Love this hotel! Exquisite rooms, fantastic service, warm welcome, lovely staff. Stayed 2 nights on a clubbers package but bar noise was minimal. So much better than a faceless chain hotel. Lovely touches, everything thought of. Breakfast was gorgeous. Have seen other reviews about noise and yes you could hear talking etc but it's a hotel - nothing that disturbed or detracted. Would definitely recommend and we are looking forward to going again. Thank you Velvet for a fabulous weekend.

A nice enough hotel, but pricey for what you get. The rooms were very nice, but it was possible to hear the people next door and the TV programme they were watching, as well as the staff on the reception desk talking. For the price charged, breakfast should be included. Close to all central Manchester attractions, and the station.

Stayed in the penthouse room and all I can as is wow. Beautiful room and the staff were lovely.
Everything well appointed and lovely split level. Lovely and clean.
Will definitely be staying again as it is in a great location and I have stayed in quite a few different Manchester hotels but this one is very unique and special.

Great location,lovely decor and ambience....touchs as sweets in your room...tea/coofee/and cookies brought on a tray on arrival.Staff friendly and hardworking. Food ..well breakfast was amazing eggs benedict,,but the dinner mains were poor and as they ran out of mint..no mojitos..!
But the biggy is the noisy,,very noisy air con...drove us scatty...so opened the window.Reported it to staff and overheard others doing the same who got the same reply"thats just how all our airon works ! Well get it sorted and we will return...and hopefully get a nights sleep.!

Room Tip: all rooms are indivdually themed and are lovely.But bring earplugs until they fix the aircon

We cannot think of any thing that could be improved on. Service excellent - suitcase placed in room for us and nice touch of quick guide to room and complimentary drinks tray and turn down service, the room(22) medium in size was really well appointed and individual with everything you could want. Everywhere spotless. We have stayed in quite a few hotels and must say this one beats most on all counts. We had a bit of a pain trying to park but the charity run was on so most streets were closed but that's not the fault of the hotel. Highly recommended.

This was a superb find of an anniversary get away for me and my girlfriend.
I was a little over cautious at first as some of the pictures don't actually do the rooms justice and they seem small and dark, but as the deluxe room we were given was massive and the bathroom was equally as big (hence why it probably asked to rate the swimming pool).
The staff were excellent, and nothing was too much for them.
We picked this hotel as actually living in Manchester we wanted a central location, so we could actually do Manchester as tourists, everything was fantastic.
This hotel was everything we wanted and more.

We have stayed at the Velvet before, and we have always had an amazing stay. We had the opportunity to upgrade to the Penthouse suite due to a last minute cancellation. With no regrets to upgrade, it was beautifully stylish and modern. The suite was outstandingly clean and comfortable. Thank you Louise for the warm welcome and our upgrade.
