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

Just dropped my daughter at this university. The experience was extremely great. Things were well organised to welcome the students and we did not face any problems at all. The allocated room to my daughter is nice & with a beautiful view. In fact most of the sceneries around the Uni are amazing. Environment and weather are excellent and I... More

I have stayed at Rutherford college a few times. Car parking is free, but it can be hard to find a space. You get a standard student room, with shared toilet (use one of the other colleges for ensuite). Lovely breakfast. A nice walk down the hill to Canterbury. Car parking in Canterbury is terrible, so walk or take the... More

Located in the Turing College the rooms were tidy and comfortably furnished - everything seemed to be quite new. It wasn't cosy but functional and on the same hallway there was also a large communal kitchen one could have used. The college is about 30 minutes walk from the centre but buses do run though the way back was a... More

We stayed at the brand new Turing College. Excellent room with TV, fast WiFi, nice bathroom and bag of toiletries. Good evening meals at the Gulbenkian theatre on site. Breakfast in one of the college dining rooms plentiful but not the best we've had. Easy 30 minute walk down into Canterbury to see the town and cathedral - and a... More

The accommodation and dining at Kent is by no means classy but what it lacks in that area it makes up for in convenience. Being so near to the conference facilities was undoubtedly a big draw as the campus is situated at some distance from the centre of town. Unfortunately that meant limited options for eating out without walking for... More

Stayed one night at the Beverley Farm House and very pleased I did. Got a very good deal, which included breakfast. Quite a simple double room with a shared shower room and kitchen between four rooms. Good location as well with a bus stop almost right outside of the door. If you need a simple and cost effective place to... More
