Stayed at the Unicorn for 4 nights, we were a little dubious after reading some of the reviews on here, however after reading the glowing reports on their website we decided to book...mainly due to the price and location.
What a pleasant surprise! The hotel is a lovely old building with character and a warm homely feel. We were welcomed by a very helpful young man on reception who gave us lots of information regarding where to eat and how to access the wi-fi. The room we stayed in was room number 3, it was spotlessly clean, newly decorated with sheets and towels to die for!
Decided to book breakfast on arrival, very reasonable at £5 and a fantastic selection all freshly cooked and delicious, this led us to book breakfast for every morning (Tip:try the waffles)
If we were to be picky we would say that the bathroom does need a bit of attention, some of the tiles looked a little worse for wear but for £45 a night we cant complain. The new owners explained that the hotel is undergoing a big refurbishment but this can only be done bit by bit and from what we have seen so far this could be the place to be in Skipton.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back next year. If you are looking for 5* luxury then this is not the place for you, but if you want a warm welcome, great breakfast at a reasonable price then this is the hotel of choice. Thanks again for a lovely stay, next time we will bring the dog
