I stayed here for 5 nights on business travel in March 2014 and wanted to be close to the event I was attending. I recommended to the hotel to many clients attending the event. On arrival on Sunday afternoon I was greeted by a very helpful gentleman at concierge. I was on crutches at the time and concierge were great.... More

We stayed on a Saturday night and we're really impressed. Beautiful decor throughout, amazing cocktails from a friendly bar man in a funky lounge bar, and the most incredible steak in the restaurant! Not cheap, but we got a good deal from secret escapes, and it was worth every penny. It's now our 'treat' destination and a chance to get... More

We held a small birthday party here for 18 in the Cody room on the ground level. It was a 50th birthday and so quite a significant event.

We were at the Aviator Hotel for the Farnbouough Airshow this year. We booked onto the daytime hospitality (booze and food) with views of the airfield. On arrival we queued for drinks but the Champagne kept running out. It was coming out 1 bottle at-a-time with a growing line of people who were all intent on a bit of fizz.... More

We have stayed at the Aviator a few times now and have just got home from spending two nights there. I love the design of the hotel, all the rooms are big and very comfortable and the staff can't do enough to accommodate you. A friend was having her birthday party there and we had a fantastic time, taking over... More

The hotel is stunning when you first arrive and definitely has the wow factor. However we assumed the sky lounge, where afternoon tea is served, would have a good view of the airport landing strip as on the website they advertise a stunning panoramic view if the neighbouring airstrip; this is not the case and you can see very little....

Have been wanting to stay at this hotel for absolutely ages! It has intrigued me for time! I finally got the chance and I wasnt disappointed. the Main Entrance area was a little confusing as reception is on the first floor - once we had figured this out we were up and running.

Really nice room. Clean and very modern looking. You could even say that it has a luxurious feel. At breakfast time the breakfast room was full and we were asked to wait at the lobby and we would be called in. That did the same to other guests. After we waited for 45 minutes we realised that in the mean... More

This is the 3rd time I have stayed here (near my in-laws). While the beds are comfortable and the restaurant generally friendly, at every turn the hotel falls short of "5-star". I realize that technically the star rating system is a list of amenities (ie 24 hour room service) but generally you expect an approach to go that extra mile... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Used exclusively for tailored events and celebrations, the Sky Lounge overlooks awesome views of the airport and combines with the atrium to create a venue that promises to leave a lasting impression. ... more   less
