As a regular Heathrow user I have often been ‘hijacked’ into paying £3 on the Hotel Hoppa bus to get out of Heathrow onwards to ‘civilisation’ at an overnight hotel on Bath Road. I have watched in dismay as families of 4 are shocked into paying £12 (or £24 if returning to Heathrow for their next flight) to travel the one mile or so to their hotel.
But good news is at hand. I have discovered that any ‘Red Bus’ from the Heathrow Central Bus Station will take passengers onto Bath Road for no charge and the same is true when picking up Heathrow Central buses coming back into the airport from the Bath Road bus stops.
There are a number of hotels only minutes away from the first two bus stops on Bath Road and some with rooms below £50 (Google Search ‘Heathrow Hotels’) and pick one of the 10 or so that are close to the bus stops on Bath Road.
The bad news is, having saved £6 I need £4.50 or more to buy a beer in the hotel but there is a nice old fashioned pub on Bath Road as well if you don’t mind a short walk for a more realistically priced beer.
