“Excellent stay”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Stayed here on 20th-22nd november and stayed in room 31 ,parking in chorlton street car park was less than 5 mins from the hotel and was discounted when we left at reception, room was clean spacious and tastefully decorated, the welcome tray was a great touch as we had driven for 4 hours , the centre of manchester was only a 10 minute walk away so location was excellent and also close to china town, i will certainly be back ,keep it up Velvet !!!

Just can't describe how amazing this hotel is! Super stylish, clean, well-run and has great facilities. We stayed there last weekend and it definitely made our time together a memorable one. Our room was lovely and clean and the bed was so comfortable, I want one!

We stayed here on Sunday 17th-18th. The design of the hotel is nice, and very clean throughout. Reception staff were helpful and very polite. Complimentary tea/coffee, biscuits and fruits were brought to the room, which is a nice touch. The bathroom was well stocked and very clean.

However....

We went out fro the evening and returned around 9.30-10 pm hoping to relax in the room. I have no idea what was going on in the room above but throughout the night, all we could hear was the electric windows opening and closing, loud music (I assume from the iPod dock....), running from one part of the room to another and generally a disturbance. I think I managed around 2 hours sleep in all. I had to leave the TV on in my own room just to mask the noise. Not conducive with a relaxing evening!

I would say that Velvet is a nice hotel, it is extremely difficult to park nearby and if you are carrying bags it is at least a 10 minute walk (to an expensive car park!). I have stayed in Manchester many times and I have experienced better hotels. I think it would be beneficial for the hotel to look into soundproofing. I would not rush back to the hotel based on my experience.....

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Velvet hotel at the weekend just gone (15-17 Nov 13), its not the first time i have stayed here- it seems to get better and better!
we stayed in room no.31, it was perfect, amazingly decorated (including a double shower!) and fully equipped with everything we needed.
Upon arrival you are give a complimentary welcome tray including biscuits, tea and coffee and fresh milk which was a lovely touch and just what we needed after checking in fairly late on the friday evening.
The food at the restaurant was really lovely and we was very quick to be served.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this hotel and i will hopefully be returning again soon!

We had the balcony room with the huge bath and it was absolutely beautiful. I have a bit of a thing for good design details and the room didn't disappoint at all. I loved the complementary biscuits and ice and lemon and lime for our pre-night out drinks (although it did rather encourage us to empty the mini-bar). We had no problem with noise although we were back very late.

Really nice, clean rooms. Comfy bed and high spec finishes throughout.
Staff very accommodating as we were slightly 'diva'ish in our request to move rooms because the wallpaper scared us! Silly I know. The man on reception was more than professional and patient with us (I probably wouldn't have been!) moving us to another room and checking we liked the wallpaper :)
Next time we're in Manchester we'll definitely be staying here
Thank you.

Just an amazing hotel. Comfortable, fully equipped with everything you need, fruit bowl and welcome tray on arrival and - most important - a really warm and friendly welcome at the front desk, replicated by everyone from bar to restaurant to housekeeping. Plus, it's as central as you're going to get in Manchester. Faultless. Stay here!

Room Tip: Spoil yourself and go for one of the duplex penthouses
