Where to stay around LHR?

Hello,
I will be starting in october for a new outfit operating out of LHR T2.
Can any of you suggest where to stay? Will work on a 5/4 roster with many layovers initially.

Thanks in advance.

Probably the most expensive area in the UK to rent or buy.

Maidenhead and Windsor are close and mid range price wise (but still expensive). Lower price is Slough (John Betchamin wrote encouraging Luftwaffe bombs a few years back) and higher Marlow and Henley (both on the Thames and very very nice). High Wycombe is on M40 so quick to M25 and LHR and reasonable price wise.

First question is what times are you going to be going to/from LHR - and then how the hell are you going to get there.

Car is hellish & very slow & unreliable in peak periods (0700 - 1900 for the main roads). Lot to be said for being on the Paddington- LHR line using the Heathrow Connect service rather than the obscene Heathrow Express. Also the Piccadily tube line runs through some (slightly) cheaper areas or use a SouthWest train to Hounslow/Staines and get a bus or taxi
