My partner and I have stayed in Manchester quite a few times over the last few years and always wanted to stay in Velvet Hotel but always assumed it was out of our price bracket.
That's all I can say after staying here is I don't care if I have to break the piggy bank again I will not stay anywhere else in Manchester. The room was everything I expected it to be and more as was the hotel as a whole. The attention to detail in the hotel is what makes the hotel truly special, from the high end toiletries provided in the bathrooms to simple things such as putting a summary of the weather forecast in the lifts. As mentioned by other reviewers the welcoming tea/coffee facilities provided in the room were far higher quality than I had experienced in other hotels. We had breakfast included which was really lovely and relaxed with plenty of choice.
We have eaten in the restaurant a few times and the food has always been of a high standard. The bar is well stocked and has a great range of cocktails in the menu although these are a little on the pricey side (but I understand that there is a happy hour that we managed to miss) but hey, I believe that you pay for quality and this hotel is big on quality.
Finally, what stands out for this hotel above anything else is the staff and the customer service that they provide. We were greeted every morning (and evening) with a friendly hello and nothing was ever too much for the reception staff. We will definitely stay at Velvet again.
