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

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...

We had a lovely night stay at this hotel for our wedding anniversary. It's charming fun and luxurious. In the centre, by the canal, lively until the wee hours. I felt I was in Amsterdam! Lots of little lovely touches like the gorgeous yellow rubber ducks that we couldn't help but take with us.... we did ask!

Quirky boutique hotel by the canal. Just a few minutes walk from Picadilly Station and all the fabulous shopping of central Manchester. Helpful, friendly staff and good food in the restaurant- we enjoyed two breakfasts and an evening meal. The room was stylish and furnished in an "over-the-top" kind of way - which we loved!
