Where to begin then, with the popular resort of Northampton? The Ibis is located within the Sol Centre, which presumably is a reference to sunny weather. The sun never shines over this grim [--]. Although location is everything, and in this instance within 10 metres of the hotel one could easily be tattooed, pierced, have a kebab, get glassed or even pick up a druggy looking hooker. Quality. The hotel itself is clean and functional. The cheap squeezy soap is bolted to the wall to stop people from stealing it, and the windows are screwed shut, presumably to stop the guests from jumping. I sat on my bed watching the rain lash the dirty windows and hoped for death to come soon.
I awoke the next morning to the grim reality of the Northampton rush hour. The whole place was gridlocked for no obvious reason save for bad town planning. My stay in Chernobyl was better.
