Clean, differently themed rooms with the wow factor. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Excellent bar and restaurant. Easy access from Piccadilly Station and close to shops and entertainment. Was able to stay in the room of my choice.

Room Tip: Choose your preferred room from the website.

It's great to read your feedback, thank you. We are more than happy to pre-allocate rooms by request as they are all so different. Subject to availability we do our best to get you the one you want. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

My friend and I stayed here during Manchester Pride and wow, we were not disappointed.

We thought we would splash out on a nice hotel for once, rather than a Holiday Inn (no office caused) and although costly, we chose this hotel based on fab reviews and the fact that it was based right in the middle of the gay village! Perfect location for Pride weekend!

When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff on reception, who handed us our pride wristbands and escorted us to our penthouse room, which was an amazing duplex room and was absolutely stunning.

When we got into our room there was a pride goody bag waiting for us, which contained lovely toiletries, sweets and other bits and bobs. Furthermore we were brought a bottle of champagne by one of the guys on reception as a welcome treat (and to calm our nerves after a 6 hour car journey from London). Both the goody bag and the champers were really nice unexpected touches.

The rooms were spotlessly clean, really modern, had big comfy beds and a pristine bathroom with a lovely big bath and powerful hot shower. There were blackout blinds on the skylight windows, which meant the sun didn't disturb us in the morning. I actually really can't fault the room or hotel whatsoever!

Basically I had a really pleasant weekend staying at The Velvet Hotel and I really hope to stay at this hotel again, next time I visit Manchester.

Room Tip: Penthouse rooms are obviously that much nicer.

Had party package room with added extras such as a bath butler and upgraded welcome try and it's worth every penny. Staff are welcoming and chatty and the hotel is beautiful, the bed was massive and service is outstanding!

Wanted quite luxury few days as just got married , wasn't that luxury or quite at all due to building work opposite very loud, pent house wasn't that great just like an average hotel room but on 2 floors with no view , hotel needs work and paint , door handles loose and bathroom fittings hanging off the wall , paint chipped off walls , very over priced for what it is should be at least half what the rate is currently.
Paid for late check out and got disturbed early saying we should leave our room and when I explained we paid extra for late check out hotel reception just hung up no apologie ,wouldn't recommend to anyone wish we read reviews before we booked , never again

Velvet was above and beyond its price point! Rooms are as I said plush and posh, a real treat! Staff were welcoming especially Carl! Location was very central, just a short walk to the train station and Manchester's highlights! I highly recommend Velvet!
