A solution for tonight - get inside it and connect the 2 x 1Kw elements in series to make a 500 w one which is probably nearer the actual output you need during the night and turn the thermostat up to max. You could re-jig the switchery to give a choice of 1 kw or 500w so you can preheat the room before you retire.
If it's cycling with the frequency you describe ISTM the heater is badly designed anyway. The thermostat is getting ackled directly by the heating element itself rather than the air temperature of the room. It would benefit from being divorced from the heater itself. To that extent a 14 quid plug in thermostat would give you less grief because of less cycling and even if it had a relay in it the absence of the resonant tin box must make it quieter.

Look in the CPC catalogue, part no PL02451. It's a Goldair fan heater with electronic control, when it gets colder the fan slowly speeds up and the element gets gradually hotter, then it slows down and cools as it gets near the set temp. We bought one for our camper because the clicks used to annoy us as well. This one works a treat, no clicks.
