Lovely hotel in a delightful location. Rooms are big bright and airy. My only criticisms would be having taken a shower I noticed the shower gel bottle was empty ( although if I had remembered to bring my own shampoo then this would not have been a problem) and sin join sin the ketchup served at breakfast was not Heinz!!....

Christmas in Nottingham to visit family again. When I visited in September I mentioned that I liked the room I was in and requested if I could book it again. Due to circumstances I was informed it wasn't available and was reserved for room 15. A previous post (Actually from quite a while back) said room 15 was not a...

Arrived today at 12-30 for a lunch with the family. Having placed our order for food and drinks we had to wait what seemed like an eternity. On arrival of our main course the waitress managed to hit the back of my head with one of the plates. Two of the hot lunches were served with warm chips! No wonder...

I stayed there Thursday even and looked on this site to see what it looked like. I was apprehensive tbh but the accommodation was fine, bit squeaky but very clean and comfortable. The Food was great and was plentiful and staff very helpful. Well done and I will stay there again.

The location of the Unicorn Hotel is superb overlooking the river Trent. The room, with its view of the river, was very comfortable with nice furnishing. The lack of a phone for an early call worried us somewhat but the Manager could not have been more helpful arranging for a knock on the door to ensure we did not miss...

Set on the bank of the Trent this is a Marstons Inn. We stop here a couple of times a year because it is near Newark (8 miles) but has the quiet location and views of the narrow boats. Food is what you would expect from a chain. Beer is good .... Pedigree! Staff are all very friendly and helpful.
