4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a fantastic boutique hotel which always gives you a warm welcome. Great individually decorated rooms, great cocktails in the bar and the restaurant is fabulous too. I'd like to give a 5* but little things let it down this trip such as missing towels but it's a solid 4.5 and still my go to place in Manchester.

My boyfriend and I only stayed here for a few nights, but I wish it could have been for longer! Everything was perfect, the rooms, the food, the staff! Nothing was too much trouble for them, and from the Moment we stepped in to the Velvet, to the moment we left, they were super helpful and very friendly. Our room... More

A nice quality hotel in the centre of Manchester. Really enjoyed my stay here. Good room with good facilities. Some front street rooms do suffer from noise, but that's only to be expected due to the surrounding nightlife. The stay was good. Reception and restaurant staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast was vey tasty. Would recommend this hotel. Thank... More

Large room. Staff was very attentive and courteous. Furniture was old and scratched up though. Amazing location! All in all its a great place to stay. The 4 stars instead of 5 is because I still feel it's overpriced for what you get in comparison to other hotels in proximity.

This hotel is great. Right in the heart of the city but not your usual bland business box. All of the rooms are individual and quirky. Velvet is on Canal Street - Manchester's gay epicenter - but you don't have to be gay to stay there. My group of three straight friends received an extremely friendly and informative welcome from...

Everything about this place was amazing. The room was outstanding and food was to die for. The staff at the hotel where the most helpful I have found anywhere. The staff went out of their way to get us into the room as quickly as possible, they took our bags to the room as we had gone for food as... More

Superb location. Exceptional staff. Quality rooms. World class service. Of the hundreds of hotels we have staying in, this one ranks amounts the best. Not overly priced for such quality in a prime location right in the heart of the nightlife. Best of both, a great nights sleep and action right in the doorstep. Highly recommended.

This is the second time I've visited (the first being 3 years ago) and if anyone ever asks about a quality hotel I've always pointed them in the direction of Velvet. The staff are always friendly and immediately saw us to our room before providing a welcome basket of biscuits, sugar, milk and refreshments. Room service is provided and an... More

Brilliant location (walkable from Man Piccadilly) The staff are friendly, welcoming and focussed on your comfort as their guest . Rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean..like the lighting in the bathroom that illuminates the room when walking into it at night .. Due to the conversion of the building, I'd recommend a room on the top floor..We did hear... More
