PrestonWell, I’m here at the Holiday Inn, Preston. Just thought I’d share the view from my room. Great, huh?

To be fair, I’ve seen some very lovely buildings while getting lost in the one-way systems coming into the city. I don’t know much about Preston, but it seems ok.

I think the view from the hotel is just…well…unfortunate.

    This is funny. Reminds me of going to Lancaster last year and arriving in beautiful town and cabbing it to hotel. Turned out to be Travel lodge at motor way services with view of petrol pumps, car park and motorway and boasting a Burger King, which incidentally involved crossing said car park, petrol station etc etc! Who ever said travel was glamourous?

    I just love how it’s called “Holiday Inn”. I wonder if anyone’s ever spent a holiday at a Holiday Inn?

    That view is of a building which some people want to have listed! It serves a vital community function – it attracts all the ne’r do wells, leaving the rest of the town free of them!
