Booked via app which showed photos that the Unicorn had a bar. When we arrived we found out that the Unicorn was undergoing 'a refit' which meant no bar. Room was OK, extremely dusty under the bed and wardrobe with matching ceiling cobwebs! Management very friendly and helpful. £350 for 2 nights would have been OK for full facilties, but... More

Beautiful accommodation in the heart of lovely Stow. The location was perfect for visiting Moreton in Marsh, Bourton on the water and Stratford Upon Avon. The suite (no.9) was spotless, very spacious and decorated to the highest spec. The hosts were fabulous and overall a great weekend.

Lovely apartsuite which had obviously been recently refurbished. We were met and shown to our very generous suite by the owners who had kindly been in communication prior to our arrival. The suite itself was huge and would have been perfect for a longer stay. Would definitely recommend this as an alternative to the traditional hotel stay.

The Unicorn was a perfect base for us to enjoy the Cotswolds and it was located very close to the picturesque Stow town centre square which has lots of choice for dining out. Our party was two adults and two children (aged 7 & 9) who stayed three nights as part of a family holiday touring the area. We stayed... More

We stayed here because we had a wedding at Hyde barn just a few minutes down the road. The aparthotel was beautiful, spotlessly clean, and the food left for us was most welcome. The lay out of our apartsuite was lovely very spacious rooms, brilliant communication with the owner Daniel and fabulous customer service we will definitely stay again.

The Unicorn aparthotel is perfect for any overnight (or more than one night) stay. Our group consisted of 2 middle aged couples, who were attending a friend's wedding in Lower Slaughter and our apartment (number 3) was absolutely perfect for us.
