Aviator Hotel Hampshire
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Farnborough
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Lovely checkin with complimentary cocktails. Very stylish setting and great service in bar and restaurant. Suites are beautiful and luxurious. Normal rooms slightly on the small side but still very nice. Food was delicious, esp good bfast (second best ever in a hotel and I'm fussy). Had to take off 1 star becuase the room service was shocking - part of the order missing and the food was pretty ropey. Esp the risotto which was undercooked and tasted really awful.

The Aviator Hotel is stylishly designed from the outside, to the lobby, to the rooms. The Aviation theme is done in a classy subtle way (B&W photos, oval aircraft windows in elevator, etc).

The rooms were very large and well appointed for a business traveller. Comforable king bed and beautiful bathroom. WiFi was available and the room was very quiet.

We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant and both meals were very good. Mostly meat and poultry on the dinner menu and the breakfast was a well-stocked buffet.

I would definately stay here again.

A good choice of hotel in Farnborough against the competition. The style is smart and clean yet I also agree with other reviews that it is a bit dark [which is a bit odd] and the signage is not great. Either get rid of the signage and have people direct you and get better signage wis my advice.

Good bar staff that can mix what drink you like and pleasant service.

Great hotel and striking style! I stayed in the Sky Suite on the 4th floor, immaculate and great views!

Excellent food and stylish Sky Bar with signature cocktails, which are dangerously good!

Perfect for business and pleasure stay, would definitely recommend!

This hotel is beautifully designed and decorated with a nice restaurant, bar, and rooms. Three things I noticed:

- The rooms are well laid out for the business traveler, with plug outlets in multiple configurations and a very efficient coffee machine;
- The restaurant menu has a lovely selection of entrees prepared with locally sourced ingredients. At some places this comes across as a bit silly and precious; here, it is done very nicely;
- The aviator theme is tastefully integrated into the hotel without being overly obvious

An area for improvement:
- The service in the restaurant needs to be more attentive and responsive to customer requests. We had to ask for things like bread and water multiple times and each time the waiter said it was someone else's responsibility - would suggest that managers encourage staff to take greater ownership for customer satisfaction!

Hotel is ok looking from the outside but is beautiful on the inside, staircase is fab and bar and restuarant are good, if a little dark!! However, food in the restuarant was of average quality and portions tiny but breakfast was appalling, food cold and wasn't offered tea/coffee when we sat down, had to ask for it and only got it after we had eaten breakfast, and you only get a cup!! Feel as thou they want you out as soon as possible and as people sit where they want it is a little chaotic.
Overall an average stay at highly inflated prices.

Great hotel - from the first time you walk through the door and view the entry staircase through the high standard of decoration throughout. Great room (top floor suite) which had all you need for a really great stay (including a walk in wardrobe and molton brown toiletries - you can't go wrong!!). Nice bar and good value great tasting bar food. Great cocktail bar with some really good options at not too expensive prices. Restaurant was another good point with great choices.
The only thing this hotel could do with is a swimming pool and spa which would make it one of the best!
