A name you can rely on

If you've stayed at one of their hotels before, you know what you can expect from the Premier Inn Heathrow Terminal 5 Airport Hotel: a basic Heathrow hotel with everything you need, but a high standard that seems at odds with the budget price. You don't expect everything to be thrown into the cost at a Premier Inn, so you only pay for what you need, but you'll always find the rooms and facilities make some higher-priced hotels look shabby by comparison. The T5 branch is no exception.

As if this wasn't impressive enough in itself, the hotel is just 1 mile away from Terminal 5 and your flight is just a quick trip on the Heathrow Hoppa bus away. It's so close that you can see the planes take off and land from some of the rooms. Not that you'd know with the curtains closed as you won't hear a peep from the airport in your room.

Take them or leave them, the little extras are at hand

If you're looking for food, the hotel has a cosy pub/restaurant, open throughout the day. Outside of the restaurant hours, there's a 24-hour Costa right in the lobby for sandwiches and drinks. If you're pressed for time, there are even vending machines with snacks, drinks and travel essentials, in case you forget something. There's a charging point where you can pay to leave your mobile, MP3 player or games device if you left your charger behind.

If you want to save as many pennies as you can for holiday treats, then the Premier Inn will let you keep track of what you're spending, without compromising on a great night's sleep or convenience for getting to the terminal. If you want to be sure of what you're getting before you buy, this is the hotel for you.

We recommend the Premier Inn Heathrow T5 for:

Great value - For what you're paying, you'll find it hard to believe just how comfortable the Premier Inn is.

Planespotting - Just a mile from the terminal and easy to get to, you can't say the Premier Inn isn't convenient.

Straightforward food - If all you want is a sandwich and a cup of coffee, or a good plate of fish and chips, for a reasonable price, then the hotel's restaurants are just what you're after.

Our customers rated Premier Inn T5 on average 8/10 (35 reviews).

Good to know

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period up to midnight at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £15 per day. This is subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 2.2m entry barrier. If your vehicle is larger than this, call the car park 20 minutes before you arrive and they can meet you at a different place.

During bank holidays, there may be some changes in how the parking works. Blue Circle will tell you about this if it affects you.
