We went to the MEN for a concert and wanted to stay in Manchester, we normally stay in a Hilton but I have to say we were really impressed by Velvet, staff very friendly, extremely clean ( I'm fussy!) very high standards. I highly recommend and we will be staying again. Thanks all

Although this hotel is in the heart of the gay district please do not let that put you off, the room I had was very spacious, clean and tidy, the bed was also very comfortable, and I enjoyed a good nights sleep. I found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly, the restaurant on the lower ground floor...

This is not only the best hotel in Manchester, it is one of the best in the UK. The rooms are beautiful, the service is first class and the food is excellent. It is worth a trip to Manchester just to stay here. I've stayed here many times for business and pleasure and I love it!

A tiny bit disappointed with my stay. Was planning a special night away from the kids and wanted a really nice/luxurious setting. I spent a lot of time researching Velvet and booked based on the great comments it was getting. For a 4 star rating I would have expected a higher standard of fixtures and fittings on the room. Although...

We had a full dining table and sofa area with a huuuuge TV. The bed area was on a mezzanine with a toilet and dressing area. There was also another TV up...

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.
