A plane-spotter's dream

The Thistle is the perfect hotel for plane-spotters: it overlooks the terminal 5 runway. The hotel itself is contemporary and comfortable, with free, unlimited wifi throughout, and staff that really go out of their way to welcome you. Another thing that's attractive about the Thistle is its location; most hotels are on the Heathrow ‘strip’ along the A4, making them ideal for transfers to either terminals 1 and 3 or terminal 5 - but the Thistle is perfectly placed between all so no matter where you’re flying from, you can reach any terminal in a matter of minutes.

Plane-lovers certainly won't want to miss out on dinner in the hotel's First Edition restaurant, which has a prime view of the runway ... and the menu's pretty good, too. 

If you’re travelling to the airport by car, the Thistle is a great park and fly hotel. It has 600 spaces on site, so there's plenty of room to leave your car securely while you enjoy your holiday. Transfer links are good too: the Heathrow Hoppa pulls right up to the front door, or you can catch the free Heathrow bus from the street to terminal 5 or to Heathrow central for terminals 1, 3 and 4.

We recommend the Heathrow Thistle Hotel for:

Families: There are plenty of triple rooms, interconnecting rooms or family suites.

Parking: On-site parking is easy because transfers are available day and night from outside the hotel.

Dining: With a large glass-walled dining room and sun patio directly overlooking the airport, you can’t beat the Thistle for spectacular views while you dine.

Fitness enthusiasts: Thistle guests have access to the Spring Health Leisure Club, which is opposite the hotel. It has a large swimming and spa pool, a separate ladies' gym, a weights room, a spinning studio, steam room and a boxing studio, and costs £10 per guest.
