    I came here to stay 2 nights for my graduation and I had a better room and services compared to when I lived at Rutherford College few years back. It was a nice & familiar environment and I enjoyed the quietness in my corridor.

    It is Beautiful located, the room clean and nice and the breakfast was generous. I would recommended it my friends.

    A better map and notice when you book where Rutherford college is located. I walked around for over 30 minutes to find it and the reception. Partlly my own fault, but it would be helpful with a notice when yoy book.

    The Breakfast was very Good.

    The location was not good. Had to ask the member of staff where the room was as could not find it, it was a rabbit warren.

    The grounds were really nice and the rooms were very clean and comfortable even if a little basic. The English breakfast was well equipped and I enjoyed mine and most importantly the sausages weren't made of oats.

    I used my Sat Nav to walk but the path it lead me on was closed and even when I met up with it, I ended up going in a rear entrance and not finding my way to main reception. Not so much an issue with the college but it would have been nice if it was a bit clearer or marked out somewhere online but I phoned the number and they tracked exactly where I was and guided me.

    The smell in the room next to toilet. Awful! Sleeping with wide open window helped a little

    The grounds are very scenic and pleasant to walk around and the University has excellent facilities, such as cafes, dining halls, a shop and a cinema. My room was excellent value for money and not having an en suite bathroom wasn't an issue as there was hardly anyone else around. The breakfasts and evening meals were very good and it also was very easy to get to Canterbury and to towns such as Whitstable and Herne Bay.

    Although the lady who booked me in and checked me out was friendly and helpful, some of the staff, especially the dining staff, were unhelpful and a little rude. They seem to be more used to dealing with students than with paying guests and I was a told off a couple of times for inadvertently doing the wrong thing, which isn't how I expected to be treated as a paying customer.

    Location was good - away from the main part of town but within walk-able distance. There is also a regular bus service. Food was good and there is a theatre on campus as well as a variety of shops and places to eat. The dining room where breakfast was served looked to serve dinners as well, but I never used it at that time. There are basic facilities for the rooms to make food - Microwave, Fridge and Kettle, just need to bring cutlery and plates.

    Breakfast could start earlier - would have made my mornings less rushed - breakfast starts at 7.45, I needed to leave at 8 in the morning. This resulted in a rushed breakfast, especially if there was a queue. The rooms are only for single occupants within this building - so unable to travel as part of a couple. Perhaps this facility is available in other buildings?

    Everything. The Receptionist even found a room for me, despite me booking the wrong weekend. The room is basic, but is fine for one or two nights. The breakfast is buffet style and really is an all you can eat type. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are really very nice and if you want to go for a stroll, that's fine. Go for a bike ride, is also fine with cycle paths in abundance.

    The Campus is at the top of a hill and it's a fair old climb to get back up that hill on your bike from Canterbury.

    Facilities were excellent for my needs as a student. Vastly exceeded expectations.

    Nothing substantial.

    Rooms were spartan but clean. Very good breakfast included. Tea and coffee available in the room. Quiet location, relatively close to the city centre (15-20 minutes walk). Buses available to city centre. Helpful and friendly staff.

    Toilet and shower facilities on corridor urgently need to be refurbished. The University campus has confusing signposts, making it difficult to find the college when first arriving. It appears no food is provided on the campus after 9pm.

    i got back 2300 hrs. the man on reception saw that i walked in a circle past him twice. he looked up and was either too lazy to help or could not be bothered. i was only there 1 night . this was the only thing to spoil a nice stay

    I've been a student and lived in halls, and this reminded me very much of those days. The room was basic, but very comfortable, and the breakfast in the morning was excellent. For this low price, you'll not find something better anywhere else in the city.

    Was a little noisy in the early evening, although the World Cup 3rd place game was on and people had gathered to watch it in a communal area. Otherwise fine.

    Quiet and peaceful. Excellent breakfast. Although it was shared bathroom, I never anyone else (max of 5 people in each wing) and a washbasin in the room.

    The bed was poor. Thin mattress, sagged. Would not stay here again unless this was improved.

    Basic accommodation and facilities but perfectly adequate fit for purpose and price. For those who do not need any frills highly recommendable :-)).

    Not a lot, just in some rooms during the night you can hear the noise from the refrigerated drinks machines in the corridors.
