Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome

Cross our elegant colonnaded threshold and you’re walking in some very famous footsteps. A striking example of neoclassical architecture, the hotel opened in 1928 to serve passengers flying in and out of Croydon Aerodrome, then London’s main airport. Amy Johnson embarked on her record-breaking flight to Australia from here, Charles Lindbergh arrived in his Spirit of St Louis single-engine plane – he was greeted by a crowd of 100,000 having just flown non-stop from New York to Paris – and Winston Churchill trained as a pilot on the same grass airstrip. Stay with us and you’re not just checking into a fine historic hotel; you’re checking into an aviation landmark.

Of course the Hallmark London Croydon Aerodrome has adapted to changing times and the rise of new, supersized airports like Heathrow. Now, as part of Croydon Vision 2020, an ambitious development plan for the commercial, shopping and entertainment centre south of the capital, it offers first-rate business and leisure accommodation just fifteen minutes from the heart of London, and close to the M25 and Gatwick Airport.

For starters, we have 110 excellent rooms and suites sporting stylish contemporary design, all with warm bold colours, richly patterned carpets and 21st century essentials like WiFi, flatscreen TV and 24-hour room service. Then there’s the boutique hotel’s chic brasserie with its deep palette, atmospheric lighting and beautiful period windows. Popular with locals as well as guests, it serves modern British and European classics, punctuated with specials from around the world including spicy Moroccan slow-cooked lamb and Goan prawn curry.

Need to work off the calories, or just keep a fitness regime on track while you’re away from home? We’ve negotiated a guest rate with a superb health club with heated indoor pool top-notch gym and exercise classes, just five minutes down the road.

We have five fully-equipped event rooms, with capacities ranging from 20 to 170. Excellent proximity to railway station, airports and motorways make this is the perfect meeting point for business in the 21st century.

Please just show your Hallmark Hotel key card at the Nuffield Health Club – a few hundred metres along the road – and you’ll have access to the superb swimming pool, gymnasium sauna, steam-room and exercise classes.

Of course, while you won’t see guests in leather flying jackets and goggles – unless we’re hosting a particularly niche fancy dress celebration, that is – somethings haven’t changed since the pioneering days of Croydon Aerodrome: our boutique hotel, set in glorious landscaped gardens, remains one of the area’s favourite wedding venues. Over nine decades, thousands of couples have placed their big day in our capable, trustworthy hands, using our dedicated and hugely experienced team of wedding experts and superb range of stylish banqueting suites. We’re also a well-established venue for private celebrations, including landmark birthdays, anniversaries or christenings, and, with our superb transport links, for business conferences, meetings and training days.

So the glory days of the UK’s first major international airport maybe long gone, but its boutique hotel, a unique legacy of the golden age of travel, is still flying high, offering a stylish welcome and splendid night’s sleep.
