A hop, skip and jump
The Mercure Hotel is around two miles from Heathrow airport, on Shepiston Lane. If you're driving, the hotel is five minutes from the M4. A bus transfer to or from any of the terminals takes around 10 to 15 minutes.
If you're driving and coming via the M4: Leave the M4 at junction 4. At the roundabout, take the first exit if you're travelling eastbound, or the third exit if you're travelling westbound (so not the road towards the airport). At the second roundabout take the fourth exit onto Shepiston Lane. After about a mile, you will see the hotel on the right, just after the fire station.
If you're coming from the M25:Leave the motorway at junction 15 and join the M4 towards London. Then follow the directions above
If you're coming via public transport: You can catch the Heathrow Hoppa, the airport's bus service, to the hotel. It runs from terminal 1 every 30 to 40 minutes between 4.17am and 11.38pm, calling at terminal 3 five minutes later, and from terminal 5 every 40 minutes between 4.40am and 11.20pm. The Hoppa does not run from terminal 4 to the hotel, but you can get from terminal 4 to terminal 5 on buses H51, H53, H54 and H56. Tickets cost £4 single or £7 return if you buy them in advance, or £4.50 single and £8 return if you buy them from the driver. Two children under 15 travel free with an adult.
