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

We were the only two people in the restaurent on the night we stayed and the food was appauling and expensive. I managed the starter but left the main and my partners was no better. Bar was very busy with locals and the... More

Hotel is based at Sywell Aerodrome. Art Deco themed building and furnishings, which is really cool. Room was basic. Very clean and comfortable. Small flat screen, tea/coffee, free wi-fi. Restaurant was good. Good food choice. I thought the evening menu was expensive. Buffet breakfast at £7.50 was good value and very nice. Staff were friendly. I would come back here.

If you are into aviation and or art deco and are traveling to Northampton and want overnight accomodation with style this is a must, good bar, food and room. If you can fly in you can park the plane 20 yards from the back door.

Stayed here as had event nearby. Had room facing the main road, was a little noisy due to large farm vehicles moving hay etc around, but not that bad that it stopped us sleeping soundly. Rooms are in separate block from main hotel which we found preferable. Good evening menu, can eat in restaurant or bar area. Good quality food.... More

The inter-war ambience in rooms and public areas is the main attraction of this hotel, as is its position right on the airfield. Other pluses are the free WiFi, easy parking, and good size rooms which are clean with comfortable beds and generous tea/coffee trays. Being in an isolated location, I was not impressed by the limited food service times... More

We flew in to Sywell airfield on Friday 18 August. There is nothing better for a weary pilot and pax than a hotel within walking distance of the apron/runway. This hotel was a gem. Its art deco theme is a really lovely touch and reception was friendly and efficient. Our good sized room was adjacent to the car park and... More

Arriving at Sywell Aviator Hotel is like stepping back in time. A WWII airfield still serving general aviation air traffic. Land your aircraft and walk a short distance to the hotel. The hotel is 1930's 1940's Art Deco type. The rooms are very sufficient, located on two stories. Downside is there is no lift. So if you are limited in... More
