London Town

... handmade products. The square was decorated with Christmas lights and there was even a pen with real reindeers!

We then hurried towards the west end to a musical Jose had kept secret from us- we were so happy to find out we were seeing We Will Rock You! The Queen musical has been running for over ten years making it a really good choice for both Paul and I. Before the production we had a few drinks (me indulging myself in a strawberry daiquiri!) ...

British Museum and other stuff??

Today was going to be just 3 of us. Colleen's UCL group has a 2 day study? discussion? get together outside of London Tues and Wed. I'm not sure how much serious business is going on when the main items of concern were the menu (I heard some mention about smoked salmon and caviar) and who would bring the croquet equipment.

Last night Melanie asked what was on the list for today. I said that I tentatively had: the British Museum; the British Library; ...

London, Portobello Road and West End

... how could we resist!).

The story is centred around an Irish busker and a Czech girl who share a love of music and of course there is a romantic element included. The play has won 8 Tony Awards in 2012, including Best New Musical, and it was truly amazing. The production starts with some of the cast on stage while we, the audience, are gathering to find seats. The cast members are on stage playing fiddles, ...

Liverpool

Well we got up early in Liverpool and went for a walk around the city centre. We went down through the mall which is pretty good! We ended up at Albert dock an had some breakfast there. After breakfast we walked past a building that had a Beatles tour so we went in for a look! It was an audio tour and went for around an hour and I now have a much bigger appreciation of the band. We walked out of the tour and went on the Ferris wheel to get a better view ...

Stepping back in time

... displayed their usual awesomeness and now living in a cool climate area, I have several new ideas for my garden at home (and wishing for more space!).

We visited mums old home which backs onto Kew Gardens - she lived on top of her father's butchers shop during her teenage years. The whole street corner is now a restaurant/microbrewery so I had a cleansing ale and we chatted about mums time here. The really freaky thing is that when we were last ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Thistle London Heathrow Hotel West Drayton

    Very convenient

    from

    Stayed here for one night in June 2004 and took advantage of the 21 days of parking deal. Room was good (clean, decent size) and location convenient for Heathrow. Lots of parking space around the complex. Overall, no problems at all.

    A welcome break from lots of travel; convenient

    from

    We stayed here Thurs. June 10th in order to catch a very early flight the next morning. We had just experienced a crazy week of sightseeing and countryside travel, and had not been in a clean comfortable place for quite a while. The Thistle has a busy check in, however, the staff were fast and professional. True there is no lift but the hotel is not that big and only has two stories. Pack light! The room was comfortable, slightly larger than we expected, and very clean. We walked 2 minutes down the road to eat at McDonald's and get supplies (i.e., cans of lager) at the gas station / convenience store, thus skipped the restaurants / bars in the hotel, and saved some cash. Very good stay and would return if I needed to spend the night near Heathrow.

    Pathetic hotel-stay anywhere else

    from

    We had stayed at the Thistle Tower Hotel on May 1,2004 and enjoyed it so 10 days later. when we needed a room near the airport for an early morning flight, we booked a room at Thistle Heathrow thinking it was owned by the same company and would be the same quality. BIG Mistake!!! How can an airport hotel that "caters" to travelers have no lift? Apparently they expect people to travel without luggage. The halls were dark, the small rooms were furnished in early 1960 cheap style furniture. There was constantly a que of at least 5-15 people at the front desk with only 1-2 people checking them in or out. Calling the front desk was hopeless because they were too short staffed to answer the phone so I had to stand in that que to ask big questions like where can I get some ice? or can I have a wake up call? (Incidently, the ice has to be brought to your room by room service at an charge.) The conceirge was one of the waiters. The food was overpriced and overstated. My "fresh fruit salad" was fresh out of the can. The staff were all young and clueless. There was nothing to do in the area but watch the planes land or watch bus tours roll in and spill their hapless victims-oops, I meant to say occupants into the lobby to join the eternal que at the front desk. This place doesn't cater to travelers- it holds them hostage because they are traveling and need to be near the airport. Thistle Hotels should take a close look at this place. It gives them a very bad name.

    Room nice, clueless staff.

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nights before leaving on a very early flight. Room was actually quite nice and clean, unlike what some other reviewers have said. It loks a lot better on the inside than the outside. Mattress was pretty much wasted (no support at all) but otherwise the room was fine, pretty well soundproofed given it's close proximity to Heathrow. Restaurant was VERY expensive, walk to McDonalds or the White Horse pub nearby for a more reasonable meal. We ate sandwiches from the mini mart at the gas station next to McDonalds.

    It works for me

    Thistle London Heathrow Hotel, Bath Road Booked through: LondonTown.Cost: 63.45 pounds/night (US$119.96), no breakfastLocation The Hotel Hoppa H4 picks up at Heathrow Terminals and deposits passengers directly at the hotel; 3 pounds each way, every 12-15 minutes, 30 minutes travel time.Facilities Like an American motel. Very clean. Dark hallways. My room had two twin beds. Large and deep bathtub with rubber ducks supplied (---------------------------------). TV had CNN.Food I did not try the restaurants this time. The breakfast is 13 pounds so I walked two minutes to a McDonald and had breakfast for 2.19 pounds.Nearby This is the suburb. The nearest pub is the White Horse, eight-minute walk to the left as you exit the main parking lot. At the McDonald there is a gas-station convenience store.

    Don't Do It!

    Disgusting Hotel!

    Filthy carpet, peeling wallpaper, freezing cold room, terrible room service. Just an appalling Hotel. I paid 89.10, I wouldn't ever ever ever pay to stay in this hotel again.

    A disgrace. I thought after reading the other reviews (after I booked though) that for one night it wouldn't matter. It does.

    This hotel is a nightmare and rooms are disgusting. If you can change your booking then do so.

    4 Stars more like no stars

    from

    This has to be one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in, tiny room ,torn wallpaper etc.The room was unheated and it was three degrees outside.I asked for someone to put heating on and nothing happened.A total disgrace which has left me seething with anger

    Appalling

    from

    This hotel is appalling. There was a half hour queue to check in. The staff had lost some bookings, so the reception area was like a scrum.

    Few employees seem to speak English proficiently. I had to carry my own bags through miles of corridors and numerous doors (no lift). The room was small and noisy and dirty. The food was overpriced and almost inedible (11 for a tiny peice of salmon and undercooked chips- no veg). I had forgotton my toothbrush- so would have had to pay 3 for a replacement from a vending machine- but this had run out so I had to walk to a nearby garage insead. Avoid it like the plague.

    Not recommended!

    from

    We stayed here after a BA Strike hit Heathrow on July 18th. Paid 68 pounds including full breakfast. Rooms were very small and bed uncomfortable - carpet stained and bathroom not very clean. Had to wall through a huge maze of hallways - no elevator so had to carry luggage upstairs! Restaurant staff didn't want to serve us at 10.30pm because they were closed. Service staff quite rude. I'm a travel agent and would not recommend this to my clients. Unless it is a last resort! OK for just one night when very jet-lagged!

    Does the job !

    from

    Good central location for airport. Rooms clean, tidy and well sound proofed. Staff friendly and helpful. Nothing much to do at Hotel due to its location and you are pretty much relient on its restaurant which is no great shakes and fairly expensive. Travel from the hotel to airport terminal 4 is a bit of a nightmare and ordering a taxi is to be recommended
