Whether you’re on a complete family vacation or on a business trip with work, getting to the airport can be a slow ordeal. In order to get the cheapest deals, many of us opt for flights with a ridiculous departure time to save pocket money – especially with the cost of living crisis.
Life can easily get in the way, which is why most choose to stay at a nearby hotel so we can enjoy those few extra hours before a long plane ride. Luckily, Heathrow Airport has several places to stay nearby, most of which have shuttle buses to get you where you need to be.
BerkshireLive has compiled a few places you can stay nearby to keep yourself out of trouble. We’ve included a rating, reviews, and price estimate for one night for one person on Saturday, May 29 – according to TripAdvisor.

Holiday Inn London Heathrow – Bath Road
Rating: 4.5 stars (243 reviews)
Estimated price: £88
Review: “Friendly staff, BIG room, very clean, comfortable bed and powerful shower. Very close to the bus station (two stops from Heathrow). Absolutely perfect. Didn’t eat in the restaurant but it is bright and spacious. Only problem is you have to cross a four (?) lane road with no level crossing! Can be difficult with children. However, not relevant if you use the shuttle bus as it takes you to the gate (more expensive than the regular bus and stops around 10 p.m.). I will return with pleasure!”
This stylish hotel is just a five-minute drive from all Heathrow terminals, making it an ideal location. There is a regular airport shuttle as well as a train station nearby to take you to central London. The hotel has many amenities, including a gym, lounge bar, meeting rooms, and activities for children.

Review: “The restaurant staff are extremely polite and helpful. Our food was fantastic, perfectly cooked nachos, perfect pizza not overcooked. The staff here can’t do enough to help you. The housekeeping staff were also extremely helpful when we had a problem.Standard is the same as two months ago, if not slightly higher.Would highly recommend Ibis Heathrow.
This affordable place to stay is just one mile from Heathrow Terminals 1, 2 and 3. They offer The Hoppa Bus shuttle service, which runs every hour from 05:39 to 23:00. The Hoppa bus also goes to and from the airport every 20 minutes for a cost of £5. The hotel serves soft drinks and hot meals at the bar 24/7 – perfect if you arrive at a tight hour.

Review: “We booked for the fury fight and went to the wrong hotel. The front desk men were extremely helpful as we were at the Eastbound travel lodge but arrived at the Westbound Travelodge. The Gearmeat staff in particular (sorry He couldn’t do enough to make sure we got to where we needed to be safe and sound. Customer service at its best. The most lovely man. Thank you so much, we had a great weekend thanks for your help. I can’t thank you enough. This man is a treasure to the hotel.

Crowne Plaza London Heathrow Terminal 4
Rating: 5 stars (665 reviews)
Estimated price: £87
Comment: “Staying here before a business trip abroad. Great reception staff, welcoming and helpful. I’m always concerned about the quality of sleep in airport hotels, but here the quality of specs in the design and materials of the rooms meant there was no traffic or plane noise whatsoever. We had a great night’s sleep. But to top it off was the fantastic restaurant experience. I went for the gnocchi, which is always a risk (even in some Italian restaurants) I’ve been lucky enough to dine at some of the best authentic Italian places, including the memorable Sartoria in London run by chef Francesco Mazzei Had this plate of food been served to me there I would have been extremely impressed so getting this at the Crowne Plaza was beyond expectation Big shout out to Chef Mikki This was backed up by great service first th class of Paras. An irreproachable.
The Crowne Plaza is connected to Terminal 4 via a covered walkway and also includes free transport to and from Heathrow terminals by Heathrow Express. A restaurant accompanies the hotel and it has a 24/7 gym for guests.
