We had a brilliant day. We cannot fault ANYTHING. The staff on the day were absolutely fantastic and really did do anything for us.
All of our guests were amazed by the room, we also had a lot of compliments on the food. The bar staff were excellent, specifically the 2 younger ones - I didn't catch their names.
Nothing I say will even come close to expressing how much we enjoyed our day and how grateful we are to everyone involved in making it as perfect as it was.

We really could not have had a more perfect day. You certainly put so much effort into details. I couldn't believe the room was already arranged to some degree at 7am, especially after a wedding the night before.
Everybody we have spoken to has said what a fabulous day and night, the venue was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff helpful and friendly.
Absolutely perfect, thank you to all involved.

The day was magical, the Cloisters Suite is amazing it's an old Capel so it looks like a church inside. I had amazing help through out my stay, Jackie was there every step of the way, reassuring me everything is going to plan. I couldn’t fault anything, everything was perfect I’d like thank Jackie for all her help, bridal attractions for my room dressing and Emma Jones my hair dresser did an amazing job on mine and bridesmaids hair. Wish I could do it all over again.

Our wedding day was amazing from start to finish, we could not recommend the team any more highly. Everything is organised for you by choosing which package suits your budget and then they help and organise things for you in a timely manner and organise all meetings leading up to your big day. Your day will go with ease with everything flowing easily on the day for you, letting you relax and enjoy your day even more. The Cloisters is definitely a HIDDEN GEM.
Thank you very much

We hired the Cloisters Suite for 3 action packed events, our civil ceremony, Indian Wedding and Reception Party. We needed a lot of support with coordination. All I can say is Libby, Jackie, Manisha and the rest of the hotel staff were very accommodating. Our guests loved this magical, characteristic venue. It has a total wow factor. I would totally recommend this venue for weddings, events and parties it is definitely a hidden gem.
Thank you to the Holiday Inn, Bolton you rock!

We cannot thank Libby and her team enough they are just incredible. The room looked stunning, the food was amazing, they took care of everything for us. Nothing was too much to ask. The cloisters really is beautiful, and the holiday inn make sure your day is as stress free as possible as they do everything for you. I think you'd struggle to find a venue as beautiful and as accommodating. This venue you had it all and if I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing.

From the start of our process Emma was great, it felt like any request we had was catered for, compared to other venues where we had point blank been told no. She was there to answer any queries at any time throughout our planning process. Libby then took over for the final meeting and was running our day. She again was amazing and everything that was asked of was done. I cannot recommend this place more. Our guest loved the day here and so did we! Thank you so much!

My husband and I recently got married on 9th May, 2015. Our ceremony was held at Bolton Parish Church, which was out of this world.
