A great welcome at the Velvet. The room was spacious, tasteful and immaculately clean. We received a complimentary welcome tray on arrival followed by an offer of more fresh milk, tea, coffee and biscuits later on in the evening. We would definitely stay again.

Have just spent another wonderful 4 days at Manchester's Velvet Hotel and once again it is one of the best hotels I have stayed in around the world. The staff are so friendly and it feels more like a home than a hotel. The rooms are clean, spacious and so comfortable, especially if you splash out and book one of... More

Well, this was our third visit to the Velvet and yet again it has exceeded our expectations. I could write a long rambling review but I will keep it simple. The rooms are fab, this time we had No:34, large bath and a balcony. Woke up this morning and drank a cuppa tea outside in the sunshine and watched Manchester... More

We rarely leave reviews (mainly as we always forget!) but we definitely wanted to leave a review as we feel that the low scoring reviewers must surely be reviewing the wrong hotel. We did a last minute booking for a nice bank holiday weekend away and the staff and follow ups and pre boking info couldn't have been more efficient.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July as part of a 6 week trip to the UK/ Europe. The staff were awesome and the room comfortable. The breakfast each morning was buffet and/or a la carte. The a la carte quantities were enormous but so yummy. The location to Piccadilly station is a 5 minute walk and the choice... More

Very busy restaurant with bank holiday diners, service exceptional with the level of service you would expect from a less busier day. Staff provided Excellent service, lovely fresh food, good service even at pride weekend! Friendly staff, quick service, no queuing, lovely ambience. Right in the heart of the gay village. Reasonable prices

It has taken a long time to do this review as we left feeling so disappointed and upset after our visit that we really wanted to forget the entire experience. The hotel itself is nice and cosy and our room was nicely decorated. Breakfast is also quite good. However, on the first night of our stay we were kept awake... More

Artwork all around and my favourite part was they give u a... More

Velvet just thinks it is far better than it is. It has the laziness that, I guess, has come from its prime location. It is so utterly pleased with itself that it's forgotten (or never knew) that attention to detail and serving the style of the guest is the secret of great boutiqueness in a hotel - in fact greatness...
