The new 129-key property, managed by Aimbridge Hospitality’s international division Interstate Hotels & Resorts, is located inside Canterbury’s famous city walls near the cathedral.

The latest addition to Hampton by Hilton’s growing portfolio of properties around the world, Hampton by Hilton Canterbury provides convenient access to the city’s key sights.

A historic location

The hotel lies in the centre of an extensive redevelopment project led by Slatters Development. It incorporates two listed buildings and has a glass panel in the reception area showcasing the remains of a Roman theatre.

Nicholas Northam, executive vice president, international, at Interstate Hotels & Resorts, said: “We’re proud to officially open the Hampton by Hilton Canterbury, bringing the renowned brand to one of the UK’s most historically significant cities and creating new accommodation options for visitors, while paying homage to Canterbury’s rich cultural past throughout the property.”

“We are so excited to be opening such an amazing hotel in the centre of Canterbury,” explained Scott Jakins, general manager of Hampton by Hilton Canterbury. “We have been inundated with support from all over Kent and will no doubt be the hotel of choice for visitors to Canterbury once we open.”

Zaw Htut and Michael Wood, of Slatters Development, added: “It’s fantastic to see the new Hampton by Hilton Canterbury open and ready to welcome guests.

“A lot of work has gone into developing the property in a sensitive way that really showcases the historical significance of the site. We are incredibly proud to have worked with Hilton and Interstate Hotels & Resorts to create such a unique accommodation offering in the heart of Canterbury.”
