfast is good- lots of variety pastries and even some hot food.
I usually leave very early to the airport due to my flying schedule but the reception always provides me with a breakfast bag- basic stuff an apple, yogurt, croissant and an orange juice.
In terms of location, if you want to stay closer to the airport; this hotel is very good. Other than that the area has not got anything to offer. Further afield you have ascot but then you need a car.
All in all will recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AM14 Enjoyable and comfortable stay
Our recent experience of the Holiday Inn Express was very positive and enjoyable.
We are a single family and stayed there due to its proximity to Legoland Windsor Resort.
The staff were welcoming and helpful and the food and facilities were excellent.
The only minor issue was the poor wi-fi connection but otherwise no problems. Very clean room with free tv, coffee and tea.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone especially as it is very family-friendly with activities and facilities to match.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buzz Bee Expectations exceded
For the low cost of staying at this hotel, I expected a budget hotel, but the hotel is much better than this.
Compared with major budget hotels, the room as a little smaller, but not too small. However, the room was just as comfortable and modern looking, with a power shower in a large cubicle. The bed was comfortable and the curtains kept out all light, allowing a comfortable rest during the day
The low cost included complimentary breakfast, which was buffet style. The hot food wasn't very hot, but this was the only complaint
Staff all seemed well trained and attentive
Overall, a much better experience than expected

Easy to find
Good night's sleep
Unable to get WiFi to work in Room 440. Reception said they will investigate
Breakfast wasn't relaxed on Sunday morning as staff were directed to begin clearing tables at exactly 10h30, despite me being mid munch

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by penfold62 Not close enough to T5 and poor rooms
Unfortunately our stay at this hotel started badly with a 40 pound taxi ride from Heathrow T5 and went downhill from there.
Our main reason for booking the hotel was to have a comfortable night before an early flight from T5 in the morning. The air conditioning in our room had a fault and although the staff tried to help with 2 fans the room was too hot for comfortable sleep and the window would not open.
The complementary breakfast did not open until 6:30am which would be ridiculous for an 'airport' hotel - which clearly this hotel is not - more of a 'roundabout near Slough' hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NZGrant Convenient Airport Hotel
We stayed at this hotel twice in July prior to flights at Heathrow. It is well located with on-site parking and easy access to rental car drop off points. The room was very quiet with a quiet air conditioning unit. The hair dryer by the mirror in the living area was smart thinking and provision of an ironing room was of value. The double bed in both rooms was poor as it sagged to the centre. Mixing bathroom and living room light switches on the living room side and putting a glass panel in the bathroom door is guaranteed to annoy your partner when you get up at night! The staff were keen to please but struggled with their English so there were a few misunderstandings.

Schönes Hotel mit großen, sauberen Zimmern aber ziemlich schlimmem Frühstück. Leider ist das Frühstück nicht abzubestellen.
Fernsehprogramm besteht aus einigen englischen Sendern aber kein internationales Programm. Von Al Jazira und Russia Today einmal abgesehen.
Gute Pizza im angeschlossenen italienischen Restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Octavios Distance from Hesthrow
All was well with this hotel but it may not suit everyone as it involves a bus connection from Heathrow which costs ten pounds per person return! This adds a significant amount to the cost of the hotel for a couple.
A taxi costs 35 pounds one way standard charge!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gdhillon Convenient
Convenient for our needs, but considering the price i paid, approx £90 a room, i was surprised that how much of an express service it really was. We had a wedding to attend, so lots of luggage etc, so our initial room was not large enough to swing a cat. Luckily the most helpful staff at reception - Aqeel - sorted out larger rooms on the 3rd floor for both rooms required. Be warned - No mini bar, no room service, and no iron in room....hoever the irnoning room was convenient, but as there was no water in the iron, and we werent allowed to use normal water, it took a few hours to request the iron water from downstairs. cleaning staff spoke little english, but were all very good. breakfast was a massive disapointment, all cheaper variations of kelloggs breakfast, so kids had to eat at my mums, as they only had option of sausages and beans ( the eggs were awful). machinery poured tea and coffee....we ddint attend our free dinner for this reason. parking is expensive, just park over the road for free on the residential roads..but so convenient with M&S there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daffywood The connection with the T5
I chose this hotel becase I thought it closed to the T5 for me to catch the early flight. We had four persons, the taxi fee altogether costed £60. It would be much cheaper if I booked a hotel near housnslow with the taxi fee. It would also have been more flexible to enjoy the night London rather than to catch the time to stay at an airport hotel that is expensive for staying and transportations.
As an airport hotel, the serving time of the breakfast should have been much earlier to meet the clients' requirement, despite a breakfast pack can be collected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vigour Nice hotel for business trips
Close the Heathrow airport, but far enough not the be disturbed by departing planes. The rooms are very nice. The only thing I did not like is the breakfast. As a person coming from the Balkans I'm used to lots of salads and vegetables. At breakfast there weren't even tomatoes and cucumbers... That's not big deal of course and not a reason to bypass your stay at Holiday Inn Express T5.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Plainly average
Reception staff were friendly, but restaurant staff were rude, lazy and completely indifferent to their customers.
Room was recently refurbished, but the carpet did not fit properly, and the shower was a bit dusty.
TV was really tiresome. If you wanted to watch TV, you had to scroll through 4 or 5 menu options (each option seems to land on a pay channel or service, not the free content). This had to be done each time the TV was switched on.
Free Wifi was slow.
Parking was expensive.

