Very central location and therefore expected some noise. However the noise levels at night were intolerable. There was shouting and screaming outside all night (we were in a room at the back of the hotel on the second floor which was supposedly quieter!) We had the added noise of glass bottles being emptied regularly until the very early hours so... More

Booked a penthouse suite for my daughter and her partner and a king room for myself. Both were fabulous. We were taken up to our rooms and asked if we wanted tea or coffee which was swiftly brought up to us. Comfortable bed, quality linen, bathrobe and slippers. Loved it and would hope to return.

We only stayed one day before our travel from Manchester Airport. We had stayed in the area at this time in a different hotel for 5 days and at that time we ate dinner at the Velvet and at that time we heard of the hotel above and we decided to try it this year. We chose one of the... More

Stayed overnight last week ( Jan 2016) for second time. Personal service, great rooms, clean and full of boutique character. Parking round the corner also and food is good in the restaurant also. Highly recommend.

The room was awful compared to the ones on the website it's a total rip off there's much nicer hotels for half the price, the food in the room had dust on it, it had been there that long and they didn't let us check in till 10 past 4

Very comfortable hotel, especially bathroom (in the loft suite) and bed, despite a bit of noise at night from music. Only caveat is the early check-out at 11am, or till 1pm but only if you pay extra (and there was no way to waive it)!

The hotel is set on Canal street in Manchester so the location for us was perfect. The hotel is of a lovely boutique themed with nice little touches such as a welcome tray. The bar is very nice and relaxing. The faults are that you can hear everything! I could actually hear the spoken conversation that was going on in... More

Hi, we stayed here one night as I was in town for work. A short, pleasant stay. Staff were very, very friendly and helpful and the room was just perfect - I had to stay in and do some work (wifi was fine) and then after a large meal nearby it was comfy enough to just laze around in. All... More

Having seen this hotel online a while ago I've been wanted to stay here every since. It did not disappoint, excellent welcome, service and the rooms are far more stylish than any chain hotel. Definitely reccommended!
