Not a prickly Thistle
Having booked, I began to read the reviews and wondered if the bad reviews would be a real reflection on what was ahead .... I'm glad to say that they were not. Instructions on getting to the hotel from T5 were accurate and the bus driver let us know we had arrived. Check in was speedy and I was asked if I minded being right at the end of the corridor or not. Room was clean, warm and tidy with plenty of towels and pillows. Hot water was fine all through two days. Staff were all helpful and got me sorted out with the pods which are great. I had one meal in the restaurant ... a bit pricey and not overly imaginative, but staff were attentive and it was okay. I was using the hotel while doing business in Central London and will happily use it again in future.

2/10 Poor

Never Again
From walking in there was a dusty, old unclean smell. On walking to my room, there was a damp smell and buckets in the corridor collecting rain water. The corridors had a strong damp smell. Once in the room, it looked tired, old, dated with stained carpet. I also found out that the hotel bar closed at 2100, this seemed very strange for a friday night at an airport hotel. While the bar wasn't a major issue the overall cleanliness was. I checked out after around 30 minutes and drove home, not impressed one little bit. The lovely lady on the front desk offered to change my room, but seemed very embarrassed.
