We were upgraded to penthouse suite - which was excellentand kept the noise levels from street to a minimum. Suite was on a split level with all facilities you would expect. Large tv. , sound system , coffee maker and well stocked mini bar. This is a fun and lively area of Manchester so at weekends you can expect lots of activity on canal street. We had breakfast and the cooked option was very good. Buffet was a bit limited- surprised a “kitchen “ didn’t have any honey. Nitpicking I know! Many thanks to Sarah (?) on reception.

Great staff, lovely room and great breakfast. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Came whilst attending a mid week gig, asked whether tickets could be printed, helped with directions and pre-ordered our breakfast

A great hotel in a fun and exciting part of the city. Very comfortable room, stylish decor and very friendly staff. Hotel dead centre of Manchester's very colourful gay scene. Lots going on so not too suitable for anyone wanting a quiet out of the way place. If you like the bustle of the city though, it's unbeatable.

Stayed here for my fiancée's birthday and picked an add-on for chocolates and petals in the room, it was beautiful! They added in some birthday balloons too which I wasn't expecting. The staff were lovely and friendly, and the rooms are amazing! The bath was huge and the balcony over looking canal st was a lovely spot to watch the city with a cup of tea, we will definitely stay again

First time stay at this place and i had a balcony room. Bed was very comfy and room size was very good for the type of building it is. Enough storage for to people and i liked the little fridge with fresh milk. All in all i would go back and i would recommend it very much.

Very convenient for city centre . Rooms, staff and breakfast were very good. Fridge well stocked including lemons, limes and a bottle of milk. A couple of extra coffee pods would be appreciated. Would stay again without hesitation.

Impressive interior design, comfortable room and bed, central location... However can be loud because it is a fun part of the city. If you seek for a quite place than you should think twice... Lovely experience though.

Good room, quiet even on a busy street. Only recommend that the mattresses be changed as they were rather hard. Duplex room, lots of space with en suite. Would recommend for location and proximity to transport and attractions.

I spent two nights at the Velvet hotel and stayed in their Penthouse room , which was on two floors. I am a regular at the hotel and every room is unique nd designed to a very high standard. Unlike mainstream hotels which are designed to be bland the Velvet is the very opposite.

We thought for our Anniversary, would stay at the Velvet Hotel for the first time. Sarah,Natalia & Keith (Night manager) were all polite, professional & really helpful. They made our stay an unforgettable experience :) Thank you so much for all you did and we look forward to staying with you again in the not so distant future ;)
