This hotel has all you want in a boutique hotel, I wish I coule have stayed longer. The staff were genially friendly and really helpful and did actually seem pleased to meet you. The WiFi is important to me when I'm on holiday, but this trip was for work and it's one of the best hotel WiFi signal strength and... More

I love this hotel. In the city centre a bijou hotel with friendly staff and good service. The extra touches serve to make your stay a memorable one. I am sure you can find cheaper nearby but me, I have already booked my next visit to Manchester in the Velvet.

Enjoyed every moment... a delight. A gem in the trendy heart of Manchester. The style of the hotel is a treat, and the price of drink and food is more than reasonable. A lovely lunch to be had canal side, and a great late night bar.

Stayed for a Friday night, location of the hotel was ideal both by parking and very central in the city! Ricky who we booked through was perfect, very attentive and informative. We received plenty of information prior to arrival which was handy. The hotel itself was extremely clean and the rooms were excellent. Would highly recommend

I have now stayed at Velvet Hotel twice and both times have been brilliant. From walking up the stairs to walking down them after the one night stay. The staff are polite and friendly, the rooms are AMAZING!

I was looking for a boutique hotel close to the Manchester Picadelli train station and found this gem. Excellent location and very nice and well appointed rooms. Each one is a little different but I stayed in room 21 and loved it. The welcome tray they give you along with all the other ammenties are very appreciated. And, best of... More

Absolutely beautiful room. Lovely hotel. Lovely bar. Lovely welcome tray. I can't really fault the place apart from pricey minibar and having to buy an expensive shaving kit from them as they didn't have cheaper free ones! LOVE THE SHEEP ON THE BALCONY.

Dear guest We always love to hear that guests love our hotel and had a lovely stay. So, thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you love our resident sheep, Deirdre. She doesn’t get as much recognition as she is due. For future guests’ information, she can be found grazing in one particular room, I wonder if you will... More

Lovely hotel with well appointed rooms.. friendly staff and a great location. We only stayed one night and had one of the suites. This was a very modern design and was well laid out. Velvet is located right in the city center and smack bang in the middle of the village so perfect for night out and shopping trips.

Still talking about our stay here today. Stayed a couple of months ago, it was simply wonderful. Lovely food in the bar and espresso martinis to die for. Staff lovely. Breakfast hot and nicely presented. Wanted to stay another night in this clean, quirky, classy place. Would definitely recommend.

Dear guest What more can we want than to leave a lasting impression! Comments like yours make what we do worthwhile. So thank you. The espresso Martinis are very, very popular. We have lots of gorgeous cocktails but you have chosen one of our perennial favourites. Between 4pm and 7pm every day we have a cocktail promotion and our bar... More
