Transfer from Heathrow to London Hotel

I would be grateful for recommendations about car transfer providers from Heathrow to London hotels.
I have read that Dot2Dot my soon cease trading and JustAirports, a car transfer service that seemed OK, has recently attracted negative comments.
I am arriving in the evening from Australia via HongKong so I'm quite keen to find a reliable car transfer service.
Thanks

You could try Ray Skinner , he's very reliable. Lately for just the 2 of us, I prefer taking the HEX and a taxi.

Sorry should have provided the link.

www.london-transfers.com

Another poster here always recommends Swiss Cottage Cars.

We used JustAirports two weeks ago for transfers from Heathrow to our hotel and back. No problems whatsoever - the drivers were on time and got us quickly to our destination with no issues.

I have booked Dot2Dot for our daughter who will also be arriving from Australia in 3 weeks. I emailed visitbritian.com.au and received a very curt reply that they know nothing about the company folding. I then emailed Dot2Dot directly and they confirmed that the company has changed hands. This is a quote from that email.
"When our company was operated by National Express, our limit on the shuttles was no more than 4 stops. But as we are no longer part of National Express, our service is changing slightly. It could be 5 stops. Our shuttles have 10 seats."

They have been very polite and answer emails quickly, usually within minutes. Maybe you could email them yourself and check it out. I ended up booking through visitbritian.com.au and paid $43AUD to get our daughter into her Central London hotel.

I shall report back when she, hopefully, arrives safely. You don't say when you are going so I hope this might be of some help.

"JustAirports , . . . . . . . has recently attracted negative comments"

For pity's sake. Perspective here. 2 or 3 bad comments vs. oh - maybe 150 good ones? Just Airports is one of the best car services for LJR/London transfers. Ray Skinner is very good too, though he does charge more than Justairports. No company is perfect - including the tube or trains in from LHR. There can be the odd glitch no matter how you decide to do it. justairports is both cheap and reliable.

I personally wouldn't take a shuttle that had multiple drop-offs because that could easily add 30 to 40 minutes to the journey.

We always use http://www.simplyairports.co.uk/ to get us to & from the airport, never had any problems with them. The free 45 minute wait has been of benefit more than once!

Not sure where you saw the negative comments about justairports.com, but we used them last week and were quite pleased, as we were when we used them last summer
