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...

Stayed here for 1 night last week and I was very impressed. The service at both the reception and bar was excellent, the room was amazing - spacious, comfortable and beautiful. The location is also very good, although you can here the music from the nightclub next door till quite late (my only down point). would definitely return.

Very nice small hotel by the Canal. Get a room high up in the building if you visit on a summer night. It can be quit noicy on the street. Nice rooms, good breakfast and a very romantic feeling in the rooms. Good for a weekend with someone you love.

Friendly staff, very nice room, fresh milk provided for coffee, highly recommended. From the moment we arrived it was obvious this was going to be a very impressive hotel. This is our first choice for a hotel in Manchester

“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. ”
