Good value for money
Clean and comfy room, friendly receptionist. Would have been good if it said somewhere during booking that dinner is available, too.

Cheap and cheerful stay
Good - Room was huge, location walkable (and well signed from city centre). Breakfast included could be huge. Free parking Could be better - shared bathroom (which I knew when booking). Lack of sink in room or toilet.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Excellent for the price.
Overall very good, for the price, a bit hostel-like, no frills, but perfectly clean and comfortable. Rutherford is one of the original colleges at UKC, now over 50 years old, so a bit worn. Rooms are not en suite but you do get a sink in your room, towels and a tea tray. There is also a kitchenette on the corridor, with a microwave and fridge. On one day my room was not made up and when I reported it to reception they said they didn't know if the rooms were made up every day or not. Ok if not, but a. the receptionist should know and b. they should warn the guests. Receptionists were quite offhand anyway. Good things are the free parking, free wifi, excellent included breakfast, in quiet and peaceful surroundings. There is a shop on campus open until 10pm every night, a cinema and restaurant. There are no lifts and lots of steps in Rutherford so if you have trouble getting about this is probably not the place for you. For myself, I would stay there again.

Before I start the review, I actually ended up staying in Eliot College, Becket Court as they were in the process of refurbishing the accommodation in Rutherford College. However I was assigned a better room than I had paid for so I was happy enough. And my assigned breakfast location, the Dolce Vita cafe bar was also excellent, with very good cooked breakfasts and lots of nice extras like yoghurts. I was always happy starting my day's adventure there. I have traveled far and wide, often alone as I was on my adventure around Canterbury and the Kent coast. I have in the past stayed in backpackers accommodation much of the time but at 37 I now feel the need for a bit more comfort and privacy. The idea of opening up Uni's as B&Bs during the summer is genius. It provides the lone explorer with the ideal set up. Other excellent points of note was the outstanding wi-fi in the rooms and around the campus, the exceptional bus service from just outside the building more or less and the pretty much perfect pizzas in the K Bar. I had a really nice time and would recommend the University of Kent (and Kent as a whole..)
