Accommodation in a student hall of residence
I used this accommodation to visit The Open golf at Royal St. George's, Sandwich and by the time I was able to book there was very limited accommodation available in the area. Becket Court is a student hall of residence on the campus of the University of Kent in Canterbury that offers bed and breakfast accommodation during the summer vacation. The accommodation is fairly basic but perfectly adequate for a 6 night stay with an en-suite shower room and very good breakfast and very good value for the price.
