"I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all the staff at the Holiday Inn. We held our wedding there at the start of September and the team did an amazing job at coordinating our Indian Ceremony, Lunch Civil Ceremony, Drinks Reception and Evening Reception all in one day without any issues.

I would like to give special thanks to Emma for always answering my emails why I was trying to organise the wedding from Sydney and also t Libby who ensured the day ran smoothly without any hiccups.

I would highly recommend the Holiday Inn Bolton as a wedding venue, The Cloister Suite is beautiful and the team are so organised you will have a stressed free day!"

Bride and Groom


"My husband and I got married at the weekend and chose The Holiday Inn Bolton Central for the venue of our Reception after the ceremony. We have both been married before so this was quite a small party but the staff at the Holiday Inn still provided us with amazing service to help make the day a special and fantastic experience!
Right from the outset Emma Noone (Conference & Events Co-ordinator) could not have helped us more and was completely accommodating to all our requests for the day. She was in constant contact prior to the day so made us feel really special as important customers for our big day.
All the staff we had contact with were extremely pleasant, the chefs very accommodating to our special dietary requests for some vegan family members, with not a hint of any restrictions or trouble for them and all the food was wonderful on the day.

The staff at the hotel for our wedding day made it wonderful!! Thank you to everyone especially Emma Noone!"
Liz and Aaron Hargreaves - Wedding Day 10 January 2015
