Solid all round stay earlier in the year. Friendly manner and clean rooms. Didnt have the breakfast but heard good reviews from our friends. Fairly easy to get to and the staff are helpful with directions to nearby attractions.

Stayed at the Rob Roy and it was welcoming as ever. The hosts Sarah and Jim were lovely. B&B is clean, crisp and airy. The food is fit for a king; breakfast wonderful. Sarah couldn't do enough for me.

We stumbled across the Rob Roy using Trip Advisor when we were looking for accomodation to book prior to us visiting the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill. Initially, we were intending to stay in Canterbury but the potential cost put a stop to that, so we looked in the opposite direction towards Folkestone and fortunately for us -... More

Very nice one-night stop-over travelling along the South coast. Our en-suite room was nicely decorated, clean and cosy and although it was at the front of the house it was quiet. Sarah was welcoming and helpful. Would recommend it.
