A couple of us went for a drink & witnessed horrible behaviour towards a group that included Down's syndrome children. The owner basically told them they weren't welcome & the place wasn't social services. When challenged the guy said he was the owner! I can assure you neither me or my friends will set foot in this place ever again

After recent events would never go here again. Discrimination against those with disabilities is just not acceptable in this day and age. Horrible owner who is extremely rude. Plenty of nicer places near by who welcome everyone regardless of how they may look or act. Please avoid this place at all costs.

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...
