Upon arriving at the hotel around 7pm we entered our room and quickly realised that the heating wasn't on, given the fact it was around 5c outside we presumed it would be on. So I mentioned it and asked if there was a problem with the heating they assured me it was fine and would now warm up. Great. So...

I really enjoyed all of my stays here. I've stayed twice. The room decor is incredible, very well thought out and creative. It doesn't get 5 starts purely because on the second time I stayed, the sun was BEAMING through the a gap in the blinds/curtain. It wouldn't stop me from staying again & I do recommend. I also recommended...

The team at the hotel could not have been more friendly or lovely. We were upgraded on arrival because we had booked direct and they obviously liked the look of us! Such a personal service - tea tray brought to the rooms with fresh milk, warm advice about getting around the city and a genuine desire by the staff to...

My partner and I went up to Manchester to see Elbow and stayed at the Velvet Hotel. It was in a great location for a few drinks after the concert. The room was quirky but very luxurious and spotlessly clean. The staff are helpful without being overbearing. And they assisted us very efficiently when we needed to travel to the...

I have worked in 5 star hotels in London and the Velvet is a wonderful hotel who's friendly and genuine service outshines some of Londons top 5 star hotels. The room I stayed in reminded me of the wonderful quintessential Parisian loft. It was clean and well maintained. The restaurant is quaint with really good food and excellent service. This...

What a cool place to stay! The wow factor begins on entry, the decor and design are fabulous darling. The welcome is warm, the rooms are AMAZING, each room is individual, I now want to stay enough times to see each one. They have paid attention to detail throughout so every touch point is elevated to something special, True to...

“Beautiful rooms, great staff”
 of 5 bubbles TracyM186, 24 Mar 2017 | Read review
“The penthouse suites are fantastic and great if you wanted to do some corporate entertainment as the living area is well set out for pre event drinks for at least 8 people. With the bedrooms on the mezzanine you had to be a bit careful not to bump your head on some of the beams but this didn't detract from the ambience or feel of the hotel and our stay. We loved it and it was me and my parents - different age groups and all very happy with the attention and service we received. ”
