We booked in here for one night, during graduation it was a struggle to find a hotel. Location was spot on for the family & the room was comfortable. Breakfast was disappointing as for the price of our stay over £ 200 for the night, I would of expected waiter/waitress service, it was nothing special, a self service buffet. After... More

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate his bday. The hotel is located about 10 mins walk away from the centre of Canterbury so very convenient as we could leave the car in the carpark. The room was fabulous. The breakfast is plentiful and staff very attentive. Highly recommend.

Beautiful location!! The hotel was very easy to find, and when we arrived, we got a free upgrade! Going through the reception and hallways, we were in awe for the decor! The room was also very lovely, clean and was decorated in style. It took us a while to find out, how to work the airco, but once we did,... More

Booked the hotel through Secret Escapes to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday and weren't disappointed. The hotel was easy to find on the out skirts of the main city. We were greeted by friendly reception staff who had upgraded us to the bridal suite and we were made to feel very welcome. The room was on the first floor and... More

Very friendly & comfortable with generally excellent dining. Some things not working properly (e.g. shower and toilet seat, the former reported but no improvement or feedback) and some surprising items running out (bread in evening, cheese at breakfast). Wifi free but annoyingly had to provide registration details and then log in again each time my iPad was switched on.

What a most fantastic hotel and the most amazing staff, we had our wedding at this venue a day and must admitted it exceeded our expectations, the whole setup was totally professional and nothing was too much for the staff. Thanks Abbotts Barton for helping our dreams come to life.... and a very special thanks to Magdalena and Aura.
