Edinburgh to Heathrow

We are taking the train from Edinburgh to our hotel near Terminal 5 at Heathrow. We are not crazy about transferring to the underground with our luggage etc and then to our hotel. It looks like we get off the train at London’s King Cross station. We are thinking of getting Uber from there to our hotel. Does this seem like a reasonable plan? Is Uber generally available there?

And a second question, we are using Uber a few weeks earlier when we arrive at Heathrow to our London hotel. Is it easy to locate where the Uber pick-up is at terminal 5?

Thanks
Fred

I know you want to take the train, but flying would probably be a LOT easier. Edinburgh to London would be into T5, near your hotel.

Uber pick-up at terminal 5 is in Short Stay Car Park 5, Level 1, Row R. The driver meets you there on foot and leads you to the car.
