I have been second time in Skipton, but this time instead to go straight to my business place, I preferred to stop to the Unicorn hotel. I was purposely to see how is looking this time inside, because first time when I have been I was very disappointed. Surprise…. Surprise… this time the entrance door was open, the corridor was...

We arrived and were greeted by friendly and polite staff. Rooms were nice and clean and have a good size tv with sky not that you usually book on the strength of the tv. The hotel is in a good place to access the shops and other attractions in Skipton. There is nightclub next door but we didn't hear anything...

This Hotel is perfectly placed just at the bottom of the main road in Skipton. Nice comfortable rooms and run by the friendliest accountant you could ever meet. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is freshly cooked to order and excellent. Even though our room was on the main road there was no road noise coming into the room that...

You find this place via a side door off Skipton high street. There's no car park, be warned. After a friendly check-in, we found our room was decorated in a modern style and was clean and tidy. We got to breakfast @ 07:30 but had to wait 15mins for the kitchen to fire-up. In the meantime there was a good...

The hotel is in the main bus station square above the Yorkshire Building Society. The access is via the side street, first impressions are not good (Remember you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression). The steps were dirty with rubbish and cigarette ends. However once inside on the first floor the décor is very good and...
