The BEST WESTERN Abbots Barton Hotel is a luxury hotel in Canterbury set within lawned gardens and only a ten minute walk from Canterbury city centre. It dates back to 1830 when it was originally built as a private home, in true Victorian Gothic Style, becoming a hotel in 1927 and since expanding to its present size. The hotel is owned and operated by Castlewood Hotels, a small family run hotel group based in the South East of England.
The hotel has 53 well appointed guest rooms, some with views of the Cathedral, consisting of standard, executive and deluxe room types offering all the mod cons expected by today’s discerning traveller. This is one of the reasons why it’s classed as a luxury hotel in Canterbury.
The Fountain Restaurant serves a seasonal menu of modern British fayre using locally and ethically sourced ingredients where possible, complimented by a comprehensive wine list and a range of after dinner liqueurs. The Westfield Bar, situated in the original house is well stocked with a wide selection of wines, beers and spirits.
The Cathedral Suite offers luxurious air conditioned accommodation for up to 150 people for theatre style meetings, whilst smaller conferences can be accommodated in the Marlowe or Beckett rooms. The Cathedral Suite is also ideal for dinner parties of up to 120, whilst larger functions can be accommodated in a marquee on the hotel’s lawn. There are also facilities for boardroom style meetings or interviews for up to 14 delegates with free wifi throughout hosted by The Cloud.
The BEST WESTERN Abbots Barton Hotel is not just a luxury hotel in Canterbury, but also a popular wedding venue which is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships.
