Thank you Sarah helping us with overnight parking and for the use of your lovely garden room, we had all the facilities we could want and slept well. Breakfast was excellent and your advice on departure time accurate for our train. I am only sorry you were busy in the kitchen when it was time to leave and that we... More

Wonderful B&B/Guest House convenient to Folkestone and the Channel Tunnel. The rooms are small but equipped with as many amenities as the proprietor Sarah can cram in. The beds were comfortable, the wifi effective, the room clean and the breakfast excellent and cooked to order. The free parking was a bit of a dance to get everyone's cars in, but... More

Very welcoming, good room, comfortable with a good breakfast. Organising the booking was easy and the owners were quick to answer emails. There is parking at the front and on the road. Access from the M20 is easy. We would stay again!

We (and our dog - collie), spent a lovely night at the Rob Roy B&B. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. A dog bowl and treat were provided on arrival and as we were a little late to go out for food they brought us some take-out menus and allowed us to eat our Thai food... More

Thanks Jenny for the kind review. If we are full we do move cars around to accommodate the early departures. As you say we have plenty of free parking along the road if need be. Take care and hope to see you next year. regards Sarah and Jim More

I was in the area for a social event and to have a look around for a couple of days. This was a great base. The owners are very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the atmosphere felt very relaxed. My mum and I stayed in a twin room with the shared bathroom - everything about the room was well thought... More

Lovely welcoming guest house that allows dogs. Lovely room and breakfast, peaceful and relaxed. Stayed in ground Floor room 1 so could let our dog out into garden for its toilets, lovely homemade cake was offered at reception, it was delicious! Would definitely recommend.

Thanks for the lovely review. Glad you enjoyed the breadpudding, I do this know and again, good way to use up any left over crusts. I also make the shortbread biscuits in the rooms much nicer than the processed ones.....I have been told. Hope that we see you all again, regards Sarah and Jim. More

My friend and I stayed at the twin room for a night, and we loved this place pretty much. Very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast and their lovely dog. Sarah also shared me the story of their guest house. I love the history part of it.

Thank you for your kind words. We do like to make everyone feel at home. As you say we are about 10-15 walk from the Town Centre but it does mean you can park your car for free and then stroll down to the town or harbour without having to keep an eye on the time with parking meters. We... More

We stayed here for just one night, as we had a Channel Tunnel crossing the next morning. Couldn't have asked for anything better! Sarah was a most gracious and accommodating host. She takes care with every guest, checking on timings (if taking ferry or trains), food allergies and any general needs. We had a travel cot provided for our toddler... More

Normally i dont sleep well in a strange bed... But I slept so soundly, I overslept. So, for room 1 at least, a good mattress, a more than adequate breakfast, and a welcoming hostess. I also had a back door to the garden to eat my fish and chips in :-) Down side? If you want to work the wifi... More

Thank you for taking the time to do a review with all the positive comment. The area of Folkestone has always had a WIFI issue and we do try to help this with boosters around the house. Being an old building with thick walls we do what we can with what we have. regards Sarah and Jim More
