Stopped at the Ibis Wellingborough on Saturday 17/08/2013 for an overnight stay for the Monster Truck Show 2013 at Santa Pod Raceway.
It was our first time staying at an Ibis Hotel, but I was quite impressed, especially considering the cost. The hotel is clean, the staff helpful and friendly and the hotel rooms are what you'd expect from a travel lodge type hotel. Our room consisted of a double bed, settee bed, dressing table and chair, tv, tea & coffee making facilities and an ensuite bathroom with large standing shower.
There is a McDonalds restaurant and a pub called The Priory just over the car park for anyone who doesn't want to eat in the hotel. The Priory pub has adult and kids section with a playing area out the back. The meals are not very good and I would not recommend them.
The only negative point about our visit to the Ibis Hotel is that we had a second floor room which overlooked the main front car park. The noise generated by other guests returning to the hotel drunk was a problem until about 3am - not great after travelling such a long way or when you've got kids that need their sleep!
