Peaceful and relaxing hotelPosted Jan 29, 2015
Pros: The history in the architecture of the building and the trees and wildlife :)
Location: It is a short, easy and safe walk to the historic city centre with roman wall and iconic cathedral and much more!
I loved every second that I was in this hotel. It had a lovely, relaxing atmosphere, it is clean and comfortable and is only a short walk from the city centre. I can't wait to find an excuse to stay here again! :)

Small rooms and dirtyPosted Dec 31, 2014
Rooms are small and not very clean. Found a box of pills and a razor on the floor.

Post Xmas stayPosted Dec 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very enjoyable stay,staff were exceptional. We found it difficult to read in our room as the lighting was rather dim, but we enjoyed the comfortable lounge.

ReunionPosted Dec 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
A weekend family reunion in Canterbury . We picked the wrong time of year as the place was awash with partygoers! Well presented hotel in a great position near the Cathedral shops etc and easy to find with ample parking .

Good HotelPosted Dec 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved the hotel but were a bit disappointed by the main part of our food which, although being very enjoyable to eat, we felt lacked imagination with a lack of accompanying vegetables

My stay at Abbots BartonPosted Dec 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very helpful, friendly and professional staff, prepared to go the extra mile to deal with requests! Hannah was an absolute star!! Ideal location, a 10 minute walk into town - even for two octogenarians!!! Very comfortable sitting areas with no hassle from staff to but drinks etc. Again, very welcome for pensioners! Good food, plenty of parking spaces and all areas were clean and sparkling.

Excellent service and minor gripesPosted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: Character, location
Cons: The bed sheets, if one was being picky, were quite rough.
Location: The hotel's within easy walking distance of the city centre.
There were a couple of minor things wrong with our room. One of them was that the showers were cold in the morning. I had hardly mentioned it on checking out when the lady behind the desk apologised in a way that felt genuine and heartfelt and offered us a partial refund. I think other visitors would be extremely unlucky to have a cold shower, and therefore I can recommend this hotel warmly. We didn't have breakfast, and so all I can say is that the building is charming, the staff friendly and the room comfortable.

Comfortable and convenientPosted Nov 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great people, professional and helpful yet still friendly. As others have said the rooms are a little small and they are a little tight on the coffee and shampoo etc. However, the condition is good if you like this style, and I do. The location is especially good for the city centre.

Good hotel but let down by attrotious foodPosted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: The rooms were good and clean; hot water was not a problem.
Cons: See above.
Location: £3 taxi ride to Canterbury.
I wanted a bottle of water, and the bar referred me to reception. Reception then took me to the bar, where although the receptionist had taken my credit card when I arrived I was refused my request to charge it to me room account. This for a small bottle of water! This is the only hotel I have known which had television but no list of stations - not even at reception! The restaurant was busy with a conference and clearly we would not be able to eat there. I ordered room servce. Of the five main dishes on the list, the one I chose (burgers) was sold out. I ordered plaice and chips. After nearly an hour I complained that it had not arrived, and was told that the chips were stll be cooked. When the meal arrived the fish was unlike any plaice I have ever eaten and was lukewarm; the chips were monsters and greasy. Whatever you do, do not eat in the hotel.
