    Secret Wow Factor in the Heart of Bolton

    We were looking for somewhere with personality, and we definitely found that at The Cloisters. We loved that we would be spending our wedding day surrounded by beautiful architecture and stained glass windows, having that "church" feeling without any religious connotations.
    All of the staff were amazing and worked with us to make our day special. Nothing was too much trouble. They were accommodating over the pandemic, and made sure we would be able to have our day just as we would want it.
    Jackie, Diana, Wesley and Libby are the best team we could have asked for. Wesley was so in control of everything, he was a step ahead all the time and we didn't need to worry about a thing. He really is an asset to The Cloisters Team.

    we had an amazing day and have to thank Jackie.

    We got married at the Cloisters on Saturday 5th January 2019, we had an amazing day and have to thank Jackie and all her team at the Holiday Inn. Jackie made planning our wedding so easy, everything we wanted was supplied even requests just a couple of days before the wedding. There are too many people to name individually but Keith the chef must be mentioned. We hosted a dinner on the Friday evening for 24 guests and the food was amazing as was everything we had served throughout the wedding. Lisa Jane who dressed the venue, I know we chose all the different elements but WOW doesn’t do the final finish on the room justice. As I walked in to get married it took my breathe away, it was even better than I imagined it could be. All the staff were great. Our guests could not believe that such an amazing venue exists. Thank you to everyone who made our day so special and have given us such wonderful memories.

    Absolutely amazing, first class service, the venue itself full of character. For Libby and all the staff nothing was too much trouble. The venue was decorated by Lisa Jane celebrations this lady works so hard and would recommend her to anyone. Then of course credit also must go to the head chef Keith the food was amazing he deserves a medal! Thank you, Keith, for a wonderful day and to Libby, Emma and all the staff at the Holiday Inn love to you all.

    Struggle finding a venue as beautiful

    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.

    Hidden Gem

    Just want to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Holiday Inn Bolton, I got married in the cloisters suite last week and the venue did the most amazing job! Just want to say a special thank you to Libby and Manisha who both work at the hotel and helped organise the most perfect day that ran smoothly and made it stress free. The guests complimented us so much on the venue and the decor. If anyone is looking for a wedding venue would recommend this hotel!
