Very reasonable
Everything about this hotel is reasonable. Reasonable location, price, comfort, food. Front desk is good. Every time I've visited I've asked for one of three particular rooms and each time one of them has been waiting for me. Probably not ideal for a number of nights but excellent for 1-2.

Great place thoroughly recommend.
Great location, if you like seeing the planes take off and land, this hotel can't be beaten. The pod back to Terminal 5 costs £6 and is so convenient. I would recommend this hotel for all stopovers

Not so close to T5
Hotel ok, but sat nav took us to the rear entrance which is close to terminal T5 and pod parking but not accessible. The entrance to the front of the hotel is a long drive from there and also to terminal 5, so not as close to T5 as it seems in the map.
