A handy, 1920s-fronted South London stay, that once served England's first major international airport

The Lowdown

Once serving Croydon Airport – the first international hub in the country – Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome is celebrating almost a hundred of years of hospitality. The airport was used by pioneering aviators like Charles Lindbergh and Amy Johnson, with Winston Churchill even taking flying lessons here.
The planes may be long gone, but today the hotel offers easy access to many attractions. These include superb shopping centres, world-renowned sporting venues, Gatwick Airport and a legendary concert hall. A quick 15 minutes’ drive away, East Croydon station can whizz you into central London or send you off to England’s south coast in a jiffy.
The hotel itself boasts a white, Art Deco pillared façade, which gives way to contemporary styled interiors. At the heart of proceedings on the ground floor, you’ll find a dark wood bar and high-ceilinged brasserie-style restaurant, complete with grand arched windows.
Guest rooms are spacious, cosy and welcoming with all the usual amenities. An added bonus is the special rate available for Hallmark guests at a renowned private health club just down the road, which has a heated indoor pool, steam room, sauna and gym.

This is a local hotel and we frequently use it for a quiet drink.
Always found the staff friendly and the facilities clean.
Decided to try a night at the hallmark, bedrooms were clean and staff helpful, found the room value for money.
The restaurant food was lovely and would definitely stay again

Afternoon Tea

Booked a groupon voucher for afternoon tea, was not expecting much.....how wrong was I......great presentation, lovely cakes and pastries, warm scones, clotted cream and Jam.....also fruit kebabs and warm runny chocolate dip (we asked for more)! Lovely venue and fantastic staff, Danilela was our waitress and she was funny, helpful and proffesional, with a great sense if pride in her job and customers. All staff were lively and obviously enjoy where they work. We will return. Thank you all.

Booked an Exec room on 2 for 1 night weekend deal direct with Hallmark. Check-in provided complimentary drinks voucher and 20% off bar/restaurant prices which was great. Bedroom air conditioning was welcome (not all rooms have this!), bed was huge & comfy, bathroom clean & good. Service and staff were excellent. Breakfast choice and quality was excellent. I'm very picky and I couldn't fault it.. !
