This is one of the best value-for-money hotels in the UK. Comfortable rooms, excellent facilities and helpful staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by anne2111 great value for pre departure flight
Very easy to find and rooms clean and tidy, the only issue I had was that for a new hotel the beds were very soft and you kept falling into the middle!

I just love the HIE brand. The buildings always seem recently completed and immaculate. After 2 weeks travelling in hotels that could do with a big upgrade, I found myself taking photos of the ensuite! Sad maybe, but you just don't see immaculate bathrooms anymore. Firstly, there is no bath - which I like - most hotel baths are designed for children it seems and worse than pointless. The shower cubicle was finished in a lovely black tile and was a good size - enough for two if that is of interest to the reader!
Everything is like new. Most hotels don't refurbish quickly enough and it shows. Hotels at a supposed superior class are no match to this one. I would definitely recommend. A great airport hotel, great price with all you need when beginning or ending your holiday.
A word about the inclusive breakfasts. I never understand the surly comments about HIE breakfast - its included as standard and reasonable. If you want more, pay more and go elsewhere. At my breakfast there was adequate choice of cereals and bread with a few hot offerings - scrambled eggs, sausages and beans. There is not much else that is necessary and you can eat as much as you like. Do most folks have more than this to eat each morning?
My only complain is the £10 parking charge which I don't feel is justified. If the hotel was within walking distance to Heathrow, yes, I can see the point of a charge but it means those taking their car to the airport are charged twice. No chance of this being waived, I understand.
