I'm arriving at Heathrow in January on a BA flight and flying in First Class and I have about 7 hours to kill before check in at CBD London hotel. I have 2 questions: 1) Am I able to access the BA First Class Lounge (Concorde Room I think it is called)? 2) How does collecting luggage work - i.e., do I need to get luggage and then go back to the Lounge? Any insights would be appreciated?

there is an arrivals lounge in T5 - you have to collect luggage clear immigration etc and follow signs once out in main terminal - it has loads of showers and offers food - but is dry! no access airside to the concord room - for departing only

There is a BA Arrivals lounge, which has a small separate Concorde Room breakfast area. No Concorde Room access unless connecting to another flight from T5.

Why not pre register your hotel for an early arrival

The signage for T5 Arrivals lounge is non existent. We spent half hour walking around trying to find it until a nice BA worker pointed us in the right direction. The lounge was well worth a visit.
