A fantastic location on the banks of the river Trent. If you have reason to be in this part of the country then this is a good place to stay. But don’t come to stay here especially... This is really a dining pub business where the hotel accommodation receives secondary interest and attention. The room and the furnishing were rather... More

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.

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

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.

Stopped over on a business trip and found this to be up to standard again, I have used this hotel before and as usual did not disappoint. The staff are friendly and very helpful and also happy to help. The only small down side was at my time of the visit there was a bar staff shortage. The assistant manager... More

Stayed for one night. Good clean comfortable room.Pub food meals but more than satisfactory. Breakfast cooked to order and very good. Excellent value at the price charged. Would certainly recommend, and would stay there again.
