Thistle T5 is the closest off-site hotel to London Heathrow Terminal 5, less than two miles to Terminals 1 & 3 and within easy reach of central London.

Staying at the Thistle hotel allows you to effortlessly travel to one of the world’s busiest international airports by Ultra pod network, which stops a short walk away. This 5 minute electric, driverless vehicle is the most eco-friendly and convenient way to get to and from Terminal 5 for an additional charge.

You can simply book a room at the hotel: a cosy standard room or a more spacious deluxe room, for an upgrade. However, you should choose the ‘park and fly’ option if you require onsite parking. (There are 450 spaces available.) Both options include extra speedy Internet access, available throughout the hotel.

The lounge is perfect for unwinding after a long journey or grabbing a quick bite pre-flight, with a selection of light snacks to choose. For more substantial meals, Runway View Restaurant, Bar and Terrace is open for breakfast and dinner; it also offers striking views of the Northern runway. If you’re flying early or late, take advantage of 24-hour room service.

Please note, there is no lift in this two-story hotel.
