    Food was nice and the room had a great view

    bar closed at 9pm which was a shame as we fancied one more drink before bed after a long, long walk

    the small town is a lovely stopover point if crossing Britain away from the bustle of the motorway. The Unicorn is really easy to find. it is in a lovely old coaching in, and rooms are renovated outbuildings. It's also the only one place to eat in the village, but the food is really good, so no problem!

    my initial welcome could have been a bit warmer, and same at arrival for dinner, but I think the owners are a bit understaffed, so forgivable. Owner much friendlier in the morning at breakfast.

    Fabulous Hotel. Room was large, bed was so comfy I didn't want to get up! Shower was powerful. Food was excellent, staff were friendly. Everywhere was clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

    Nothing.
