I took my bags and waited while Brian returned the car to the rental place by the train station and walked back to the bus station. We were soon on the 2.00 pm bus as planned, and arrived at Heathrow by 3.30 pm. It was just a hop, step and jump to the free bus to our hotel.....the .....Arora International Heathrow Hotel ......not to be confused with the Arora Hotel next to the Sofitel Hotel at Terminal 5!
Do Your Homework When Booking a Hotel
You need to add the cost of the bus per person to your hotel price. We decided it was better to go for a more expensive option and chose a hotel with the totally FREE bus right from the door to Terminal One where we were leaving from.
It all went very smoothly. It was definitely worth checking where the hotel was in relation to the terminal we wanted, as Heathrow is very spread out and even designated transport can take time.
We were soon winging our way to Morocco!
