My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, bed and breakfast. It is easy to find, set well back off a main road so there is little or no road noise. It is an impressive building and pleasant interior, with friendly reception and restaurant staff. There is a small car park with space for around 30 cars....

Stayed overnight at the Abbots Barton on our way to the Channel Tunnel. The room was very comfortable, dinner first rate (they must have a very good chef), even if the menu was rather restricted, and breakfast a delight. What made it extra special, however, was the friendly and helpful staff, almost all from the EU. A good advert for...

Parking was plentiful, able to cope with large wedding parties (which were there both nights of our stay), and the staff we very friendly, polite, and helpful. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. The bed was huge, although the mattress was actually...

Had a couple of days sight seeing and wanted a central hotel. This Best Western hotel is ideal - 10 min stroll into town and it has free parking. Although it is on a main road, it is set back and there was no noise issues at all during our stay. Our room decor was a little bit tired, but...

This is a lovely hotel just 10minutes walk from the City of Canterbury. The staff are really friendly and efficient. The room was very comfortable, clean and neat as you'd expect.

I've never stayed in a best western before and always thought they were a bit tacky but I'm pleased to say I was very impressed with my stay here.

Very satisfactory. Clean,tidy,accomodating.Just what you would expect from a three star rated establishment. No frills but exceedingly good value and worth a visit. Short walk to town centre so quiet and most restful. no hesitation to recommend.
