Rooms are clean. Bring your own soaps, shampoos, wash cloths, and mouthwashes.
For the casual, young, and able bodied traveler, the Roebuck will serve you with mediocrity for a short term stay.
Internet WiFi access is hit or miss, so the working business traveler should plan accordingly if data uploads/downloads are a requirement.
Lobby/bar/common seating areas have restricted hours; so, if you're an early riser, plan to remain precisely on your bed until 10 AM. Or, depart the hotel early via the fire door (not the lobby door) and head toward downtown via the river path for a wonderful breakfast/coffee at the Italian cafe adjacent to the church. The cafe opens early.
For the visually/physically challenged traveler, after hours access via the fire door may be difficult so be young and sure footed at the Roebuck.
If dressing for a formal event like a wedding or a business meeting, the rooms and bathrooms will be difficult and even worse for folks who require garment hangers, dressing areas, mirrors, and power outlets. The room amenities are better suited to the traveler with a backpack and flip flops.
The breakfast rules require each traveler to order a cooked breakfast the day before. There is no self service breakfast bar, so enjoy a cup of tea in your room as you either sit on your bed or stand up in your room before 10 AM.
I would recommend that the hotel provide overnight visitors with a lobby area with increased access.
The meals were delicious as were the pints; I would have spent more money on pints if the bar hours were extended in the evening.
The Lord Nelson pub within walking distance is a jewel of a place, so plan a visit there.
Understand that after hours at the Roebuck means you are on your own for entry/departure/checkout purposes. If you need an extra towel or an extra tea bag, make sure you have such requirements in hand during the posted operating hours. There's no front desk to call at midnight. If you depart early, then figure out your check out process the day before or wing it day of.
So, the Roebuck is a wee bit non-standard. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and this inn will likely need to change some policies and room layouts to be more hospitable in the hospitality industry.

Love this place, stayed a few times now as a business user and each time the food is amazing. Staff have always been wonderful and welcoming with no problems with any request asked. Will love to stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for double bed.

Just the strangest place to stay. Really weird rules. We were locked out of the dining area for breakfast, even though the sign says it opens at 8:30 am, until 10:00, because we didn't make a reservation for breakfast. We were staying there!

Not really a "Pub" stay - more like a little hotel with no amenities. The actual pub closed early every evening, so we had to return through the side entrance to our rooms, and there was no nightcap pint. The breakfast routine was frankly not worth the effort, you were expected to place your breakfast order (foodstuffs and a specific time) the evening before, which is a trick sometimes when they're closed before you get in. And even when you manage to catch them, who knows what I might want for breakfast the next day? Bizarre. It seemed like the friendly enough folks that we saw working in the pub were being told to do things that they didn't even understand (like the breakfast) and were essentially powerless to try to make our group feel comfortable and accommodated. The lunch we had one day was tasty enough, and the ale well presented, so if you can get by there after breakfast (order ahead!) and before they close in the evening, a bite to eat and a pint are not a wasted stop. An overnight stay is not recommended. Oh, yeah - the guest wifi never really worked, either. Odd.

Stayed here a few times now, always warm and welcoming atmosphere and the staff are always very welcoming. The food was excellent as usual and it's definitely the best B&B you can stop in. All the rooms have all you need, TV, nice bed and a end suite. I travel all up and down the country and I can't say I have ever stayed in a B&B that's more "hotel" looking. Restaurant is clean and fresh and so is the food, you can always tell when the best ingredients have been used!
I would encourage anyone who's planning a visit to Alcester to stay here. You will not be disappointed.
