Sadly like so many designer boutique hotels the Aviator would have been amazing to stay in when it first opened. The new management don't seem to have fully maintained the 'glamour' and this hotel has a slight 'previously enjoyed' feel to it making it seem very over priced. The first warning sign was the worn leather on the reception desk. We then paid £185 for a normal size double room that instead of feeling excitingly remote along a chic dimly lit darkly decor'd corridor from the amazing spaceship like central atrium, felt simply like a long way from the entrance. The room was just disappointing: The remote control receiver on the tv had fallen off and was hanging down on its wire, the walls of the room were scuffed from so many other guests, the overhead shower squirts water in many different directions including at you when you try turning it on, the bathroom lights creak as they warm up, the room a/c rumbles, the free toiletries smell very cheap and nasty, the trickle of wi-fi although free was useless, and it's still UHT milk on the tea tray? not very 5 star. We won't be back

- Aviator was created by TAG Group as a hotel for elite travellers moving between London and the world's leading destinations. Located near London in Farnborough, Hampshire, Aviator opened in 2008 as one of the most striking design hotels in recent times. Innately stylish, Aviator binds the timeless glamour of aviation with seductive interiors and ultimate comfort. The bedroom interiors are contemporary yet rich and comfortable with walnut paneling, leather accented furniture and bathrooms with black glass walls, granite vanity tops and chrome finishing. Sky Suites amplify the indulgent personality of the hotel with walk in wardrobes, generous bath tubs, Missoni blankets and space to lounge surrounded by dark wood Venetian blinds. Guests can discreetly access the fitness studio from their rooms using a guest only stairwell at the north end of the building. The lobby and atrium of the hotel present the Deli, Brasserie and Sky Bar which overlooks the TAG owned private airport. Within the Brasserie sit two of the hotel's private dining rooms, exemplifying the intimacy and allure of the dining experience. The variety of fresh and classical dishes are accompanied by carefully selected boutique wines from producers around the world. Located on the first floor is Sky Bar, a cocktail bar designed with intention. Secluded black leather Rocket chairs and relaxing lounge areas create the ultimate place to sip our signature cocktails. The design of event spaces at Aviator are well considered. The private entrance to the events wing and dedicated relaxing lounge areas provide direct access to the versatile meeting rooms.
