About this property

  • Description

    The Slatters development at 7-10 St Margaret's Street is a mixed-use development to comprise a new 129 bed Hampton by Hilton hotel, together with a 5th floor stunning rooftop bar/restaurant with dedicated ground floor entrance and two ground floor commercial units. The view from the rooftop restaurant will provide unparalleled, stunning and unrestricted views towards the Canterbury Cathedral and wider surrounding countryside. The site incorporates the former Peter Newman shoe store, Ha-Ha Bar and 30 bedroom Slatters Hotel, which ceased trading approximately 20 years ago. With careful consideration of the historic nature of the site and listed elements, the development will be an inspired blend of old and new architecture. In designing the elevation and façade of the new scheme the developer has taken references from other historical buildings and landmarks in Canterbury, including the cathedral and St Margaret’s Church, with a sympathetic choice of materials. Immediately outside of the hotel and retail units, public realm improvements along St Margaret's Street are also being carried out as part of the development. This will see pedestrianisation of the street, tree planting and new granite sett & york stone paving to the road and footpaths.
