This hotel is really well designed, the room was very comfortable, the staff were lovely - particularly the bar staff, dinner in the brasserie was delicious. The only problem was we had high expectations based on the hotel website and reviews on tripadvisor and the hotel was let down by the little things, the attention to detail that make a good hotel really great.

The Aviator is the sort of place that, because of it's location, you would spend a lot of time in relaxing, we would have liked to have some afternoon to enjoy whilst reading the paper. I'm not talking full on high tea but a cake or biscuit would have been welcome. We had a bit of a problem at breakfast which in my opinion is where hotels should get things bang on. We waited so long we had to give up or we would have been late checking out and it was just the sort of thing that takes the shine off what otherwise was a lovely relaxing weekend.

We got a great deal for the weekend and we had lovely time but had we paid the full rate I think we would have been disappointed. If the Aviator wants to be a truly great hotel they just need to work on the little things that make all the difference.

If you are looking for a luxury stay with a real difference then you can't go wrong with the aviator.

It's defintely one of the most original hotels we have stayed in - not just the fact that you can see planes land and take off from your room but the interior of the hotel is fabulous with little airplane themed touches everywhere, and a real standout entrance.

We stayed in the standard room which was very comfortable and luxurious. Make sure you ask for the airport side of the hotel if you want to see the landing strip. We were looking for a very short break just to chill out so the free movies on demand was a nice touch.

We also dined in the restaurant which was fantastic. The restaurant and bar was completely packed and a great buzz.
Definitely recommend the taster menu for a treat.

In terms of location this is no country hotel with countryside scenery and nice walks from the hotel - it really is all about the hotel, the airport view and the food so if you are looking for some luxury with a real difference only 1 hour from London then this won't disappoint.

The exterior really doesn't match this hotel interior -- it looks very unappealing from outside, but inside is very modern and almost luxurious. The reception is in 2nd floor and floors are covered with wall-to-wall carpet so not the nicest thing if you're travelling with heavy luggage (as I was...). Check-in was really pleasant and quick -- same with check-out.

Standard room was REALLY big! And beautiful. It was decorated with aviation theme. Bed was big, not the most comfortable I've had but ok. Wireless Internet was complimentary for 24hrs. There were some tea & coffee & hot chocolate items available as complimentary, that was nice. No noice from anywhere, of course that may have been due to the fact that my room was in the far end of corridor...

Breakfast selection was a bit narrow, but still ok. I would have wished a bit more fresh fruits, but otherwise good. Also international breakfast elements, not only toast & beans :)

Unfortunately I had only a very quick stop here so wasn't able to utilize hotel facilities, but based on first impression, I would definitely come back to see more.

Room Tip: room at far end of corridor are quiet

For my fiancees birthday, we spent the night at the Aviator and partook in the Tasting Menu offer. Absolutely loved it - really cool room overlooking the airport and the dinner in the restaurant was absolutely delicious. All the staff were professional, friendly and polite - service was superb. What was a bonus was the complimentary films in the room, we could have happily stayed all weekend! Breakfast was great the next day, wide choice of foods from continental to a very good Full English.

Room Tip: Airside Rooms are fun as you can spot the private jets land and take off!
