What a truly enjoyable stay. A group from my company stayed for the Farnborough air show, so we had lots of time to evaluate and encounter the things that go wrong at hotels. The rooms were fabulous, especially the Sky Suites overlooking the runway. The entire hotel is very stylish and tastfully decorated with clear attention to even the smallest... More

Friendly staff, on arrival they said sorry to us as we had to queue to check in only 2 in front of us but we were given free drinks whilst we waited. Staff during our stay greeted us by our names, I've only had that on cruise ships before. Food and drinks were all superb and in our opinion this... More

Absolutely loved Aviator. I had suite 415 which had the best view possible for the whole of the Farnborough Airshow, watching the Typhoon and Arrows from a 55sq foot air on room was my idea of heaven. The food was exquisite, I had rabbit which had unbelievable flavour and the lamb was equally as world class. Staff treated us like... More

This hotel is tremendous!! Unique design to accompany a unique experience. I had dinner in the Sky Lounge which was just excellent, eating dinner whilst watching the activity around the airfield. The shower was great and the toiletries good. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We got the suite on offer but I would definitely recommend it as a quick getaway as the hotel is so quirky and fun. It's classy but not pretentious. The area of few borough is not really for tourists, a nice shopping area in tow and some decent restaurants but the hotel has a lovely vibe and great for a... More

It was a while ago we came here now, but as soon as we had entered the hotel it felt special. Really sleek and modern, helpful receptionist, and fabulous room! We chilled out with a bottle of champagne which I think was already there when we got there, watched a film, and ate in the yummy restaurant. Loved the location,... More

I have been the bar at the Aviator a number of time and whilst there is no doubt it is a classy looking hotel the bar prices are very steep. I stayed the night the other week for a wedding and found the room to be very comfortable but only one towel for two people was poor, no kettle in... More

Have stayed in the Aviator several times for business. Very good sized rooms and an excellent free WI Fi service. Good restaurant. Breakfast is very average - slow to replenish, no black or white pudding, waited 10 minutes for a fried egg after ordering and gave up. Nice bar but prices are outrageous - £9 for a Jameson!! Very pleasant... 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
