Before jetting off to Lyon for a long weekend we were invited to try the Ibis Styles at Heathrow Airport to make our trip a little easier and we were really shocked at how luxurious it was.
Opening in July the Ibis Styles is the newest hotel available to those flying in and out of Heathrow, and with being a Styles you get complimentary Wi-Fi, breakfast and a 24hr reception, so no matter what time your flight is there’s someone on the main desk.
We used the train and then hopped on a local bus to get to and from Heathrow which ran every few minutes and were free to use. We’d recommend these over the Hoppa service you have to pay for that only run once an hour.
We stayed in a crazily big family room which we were told were that size so kids had room to play and not feel restricted, but being without kids we just had oodles of room for our cases!
By the side of the bed we had a super cute refreshment trolley that was where your tea, coffee and kettle were hidden away.
The bathroom ‘quacked’ me right up, geddit?! The shower was great and the room was really fresh and clean.
We dined in the restaurant downstairs and have to say, the service was top notch. Our waiter had great banter, was really attentive and we were shocked at how good the wine menu was!
The Sweet Bed by ibis Styles which is designed, tested and perfected for the ultimate sleep did not let us down in any way. It was so comfy that even the prospect of going on holiday didn’t make me want to get out of it! And can we take a minute to look at how it’s floating, that’s not a trick or photo editing, it’s actually like that.
Above the bed, we had a witty piece of artwork that made me chuckle, and other rooms have humorous artwork of skydivers and astronauts line the rooms, as well as an eclectic mix of Da Vinci prints which I love the idea of.
Complimentary breakfast is served from 5am for guests catching early flights like ourselves so we just grabbed a few mini croissants for the bus journey into the terminal to save time once in the airport. There was a huge selection of cold foods that comes in with price of your room, but a cooked breakfast is available at an extra cost if you have the time.
We really enjoyed our short stay, and would certainly look to book the Ibis Styles again should we be flying from Heathrow on any of our next travels.
Overnight stays start from just £53 for a double room, bed and breakfast. Find out more at www.ibis.com
