“Stayed two nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

The best part of the stay was the people, very friendly wanted to help, if they are trained it comes across natural. The spa excellent and the gym.
Bars were okay, slow on service just too many customers.
Breakfast could not want more choice. Well done

We had two stays in this superb Hotel in mid-February '14 and early March '14, on our way to and back from Argentina. To say we were astonished at the quality of this Hotel in every respect is an understatement. The short comfortable 7-minute stroll to and from T-5 for Arrivals & Departures is excellent, with a good supply of Wheelchairs and Luggage Trolleys available behind the Reception Desk. The rooms were large, luxuriously appointed with high quality fittings and most important of all, a very comfortable bed. The generously-spaced bathroom had all the fittings & trimmings one would expect in a 5-Star establishment, and more. But the best aspect was the 100% sound-proofing, as we overlooked the busy runways, but not a whisper could be heard when the jets took off. The Coffee Shop served an excellent Breakfast spread, and we had 2 enjoyable lunches there where the staff were very helpful and attentive. But the real surprise and icing on the cake was the dinner we had in LA BELLE EPOQUE Restaurant. Service was most discreet and of a very high standard. Every dish, exquisitely plated, was explained to us in detail, and the quality of the ingredients and taste gave it full justice. With hindsight, we made the right choice of ordering Champagne and staying with it throughout the meal, as each complimented the other. In our opinion, other 5-star hotels in the City we have stayed in on previous trips would struggle to hold a candle to the SOFITEL HEATHROW in all respects. And to save the best for the last, is our experience of their honesty in Billing, which is something we will never forget. Our sincere congratulations to all and please do keep it up. We look forward to our next stay there in the very near future.

Room Tip: If possible, request a room with an external view, although even those with an inside view does very...

My parents stayed here on route from Houston to Toulouse. They spent 2 nights but were unable to get the cold water tap of the shower to work and could only get tepid water in the bath. My father is going to be 80 years old in a few months and was not up to having someone come in the room to poke around with things, so they suffered it out. On check out they informed the concierge. She said to my mother that they would 'log' the issue so that the next guests did not get a faulty bath set. Well that is of no use to my parents is it? No compensation, not even a free night. This is not kind. Sofitel is off our list from now on.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel.

I was concerned to read your feedback regarding the stay of your parents, please accept my sincere apologies that they encountered this inconvenient issue.

I was really disappointed to read the response your parents received when mentioning this on checkout, at your earliest convenience if you could kindly email our Front of House Manager Vikramjit Singh on Vikramjit.singh@sofitelheathrow.com as I would like to investigate this further and indentify where more corrective training can be given.

I hope we will have the opportunity to restore yourself and your parent’s faith in us in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Being located within terminal 5 is wonderfully convenient but it's quite a walk from the terminal through corridors and empty spaces. The room is nice but standard. Only 1 small bar of soap in the bathroom. Nice stand alone shower as well as bath. Check in and check out were friendly and efficient. Nowhere to eat in the hotel after 10.30 (except room service) which for an airport hotel of this standard was astounding; the restaurant at the Holiday Inn 10 minutes away was open and buzzing. There were 2 waiters behind the bar but it seems you have to order your drinks at the bar; no roving waiter to come and see if you want a drink. We sat for 15 minutes and when no-one came to take our order, we left. Not what I expect from a hotel of this standard. Only other gripe; when we arrived for breakfast was being asked for our room number, then asked if breakfast was included in our room and then asked to sign a voucher. All this could/should have been done at our table, not at the wait to be seated desk. Felt like an onslaught so early in the morning. Why not seat us and then ask all the questions? Breakfast buffet; normal fare; eggs were available both to order and on the buffet but chef was not visible for me to ask for eggs done to order so I ate the plastic looking fried eggs which had been sitting under hot lamps for a while...again not a luxury hotel standard..have had the same experience at a Beefeater restaurant.

Was lucky to be 'guest of the day' which meant upgrade and business lounge access. The complementary turndown service with chocolate strawberries was just a delightful surprise
The whole experience was wonderful.
