Meetings and events

Recipe for a successful conference, exhibition or board meeting: take a fabulous, easily accessible location and mix with versatile, state-of-the-art function suites, relaxed yet efficient staff and a highly regarded catering team. We’ve read, digested and followed those instructions to the dot – and that’s exactly why the Hallmark Inn Manchester South (formerly known as the Best Western Willow Bank Hotel) is one of the city’s favourite destinations for meetings and events.

For starters our lovely Victorian residence is based in a brilliantly convenient area in the southern part of the city, just a couple of miles from central businesses, entertainment and restaurants, but within easy reach of multiple motorway links (we’ve on-site free parking) and an expanding international air hub. It really couldn’t be much better.

Then there’s our recently refurbished conference venue. It offers five smart, stylish, well-appointed function rooms with detailing including wood paneling, leather chairs and historic photographs of Manchester and famous locals. Nearly all have air con, natural light and blink-of-an-eye fast WiFi, along with latest audiovisual technology. It’s simply a case of selecting which is right for the day, or picking and mixing several for a variety of events.

For small board meetings try the Dalton Suite; for theatre style events up to 50 people, the superb Rylands Library; and for larger gatherings, conferences and seminars, the Gallery Suite, which can seat 100 for a formal banquet and 150 for a more relaxed evening function. For refreshments, delegate registration and break out areas, there’s also our spacious airy Lowry Lounge.

To go with the facilities, the Hallmark Inn Manchester South has the staff. Superb staff. Our team includes dedicated, highly experienced event planners to help organize and run your function. They’re backed up by our top-notch inventive kitchen that can transfer its magic from the restaurant to create banquets, buffets and brilliant canapés. And, of course, we also have 116 ensuite rooms should delegates need to stay over for an evening function.

Contact us to see what we can do for your business. We offer Conference and 24-Hour Delegate packages (including executive ensuite rooms and supper) but it goes without saying that we’re highly flexible in creating exactly the corporate meeting or event you require.
