Arrived after 5 hour drive to a very cool welcome and a large price increase. The advertised and booked rate was £69 per night for two b&b. Reception said it was now £79 per night plus breakfast at £7.50 per person so £94 per night. Take it or leave it attitude, no apology just produced a generic letter showing that...

We stayed one night at The Aviator for a birthday celebration with friends and were pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel is after reading some of the reviews and looking at the photos. The hotel has lots of art deco character and overlooks the airfield and hangers. It is well kept, with the public areas in one building, and...

This is so different! It's like stepping back in time. Lovely clean and tidy room - very comfortable bed. The bar is great - expect Poirot to pop in at any minute. There is also a coffee shop upstairs where you can watch the planes take off. Love it!

Late afternoon... travelling up the motorway... nowhere to stay! Googled hotels in the immediate vicinity of where we needed to be the following day. The Aviator looked interesting. Phoned up and friendly reception staff made the booking easy. The heat is off. We have somewhere to stay tonight (28-09-16). Eventually found the place and what a surprise... all done throughout...

The hotel is very interesting and the Art Deco aeronautical theme is good fun. The rooms feel slightly dated but are comfortable and spacious. If you are visiting the Northampton area it is a good option. The breakfast was reasonable and we ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was pretty good and not too pricey. The portions...

The Aviator Hotel is quite an interesting place to visit, but I am not so sure about staying after two sleepness nights. The problem that the hotel has is that, even though it is deep in the country, it is next door to a company that seems to spend the whole of each night breaking up pallets. The noise was...
