Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

As a family of four we booked two rooms including breakfast. Rooms were lovely clean and tidy. Breakfast was great self service buffet but could order from the menu too. Great location to get to Canterbury just 10 minutes walk. Staff all very helpful. Forgot some jewellery after checking out and staff found the items and posted them on. Great service and very impressed.

We have just returned from a holiday staying at this hotel, and cannot speak too highly of it. The welcome was warm and the staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The evening meal was absolutely delicious; the best duck we've ever been served,
and breakfast was plentiful and varied - and the hotel itself is elegant and set in lawns , a real feeling of out-of-town, but walkable into Canterbury, we found, in 7 minutes - and anyway with frequent bus services to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Thank you for your review.

We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your trip to Canterbury and had an enjoyable stay.

The restaurant menu has two types, Al la Carte and a new set menu of which we feel as adequate choices, there is also a grill menu. There is also an extensive bar menu for lighter bites.

We look forward to seeing you again, should you return to Canterbury in the future.

We have just returned from 2 nights' stay in the Abbots Barton Hotel. The room was pleasantly spacious with all amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. The restaurant food was beautifully presented and delicious and the staff courteous, friendly and helpful. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Canterbury. It deserves more that 3 stars!
