“Needs a re-furb!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2007

Stayed at The Unicorn for 2 nights during June 2007. We were given room 5, which has to be the smallest hotel room we'd ever stayed in. Typically, this already small (and tatty) room had been modified to squeeze in an equally small en-suite.

Minor annoyances were: tv remote did not work, and neither did thelight over the tiny sink in the en-suite. The extractor fan made a high pitched screeching noise when first switched on, which set your teeth on edge! This lasted around 8 mins or so before going silent. Lastly, the room was not particularly clean with quite a build up of dust in various areas.

Food in the restaurant was average, but a little pricey. Breakfasts however, were plentiful and well cooked. There was a good atmosphere in the bar at night, which was really the best feature of this hotel.
