Situated right on the roundabout with plenty of parking the airman offers basic, no frills accommodation. We opted for room only and found the room clean and reasonable value. On the downside the decor was tired and the room excessively warm. A handy place to stay if you just want somewhere to sleep and no luxury

I would agree with another reviewer, it was 'cheap' and 'cheerful'. My impression was that they were trying to fill the hotel over the Bank Holiday weekend, but, that ongoing improvement work to the hotel was not finished; the condition of the ground floor annex where I stayed felt neglected and uncared for: there was evidence of decorating work, incomplete;...

We booked just for one night as were at a wedding nearby. All aspects of the booking process were efficient and friendly. I rang to confirm a couple of days before and the manager was really helpful with regards to checking in and finding local cabs. On reading some other reviews I had reservations; however, although it is not ultra...

We took my Mother in law her for Mothers Day lunch today and never, ever have we had such a truly awful meal! Please don't waste your money, it was dreadful. My starter which was poached salmon was raw and the carvers was so awful, people had complained about it quite loudly as we first arrived. The vegetables were all...

Last minute stopover for £45. Hotel is easy to find and right on a roundabout. The room was dated, in need of a bit of tlc alas it was comfortable and relatively clean. Wi-Fi is free and decent. TV was ridiculously small, in fact I've not seen one smaller. Hotel is very warm. I would stay here for 1 night...

Stayed for several nights during the week on a B and B basis. On checking in payment was taken straight away which I thought a little odd but realised later why. The room was very sub standard. None of the furniture matched and was extremely worn and some of it covered in paint slashes. Very cheap looking. The bathroom was...

Thank you for your review. The hotels policy is to take payment on arrival, as with most other independent hotels in the area. The management have taken notes of your points and we are currently in the process of replacing mattress, pillows and duvets.

This hotel is well situated for those that wish to explore Bedfordshire's aviation connections. From a businessman's perspective, the rooms are good value and clean with comfortable beds and WiFi throughout.

On arrival at the Airman we had to go to Bar to get someone to check us in as reception was unmanned .As we were only staying for one night to attend a function locally we were informed that the Hotel would be locked at 11pm and we were given a code to re-enter via side entrance as we would...

Booked this as a last minute accommodation choice as needed somewhere quickly and price friendly. The hotel itself is very tired and needs refurbishing, The room we had was a family room which was ok but the beds themselves were not that comfortable. What made up for a few things was the food, which was just lovely. The homemade pie...
