Just got back from Velvet today. We had a fantastic 2 day stay. Lovely staff, very attentive.
Really comfortable and clean room, slept really soundly. Well stocked bathroom with high quality toiletries, fresh towels. The bathroom has automatic blue lights which come on when you walk in so you can see where you're going easily and not wake up fully like you would if you put the main light on - nice feature, wish we had it at home!
Great location. We live in Manchester anyway, so found it easy to get around. Canal Street has loads of great bars but we didn't experience them on this occasion as wanted to rest after the wedding. The hotel is 5 mins from Piccadilly train station, bus station, coach station, loads to see and do close by.
Well-stocked minibar and reasonably priced (we don't have a lot of money so this was welcome). Clubbing package is cheaper as it's on the first floor where it is noisier than other rooms, but, we had no problems getting to sleep as the bar downstairs closes around 12.30pm so it was nice and quiet.
Breakfast was included with the package and was really good both days.
Very good value for money, especially this package where you get a free bottle of bubbly. Excellent communication between hotel staff eg. Mohammed (night receptionist) dealt with us when we arrived and made a note to say we'd have bubbly the next night as we were too tired to have it when we arrived late. Also, more crucially, our laptop broke with all our music on it at the wedding reception, so they let us send a relative (with permission) to pick up our iPod to save the day with the music.
Liked best - staff
Liked least - felt sad to leave! Will definitely be coming back, maybe for our one year anniversary!
Thank you so much,
Laura and Steve x
