Reviewed 12 November 2013

Fantastic service great food and made to feel very welcome , would defiantly stay here again , the staff could not do enough for you , the bar was very reasonable too
......
Space for parking your car and easy to get to ...... Only thing is there wasn't much around the pub / hotel but everything you need was inside

Arrived late Friday afternoon to a friendly welcome and shown to Room 1, a twin room. The carpet had stains all over it, the wallpaper was marked/dirty. Window frames were dirty and handles were broken on two drawers. Inside one drawer was information on walks for Maidstone West dating from 3/2007!!! Very out of date and information now incorrect. No other information available about local area/hotel itself and its history as well as local places to visit and how to get there. Bed linen, although immaculately clean, had holes in it and one of the twin beds creaked/squeaked the minute you sat on it or lay anything on it. We stayed for 2 nights and I did not sleep a wink, nor did my husband due to the noise from the mattress. These are simple things to put right and very inexpensive to do, hotel needs to think about things from the customer's perspective. My husband was born and lived in Harrietsham for 30 years so very disappointed with the experience. Food was plentiful and hot and hosts very friendly, they just need to sort out the rooms. The Roebuck is the only surviving pub in the area and the only hotel, they could have a little gold mine if they put the effort in.

Five members of my family recently stayed at the Roebuck Inn, when visiting for a 90th family party. The staff where very warm and friendly. We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the afternoon. The rooms where a very good size, with a large bathroom. Breakfast was really good, large in size and very good value overall. We would all stay again if visiting the area.

My husband and I stayed here last night after booking this Inn through expedia. On arrival we were warmly greeted. and shown to our room. This was warm and inviting and so spotlessly clean.
After an excellent dinner in the restaurant we had a wonderful nights sleep, very comfy bed, lovely crisp white bed linen and divinely soft pillows. The room was of course en suite and what a marvellous surprise, a very large totally enclosed shower, not the usual cramped area or over the bath. Luxurious shower before a magnificent large and extremely well cooked and presented breakfast. Our hosts were so welcoming and made our stay one to remember. I would recommend the Roebuck to anyone. Thank you so much for a very happy experience.

I stayed here with a friend when visiting Harrietsham for a friend's wedding. First impressions of the pub weren't brilliant, purely because the Roebuck Inn is set in such a beautiful village and seems a little out of place. However, on finding my way to my room I was pleasantly surprised with the size and cleanliness of the twin room. Our TV didn't work but we weren't there to watch TV so it wasn't a problem.

We had a very peaceful nights sleep although I was woken up early hearing the person in the room next door as their bathroom backed onto where we slept. The walls are very thin so I could hear everything!

Breakfast was tasty and the dining room quite quaint. The staff were really friendly. Overall a pleasant stay and good value.
