Stayed at the hotel whilst on business, have to say a cracking place to stop. The staff are excellent and the beers good too. Its a great little hotel for a business traveller. It also is a great location for a walk if you have been in a car for some time, the canal is a great place to unwind.... More

We had lunch at The Unicorn Hotel today and enjoyed it very much. Situated on the banks of the river Trent this hotel has a great location. There is ample parking and the resturant and bars are very comfortable. The bar/ regsturant area is huge but the way it is set out makes it quiet and cosy looking. The staff... More

We stayed in this hotel many years ago when it was privately owned and as great. How disappointed we were to find that it had turned into a pub with rooms. There was a group of 7 of us so we had 4 rooms and every room had problems from broken toilets to cobwebs hanging from light fittings to dusty... More

We had been touring the UK and The Unicorn was to be our last hotel out of 6 at the end of the tour. Sadly, We have rated it as the worst. A pub with friendly staff, cheap pub food and pleasant location. A pub with drab rooms, so please do not expect hotel standards. We had requested a room... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay, however, I am sorry to read about your disappointment. Unfortunately all our rooms don't overlook the river, and where possible by request we would have tried to accommodate you in another room which would have been more preferable. More

Nice friendly hotel with the best of comfortable beds. Good food very reasonably priced and staff always helpful and charming. Attending a wedding at the venue next door so very handy. One criticism - the bath towels are a bit small.

I have been to the unicorn on several occasions and never had a problem until the last couple of times. I think the service is poor you have to wait ages for your meals to arrive if at all. Sometimes the meals are not cooked properly. It used to be a good place to eat but after this last time... More

We stayed for four nights and had an excellent stay. The location is superb and really surprised us. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Even though the bed was little too soft for us we would enjoy coming back. The bathroom in the room is exactly that and not a spa. Every room has a motif and that makes... More

Stayed in The Unicorn on 1st September Rooms are lovely and clean, very light and spacious. The staff are friendly and helpful. The full English breakfast was one of the best I have had. If I ever have to stay in the Nottingham area again I would definitely book again and would recommend to friends

We have just moved to the area and regularly go there for drinks and food which are both excellent and good value for money. Most of the staff are friendly and welcoming bar one! Her name is kat, she is the most ignorant, rude unfriendly person we have ever met! Such a shame as we would go there more often... More
