Being just 40 minutes from Glasgow and an hour from Edinburgh, the hotel is a popular venue for weddings as well as meetings, conferences and events and renovations have taken into consideration all customers.

The refurbishment comes after an extension of the hotel’s spa facilities in 2007 which included the installation of more beauty treatment areas and a larger pool.

The Rise of the North

Macdonald Manchester Conference Theatre

Historically London has always been considered the UK's preferred business destination but now with the emerging power of other regions, particularly the North, it is clear that many organisers are realising the benefits of travelling further afield for their events.

Both the government and local businesses are increasingly investing in the Northern regions, in both infrastructure and culture. From the opulence of Cheshire to the eclectic mix of Manchester, the variety and diversity of the North is to be celebrated.

Organisers are beginning to recognise the myriad of advantages of the region, and in the current climate it is even more essential that they can select a venue with the assurance that they are getting the best possible value and level of service.

With a wealth of options readily made available to organisers, it should come as no surprise that as the UK's largest privately owned hotel group, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is considered one of the ambassadors for bringing business out of London and into other regions. This experience and expertise has seen Macdonald Hotels satisfy the inevitable demands that come with hosting high profile conferences and events.

The award-winning venues provide the very best in meetings and conference facilities, legendary golf and spa offerings, exhilarating outdoor pursuits and culinary heaven in their restaurants, many of which are AA Rosette awarded.

The group's Meetings@ product presents a commitment to quality and attention to detail and the drive to ensure that the group remains in sync with the needs of their conference bookers.
