I have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times and every time its been exceptional. I cannot praise the staff enough both front of house and behind the scenes. I look forward to my next stay at this fabulous hotel.

Velvet hotel is in a great location in Manchester - based on Canal Street in the heart of the gay village - with lots of bars, clubs & restaurants on the doorstep (literally), and China Town and the Northern Quarter within a few minutes walking distance, there is so much variety for a night out - there's something for everyone....

A wonderful hotel, with wonderful staff in a brilliant location. I cannot recommend this place enough, it is a short walk from the station and is right by the canal, with easy access to lots of bars and a lively nightlife. The staff are superb and really make an effort to make you feel welcomed.

I've stayed at Velvet several times and have rated them until this point as fantastic, but my last visit to the Penthouse was poor (obvious marks/scuffs on wall, shower water seal broken, steak overcooked). I emailed them directly with feedback rather than review them on TripAdvisor because I believed that to be the exception. I was offered a complimentary upgrade... More

My partner and I were looking forward to staying in a smaller boutique style hotel rather than a big corporate brand hotel such as the Hilton or Radisson however we were left feeling slightly disappointed. When we arrived we had a pleasant welcome by the reception staff and got into our room about 30 minutes before check-in which is 3pm.... More
