The second hotel will be a new 353 bed budget hotel. The proposed brand has not been confirmed.

Taking advantage of the locations excellent connections to Heathrow Airport and Terminal Five, the proposals are to demolish the existing 1960’s hotel and replace it with the two new high quality hotels.

Designed as a pair, the hotels will meet the GLA 20% renewable /carbon reduction targets with a combined CHP plant with biomass boilers and photovoltaic panels on the roof. The hotels have been orientated tominimise solar gain and be visually linked along a graceful curved frontage to help with way finding and orientation.

The hotels are set back from the Bath Road to maintain the leafy character of the approach to Longford Village and to provide a car park area that is secure and easily surveyed.
