    Urban chic with wonderful staff

    Whitworth Locke is now our go-to venue for just about anything and was a fantastic place to host our wedding. Its such a beautiful space that both of us instantly felt was the right place for us. The hotel is such an impressive and unique building but it still feels fun and relaxed. We loved the urban nearly industrial feel of the red brick and metal atrium paired with the fun colours and leafy vibe throughout - it's an instagrammers dream but somehow managed to avoid feeling pretentious or like it was trying too hard.

    The rooms are all very comfortable, well stocked and have the same cool vibes that the rest of the venue has. The staff were amazing, from Tom at the front desk to Denis the handyman. Vicky and then Hayley the Event Managers and Thomas the Deputy Hotel Manager were lovely people to work with and inspired a lot of confidence that our day would run well. Their organisation was perfect which is especially impressive given we were planning while navigating covid restrictions and the guidelines changing only 3 weeks before the wedding day! I work for the NHS so I was worried about the safety of my guests but every step was taken to ensure the event was as safe as possible and on the day no ask was too much for them.

    We don't live far away and will absolutely be taking every opportunity to return and keep in touch with this great team and wonderful venue.

    Whitworth Locke's reply:

    It was such a pleasure to be able to host your special day here at Whitworth Locke! We appreciate you working so closely with us and working around the ever changing government guidelines!

    We can not wait to see you around the hotel again in the near future :)

    Best Wishes
    Hayley and The Whitworth Team
