Stayed here for one night. Charming building, but they seemed to be a shortage of staff as it took a while to get someone to the front desk to check in and then the lady who arrived apologised as their chef wasn't in and she was cooking. She did an alright job though - the food was nice. The waitress... More

Location is convenient, right on main north-south road yet a very short stroll to the charming old streets and square of Stow. Staff were exceptionally helpful and good listeners--special kudos to Wendy, who was filling a lot of shoes with the manager under the weather. Breakfasts were fine; had one dinner there and it was gourmet quality at a fair... More

This is a lovely hotel, full of charm and character, in a really good location for touring round the Cotswolds. The upstairs area is a bit tired with some carpets threadbare and it is not ideal for people with mobility problems because there are lots of stairs but the staff are really friendly and the bedrooms are clean and comfortable....

A friend and I have just returned from three nights at the Unicorn and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful and our breakfast each morning was excellent - some of the best cooked bacon I have had in a hotel for ages. The location was also spot on - a mere two or three... More

This was a lovely hotel with a lot of character. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the food is absolutely delicious. We managed to book the last room as it was valentines weekend. It was a twin room but the staff complied with our request to push the beds together to make it a double without any fuss.... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights last week and had a very pleasant few days. Hotel itself is undergoing major refurbishment (much needed) but this did not impinge on us at all as it was in a separate wing of the building. The general fabric of the hotel is very "tired" and any improvements are going to be costly.... More
