(4 star hotel)
from the airport
Family favourite hotel
It might be incredibly good value, but the well-equipped, friendly Mercure hotel Heathrow certainly wasn't built on a budget. It has a gym, larger-than-average rooms, plenty of on-site parking and a kids' playarea. Staying at this Heathrow airport hotel, you'll instantly feel like you're in your own front room - though in fact you'll be within 10 minutes of all four Heathrow terminals.
There's a really homely feel to this 30-year-old hotel, which is helped by the friendly, welcoming staff and the warm colours and soft furnishings in the public areas. Kids can treat it like a home-from-home too: they have their own play area with toys, a Playstation 3 and an Xbox, and a special menu at dinnertime with home-cooked favourites. Parents will love that too, because children 11 and under eat free if they're with an adult.

The car parking was a problem,no marked spaces availableMrs Robinson (Heathrow Mercure)
Our three rooms were not together. The staff were very helpful.
I was very impressed with the hotel. The rooms were lovely and clean as was the whole hotel. Very good price and the staff were very helpful and efficient. Easy pickup from outside the hotel to air terminal. Would definitely use again and would recommendMrs Weller (Heathrow Mercure)
