    Great value, great location, really big room and comfy bed.

    Decor very dated, although I believe a major refurbishment is on the cards. Staff very young and not terribly professional, probably need a bit more training and direction (I.e. not their fault)

    Was alright

    Our room had the aircon outside the window, so made a terrible noise, gor very little sleep, too hot to have window open. Could not get in room in time. The view feom the room was awful, like a gypsy site

About

Overview

Best Western Abbots Barton Hotel has offered unique Kentish character to guests since 1927. Its Gothic style building dates back to the 1830s, and ensures all who visit return home with a few Canterbury tales of their own! Today, the hotel is ideal for those seeking the 'picturesque' and the 'personality' that Britain is famed for, with tasteful-yet-traditional refurbishment in recent years only adding to its appeal. Tranquil gardens mean there's as much peace and quiet to be found outside as there is within our 19th Century walls, and you'll find all the comforts and amenities of a first class modern hotel at every turn. The hotel has free onsite parking and is just five minutes' walk from the County Cricket Ground should you want to be bowled over by the tradition and intrigue of the 'Gentleman's Game'. Enjoy your stay.
