First thing that crossed your mind as you approach The Aviator is where am I? This hotel is lost in the midst of a small airport and industrial warehouses. The decor is wonderfully Art Deco. This was the base of the Free French during the Second World War and has amazing history. The rooms are dated. Almost purposely so. They...

For obvious Orwellian reasons, you never want to be checked into Room 101...But I was. You'd have thought they'd have done away with 101, like they do away with the thirteenth floor. Luckily my stay was not as bad as a rats cage strapped to my head, but it wasnt brilliant either. To be fair to the Aviator i did...

Room was very clean and all was in good working order. Windows weren't double glazed and my room (108) was right by the road so noisy around rush hour but quite otherwise. Breakfast had lots of choice and was of high quality. Staff were very friendly and great service -So, would happily stay again

The first contact to make a booking was by 'phone and this proved to be a very easy and enjoyable experience. Travelling up from Kent on a Friday evening is not the best of times to travel but we duly arrived...

This is great value for a hotel near the Airfield. Clean and tidy, good rooms, helpful staff and good food- and did I mention its near the airfield, so great if you are having a 50 hour service on your aircraft or a "Flying weekend" with a college? Good Value Good rooms Good food What can I say?

Arrived after 5 hour drive to a very cool welcome and a large price increase. The advertised and booked rate was £69 per night for two b&b. Reception said it was now £79 per night plus breakfast at £7.50 per person so £94 per night. Take it or leave it attitude, no apology just produced a generic letter showing that...
