A five-minute drive from London’s busiest airport, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow is a handy fly-and-flop (or flop-and-fly) hotel with resort-style amenities. The exterior may be a little dated, but once you’re inside it’s all about making the most of the facilities, including an intimate cocktail bar and a spa that’s open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The marble-floored, wood-paneled lobby is a hive of activity and leads through to a sleek open-plan restaurant and an interior courtyard.
Bed and Bath
Designed for comfort and convenience, the 459 guestrooms have a cozy color scheme (taupe walls, burnt orange cushions and chocolate-brown throws) and feature plush kingsize beds, sizable work desks and flat-screen TVs with more than 80 channels. The hefty curtains and soundproofing keep any runway noise at bay, and most rooms feature both a shower and a bathtub for a pre- or post-flight soak. Handy extras in all rooms include tea- and coffee making facilities and free bottled water, plus bathrobes and slippers (in the Deluxe categories and above).
The restaurant, Steak & Lobster, is the perfect way to top and tail your travels, with top notch London cuisine served daily.
Choose from a mouth-watering steak, freshly cooked lobster (all with unlimited fries and salad) or a veggie option. Alternatively, head to Annayu for spiced-infused cocktails and contemporary Indian cuisine (lemon sole with tamarind salsa, duck with black cherry and nigella seeds). Grab a table on the upper level for views of the interior courtyard. The Bijou bar is open until 1 a.m. every night and is a sleek spot for drinks and upscale snacks. The hotel’s standout feature is the Pegasus Spa, which features a sauna, a eucalyptus steam room, a plunge pool and a 24-hour gym.
In the Area
If you have time to venture away from your gate, take the Heathrow Express to central London; you’re less than half an hour away from Paddington Station, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Or take a cab to nearby Windsor Castle; the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world offers tours of its grounds, including fall and winter visits to the ornate Semi-State Rooms (provided the queen isn’t entertaining). Also nearby are Richmond, home to London’s largest royal park and charming riverside pubs, and Chiswick, a posh neighborhood dotted with boutiques and restaurants.
How to Get There
Really nice hotel, so didn’t feel like it was just at the side of Heathrow Airport. Really large rooms and a fantastic breakfast
The steak and lobster restaurant inside was also excellent and surprisingly not expensive at all.
If you like staying in a 4-star hotel next to heathrow which gives you the feeling and service of a top 5-star hotel, then this is your best choice.
Due to my work i stay often in this area and for longer periods like 2 weeks a time.
Over the past few years I have tried all the other local hotels but nothing compares with this one, the overall feeling is very pleasant and comfortable and for me it feels like home, the rooms are furbished with luxury materials not like the minimalistic, cold, noveaux art you see these days, yes this is a matter of taste, but i like the feeling of comfort and well-being not like i am waiting for a bus.
Service is 5-star, and their Guest-relations will go the extra-mile for you.
I go to gym nearly every day, and i can say their gym and welness area is the best from all their local competitors, it's good in size and has the latest equipment for cardio and weights.
For me the Steak & Lobster restaurant is not just a great for a top-class meal and entertainment but i can have here meetings during the day.
Over the past year i have been their guest for over 2 months and therefore became a platinum member, so it is obvious why i am happy with them and i am giving it 5 stars.
First Class hotel at reasonable prices. Staff provides excellent care and help . Bottled water
and tea and coffee availability in room was appreciated.
Hotel is first class in cleanliness, availability of different types of restaurants and room service.
Easy to get to hotel from Heathrow with Hoppa bus H3 at stop 10 or a taxi would be more
This hotel is beautifully decorated with a helpful staff who will provide you with the best of care.
First world problems. I booked the Radisson for a layover as there was a spa shown on the booking site. When I checked in I was told this is closed due to a fire.
Could have booked a cheaper and newer hotel nearer the airport if I had know
Great place to stay due to its location to the airport and bus connection to nearest train station. Very friendly and helpful staff and great service.We would stay again due to its cleanness,value for money.
