5 friends and I had our Christmas get together here in the restaurant last week and we had a fabulous time. The food was lovely, good choice and arrived all together and the waiters were very friendly and helpful. One of our party is allergic to eggs and, once he discovered that his pudding had eggs in it, the staff... More

Well, what can I say except wow! We live only 3 miles from Manchester but we're taking a much needed respite break from the kids! I've never slept in a more comfortable bed. The room was beautiful, gorgeous bathroom which catered for both my husbands want for a bath in stunning style but also my need as a disabled guest... More

I thought that for 110 quid booked at fairly short notice for a city centre location, Velvet is great value. The room was very tastefully decorated, the bathroom great and the breakfast delicious. Staff were really helpful and I had a great night's sleep.

What a shame! The hotel isn't good enough to be top end. Sound proofing is a must but from the hotel response to this, they say it is up to the customer to realise it's on a busy street!? I've stayed in hotels in Soho where you can't hear a peep. Not too fussed on the staff either, came across... More

I normally stay at the Malmaison though thought I would try somewhere different and choose this hotel for location and good reviews. A really nice room and friendly service. Breakfast was really good. Velvet is right in the centre of Canal St and there's the rub. If you are on holiday and looking for a great place to stay then... More

What a delightful stay! The staff were friendly yet professional. The food from the Velvet restaurant was superb, extremely good. The Velvet bar was a wonderful venue that played some great music and the clientele polite and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay somewhere with flair and distinction. Overall 4.75 out of 5. Thank you.
