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.

The Rob Roy had good reviews so we booked for one night which happened to be the night of Storm Angus!

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... More

We stayed over night just to get away from the rat race and were very warmly welcomed by Sarah. Room was comfortable and clean and conveniently placed. Breakfast was lovely, the place has a real homey feel to it.

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...
