Stayed at the Rob Roy Guesthouse for the weekend, to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. Had a lovely stay, the rooms were really nice and clean. The service was great, had a fantastic breakfast. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

We’ve used The Rob Roy a few times, this last time when we returned to live in the UK from the Netherlands. It’s ideally located for using the channel tunnel. The rooms are very comfortable and Sarah is incredibly helpful and friendly. We use the garden room as we have 2 dogs. We had access directly from our room to the lovely garden, which is ideal for the dogs. Breakfast is lovely and you can also use the dining room on an evening. We had lovely fish and chips from a local takeaway. I was also able to use the fridge for my dogs medication. An excellent start to our journey back to living in England. Highly recommend.

Had an overnight stay at The Rob Roy before we went on the Eurotunnel and had a good stay. The room was comfortable, the hosts we very friendly and kept us well informed. The breakfast was good. The building is old but we found the room, shower/ toilet and dining room clean and tidy.
