The hotel is suited for Terminal 5 especially being able to use the Pod, unfortunately the service wasn't available when we returned
The hotel is ok but could do with a makeover to bring it up to date
We didn't use the facilities or have breakfast as we were up too early

All acceptable. My only observation is that the hotel is difficult to find using GPS and postcode. It takes you to the wrong carpark.
