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'. Please note that the hotel currently has a new Leisure Facility under development.

Local Gem

We have family in Whitstable a tiny town with very limited hotel options so we usually end up staying in Canterbury nearby. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise and a good step above the average. It is set in fabulous grounds almost in the center of the city. I was unable to find much about the history but it feels like an old country home or perhaps an old school which has been sympathetically added to over the years. The staff were splendid and the rooms were both surprisingly roomy and modern. It does suffer from the traditional British plague of a fire door every 50 feet....but that's the fault of the fire code not the hotel. It has a warm old world feel with a real English Breakfast included. The bar is comfortable even tho there was a wedding going on while we stayed the rooms were quiet. With so many bland corporate hotels out there it was marvelous to find history and comfort at a reasonable price.

If you possibly can find time take the short drive to Goodenstones Estate and Park. It has one of the best gardens in the country just fabulous.

Good hotel

Lovely hotel on the outskirts of town. You can walk to town center. the room was larger than most. The bathroom was nice. Breakfast was included in my price and was good. Décor in lobby is beautiful and traditional. We have to commend Fern at the front desk for being so nice and helpful.

Try to get to a service at Canterbury Cathedral. If you hear the choir it is heavenly! and the cathedral itself is awesome.

Quiet and comfortable

This hotel is great - it's quiet and comfortable and worked well for us. It is on the edge of town so we took cabs to and from the downtown area - however, younger folks probably could have walked the distance. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Canterbury Cathedral and the Roman Museum were both fantastic. Also enjoyed the Canterbury Tales exhibit - it brought to life some of the key stores of Chaucer's work that I had painfully tried to read when in HS nearly 60 years ago!

Canterbury touring

The hotel is very charming -- feels like you go back in time. Good location and perfect when the reason for your visit is related to your desire to experience a medieval town.

Visit "The Canterbury Tales" attraction. Its dated and a bit cheesey but so much fun and gives a nice overview of the medieval story that is related to this town.