The accessible bathroom was terrific! Best I have ever seen and used! Very useful and attractive! Green paint on grab bars...shower seat attached to wall...small sink near toilet...everything solidly attached...WOW!
Is Holiday Inn Express renovating all their accessible bathrooms?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GC2340 An expensive youth hostel!
The carpet on the corridors was badly stained and looked like it was due for a very good clean or replacement.
Impossible to relax in the bedroom as the hotel was filled with school parties who were running round on the corridors at 1.30am and then knocking on each others doors at 6.15am. Despite being told several times by guests from different room there was no staff (from the Holiday Inn) or teacher intervention. Eventually when a teacher finally did intervene, they spent half an hour on the corridor talking loudly with the children.
Mentioned to staff when checking out and was told they could have moved us to another room. Really we had two small sleeping children with us!
Breakfast was very disappointing - cooked breakfast consisted of sloppy baked beans, sausage and hard scrambled egg.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disneyfans Beds are pretty awful very well worn
We arrived and were given one room the bed was so worn it almost touched the floor went to reception and was given a 2nd room and that was no better if not worse. We were then taken to a third room by the duty manager and it was slightly better so we took it as by this time we were extremely tired and I was in a great deal of pain with my back. We had 2 children with us so had to get the sofa bed made up which the manager arranged however the employee who came to do this was very rude. We asked for pillows for the sofa bed and were told we would have to use the ones off the main bed! And we had to ask for more towels. The employee said they were very busy and had none! Mentioned we would complain and suddenly he found some! The hotel was also very noisy. There was a large crowd of teenagers arrive by coach who were very rude and loud. Breakfast in the morning was chaos not enough plates cutlery or food available had to wait long periods for replacements. Only one toaster working and the queue was crazy for it so we went without. Not a good stay. We have stayed at numerous holiday inns and this was by far our worse stay ever.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by haimboaz Great Location
This hotel is perfectly located nearby Heathrow Airport. It is a good starting point if you land at night and have to start driving the next day outside London.
The room was big and convenient, internet was OK, and breakfast was reasonable.
Dinner is another story – the hotel has two restaurants: Italian and English. The Italian was full with 45 minutes waiting time, and the English was good with quick service. The variety is not big, but good enough not to go hungry to sleep.
The hotel is full with groups, buses come and go, so expect a crowded but convenient hotel.
As the hotel is located in the middle of nowhere, don’t expect too much outside the hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah42 Excellent Value for Money
We booked into the hotel for the last night of our stay in London. We were tired and ready to go home and had a relatively early flight the next morning. We arrived to the hotel and checked in, there was quite a queue but it moved very quickly. Staff were friendly and efficient.
Our room was the largest we'd stayed in during the whole trip to England and there was no hidden costs for having three people to the room.
The room was surprisingly quiet thanks to the double- double pane glass. I heard nothing outside and slept like a baby on my last night ready for a long day of travel.
The dining area was large and inviting. Breakfast was excellent.
I will stay here again when I return.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fran1250 Long way from the airport
The hotel is a standard Holiday Inn, so if you are familiar with the hotel chain, you know what is expecting you. Two things may be improved: the first is transportation from and to the hotel. It takes very long. My flight landed at terminal 4, and I had to go to T5 (two different trains) and then wait for the bus. Overall, two hours (it was in the evening). The web site is no informative on transport details, but I emailed in advance the hotel and they answered quicky with the details. The second thing is the food. I arrived around 11 pm, the restaurant was closed, and so was a pizza site adjacent to the hotel. I had to go outside to a market at the gas station to get something to eat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shuom Stayed overnight on layover
My wife and I had an overnight layover in London and decided to stay the night at the Holiday Inn Express after flying from Perth. Getting there from Terminal 3 was a bit tricky. We had to get to Terminal 5 and then took the hotel hopper, so the trip was pretty quick and easy.
Our stay was pretty good. The room was nice. The shower had good pressure. Breakfast was really nice. The mattress was a bit too springy for my liking and we sunk in towards the middle. The view was good to wake up to as well. It was a great way to rest up before our flight the next day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anon49 Poor Breakfast
We have stayed here quite a number of times and this was the worst breakfast, although the rate paid this time was higher than normal. The breakfast was missing sausages (and as regular guests will no, this is the only hot non-vegetarian breakfast item) and there was no fresh fruit - these are both options we normally eat. We have written to customer care with these comments but heard nothing. And we have since remembered that we were not offered a drink / points voucher, as we normally are when staying here.
