We chose the Aviator as our Hotel for us to stay for my sons wedding at Rivervale Barn. In total we had 8 to 10 Rooms/Suites booked, which are absolutely stunning, very comfortable, clean and with very good amenities. We stayed in Room 418 overlooking Farnborough Airport and the Runway !!! Due to myself having it have an emergency major... More

I brought my partner here as a birthday surprise - taking advantage of the DBB offer and booking a Sky Suite overlooking the airfield. Good points first; the hotel is absolutely beautiful, the reception staff are very friendly and the rooms are incredible. The quality of the decor is very high. We could have lived in our suite!

We usually like the bar at the Aviator. Unusual cocktails, great people watching, relaxing sofas. But I really do get incensed when they "short change" me. No not in a monitory way but with the drinks. Previously I have had my favourite Mojito or Cosmopolitan which although nice, were very weak. This week I chose a Shiraz Malbec, another favourite...

We stayed here for one night in August - having got a cheaper deal as we paid in advance. We were really impressed with the decor and and the quality of the room.

We booked very last minute via the secret escapes website. Found it to be a really great hotel, the rooms are spacious and well appointed, bathrooms are lovely too, although a bath would have made it all the more lovely. The staff were generally courteous and helpful. We chose to eat in the brasserie where I would have hoped that... More

After the wow factor in entering the hotel sadly it was mostly down hill from there! Room: great, clean and spacious, a novelty to see an airstrip. Hotel; Cosy and intimate surroundings however men's toilets dirty. Skybar; crockery, cutlery and tables not as clean as you would expect, food poor quality and quantity. Breakfast appalling! Buffett breakfast doesn't work well.... 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

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
