Myself and my partner have visited Velvet restaurant often....sometimes the food is amazing for pub grub. Their soups and paninis are lovely together on a frosty, grim day. The staff however there are mixed. One lady looks cheerful but it's almost impossible to get her to smile! I can't work out whether she hates her job or us! Presentation wise...

This is a fantastic boutique hotel which always gives you a warm welcome. Great individually decorated rooms, great cocktails in the bar and the restaurant is fabulous too. I'd like to give a 5* but little things let it down this trip such as missing towels but it's a solid 4.5 and still my go to place in Manchester.

A nice quality hotel in the centre of Manchester. Really enjoyed my stay here. Good room with good facilities. Some front street rooms do suffer from noise, but that's only to be expected due to the surrounding nightlife. The stay was good. Reception and restaurant staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast was vey tasty. Would recommend this hotel. Thank...

Large room. Staff was very attentive and courteous. Furniture was old and scratched up though. Amazing location! All in all its a great place to stay. The 4 stars instead of 5 is because I still feel it's overpriced for what you get in comparison to other hotels in proximity.

This hotel is great. Right in the heart of the city but not your usual bland business box. All of the rooms are individual and quirky. Velvet is on Canal Street - Manchester's gay epicenter - but you don't have to be gay to stay there. My group of three straight friends received an extremely friendly and informative welcome from...

Everything about this place was amazing. The room was outstanding and food was to die for. The staff at the hotel where the most helpful I have found anywhere.

Superb location. Exceptional staff. Quality rooms. World class service. Of the hundreds of hotels we have staying in, this one ranks amounts the best. Not overly priced for such quality in a prime location right in the heart of the nightlife. Best of both, a great nights sleep and action right in the doorstep. Highly recommended.

This is the second time I've visited (the first being 3 years ago) and if anyone ever asks about a quality hotel I've always pointed them in the direction of Velvet. The staff are always friendly and immediately saw us to our room before providing a welcome basket of biscuits, sugar, milk and refreshments. Room service is provided and an...
