“Awesome”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We stayed here on a trip to Manchester. The staff were helpful, the room was great and very sexy :) Think our room was no15.

We had cocktails sitting next to the canal in front of the hotel. The 2for1 offer felt a bit expensive at £12 though.

The Hotel was handy for everything...a few minutes to the Northern Quarter and to the City centre.

Room Tip: Our room was 15 and was big with a fantastic huge mural on the wall, high ceiling and a full length...

Not just a standard hotel although all the good service you expect from a four star hotel were there. Ice and cookies filled up, room well cleaned, helpfull staff. Quite unique decor in a funn and unique neighbourhood. Enjoyed it. Only draw back would be the queeking ceiling, could hear the room above, quite loud.

Room Tip: Higher floors must have les novice

Standard fayre but great service & nice on a warm sunny day
Expensive for what you get, the chicken though is excellent.
Not so great inside, slightly dated & dank, deffo a sunny day destination.
Beware of the scrotes on bikes that frequent Canal st though, eyeing up your phones, handbags & wallets

Stayed here for a 40th birthday treat. The room was nice and we were treated to a glass of fizz on arrival which was a nice touch, however we didn't get a good night sleep due to the party going on in the room above us (until 4am), then in the morning we couldn't shower as a problem with the water main left our room with no water pressure. Neither of these things were the fault of the hotel but spoilt the experience nevertheless. I would also say the hotel seems overpriced given that we didn't get breakfast included or water in the room - can't help feeling there are better luxury options in Manchester

My husband took me here as a birthday treat,& as a boutique hotel I expect unique..... This hotel exceeded all expectations. Our gothic room was stunning, a beautiful big black poster bed, vintage chandeliers, exposed brick walls, a double bath.... I could just go on! I totally recommend this hidden gem, location ideal for central Manchester. The best hotel I've ever stayed in :)

I recently took my wife to stay at the Velvet Hotel for her birthday & after hours of searching Google for that perfect hotel I am so pleased I chose to stay here! When we arrived we were welcomed by the lovely, friendly staff who checked us in & kindly showed us up to our room. As soon as the bedroom door opened our eyes shot open in amazement of what awaited us inside...the room was just out if this world! A huge gothic style, boutique decor throughout & if all that wasn't enough they staff has even laid out rose petals in the shape of a heart. Wowed already we walked into the bathroom where our jaws dropped at the sight of the double bath which we immediately began to run! I honestly could go on & on writing how brilliant this hotel is but the 5 star reviews for this place Speak for themselves. If you chose to stay here you won't be disappointed!!
