Exceptionally friendly. Can't do enough which made our stay very pleasant. Stayed in winter and I think would be even better in the summer due to direct outside access into garden for dogs. Lovely breakfast, great poached egg! Would recommend.

This is a real Gem. Easy to find, parking on site and convenient for a quick getaway to ferry or shuttle. Lovely room with access straight to enclosed garden for the dogs and very reasonably priced. Why only 4 stars then? I never give 5, that's why! Did I mention that they are lovely people?

Room was clean, good shower with plenty of hot water. The room was fully equipped, TV , kettle, hairdryer and alarm clock. Beds were super comfy...

Lovely service, they contacted me straight as I made the booking and waited for our arrival even if it was late at night. Their restaurant offers a range of vegetarian breakfast options. Lovely people, would highly recommend.

What a great find! My parents and I needed an overnight stay in Folkestone whilst visiting family nearby. On arrival we received a warm welcome from Sarah, our rooms were very clean and comfortable, the homemade biscuits are a nice touch. After a long journey, a quiet room with a comfortable bed was much appreciated. Breakfast was first class, a...

I stayed at the Rob Roy after arriving from the tunnel. I arrived fairly late, and Sarah graciously welcomed me and arranged an early breakfast for the next day.

A last minute decision to stay over at the Rob Roy Guest House due to ferry disruptions, this is a very pleasant place to stay. Very convenient for a short walk to the seafront / main town of Folkestone. A stone's throw from a Supermarket, decent pubs and with off-street parking, I stayed here a few times. Rooms are very...
