5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a Birthday treat; and it certainly lived up to expectations. The hotel was extremely helpful, laying out rose heart and petals at my partners request to surprise me on arrival. Room was opulent, with quirky touches like the duck! Not cheap but well worth the money, very convienient location, nice room, massive bed, good food and nice... More

Our room was clean and well stocked. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was clean. The décor was not quite to my taste (above the bed there was a picture of a man, possibly jesus, who had been shot in the stomach with bow and arrow, and the picture frame was covered in barb wire type material). There... More

After looking for a hotel in Manchester centre, there was not much of a price difference between approx. 10. However they all looked rather boring and overpriced. Velvet looked different and a treat for a long weekend away. We stayed in the cheapest room (which was £150) but with the decor, large and comfortable bed and rubber duck in the... More

My boyfriend and I booked one night more to suit location and convenience. We arrived early so left our luggage while we explored and when we went back our luggage had already been taken to our room, so courteous. We were shown up to the room and once shown in offered a complimentary tray of tea and biscuits or a... More

I have been looking forward to staying at the velvet hotel for a couple of years but was never able to book in for the time myself and my husband wanted to visit, so I booked this trip well in advance. The room was lovely, we even got a couple of ideas for home decor for our own house! There... More

I stayed in the hotel on Thursday 25th September with my boyfriend in room 35. It was a lovely room and the service was great! It turned out to be an extra special stay as my boyfriend proposed to me in the room. I checked out that morning after having a great stay very happy. However this was all ruined... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Velvet for one night to explore Manchester. He booked the room through booking.com and booked us into a Velvet King room. A couple of days prior to arrival we received an email with information regarding where to park, what time check in was, informing us we were welcome to drop off our... More

Lots of attention to detail like fresh milk and coffee in rooms, DVDs to borrow at no charge. Staff very communicative and pleasantly informal. Room had character and very nicely decorated. Bed could've been a bit more comfortable (futon - I think - was on the hard side). A boutique hotel without being pretentious makes for a fab environment for... More

Fantastic hotel, completely unique, has the smaller touches that the big chains don't have....character, every room is stylish and original....the service was fantastic too. Next time I visit (and there definitely will be a 'next time') I hope to enjoy the food and bar....but for a stay in a hotel, and a great Manchester location, it can't be beaten!
