Is a major celebration coming up? A significant birthday, anniversary or a graduation? Perhaps you have to organize a family get together, or a sporting or charity dinner? Problem solved. The Best Western Hallmark Hotel Manchester Willow Bank has hosted all of these. Several times. We’ve earned a stellar reputation for taking out the hassle and putting in the enjoyment.
What’s the key to our success? Our versatile, recently refurbished array of five suites, are capable of hosting just about every celebration. It could be an intimate family gathering or drinks reception in our Enigma Bar, or a seated feast for 30 in the Rylands Library, or a formal banquet for 100 – or buffet and evening dance for 150 – in our Gallery Suite with its dance floor and private bar. It really doesn’t matter. Whatever your function, we can deliver.
Of course, it helps to have brilliant staff including our experienced event coordinators. With contact books overflowing with details of trusted local suppliers for everything from flower to photographers to printers for place names, they can lead you through the organization from start to finish, ensuring your celebration is exactly as you hoped for. They work hand-in-hand with our acclaimed kitchen, ensuring your party gets exactly the right food be it a banquet, buffet or brilliant canapés. And, don’t forget, should your guests be staying over to drain every last drop of enjoyment from the evening, the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Manchester Willow Bank has 116 ensuite rooms.
While we appreciate every function is highly personal, we offer a range of high value, low hassle event packages for everything from Christmas parties to christenings, Sunday lunches and proms, when we get seriously creative with themed parties including a Hollywood Night at the Oscars and Renaissance Masked Ball.
On an entirely different note, the hotel also provides discreet, sympathetic service for funeral receptions.
