Booked the Velvet as a last minute stay in Manchester and what a pleasant surprise!!! Upon checking in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a lovely balcony room overlooking the canal. Special mention for the wallpaper in the room. Super comfy beds and biscuits & sweets in room were a nice touch. Would defo stay again

Stayed here because it was our daughter's graduation. We had a Velvet King room overlooking the canal. The bed was simply sumptuous! Great care had been taken with the standard of cleanliness and facilities in the room. Good quality linen and towels as well as thick well made curtains. On two of the hottest days of the year the air... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel almost seven years ago shortly after it opened and were really overwhelmed by the service and attention to detail shown by the staff. There are still the same wonderful small touches, for example the welcome tray, turn down service, and the mini-bar is very reasonably priced. The quality of the bed-linen is... More

Stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and it was excellent. We had the balcony king room with the oversized bath which is out of this world! Room was spacious with excellent decor, tv and ipod dock. The bed was really comfortable as was the room. There is a minibar which you have to pay extra for and is very tempting.... More

the velvet hotel was fab xxx the room was cool (not too noisy ,,,for god sake just turn ur tv up a bit an it's fine!) the staff were really friendly and helpful too. We've stayed in some classy places I.e. Gotham ,hard days night and kings in Chester and it's pretty much up there with them 👍

We always stay at this hotel as the staff are always friendly and cannot do enough to help, whatever your needs. The rooms are all different, clean and the ones I have tried are a good size. Weekday prices are very reasonable and the meals are what you would expect from a 4 star.
