Just spent the one night at the Airman as it was close to where we were needed to be. The staff are friendly enough and helpful. The decor is well passed its date along with the creaky stairs. The rooms are adequate with a double and a single in our room. Tea, Coffee and toiletrees are supplied and you can... More

The food is basic but of good quality, which I would prefer to a place where they overstretch their capacity. I have only eaten here up to about 18:00, and have always enjoyed the food. Sometimes on quiet days the same person will man the front desk and the bar which is not a great idea, but that is the... More

We work all over the country and this is the worst hotel we have ever had the misfortune to stay in. Our room had a broken bed, a tv that was just static, a shower that scolded you and then froze you to death. Our bathroom was full of black hair which was never clean away in the whole week....

Having stayed there a few times now I thought I should attempt an honest review of the place. Personally I like staying there, but I could see it would not be to every ones taste. My main reason for saying this is because it’s a difficult place to pin down; it’s not a pub in the true sense of the... More

We stayed at the Airman for a couple of nights but won’t be rushing back. Firstly the positives. The staff, warm and friendly and helpful. Now the rooms. I don’t know when the Airman was last refurbished, but I would guess from the wallpaper in the main restaurant it was probably the 1970’s. The carpet on the stairs and landings... More

I needed a room at short notice due to a business commitment that was going to overrun into the next day. Fortunately I found this hotel not too far away. Easy to find and get to by car, but not, I think, by public transport. Parking was free. Cost was £55 per night. I would rate the hotel itself at... More

Had to find a bed for the night at short notice and the website looked good and being ex RAF I thought that looks great. Ooops that will teach me. I usually check Trip Advisor first when booking a hotel but as I said earlier it was short notice and boy do I wish I had. Look all I will... More

I've had two parties at the airman in the marquee and couldn't fault anything. They made sure everything was alright for us. I also go with my friend about once a month for a nice dinner. I definitely would recommend this hotel. Lovely staff 👍🏽😊
