When we planned our new Venetian Conference and Banqueting Centre, part of a £2.5 million investment in the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Warrington Fir Grove, we aimed to create a state-of-the-art Northwestern venue for corporate meetings and functions. It proved a good decision. A very good decision. We’ve not just had fantastic feedback from our many clients but we’ve also been runner up in the prestigious Conference Venue of the Year award, selected from 280 hotels across the UK.
Our success is down to several things. For starters, the centre itself. It’s highly flexible, capable of hosting everything from a dinner for two, to a large seminar for hundreds of delegates. The arrangement of stylish rooms can be configured to meet you exact requirements. Planning a major banquet for 250? The combine the Venetian and Sorrento suites (which would also give you a boardroom for sixty, or classroom for 80). Perhaps you’re holding a board meeting for 30 directors? Then try the Palazzo.
There’s also our Appleton Suite syndicate room with the option of converting nearby bedrooms if you require a substantial number of areas. All come with easy ground floor access and are perfectly positioned with ‘spill out’ areas adjacent to the main rooms, with our coolly contemporary lounge and reception for delegate arrival and registration. They’re supplemented by our attractive sculpture courtyard for when the weather plays ball, providing a fabulous space for lunchtime BBQs, refreshments and post event drinks.
Naturally all come with super-speedy WiFi, air con and inbuilt projection, while the large suites boast Bose sound systems with lapel and handheld microphones.
Then there’s our relaxed yet highly professional staff, often described as ‘the jewel in the crown’. They include experienced, well-connected event planners who can take the strain out of organizing your function, and our highly rated kitchen who excel in everything from banquets to buffets.
Obviously the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Warrington Fir Grove comes with 52 stylish rooms if your delegates are staying overnight, but the final and very important piece in the jigsaw is our location, close to the M6 and M56 motorways and an easy hit from several international airports.
