Lovely hotel in a central location, with friendly staff. I have stayed here a couple of times now (just returned from a 3 night stay) and I am impressed with the hotel. Staff: When you check in you are greeted by friendly staff and taken up to your room. Within 5-10 minutes you are brought up a welcome tray, with...

Dear guest Thanks for your comments and I’m pleased that you loved everything we do. I’m glad you noticed that we had good internet. We have just upgraded to 20Mb satellite broadband for our guests. It is still free of charge of course and it is an added bonus on top of all the complimentary extras you get if you...

We stayed at Velvet for two nights at the beginning of June. We'd gotten a great deal on one of the 'standard rooms' - that said, I don't think there's anything standard about any room at Velvet! Our room was spacious with wonderful high ceilings, open beams, chic modern decor and one of the most comfortable beds I ever slept...

We stayed for three nights in room 16 just above the bar, so a little noise from that and the sidewalk traffic was to be expected. One night there was a very loud party but a trip to the reception desk fixed that quickly. The room was lovely, very eclectic but full of great little extras, like fresh milk and...

Arrived home after a lovely 2 nite stay in room 34 of the velvet hotel, what can I say the room was stunning , a massive bath and a balcony overlooking canal street. It had a very sexy feel to it from the beginning ideal for couples looking for a break away. It's true the walls are thin and you...

Suggest you avoid room 11 or the room above it as its open vent (you can hear whispers and a lot else). Management don't seem too bothered (it's on the agenda for next monthly meeting) . Other than that it's a very nice hotel with great staff and a very good bar.

“Beautiful rooms, great staff”
 of 5 bubbles TracyM186, 24 Mar 2017 | Read review
“The penthouse suites are fantastic and great if you wanted to do some corporate entertainment as the living area is well set out for pre event drinks for at least 8 people. With the bedrooms on the mezzanine you had to be a bit careful not to bump your head on some of the beams but this didn't detract from the ambience or feel of the hotel and our stay. We loved it and it was me and my parents - different age groups and all very happy with the attention and service we received. ”
