What happened to Park Hall?

On February 7 2022, the former Best Western Hotel suddenly closed, cancelling all upcoming weddings it was set to host, much to the dismay of two couples from Wigan.

Following its shock closure, it was revealed that the hotel had entered into an agreement with Serco to repurpose the hotel as accommodation for asylum seekers.

However, just three days on from the hotel’s closure, on February 10, it was announced the hotel would not be able to house asylum seekers.
