Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was in town for two short days, and needed a place near the train station. I loved this hotel, and the room, and the service. I wish I had been there with friends, or for a vacation, as I don't think I took full advantage of the ambiance and room.

Visited this weekend with a friend, food was really nice and excellent service. It's also got a nicer atmosphere than the other local places and it's all pretty reasonably priced too. Definitely worth a visit :)

There is not really much to say other than excellent about velvet. I have nothing negative to say! It's in a great location and is of a high standard. The staff are all excellent and very helpful. The property is finished to an excellent standard.

A boutique hotel within 5 or 6 mins walk of Manchester Piccadilly station. Very helpful staff. Rooms are comfortable with all that you'd expect from a good quality hotel plus the extra touches that make the difference between a good stay and a great stay.

My wife and I have stayed here numerous times prior to going on holiday. The welcome is always genuine and the service second to none. The rooms can be a little noisy (depending on which one you get) but if your budget allows book a loft room for the extra space and wow factor. The restaurant serves good quality food...

I have reviewed the restaurant at Velvet before, this is the first time I have stayed at the hotel though, and hoping it won't be my last. There is no parking at Velvet, however there Is a car park literally out the back of the hotel, and the car park above the bus station that the staff recommended was good....

We spent 1 night at the velvet hotel but unfortunately the health and safety aspect of running a hotel has been massively over looked. Been from an electrical background to find damaged sockets at a child's head height where fingers could easily be inserted directly onto live connections was shocking. All the testing on the portable appliances was either out...

Location is good. It is only within 5 minutes-walk to Piccadilly Station. The staff helped us to receive some items purchased from Amazon before we check-in. It provides refreshment (milk, chocolate and lemon slice) everyday.
