4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although this hotel is in the heart of the gay district please do not let that put you off, the room I had was very spacious, clean and tidy, the bed was also very comfortable, and I enjoyed a good nights sleep. I found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly, the restaurant on the lower ground floor... More

This is not only the best hotel in Manchester, it is one of the best in the UK. The rooms are beautiful, the service is first class and the food is excellent. It is worth a trip to Manchester just to stay here. I've stayed here many times for business and pleasure and I love it!

A tiny bit disappointed with my stay. Was planning a special night away from the kids and wanted a really nice/luxurious setting. I spent a lot of time researching Velvet and booked based on the great comments it was getting. For a 4 star rating I would have expected a higher standard of fixtures and fittings on the room. Although... More

Such a beautiful hotel, with everything you could want on a romantic night away :) They even gave us free bubbly when we arrived. We booked room 16 and was not disappointed, the bed was spacious and very comfy, and it the bathroom was nice with a big bath. We will be returning for another break again soon - wouldn't... More

Gorgeous hotel, service was wonderful. We had one of the penthouse suites, split over 2 levels, large downstairs bathroom is 2 sinks, a sink and freestanding clawfoot bath. We had a full dining table and sofa area with a huuuuge TV. The bed area was on a mezzanine with a toilet and dressing area. There was also another TV up... More

Myself and my partner have visited Velvet restaurant often....sometimes the food is amazing for pub grub. Their soups and paninis are lovely together on a frosty, grim day. The staff however there are mixed. One lady looks cheerful but it's almost impossible to get her to smile! I can't work out whether she hates her job or us! Presentation wise... More

This is a fantastic boutique hotel which always gives you a warm welcome. Great individually decorated rooms, great cocktails in the bar and the restaurant is fabulous too. I'd like to give a 5* but little things let it down this trip such as missing towels but it's a solid 4.5 and still my go to place in Manchester.

My boyfriend and I only stayed here for a few nights, but I wish it could have been for longer! Everything was perfect, the rooms, the food, the staff! Nothing was too much trouble for them, and from the Moment we stepped in to the Velvet, to the moment we left, they were super helpful and very friendly. Our room... More

A nice quality hotel in the centre of Manchester. Really enjoyed my stay here. Good room with good facilities. Some front street rooms do suffer from noise, but that's only to be expected due to the surrounding nightlife. The stay was good. Reception and restaurant staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast was vey tasty. Would recommend this hotel. Thank... More
