Advantages One of the most luxurious hotels in the area. Great for the business customer and the wealthy.
Disadvantages Not for your average Joe (unless he has a big bank balance) Not really suitable for children.
The Aviator hotel, a 169 roomed luxury hotel in a little town called Farnborough. Situated on the main Farnborough Road (A325), it's placed in the best spot they could have chosen. Well, first a little information on the town and location as this will explain why they have spent £40m and built a great big five star hotel in this neighbourhood.
The Aviator hotel was built in 2008, opening just in time for the 2008 air show (every two year there is a major week long air tattoo where the likes of the red arrows etc appear in our skies). And being on the perimeter of the airport is how the Aviator will prove to be so popular. It also happens to be owned by TAG aviation who own the airport!
As mentioned there are 169 rooms in this five star hotel. Mainly aimed at business clientele and extremely rich visitors that may have flown in on their private jets (oh how the other half live!), this hotel is absolutely the crème de la crème of residences. The entire hotel is immaculate, with big conference rooms on the ground floor, three eateries including the skybar which overlooks the airport runway. The other two are the brasserie, where the menu changes daily, and the deli, which serves lighter, more Mediterranean-style food.
The Aviator has rooms and suites. Both are decorated to the same standard with dark wood used and rich looking wallpapers. I found the whole look of the hotel quite masculine in the fact that there are no curtains, a lot of wooden venetian blinds used. A bit of a luxury bachelor pad really. Although there isn't a lot of bright colour and soft textures used everywhere, it still has an amazing feeling of being homely, even using quite dark or plain colours and lots of wood in the décor. The rooms have a bog sumptuous double bed plus all the things you would expect: big writing desk, comfy seats, coffee table, big flat screentelevision, plus the usual hair dryer etc.
So onto the rooms...
