MacDonald Kilhey Court Hotel & Spa

Located in 10 acres of beautiful grounds, the house was built in 1884 by Mr. Fairhurst a Wigan Brewer as a wedding gift to his new bride. The house was home to the family as well as seven servants plus a Nanny for the children, two Chauffer’s and two Gardeners.

Now Kilhey Court is a fabulous 4* hotel with an abundance of complimentary secure parking for up to 200 cars, 14 meetings and events spaces and 62 beautiful bedrooms.

Just 10 minutes’ drive from the M6 and M61 motorways and within easy reach of Wigan, Bolton and the rest of the North West you can escape to Macdonald Kilhey Court Hotel, a perfectly accessible place to do business. With unlimited free WiFi access throughout the hotel and a well-designed self-contained meetings and events centre surrounded by acres of gardens, create inspiring strategy, reward colleagues or enjoy the peace and quiet for training at our meeting venue.

The main country manor house of the hotel has just benefited from a £1/2 million investment program to upgrade 14 bedrooms and rejuvenate the main events room; the Lakeside Suite. Enjoy beautiful views from your plush bedroom or create special, picture perfect wedding memories overlooking our landscaped gardens and lake. There are few wedding venues in the North West of England that can offer such picturesque surroundings and award-winning food.

You can unwind in our wonderful Vital Spa and enjoy time in the pool, Jacuzzi and steam room or indulge in a Spa treatment using only the finest Elemis products and relax in our dedicated Relaxation Room.
