Rating: 4 out of 5.

I chose this Hotel mainly due to the pickup location for my car hire from Budget which is literally in the same building in the foyer

Location to london heathrow:
As I had hired a car, I made use of the free budget / avis car hire shuttle located at T5 – Bus terminal 25 outside and it was a short 7-8min ride up north to Holiday Inn

The outside of the hotel – housing Avis and Busget car rentals inside the foyer

Because I got to my hotel around 8am, I asked for early check in which was an extra 30 pounds but its well worth it and I got my room and relaxed

Close proximity to all Heathrow terminals

Even though its so close to the airport I couldnt hear 1 plane going by at all! very nice quiet, modern and clean property

The reception area
first half of the large foyer with the rooms overlooking

Breakfast lunch and dinner served – if you get breakfast while booking its 11pounds compared to 16pounds if you pay after so its worth it – they have a nice continental breakfast with lots of fruits and pastries to choose from

The bar area with pool table and dinner and lunch menu
Loved the room! Spacious and modern – has all basic comforts – nice colour scheme
Beds are really comfy with choice of hard or soft pillows
plenty of space to put your things
clean and spacious bathroom
Cool shower with modern shower head – shampoo and body wash supplied
The view into the courtyard at the back

All in all, I really liked my stay here, its a little bit more pricey than some of the other hotels around but its well worth it with all the restaurants and eateries in the foyer also the car hire desk

Would be good if they had a real coffee machine though, that was the only kicker – but then again, we are in london and not Australia ;P Its the bars and pubs that are awesome here so no complaints, ill just switch drinking coffee to cocktails 😛
