Fantastic value. Comfy bed, hot shower, clean room, lovely full English breakfast and great location opposite the river Trent. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back. We didn't have an evening meal there so can't comment. Plenty of parking at the rear.

Breakfast delicious and meals at night were very good value for money and also delicious. Not at all what I thought it would be like. Very good value for the money and included breakfast. A delightful place to... More

A lovely hotel,comfortable and accomodating room,food was fab and definitely much more than a budget hotel. Staff were lovely,location very picturesque and suitable for all. When i booked this hotel i expected a pretty standard stay but i have to say we were delighted. Fantastic value and not at all basic...very happy and a great nights sleep.

Stayed with friends for a couple of nights to attend the Antique and Collectors Fair at Newark in rooms 5 and 7. Both have great views of the river, with lots of bird life to appreciate. The rooms were fine with refurbished bathroom, free wifi and tea/coffee making facilities. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful throughout our... More

Been at the bar for 30 mins and still not been served. In fact we've been swerved. Barmaid was rude. Told me I didn't order a double when I did. Customer is always right!??!! Flat drinks. Grumpy dump.

Oh dear, one of the worst meals for a long time - and it's right on my doorstep! Have eaten here many times and whilst the food isn't spectacular, its not off the radar price wise.Ordered the cheesy nacho combo with spicy chicken and it looked like it had been blown up!

stayed at the hotel recent and must say it was excellent. The beds were a dream, excuse the pun and the place was spotless. We also ate in the restaurant which was just as good. The burgers in particular were delicious and the chicken was so tender. We absolutely recommend the Unicorn.
