Heathrow Airport is a gateway for many incredible destinations worldwide. From humble beginnings as a small airfield called Great West Aerodrome in 1929, it has blossomed into a five-terminal beast that is Europe’s busiest airport in international airport traffic. It’s no surprise then, that there is a panoply of hotels to choose from should you need to kip for the night before or after your flight. But how to know which are the best? We’ve put together a list of our favourites for you to take your pick from.
