The Ibis

The Ibis Hotel, Northampton, is located within Sol Central and offers fresh and affordable accommodation that is central and less than 1 minute walk from Northampton's train station. 

The Ibis Hotel, Northampton, is located on a piece of local history that dates back to the early 18th Century. The house situated on the west side of Pike Lane and the Ibis Hotel fronting Marefair was once the home of Philip Doddridge, a non-conformist and the founder of a local school for dissenting minsters. This particular academy has been viewed as being one of the more well known and notable of the Dissenting Academies during the period. The original location for the school belongs to the house where Doddridge lived on Marefair during the period 1730-40.

This site has had many different uses since the early 19th Century, one being the vicarage for All Saints Church. The later 19th Century saw the back premises used as a shoe factory while the front became a Temperance Hotel/County Commercial Hotel and Spencer's Hotel. During the early 20th Century for a short while it was known as Bletsoe House, then became a showroom for Grose’s Garage. The last fifty years, however, have seen it demolished in order to build the offices for Barclaycard which bought a lot of business to Northampton, then remodelled to house the Sol Northampton development and the Ibis Hotel. The Ibis hotel offers competitive meeting space and modern, comfortable rooms.
