I stayed here for 1 night in April 2017. I can't complain about it, it was clean, staff were friendly, and it was well equipped. It is ideal if you have an early flight and don't want to get up even earlier and travel from your home. There is a mcdonalds, service station with a M&S food right next door....

Stayed here for a meeting. Room was large and clean. Free WiFi was a waste of time would not connect anywhere in hotel, also no 4g or mobile signal. Evening meal was bland and expensive. Breakfast wax the usual odd choice you get at holiday Inn express better to breakfast elsewhere!

I stayed here for three nights whilst on business nearby. This seemed to confuse the receptionist when I checked in as she kept asking me about my flights and when I was flying back! The hotel is as you would expect from HI Express: functional but clean and comfortable. Other than the check-in process, the only other issues were minor...

Those of you who have stayed in a few airport hotels in your time will have a reasonable idea as to what you should expect – an overpriced food menu (where else are you going to go?), doors slamming in the middle of the night (rise and shine for the early departure!) and wi-fi that drops out the second you...

I booked a weeks parking and bed and breakfast at the hotel for the night of our return from holiday. The bus service to the hotel is efficient and £3.00 per person each way. Hotel checkin was good, met by a pleasant reception and given a key. The room was clean and spacious , lacking tea in the tray. The...

We had a car park deal for 4 days with one night at the hotel for a reasonable price. The room was quiet and had everything you would expect and to a good standard. The bed was very light and when you sat up in bed to read and lent against the back wall the bed moved forward!! The chairs...

I stayed here for one night in a double room, we had the flight the morning after at 6.45am. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and tidy, with TV and soundproofed windows as the airport is just five minutes away. The breakfast is included, and the coach for the airport is quite cheap - 3£ each one way. The lounge...

This hotel clearly has a lot of people traffic. The rooms we had looked ok, but under the surface a deeper look showed that this place needs a good clean and furniture replacements. My shower was black in the corners with mould stains. The lobby and bar area are dirty. Fabric on chairs are black with worn in dirt and...

Pretty typical of any property operated by Kew Green Hotels. This company clearly do not like to spend money on maintenance or anything to keep staff morale high. The hotel is generally grubby, one lift out of order, one has the most awful dirty floor and makes an awful noise and the third lift is just ok. The car park...
