While a “themed” hotel can evoke visions of tackiness, Aviator is just the opposite; the plane-centric hotel is chic and rather understated. Perhaps theme isn’t really even the right word. The entire hotel is like one loving homage to aviation. The gentle arc of the building itself seems to allude to the sleek curves of a plane. Well-appointed and stocked with Molton Brown products, Aviator provided a welcome respite for my husband and me from city life. We took a nice hike up Crooksbury Hill nearby, which received a nod in a Sherlock Holmes story. The only thing which seemed slightly out of keeping with the high level of service and standards throughout the hotel was that the coffee with breakfast was dispense-it-yourself and it kept running out, but I suppose any reason to get me off my seat will only do me good in the long-run!
