“Great Stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

I stayed here for two nights as I was combining a trip to Liverpool with a shopping trip in Manchester. This is a unique hotel with lots of character and its sumptuous interior. We were lucky enough to stay in a room with the big, grand, white carved bed, it was one of the comfiest bed I've ever slept it.

As for location it was approximately a 5-10 minute walk into the city centre.

If you stay in this hotel make sure you head down into their restaurant for a meal, the food was absolutely fantastic. We were gutted we didn't eat there on both nights we were there.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back if we have another trip up North.

I travel all over the world and this hotel has the WOW factor - nothing left to chance - the eye for detail is everywhere, the room was magnificent, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was incredible and the choices in the mini bar area was exceptional, from drinks to sweets to chocolates / crisps - and a cheeky glass of champagne on arrival - PERFECT!!

The staff were really accomodating and nothing was too much trouble for anybody, the restaurant was really nice and the staff friendly and professional

Check out was swift

I would recommend this hotwel to anybody and it was that good I have booked next weekend!!

We stayed over At the velvet hotel this Saturday and was very impressed. The service was spectacular they couldn't do enough for us! The facilities in the room were marvellous the bed was extremely comfortable the only thing I would say is the decor behind the bed a large scary looking woman scowling at you , I didn't see this in any photos on the website and it wasn't something I'd ever choose .. However the rest of the decor was beautiful. We ate in the velvet restaurant it was absolutely delicious and the cocktails in the bar were also amazing . Thanks velvet we shall be returning

Stayed here on Friday night. Fantastic location close to Piccadilly and right on Canal Street. Room was stunning and the staff really helpful and professional without being pushy or in your face. The whole hotel has a really relaxed feel about it.
Bathroom was great with a lovely bath and shower and great toiletries.
Only thing that I can really grumble about is the pillows were flat and uncomfortable and the bed was two singles pushed together but that's really minor.
Would definitely recommend and will be staying here again!

Me and my partner have eaten here on a few occasions and we can honestly say the food, wine and service is excellent. The staff are non evasive, helpful and knowledgable about the menu, we tend tend to go for the 4-7 menu and you are not short changed, the house wine at £9.50 is excellent value and two courses at £15.95 you can't go wrong... People have opinions about the village being dirty.... But I can honestly say this establishment is perfect for a romantic meal, a family meal, a special occasion... But above all those who appreciate good food... Highly recommended

My boyfriend and I stayed here last night for my birthday. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the room was gorgeous (we were in room 25). The bed was really comfy, the bathroom was lovely and it was just everything we hoped for! Really can't sing their praises enough! Perfection.
