Finally after 2 years of missing out we managed to book our Christmas night out at Velvet, it didn't disappoint, staff really friendly and the food was lovely. Thank you, looking forward to the next one.

2nd time staying in the velvet and really like the place. The food is absolutely incredible and so is the service. The bar is nice also. We stayed in the same room as our last visit one year ago and noticed the handle on the inside of the shower door is still broken! I also think the reception area could...

So, we stayed here the day before new year's eve and couldn't have been happier with my choice. It's a lovely boutique place right in the heart of the gay village on Canal Street. The staff whose names I just can't remember were all just too happy to help and made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived. The...

What a dream it was to stay in this hotel. Had one of the penthouse suite. Well worth the extra money. Scored loads of brownie points with the wife! Try the lovely bar in the hotel. Will definitely stay again soon. Will try the restaurant next time. A big shout out to Karl, what a great guy. Nothing to much...

Another fantastic stay at Velvet! I made an error in my booking (booked the room for a day earlier than I actually arrived!) and reception helped me sort it out over the phone with no fuss (or extra costs). We will be staying here again when we next visit Manchester!

Me and my partner stayed at the velvet hotel after travelling from Newcastle, we got there and everything seemed fine, we had to leave a £50 deposit which was fine but we should have been informed about this before the booking, or maybe it should be included in the price for the room to make things less tricky next time...

VelvetHotel, Owner at Velvet, responded to this review

Dear guest, I think it is worth addressing your comments to give a clearer picture for future guests. We require a deposit of £50 on check-in, which guests usually put on a credit (or debit) card as a pre-authorisation and which never leaves their account (unless settling for extras on check-out). If guests don’t have any funds on any cards...

I have been a frequent user of the bar, restaurant and hotel for many years now and it never fails to impress me. It bugs me that the last few reviews have all mentioned the noise and have marked The Velvet down in points just because of this. Wherever I go, I do research, this tells me a little about...
