Comfort in Canterbury.

The Best Western Abbots Barton Hotel sits quietly in Canterbury, amongst 2 acres of beautiful, tranquil landscaped gardens. The hotel, as well as offering a delightful place to spend the day and night, is also the ideal base for visiting Canterbury city centre itself. The Cathedral, shops and tourist attractions are all within this wonderful citys walls just a 10 minute walk away. Built in the 1830's as a private house, the hotel has lost none of it's style and charm. If anything, the homely atmosphere has only improved with age!

The Best Western Abbots Barton Hotel provides a great indoors, but those seeking adventure or relaxation in the great outdoors will be equally impressed by our location. Coastal and country walks are close-by, you can enjoy both river and sea fishing, and try something a little different with clay pigeon shooting at the local shooting range!

** Please note that there will be some building work at the back of the hotel over the next 6 months but this will cause minimal disruption to guests stay **
