“Excellent Inn”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for one night only when visiting Nottingham. Was reasonably priced so was not expecting anything brilliant. Was pleasantly surprised. The room was small but very clean and tidy. The breakfast was excellent. Had an evening meal that was very good considering this is a large pub chain restaurant.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed two nights. Arrived on Friday night - service was good but the food was not great.
It was an ok hotel for stopping by as we were going to a wedding but nothing special!

Lovely walk by the river though and a nice bistro close by serving cakes and nice coffee.

Stayed on Saturday night, it was our second visit, lovely clean roon, modern bathroom, comfortable bed. Breakfast was freshly cooked , good quality, yes the service was a little slow, because the one girl on duty seemed to be doing everything. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Will be back again.

We were a group that met at the Unicorn on a Friday evening. The bar staff had little knowledge of the wine list and after a rather long delay ascertained that a lot of the wine list wasn't available. The first waitress had an incredible attitude and was openly hostile. The replacement service staff tried hard to recover the situation but were very busy with a lot of other customers. The food was variable but the biggest negative was the service attitude. I would think very carefully about returning.

Thank you for your comments, we are sorry that we didn't meet your expectations this time. I will use your feedback to assist in ongoing staff training with my team. In respect of limited wines on offer during your visit, this unfortunately was due to a pending menu change.
