Arrived at hotel late in the evening and had to go up a flight of steps to reach the reception area. The walls were in bad need of a lick of paint. On arrival there was a father with two small rooms enquiring about some welcome tray but the night manager was very rude to him and told him that... More

Lift requires room key which i find annoying. Hotel wouldnt let me invite my best friend back to the hotel ! said it was... More

stayed here for 2nd time, brilliant hotel. Check in staff were great & sorted out our luggage while we had some lunch downstairs - which was great & really busy for a Sunday lunch. The room had views over Canal Street with its own balcony, & the double shower was great. Loved the welcome tray we got with fresh milk... More

This hotel is inspired by the luxurious Velvet name. The room was great with plenty atmosphere. Beautiful furniture and artwork. Very romantic and the bed was huge. Service was excellent and the restaurant offers a wide selection of great value breakfast options. Good location between city centre and Picadilly. Would definitely go back.

stayed for one night during the week for my boyfriends birthday. Really friendly staff at reception and quick and easy check in. I had booked a room with the double bath and asked for The bath butler service to be ready when we arrived and I wasn't dissapointed. Bath was red hot, set out lovely with a tray of champagne...

We stayed over the Valentine's Weekend 13th to 15th February 2015. What an amazing Hotel, a little gem hidden away. The Staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble, our Room was fabulous and a bathroom to die for, especially the bath. We had breakfast one of the mornings and it was lovely, lunch was fab, so much choice and... More

Wanted to stay here for ages, always read reviews so was really excited to stay there. Couldn't fault reception staff, lovely and friendly. Was treated to 2 free cocktail vouchers for the bar for my birthday which was a lovely touch. Was thinking of treating ourselves to the 'bath butler' as we only have a shower at home. Was bitterly...

I stayed at the velvet and was impressed by the warmth from the reception that i received, which permeated through to my blissful four poster room with a balcony....every need was catered for ...from the very comfortable bed, smooth sheets, all types of herbal teas, ice in a bucket...and when i returned later in the evening, chocolates on my pillow,...

A nice looking place but lots of practical issues with the room that would drive me nuts if I was staying for any more than 1 night i.e. design was more important to them than practicality e.g. a old travel chest for a wardrobe that's short, doesn't hold much and is difficult to get things in and out of, very...

Breakfasts delicious and staff were very accommodating with special dietary needs. Room spotless. love the cosy feel of everything. although one night, I was woken up by a very "loved up" couples nighttime routine. However... More
