    The hotel is overtly located in the gay part of town so for entertainment value it was first class, the pub next door was called Queer so not much left to the imagination, drop the C from the street name and it sums it up, top class venue

    Only that the weather was hot and the air con did not work very well in the room but the bar was arctic, but apart from that it was good

    Absolutely everything.

    I had the Penthouse suit and it was very hot. To be fair though, it was an exceptionally warm day and I had air conditioning so it was fine in the end.

    loved the service and the feeling of oppulance, the staff were fabulous i left my camera in the room, it was retrieved for me and posted back prompty by registered post, i loved the design of the place but didn't feel it was about design but being fun, and relaxed

    the air conditioning did not bring the temperature down to a comfortable level we were too hot to remain in our room for long. the concierce said it sounded faulty and would have it checked out ( room 22) .the walls were paper thin which for a hotel of this quality and location! is not a good thing unless you are a voyer!!!

    the room we were given was fantastic as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful and within walkiin distance of the city centre so it was the ideal location.

    Great location in the centre of a vibrant area with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. The room was lovely with lots of unique touches, from the decor to the led lights that came on automatically when you walked in the bathroom.

    Absolutely beautiful luxurious room (loved the balcony), attention to detail from polite and welcoming staff, and room service food was also excellent.

    Only a small thing -the noise from Canal St on a Saturday night is considerable, but expected!

    Large, stylishly decorated rooms. Lots of nice extras like a tray of beverage condiments and cookies with the turndown service and your own rubber ducky. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    The hotel itself is fantastic, the location is interesting so that even during the day you need to call the hotel reception so they would open the front door for you.

    The best thing in this hotel is its decoraion and its location near the Piccadilly station

    I did not like the noise coming from the room beside my room. When the occupier in the room next to me cough, I hear his voice very clearly. This also applies to the noise from the Bar. Although this might only affect the room that is very close to the bar and the other rooms are quiet. Also, this hotel located near a bar called gays which these people gathered there.

  • Older travelers

    Well deserved reputation for excellent service and stunning rooms. Restaurant and bar prices reasonable. Food excellent. Friendly and very attentive owners and staff. Over the years we've stayed in most Manchester hotels but the Velvet is our favourite. What makes it stand out is the owners, who make you feel like special guests. We stayed in a room with a Balcony King room overlooking Canal St and could relax and watch the happy revellers below. Note: with the windows closed the noise was minimal. Well done Mark and Louise. P.S. The sheep was a wonderful touch !!

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The staff are very helpful freindly and proffesional. Our room was one of the nicest I have stayed in with a fun sense of design. Its location is superb right in Canal street and they have tried to keep the rooms quiet with significant efforts to sound proof windows etc. Excellent I would definitely stay there again
