Heathrow Airport hotel

Hello,

Need a hotel for one night for an early-morning flight to France from London. We would like to stay at an airport hotel so we won't miss our flight. We are a family of 4. Any recommendations?

Thank you.

1. Re: Heathrow Airport hotel

Which airline are you flying? And on what day/date and exact time is the flight?

That will determine which terminal you're using and which hotels to recommend.

I have stayed many times at the Hilton at Terminal three. Short walk thru a covered walkway.

Cheers

^^^^ I think you may mean the Hilton at Terminal 4. There are no on-airport hotels in the central complex serving T1 or T3.

And the T4 Hilton, being on-airport, can be very expensive.

We are on a British Airways early morning flight to Marseille in August. The British Airways website says Terminal 1, but I don't know how accurate that is or if that is going to change.

Thank you for your flight information.

It looks as though the early am departure to MRS is at 7.40am, and indeed from T1. And that will be too early for the tube from central London. If you're staying in London beforehand, don't rule out getting a pre-booked car service as an alternative to switching hotels. Some well reviewed services are mentioned here - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g186338-i17-k48869…

As regards hotels for T1, those on the Bath Road east will fit the bill. Many are inside the Heatbrow free bus zone, meaning you can take a London bus to the central bus station for free (many run 24 hour services) and more frequently than the expensive Hoppa bus (£4.50 each way per person).

Premier Inn Bath Road is excellent for families. Also 2 children under 16 can eat breakfast for free with 1 paying adult. It's a hearty breakfast buffet too. Although there are now 2 PI's on Bath Road they are distinguished by their names. The other one is known as Premier Inn T5.

If you are already staying in London prior to this, then instead of moving hotels, use a car service direct from your hotel or apartment. All you need is at worst, get up 30 minutes earlier, because it can be quite a trek from the airport hotels using shuttle bus (unless you use one of the three on-airport hotels) to the terminals, so you don't save anywhere near as much time as you'd think.

Then, you omit all the disruption, hassle and lost time of a hotel move the previous day.
