I stayed here for one night on a business stopover. Check in was easy and informal (the room was paid for in advance). This is a pub with a restaurant, and I was shown to my tom directly above the bar. The room was ok, spacious enough but quirky, with uneven floors which meant having to be careful when placing...

I booked into the Unicorn to attend the Cropredy - Fairport Convention Festival. I arrived mid morning Saturday and was welcomed by the management team who took my bags as the room wasn't expected to be ready for check in until 2pm. I phoned the Unicorn Inn mid afternoon to confirm that I would be arriving back after midnight. I... More

Loved this place....fun, quaint, friendly and a great place to stay. Found the Unicorn by chance when looking for hotels in Banbury....and so glad I did. From when I arrived I found the welcome warm and friendly, the ale excellent, the room was great (stayed in the Centaur) and the venison burger was absolutely fantastic. Was at ease chatting to...

This place has lots going for it. Nice building and location, good food and friendly staff. They are severely let down by poor quality control, and needless inefficiencies. Our room was not properly serviced on our second night there, or serviced AT ALL on our third night. This was solved by one of the bar staff on the first occasion... More

Very comfortable last Wednesday night, good food, good service, and very friendly staff. The hotel served real ale from a variety of breweries. A very great change (good) from the "mass produced" hotel chains.

We stayed for a girls weekend away. The greeting was welcoming and laid back even though we arrived during the busy evening dinner service. We had not booked for dinner and the dinning area was full but the manager managed to book us in for a late dinner which was amazing . Evening dinner was excellent and breakfast was tasty... More

I have just returned from a one night stay at The Unicorn Inn and I can't recommend it highly enough. The facade may be understated, but what lies behind is a real delight. The rooms were stylishly decorated with plenty of toiletries, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the evening meal was one of the tastiest I've eaten in... More

We have recently returned to staying at 'The Unicorn' and found it to be very good. The rooms have all been refurbished (including the plumbing which is now sorted) and redecorated to a high standard. The current owners have really made an effort to bring this venue up to a very good standard The restaurant is of a very high... More

We really enjoyed staying here and I have already recommended this to friends and family as a place to eat, to stay or just spend an evening in the good company of strangers at the bar. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. The food was really good and the staff were as attentive as they could... More
