An attractive art deco hotel. Room was quite plain but very comfortable, clean and good value. The restaurant and bar area is very elegant in an old kind of way and the staff were efficient and friendly. Good food and not expensive.

I booked a family meal at this restaurant. There were two staff on and only two other people there throughout the hour we stayed. It was appalling. Not acknowledged or 'greeted' on arrival, saw ourselves to a table after also switching the lights on ourselves! No one brought us menus,or asked if we were ready to order. I had to... More

I had a Monday to Thursday business trip that on the whole was pretty good. The room was spacious and clean and bed comfortable. The wifi times out a bit but was not too bad. Patchy reception on 3 network. The staff were on the whole very polite and well trained. Few dodgy excuses with unavailable food . Breakfast was... More

I stayed 3 nights at The Aviator on business. It was my first time at the hotel which is a little different in style but enjoyable because of it. While the room itself did the job and I had no issues, the staff I found to be hit and miss, sometimes forgetting orders for food/drink etc. The place itself could... More

A business stay of 1 day as I could not bear to stay for the 2nd day I had booked. The 'highlights' can best be summarised as: staff who could not care less, various 'random guests' accessing the accommodation block at all hours of the day and night, food which was beyond dire, a 'welcome' booklet in the room which...

Having just returned from a delightful lunch at The Aviator Hotel (my second visit here in 2 weeks), I wanted to write to say how friendly the staff are and what good honest delicious food they serve with incredibly generous sized portions. It is a lovely place to visit as a family or a couple and is situated right alongside... More

(Apart from the uncomfortable beds), I had a bar meal with friends in the evening, the bill for which I was later informed by telephone that I hadn't been charged for. I asked the caller to hold onto the account as I was returning for a meal in the next few days. When I arrived and asked to look at... More

Stayed here one night. So what was good? The room, spacious, clean and contained all we wanted incl WiFi. The price, very reasonable, which incl a full English breakfast on the Sunday morning. Decor, as per the title, very aviation minded. Parking, free and convenient. Bad? Apart from a first class breakfast, the food was overpriced and substandard. Service was... More

The Aviator Hotel is on the airfield at Sywell so very convenient for visiting pilots and friends. The orginal terminal building is the bar, restaurant and reception whilst the actual rooms are in a more modern basic block. However, much effort has been made to to recreate some of the Art Deco feel, both in the corridors with wonderfully difficult... More
