- "Loved the fact that it was within walking distance from the DW Stadium and Wigan town centre, which was a big selling point for us. We arrived in town for a party and being able to walk back was a big boon. Anyway, the room was fine. The staff seemed all very nice and I don’t think I came across a single issue."
- "Stayed at Wallgate Lodge when working in Wigan, the town is easily accessed. The house was lovely and newly refurbished, bright and airy. Bed was comfy, powerful shower in the modern bathroom, lovely kitchen and all the mod cons in the lounge. I will definitely be back when I am next working this way. "
- "The Premier Inn Wigan was my host for a few nights the other week. Was there as part of a work arrangement and had been a bit concerned about what awaited me. Turns out, I had no reason to be concerned. Easy enough to find and everything we needed was right there. Many thanks, would highly recommend to others."
- "Set in a very picturesque location, we stayed in a room clearly recently refurbished, smart and comfortable with a great en-suite. Breakfast was very good and all the staff provided good service. We had some enjoyable walks, lots of woodland. The only gripe we had was the bar prices which seemed excessive, otherwise good value."
- "First off, it’s really easy to find, which is great if you’re not that familiar with Standish or Wigan in general. I was visiting for a wedding so definitely fell into this category. Found the room to be properly prepared and cared for, clean as a whistle. The staff were pretty much always ready to help. Excellent experience."
- "All the staff were welcoming and attentive, our room was fine, the pool and gym were never too busy when we made use of them. The breakfast buffet was very good. Drinks in the bar are quite expensive. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others. Of all Bolton Hotels we considered, this is around a 15 minute drive from the town centre and is used for weddings and functions as well as being relatively close to the Macron stadium and the Middlebrook retail parks and also Horwich station too."
Standing on the banks of the River Douglas, Wigan may not immediately strike you as being a hub for tourism, but it's a town with plenty of history and many stories to tell. With over 200 listed buildings, there's a great deal of heritage to be explored here, as well as museums, parks and galleries. The town's waterways also provide plenty of opportunity for cycling and walking.
Wigan is also known for its culture, and in addition to its music festivals it is also the home of the annual World Pie-Eating Championship, attracting competitors from all over the world!
Sport is incredibly popular here, and the DW Stadium is shared by both Wigan Athletic Football Club and the Wigan Warriors rugby league team, providing outstanding facilities for both home and away supporters. Badminton is popular here too, and the town also boasts an inline skating team.
Wigan was one of the first towns in the country to be connected by the railways, and since then it has flourished into an economic hub with a huge variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment. If the bustle of Wigan town centre is too much for you, then it's easy to escape into the surrounding area to explore places like Standish and Aspull at a rather more sedate pace.
