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

We stayed for one night as we were passing on the river (excellent moorings by the way) and fancied a night in a proper bed. Arrived at 4 pm, without a reservation (might not have got a mooring) and were given the last room, which was of a decent size, clean and comfortable, and had a river view....with breakfast for...

We booked a one night stay at the Unicorn whilst visiting family nearby. It's part of the Marstons Inn chain and so is a pub/restaurant with rooms above. The location is nice as it is right by the river with plenty of parking to the front and rear though it was busy when we arrived on a sunny Saturday. Check... More

Four of us recently had the undoubted pleasure of staying at this hotel. The welcome was great, the rooms were really comfortable and the showers were absolutely fantastic. We arrived at about 3pm, and after booking in decided to have a cold drink in the bar, well set out as although a huge room it is broken up into smaller... More

Stayed at the unicorn for 2 nights and all I can say is I cannot fault the place at all. It was extremely busy on both nights - Friday and Saturday and the staff coped very well considering the amount of people in the place and the wedding party that seemed to be staying. I would highly recommend this hotel... More

This is a hotel that is an add on to a popular riverside pub nicely located for seeing Nottingham and the Ale of Belvoir. There is a number of steps to get to the rooms which are spacious and clean. Breakfast which was included was very good and the pub does reasonable meals in the evening. Large car parks front... More

visiting family stayed here for 2 nights in May and found accommodation fine. Two lots of stairs to negotiate to bedrooms. Not suitable for people with disabilities as no lift. Clean and neat rooms. Prices seem variable and breakfast was good and included in price. Located on the River Trent at Gunthorpe with ample parking. Restaurant meals only average and... More

We just needed a one night stay close to the National Watersport centre. The Unicorn was perfect for our needs, but would actually be a really great base for a longer stay. Check-in was friendly and efficient, the room was really large and a nice little touch of some bottles of water provided. We ate in the restaurant, food was... More
