Stayed here on 26th for one night, as doing flight simulator following morning.
Hotel has a 30's / 40's theme, so there is quite a lot of wood in the complex, but it is not a unmodernised hotel.
Rooms very large, comfortable and clean.
Hotel set next to airfield and it is fantastic to sit in the beer garden that backs on to it and watch the planes while having a drink. All staff are very polite and helpful, which is unusual nowadays. To the rear of the hotel, there is a small wartime memorabilia museum, which is fascinating and you can loose yourself for a hour or so in it.
Bar prices where quite good and food was fantastic. We had both an evening meal and breakfast, which on a weekend the breakfast is complimentary.
As general clients are well mannered, it makes an overall comfortable experience.
Would definitely recommend and will personally be staying again.
