The personal interest shown to us- great great - we've stayed before and, will book again (directly) and, recommned it to our friends. For me only one thing, no smoking enclosure. So, brrrr cold for a girl from South Africa!
We were warmly greeted and directed to our room, which was down an extremely steep slope. The room was clean,comfortable and modern although, very dimly lit.The sheets were a dull cream in colour, which tended to make them look grubby white. The bathroom was modern and generally clean apart from under the rim of the toilet. a nice touch was a cafetiere with ground coffee amongst the usual hot drink facilities. The restaurant was definitely gourmet with a wide selection of starters,mains & desserts accompanied by a good choice of wines.We enjoyed two fantastic evening meals. Breakfast was delicious:fresh fruit salad,cereals,yoghurts,toast and a full English. Staff were most accommodating & very friendly. The slope down to the rooms was hazardous. a ground frost made it quite icy in parts.WINTER Would be lethal! On the first two nights the food was outstanding although on our last night my steak was cold. I sent it back with minimal fuss. However, by the time it was returned to me, my partner had finished her meal. The steak was hot, but could no longer be described as "medium" and the accompanying asparagus & dauphinoise potatoes were dried out and I left most ot this meal. I am easily embarrassed & did not want to make a fuss, but did question why it was still on the bill. I was given £6.50 reduction, but still charged £13.50 for the main meal I did not eat- this spoilt our last night & I felt that I had been overcharged.
Such a helpful and friendly staff. Our rooms were perfect for our needs. We loved our time at the Roebuck!
The food was very nice and the staff were friendly. The room was nice and clean. We had room number 7 and mattress had seen better days to the point where i didn't have a good nights sleep at all and is sqeaky very loud every time i moved i woke my self up and my boyfriend, it was very dissapointing. When i inspected the mattress is was soo squished and old it i felt a bit ripped off for having to pay to sleep in it i would of been better off on the floor on a blow up one.
