Alternative to airport hotels
Posted 27-Mar-2016 on Hotels
We spent the last night of a recent trip at this "old-style" hotel to be close to Heathrow but in quiet surroundings. It actually sits in a rural setting at the end of a narrow lane despite being only about ten miles from the airport. Need GPS/Satnav or a good map to find it. No lift to our "first floor" room, but not a problem for us. Room and bathroom clean, well-lit, nicely furnished, up-to-date, and quiet. Upscale dining room at the hotel looked elegant with menu to match, but we ate a good local pub that evening. Lots of parking. Drive to Heathrow in very early morning before rush hour took about 25 minutes. Took A4 not the M which took us past several petrol stations and fairly directly to rental car return. A very good alternative to airport hotels, and would stay again.
