Jet Aviation recommended Croyden Park Hotel but after staying there I would rather book into Stalag 13 next time, if you look at tripadvisor.com and check the surrounding area and reviews there are all sorts of different types of accommodation. Also stayed at Kings Arms and liked it as well.
I would also recommend the King's Arms in Westerham but it was absolutely dead when I stayed there. The room had the squeakiest floorboards I've ever known, so much so that I felt guilty about walking on them, out of concern for the poor person in the room below. There's not much else happening in Westerham.
The Croydon Park is reasonable but lacks character. If you do stay, try the dinner buffet - if you fully partake of the starter you'll find it difficult to find room for the main course.
I've also used the Jury's Inn in Croydon town centre - OK if you don't mind a highly average breakfast on a tray.
I understood that the problem was being addressed.
I received a circular from the airport management asking how they should specify the standards that pilots requre from a quality hotel ON the airport.
I suggest that fellow aviators highlight their needs on this forum, and a member of staff who I know reads PP will add these comments to the spec.
True. RizonJet (who are rather close to the airport management and are building the big hanger next to Air Partner/Goldair) are rumored to be looking at building a hotel similar to TAGs "The Aviator" at FAB. Biggin's will be called "The Rizon Shine".
The airport has been fighting the local planning authority for years. A fact of life in the UK, if you want to build anything you have to have the 'permission' of the local council. The fact that the leading voice in local planning was anti airport did not help.
The latest hotel application stands a good chance of being approved. Then it is only a matter of time to get it built.
