We stayed for 3 nights, bed and breakfast. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the city centre. It is set in spacious grounds and well back from the (busy) New Dover Road. There is plenty of parking space.
We stayed in an attractive suite, room 103, in the old part of the building. Although facing towards the road, we were not aware of traffic noise and we slept well. The decor, both in the room and in the public rooms, was attractive and well above the standards that we have encountered in other Best Westerns. There was a modern heating/air contioning unit in the bedroom. As the weather was hot, the central heating was naturally not on which meant that we were unable to dry towels. An independent electric towel heater would have been helpful.
The staff were courteous and helpful at all times.
The self-service breakfast was plentiful and with a good range of hot and cold foods. We ate one night in the restaurant. The standard was acceptable and of a similar standard to that in hotels of this type.
We fully enjoyed our stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Abbots Barton. less
