    Superb

    Very clean, comfortable with a luxury feel. Rooms good with excellent amenities. Good view of the airfield from the restaurant.

    The breakfast was quite poor due to the bad service. Extra to the room rate and not worth it.

    Very good

    Friendly staff, facilities very good, and rooms excellent.

    Although the stay was very good we found it very expensive.

    The foyer and sky bar is lovely

    Reception staff were not friendly and considering the hotel didn't seem busy I was disappointed that I was given a small first floor room with a road view. Puzzled as to why the entrance is so far from the car park when there is another entrance much closer that is closed. I live locally to this hotel and frequent the sky bar often which I will continue to do and I definitely recommend a visit.. .. to the bar only!

    Fabulous

    Room excellent very comfortable, generally all necessary facilities were available ie access to the internet was very uesful, the staff were helpful and friendly nothing too was much trouble.

    I thought that the breakfast charge was excessive and not necessary taking into concideration the cost of the room.

    Efficient hotel with good aircon and soundproofing. Stayed on a Saturday night and although busy no disturbance from the wedding. Excellent selection of cinema current free films.

    Airside standard rooms do not have iPhone docking and only shower in bathroom.

    Sadly like so many designer boutique hotels the Aviatir would have been amazing to stay in when it first opened. The new management have not maintained the 'glamour' and this hotel has a slight 'previously enjoyed' feel to it. This now makes it seem very over priced. The warning sign was the worn leather on the reception desk. We paid £185 for a normal size double room that felt like a long way from the entrance, the remote control receiver on the tv had fallen off and was hanging down on its wire, the walls of the room were scuffed from so many other guests, the overhead shower squirts water in many different directions including at you when you turn it on, the bathroom lights creak as they warm up, the room a/c rumbles, the free toiletries smell very cheap and nasty, the trickle of wi-fi although free was useless, and it's still UHT milk on the tea tray? not very 5 sta. We won't be back

    The hotel was amazing, the rooms were beautiful with great facilities and lovely staff. The food in the restuarant was lovely.

    That breakfast wasn't included in the price considering the cost of the hotel room was so pricy.

    Superb

    From the minute you walk in to the entrance area one can't fail to be impressed by the interior of this hotel. There are excellent facilities with really well finished off details throughout, with no expense spared in building and furnishings. All staff are very friendly and efficient. The Aviator is worth every penny of the room charge; I have paid a lot more for hotels that are not in the same league as this place. A relaxing experience that I would thouroughly recommend to anyone.

    For some reason the bar wasn't open at around 14.30 on a Saturday, we fancied a drink so ended up walking up the road to a local pub. We had the full english delivered by room service; although the main part of the breakfast was nice, I would go downstairs next time as for £17 + tray charge I was a little disapointed at the lack of toast, butter, juice, ketchup and condments etc. Had to call room service to bring these items seperatly. It was odd though as on they original tray they had provided a selection of conserves with nothing to put them on?! Aside from that, it's a great place and I'd definitely go again.

    "Quirky" decor - a bit too dark and brooding for me.

    Fabulous

    You feel like you are in a luxury hotel. We were able to eat dinner late (after 9 pm).

    I requested a room with 2 beds. This was displayed as an option on Booked.net, but at the desk I was told the room at that rate had only one bed. The staff told me the bed was a King size, but it wasn't - much smaller than a King. To upgrade to a room with 2 beds would have been $60 more.

    The Hotel itself was a great design and impressive, studio room was clean and roomy

    Attitude of the staff, waiting a long time for two coffees ( which had been forgotten and no other customers on the terrace, the fact the terrace does not open until 12.30, not enough towels in the room... like the HOTEL but staff need training properly...
