I have a long transit in London and was wondering if there are any hotels that offer day use near the airport. I arrive on QF9 at 0530 hrs and do not leave on another flight till later that day.

Just out of curiosity - what is the destination that you could not pick betteer connection? We have longish layover in Singapore, so long that it is enough to go to excursion . We are happy to go out, so may be it is option for you also?

You'll find that most hotels at Heathrow offer day use rates, although you may not be able to book such rates online.

However, Sofitel at T5 offers day rates online, usually available from 8am until 5 or 6pm (free connection from T3 where Qantas arrive to T5 via Heathrow Express). Or if you're on a budget then fellow Accor Group hotel Ibis is also available (105 and 111 buses are free from Heathrow Central Bus Station, or Hoppa buses are available from right outside the terminal).

Hi Stewardnurse,

If I were you I'd check-in for my next flight, leave any bulky hand luggage at left luggage (for a reasonable fee). Pop over to terminal 4 using the free Heathrow Connect trains, where I would freshen up and grab a quick breakfast (assuming you had the dreaded cereal option on QF9) at Yotel Cabin Hotel, where rooms are charged by the hour.

Then I would hop on the Piccadilly line to Leicester Square for the National Gallery or Russell Square for the British Museum and enjoy the collection for FREE! I'd then hop back on the Piccadilly line to Piccadilly Circus where I would take afternoon tea at Fortnums (book in advance via their website) or at the Royal Academy Restaurant, Burlington House (no booking required). I'd give myself plenty of time to get back to LHR on the tube or catch the Bakerloo line from Piccadilly Circus to Paddington for the Heathrow Express to LHR. Buy cheaper tickets on line or better yet give yourself a bit more time and catch the Heathrow Connect at roughly half the price.

Try Yotel.com, you can book a cabin at Heathrow Terminal 4 for a 4 hour minimum with free wifi, it's approximately 32 GBP, I haven't personally used it but you can check out the website.
