A few weeks ago I started ringing around hotels in the Canterbury area to see if I could find one which could accommodate my needs which are many and varied, due to some health issues. I was getting nowhere fast and then I rang the Abbots Barton where my call was answered by Jennifer, one of the Reception staff. She... More

We stayed in Abbots Barton recently, on an overnight shopping trip to Canterbury. First of all, the positives . . The hotel is in a lovely old building, full of charm, set in its own grounds along the Old Dover Road. Big old mature trees, and plenty of grass lawns give a lovely 'country-style feeling', even though the location is... More

We came to Canterbury for the cricket and this hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the cricket ground and about the same distance to the walled city. We had a suite which was fine for one night, especially as the stay was paid for with loyalty points. Hotel is being upgraded, but this did not inconvenience us as we... More

I am pleased the location was a perfect choice for both Cricket and the city, plus it is situated in a quiet area with a lovely garden to relax in. My team and I hope to see you again.

We had a horrible 1 night stay in this hotel... • The rooms were dated and had an awful smell. •There was nowhere to park, we searched for 15 minutes and ended up leaving the car in the middle of the building site that is the outside of the hotel. •We waited at reception for 10 minutes while 3 members...

We went to a wedding here. The chairs were covered in a fabric with bows at the back. Four of these chairs collapsed due to old age. One guest was badly injured although first aid was promptly offered by the young staff. I believe this hotel is now a First Weston

Thank you for your review, It is nice to hear you enjoyed the wedding and indeed it was a lovely day. We work with a company that dress the function rooms chairs which do make a vast impact on the room, it was very pretty. Unfortunately, a couple of chairs lost their legs during the evening, they are checked every... More

I had to spend a night in Canterbury on personal business and found this hotel only 200 yards from where I needed to be. On arrival I was told that I was being upgraded to a superior room - and it was! Huge, very comfortable bed, well furnished, jacizzu-style bath tub, windows (which opened properly) overlooking the garden and terrace.... More

My room was spotless and comfortable, will all you can expect from a 3-star hotel in it. The bathroom was impeccable. I would also like to compliment the staff who were all extremely pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended.
