10 minute taxi or 15 minute bus ride into Canterbury city centre but would not want to walk it. The rooms are en-suite with a decent shower, plenty of wardrobe space, tv and tea coffeee making facilities. Bed quite comfortable but the rooms are very hot, could have done with a fan but had window open and that helped a... More

We stayed here for four nights and were not disappointed the service was very good, they even had a medical centre. Being only five minutes from Canterbury proper it was also very convenient. As parking is at a premium in Canterbury I would suggest catching a bus from the University (2 minutes walk).

I stayed with a group of friends. We had 4 double bedrooms in one of the flats. The rooms were fab, nice en suite and I think it's the newest accommodation on campus. My friends and I were having a reunion as we graduated from UKC 6 years ago. It was clean, towels and toiletries provided, along with tea coffee... More

Stayed here for a work trip to Canterbury. The lady on reception was very friendly and quickly looked how long it would take to get to our meeting the next day whilst checking us in. The room was clean with a mini washbag of toiletries provided and the shower was excellent - hot and powerful. The bed was comfy and... More

My friend booked the accommodation for our group of 9, and when she sent me the picture (of the outside), I have to say my heart sank a little. I'm quite fussy with where I lay my head down for a weekend break, but as we all wanted to stay together, I thought I'd suck it up. However, on arrival... More

Not cheap but high standard of accommodation. Clean. Quiet outside of term time. Parking on site. 5 minute taxi journey from centre. Good breakfast. Checkin/out times are annoyingly restrictive (1400-2200). Otherwise, couldn't fault it.

Whilst being the most expensive, the newest and probably the best looking accommodation at the University of Kent, Turing College isn't without its faults. For most of this academic year there have been problems with our boiler meaning that we were without hot water or working central heating. Though this has been solved on multiple occasions it's not good enough... More

Turing college is on a par with -if not better than- the likes of a premier inn or travelodge. Helpful staff who are very informative, clean and comfortable rooms with access to a modern communal kitchen, fantastic value for money and full English breakfast is included. Great budget accommodation. Only thing is reception is not 24 hours, but security are... More
