We've eaten here a few times when we visit England and the food has always been fab. But more so is the cocktails they can provide with dinner I asked for one they'd never made and the bartender googled it and did a pretty decent job. We recommend one of their house specials which is the GlitterBomb

My sister and I spent 2 nights here in August on a business trip. On arrival we were immediately upgraded to a beautiful suite. The hotel had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible, from the complimentary fruit, the fabulous top quality Ren skin and body care, to the fluffy bathrobes and slippers. Breakfast was plentiful... More

Have stayed at the Velvet a few times over the years. In between we've tried some other hotels, particularly the new ones. But has to be said it is the Velvet that we come back to because it is just so lovely. All the staff couldn't be friendlier or more welcoming. The rooms are all different - no corporate branding...
