My sister and I stayed at the Unicorn hotel for 4 nights at the beginning of April this year. The checkin process was quick and easy and the lady on reception was welcoming and helpful. All the staff we came in contact with were delightful but I would like to make a special mention about Chelsea, who seemed to be able to turn her hand to anything, and was always delightful to us and the other hotel guests. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for any of the staff, including the manager, when it came to helping or finding out informaiton when we asked.
While it is not a standard tourist chain hotel it is a lovely hotel complete with beams, fireplaces and creaking floorboards. It is on the Fosse Way which can be a bit busy but it is hardly a motorway so it is pretty quiet by late in the evening! The twin room we had was at the back so admittedly we had no noise problems. It was a really good size, spotlessly clean and wondrously...the windows could be opened. Tea and coffee making facilities were included and a lovely packet of biscuits were left each day. The bathroom was lovely and lovely soaps and bath gels were available to use. The breakfasts were good and the two occasions we ate in the restaurant the food was really good.
Both my sister and I would not hsitate to stay at the Unicorn again should either of us be fortunate enough to head back to the Cotswolds in the future. If you expect a standard, chain style hotel find a Holiday Inn. If you like something authentic and very comfortable staffed by very helpful people then give it a try.
