Decided to stay here whilst away on business to try a different hotel in Manchester. I travel quite a lot for work and often stay in bland hotels that could be anywhere so it was really nice to stay somewhere with some real character. The rooms are all individually decorated and the nice touches like a tray of coffee or...

When suggested by a good friend, on the last day of work before the Christmas vacation period, for us to go for "Pizza & Prosecco", I thought, why not! It sounded like the perfect way to end the working year, and t'was the season, after all. It had been a fair few years since I last visited Velvet, which was...

Velvet Hotel and Restaurant Whilst not staying at the hotel, I visited the restaurant in the basement of the hotel having had a recommendation from a work colleague. Admittedly it wasn't so much a recommendation, more a place he knew. On arrival you go down the stairs into the basement, although there are windows into the basement at street level....

Great location to Piccadilly Station and the city centre, very friendly staff and helpful, greeted with fresh tea and biscuits on arrival. Our room had a gothic Indian vibe with black and red décor, and a Huge double bath, very clean, and did not have any problem with noise from the street below, which is the famous Canal street with...

We booked in to stay here and we're shocked at the state this hotel was in!! Grubby rooms, dirty windows... cheap furniture nothing classy about this place at all. There are lots of amazing hotels in Manchester unfortunately this is not one of them. We did receive a full refund upon complaint before swiftly booking in elsewhere, I do feel...

My boyfriend and I stayed in a Balcony King room, number 35, which was stunning. It was perfect, we loved the bath, even though it's a single we both fitted! Lovely atmosphere in the area, such a romantic hotel, no flaws! Thank you Velvet.

We'd stayed here before but hadn't been back in a while. Safe to say, we weren't disappointed on our return. I think the part that makes us keep wanting to go back is the high level of hospitality you receive from the staff. The little touches that they provide, such as the welcome tray and turning down your room at...

2nd time staying in the velvet and really like the place. The food is absolutely incredible and so is the service. The bar is nice also. We stayed in the same room as our last visit one year ago and noticed the handle on the inside of the shower door is still broken! I also think the reception area could...
