Stayed here with my 19 year old daughter for one night. Chose a twin room online and was pleased to find we had been given this. It was a very nice, comfortable and spacious room with the largest cupboard space we've ever had in a hotel! Bathroom was great except for the hairs in the plughole, and the hot water... More

The Abbots Barton is a lovely, clean and well kept hotel. It will be even better when it has a spa/pool. We have now stayed with this hotel twice and had breakfast each time, this is outstanding as well. The staff are so friendly and make your pets feel welcome as well. Nothing is to much trouble. If there was... More

Very nice hotel, a beautiful old building is landmark alone, very close to the centre streets of Canterbury only a 10 minute walk, lots of pictures and furniture makes the hotel suitably furnished, adds to the atmosphere. Rooms are large and comfortable and don't have any funky old smell, experienced in other old hotels. Definitely one of the best places... More

Although we only stayed overnight, the staff were extremely welcoming and the room very pleasant. Evening meal and Breakfast were most enjoyable and served by efficient and friendly staff. Some building work at rear of hotel but did not disturb us.

I stayed here with my wife on a Monday and Tuesday night. We are retired. The hotel was well appointed and in a good setting within ten minutes walk of the city centre. The full English breakfasts were very well prepared and we found the staff excellent. Would be very happy to return at some stage.
