This is a pleasant hotel which provides many thoughtful touches and generally good service. The rooms do really have a touch of luxury and are well equipped although my shower was broken. The breakfast service is not quite as good, it was slow and inaccurate although palatable. The location is convenient but the view of the canal filled with rubbish... More

I've been to Velvet many times to drink and have always wanted to stay, my husband surprised me with a nights stay as we were in town for a gig. We had room 36 a balcony king looking down on Canal street which on a Wednesday was nice and quiet. Check in was quick and easy and once we had... More

My partner booked a night in the penthouse room (room 405) as a special treat - and what a treat it was! Check in was quick, and the receptionist showed us to the room. Once he'd given us a room tour, he left and came back a short time later with fresh milk, ice, lemon etc - a really nice... More

Stayed three nights and had an enjoyable stay. The staff were attentive and the location is excellent. Rooms are a little on the small size and the balcony is not very usable but for a few nights it was fine. Noise level not high as we were on a high floor and many bars close early. Would stay again if... More

This was a one night stay following a business trip. My partner came to meet me and I booked this as a surprise. Both of us loved the hotel, it was private and so deluxe. Dark and interesting. Nice staff all organised and polite. Would choose to stay here again if in Manchester.

Really nice hotel inside. Very friendly and helpful staff. Welcome tray of tea/coffee etc on arrival was lovely. Really nice to get fresh milk and ice & slice in your room everyday (and proper filter coffee!). Very clean room, good size, nice bathrooms and good showers. The decoration in the rooms is good quality, quite masculine but nice - though... More

Outside was not so pre-possessing, it looked like a converted pub, but it was luxurious inside. Very quiet on a Tuesday night. Staff helpful at breakfast and in looking after our luggage. Really liked the exposed brick, wooden beams and girders in the rooms.

A lovely boutique hotel. Rooms are not large but big enough and beautifully decorated. Very clean and very well appointed. The bar downstairs serves nice cocktails. It's got a rear entrance so you don't have to go through the busy Canal St if you arrive in the evening. Very well located for visits to the city centre and its attractions.... More
