Went for a drink only last Sunday as we do like to watch the aircrafts coming in and out. The bar is lovely along with Paul the manager however the bar staff are miserable and do not smile - it is like they do not want to be there which is a shame for such a nice place. Drinks are...

If it's character and something a bit different you want then you won't be disappointed with this quirky hotel in an old airfield. The hotel is in an Art Deco style and the rooms and public areas all have a really nice feel about them. The shower and bathroom was decent and the room had a desk to sit at...

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Very pleasant overall, the room was large and tea and coffee was available. Only criticism would be not enough "biscuits". Very quiet location. The restaurant was extremely nice and the food was perfectly cooked and nice portion sizes.

Well the aviator hotel is a little gem. The rooms are clean and tidy although ours did have the smallest tv for a room of such good size. The bar and restaurant areas overlook the parking space for visiting aircraft which gives a very pleasant view on a sunny day with lots of activity. You do not have to be...

I took two grandchildren in there 20s to the Aviator for lunch. We were shown into a delightful quiet restaurant but were interested to note that there were places in the bar, in a conservatory and indeed in better weather outside. The choice on the menu was good and interesting and all meals were very nice. There was a slight...

We stayed here for an event on the airfield. It is definitely well worth the £69.00 with the English breakfast included. Clean with larger rooms than at premier inn. Lovely to have the art deco detailing and history around. We ate at a pub a short walk away as we had been on site all day and needed to go...

The Aviator its out of town but it was well worth it £69.00 and full English breakfast included we paid £15.00 for a taxi into Northampton, friends stayed at the Radisson paid £110 plus £6.00 parking and breakfast £14.00 each and a smaller room. But the best part was the hotel full of history and Art Deco decor and furniture...
