I had arranged a surprise stay at the Aviator as my boyfriend had a triple car racing day at Longcross. Monica at Concierge made sure that everything I had requested was fulfilled - and more! She was brilliant and made our stay! From our arrival with pre-arranged cocktails in the room, to dinner with champagne to a late checkout, she made sure that everything was perfect and kept checking in on us to make sure we wanted for nothing!
We stayed in Air side which has great views of the airfield. They are spacious and very comfortable but unfortunately no fridge or minibar. However, free wifi and movies in the room are a plus. The Skybar is enjoyable for a nightcap or starter cocktail or the terrace to soak up the views of the airfield beyond, where we enjoyed the selection of bar food and drinks. We noticed a group had ordered afternoon tea with cakes and scones which also looked divine. Even though the hotel had a wedding in the Sky Lounge and the rooms were fully booked it did not feel overcrowded and busy. We had booked the 241 deal which includes one night free, breakfast on both nights and 3 course dinner - which was fantastic, lots of choice for a set menu. This deal is a bargain and well worth every penny.
The only small thing I'd say needs work on is the room service. Salt, pepper and condiments were not brought up with room service breakfast and when requested took 20mins to arrive by which time our breakfast had gone cold. The same thing happened the next morning even though we had previously requested them but this time it was quickly rectified. This is new hotel and they have done very well as all other boxes are ticked so we can forgive the slight mishap. It is well deserving of all its stars! We will be returning!!
