> See all hotels in Kent

Book a hotel in Kent to see why it has, for so long, been referred to as 'the Garden of England.' A stay here is guaranteed to be a wonderful short break, whether you decide to relax on one of the Blue Flag beaches or whether it's the historic castles that hold your interest. Whatever pace of holiday you prefer, a stay in Kent will always be a fond memory. Best Western has seven hotels in Kent. They are well dispersed, giving you the choice of a wide range of different environments and the chance to enjoy all areas and aspects that this picturesque south-eastern county has to offer.

Town and city breaks in Kent

Despite there being a number of bewitching market towns and country settlements, it is often argued that no place better reflects the charm of the county than the historic city of Canterbury. Whilst Maidstone is the administrative county town, Canterbury boasts both a cathedral and a university. If you're looking for surroundings that boast historic charm and architecture, book our Kent hotel, Abbots Barton, located in over 2 acres of beautiful grounds nestled in the middle of the quiet city. The city is steeped in history and rural charm and is a world heritage site. It is timeless yet contemporary, with a wide spectrum of shopping destinations and a number of world-class restaurants. The small spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in west Kent is perfect for travellers who love olde-worlde pubs and unique, quaint shops. Visit nearby stately homes for the quintessential English experience. Enjoy a drive round the winding county roads stopping off for snacks and drinks in some of the other inviting settlements such as Folkestone, Seven Oaks, Bromley, Gravesend and Tonbridge.

Holidays in the Kent countryside

To really experience the full beauty of this breath-taking region, book a Best Western hotel in Kent countryside, the perfect starting point for a holiday. Blow away those city cobwebs and experience the stunning vistas on the Kent Downs, where nature is a joy to behold. Elsewhere, Romney Marsh is an unspoiled and dramatic landscape, perfect for walkers and wildlife watchers. Certainly don't miss the famous White Cliffs Of Dover, where the views go on for miles. Whether you just want to stop and admire the scenery over a coffee, or perhaps get involved in horse riding or cycling, the Kent countryside is a glorious place to have a short break.

Beach holidays in Kent

The Kent coastline boasts many delightful seaside town and beach resorts that are ideal for all the family. A relaxing stay in a Kent hotel in the small seaside town of Whitstable offers everything from freshly-caught oysters to seafront walks past pretty, multi-coloured beach huts and the chance to browse in little art galleries. Or if you are looking for a busier vibe, Margate offers traditional seaside attractions such as exciting funfairs, fish and chips and sandy beaches, ideal for a bucket-and-spade holiday with the children. Take a romp along the White Cliffs of Dover and take in the stunning views across to the continent out to sea, and the endless green landscape dotted with Exmoor ponies and rare butterflies on your other side. Margate is also perfect for exciting evening entertainment. So even if you just want to sit on a deckchair and stare out to sea, a hotel in Kent is the ideal base for your seaside stay.

Attractions in Kent

Booking a Kent hotel will give you access to all sorts of attractions, there really is something for everyone. Children will love meandering through the maze at the picturesque Leeds Castle, the 900-year-old residence of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife. Here you can watch exciting displays of the historic discipline of Falconry. Let the children's imaginations run riot as they run around the grounds of this romantic castle, pretending to be knights and princesses. Little drivers will love racing JCB diggers around Diggerland in Strood and train fans of all ages will enjoy a journey on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, from Hythe to Dungeness lighthouse. Capture the sea breeze on a Horizon Sea Safari at Ramsgate, where you can expect to see seals and other wildlife in their natural habitats. Second World War Spitfire displays will have kids rat-a-tatting round the Kent Battle of Britain Museum near Folkestone, or, in similar vein, you can learn how the Dunkirk evacuation was planned in the secret wartime tunnels at Dover Castle.
Book a hotel in Kent with Best western for a real chance to explore all the delights that the county has to offer. Whatever you wish to do, whichever hotel you decide to book, this county offers one of the best possible relaxing short UK break.
