My friend and I have stayed at the Roebuck a few times and it just gets better and better. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The food is good value and excellent quality. The bar and lounge areas are cosy and comfortable. There is a very pleasant patio and garden area. The bedroom was clean, the bed... More

I recently stayed at the Roebuck Hotel for a night after visiting Hever Castle. What a pleasant surprise!! This hotel was nestled in a quiet wooded area, but not too far from attractions and things to do. The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly in both the hotel area, as... More

Hotel is in a very convenient location, in the heart of The Ashdown Forest and exactly what you expect from a hotel of it's calibre. Check in was efficient and personal. Didn't expect room to be ready but appreciated the early check in. The cleanliness of lobby and area was perfectly fresh and immaculate. The staff were efficient nothing was... More

Can't fault the service we recieve here, time and time again. That's why it's our first choice for all our staff when they are at Head Office on business. Always a warm 'welcome back' reception, clean rooms, quiet but with good main route access. The food here has continued to get better and better. Our female staff always feel safe... More

Last night the service from the waiting staff was, as usual, excellent, However, when we wished to order a coffee at around 9.45 I was told rather crustily that coffee was not available, 9.45 for goodness sake, and its a hotel, The...

I stayed in this hotel while on a business trip to the area in April 2014. The accommodation was comfortable and quiet giving a good nights sleep. The food in the restaurant was of good quality both for the evening meal and for breakfast. Staff were friendly and courteous.

We had our Wedding breakfast and evening reception at the Roebuck on 7th June. We loved this hotel as the price was within our budget which is important. The gardens are beautiful and luckily the sun was shining despite bad weather reports. The staff were amazing from when we first put our deposit down to leaving the day after the... More

My wife and i used this hotel for the entire day of our wedding. The scenery was beautiful, Nick and the team couldn't help enough, the food was great and the evening party was a great success. The rooms, though a little dated were adequate, and the breakfast menu was very good. So overall we felt we got very good... More

I have stayed here many times on business and every time I have enjoyed my stay. I often stay at a hotel and think I shall rebook when in that area only to be disappointed on my second visit. I can honestly say this has never been my experience at the Roebuck. I often speak to other guests who feel... More

Didn't stay in the hotel, just stopped for lunch. Good menu (upmarket pub grub, I guess) in a lovely setting. Ate on the terrace as the weather was great but the bar and restaurant areas looked good too. Food good, service fine.
