Welcome to the Rob Roy Guest House Folkestone

Good News - we're open!

From July 4th 2020 the Rob Roy Guest House has been open for business again.

We're following the UK Government advice and guidance on operations, to make sure you remain safe and well during your visit.

IMPORTANT - We are unable to accept bookings from patrons intending to travel from

  • Tier-3 areas in England
  • Level 4 areas of Scotland
  • all of Wales and Northern Ireland for the duration of current 'firebreak/circuit break' lockdown.

This will mean running at a reduced capacity for now, in order to comply with social distancing requirements,

but it also means that every room will have exclusive access to its own shower and toilet.

For now, breakfasts will be available by pre-order the night before. See our Meals menu for a downloadable menu and ordering form.

Stay safe and we'll look forward to greeting you again soon.
