Lovely welcome, we arrived late. Lovely comfortable room, free tea/coffee in room, television, free WiFi, only stayed one night passing through on way to France. Lovely breakfast before we left, warm and friendly atmosphere, would highly recommend, especially as its dog friendly (we had a dog with us)

The hosts are friendly, helpful and efficient. The room, although small, had everything you need and would expect from a four star hotel. There was a good choice for breakfast, which was freshly cooked with some thoughtful touches. The location is great for exploring the Town and very local sites like the amazing Folkestone Warren, and Battle of Britain Memorial... More

We stayed one night at The Rob Roy Guest House. The rooms were clean and Jim and Sara were very friendly. They gave us pamphlets for all of the local attractions and provided guidance on the local pubs. The breakfast was also good! There was plenty of food and it was cooked well.
