An absolutely fabulous hotel, we stayed here for two nights on a trip to Manchester. The location was fantastic and we enjoyed a brilliant night in the bars and clubs around Canal Street. The hotel itself was faultless, the rooms were gorgeously designed with a range of snacks/drinks. We had breakfast included which was just what we needed to kick...

We visited the bar, adjoining the hotel.... A very unique and niche venue..... With comfortable seating and an inviting ambience...... Worthy of a visit... Not a large seating area, though this gives it a very homely and warming feel...... I now. Ramble due to the fact that this site keeps asking m et o write more

Stayed here as a birthday treat in one of the pent house rooms. The whole visit from start to finish was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and stylish. The turndown service was lovey and the duck in the bath a cute touch. We'll be back soon.

Had a fantastic one night stay at the Velvet hotel!

Excellent service, beautiful rooms, superb value; cannot fault this hotel in any way. Perfect for couples given the vibrant location and proximity to some wonderful restaurants. Easily reached by public transport but for those taking cars ample offsite car parking only a short walk away.

“From what I understand each room is decorated a bit differently. If you see one you really like when booking, just ask if it is available.”
