Booked here for a couple of days to get away for an anniversary with my girlfriend. Tucked away in the Gay Village, it keeps itself low key but still easy to find. Entrance is very welcoming with access for those in wheelchairs around the back of the building. Owners very friendly who took us to our room. Room is boutique...

The hotel was conveniently located between the railway station and the city center; the area was quite lively. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Next time we are in Manchester we will return to Velvet.

This was our second stay at Velvet in the last year. Both visits are worth a 10/10 rating. Everything is to a high standard including the service from the staff and the attention to detail could not be faulted.

Great little place, every room different and great attention to detail from the welcome tray of tea or coffee brought to your room while you settle in to the grab and go how sausage or bacon role with drink as you check out. Comfortable rooms stylishly done and they treat returning guests really well.

The Velvet hotel in Canal Street, Manchester is well worth a visit especially for the Sparkle in the park experience. Set in the heart of Gay Village it has prime location for sitting and watching the 'Girls' walk up and down the street. I found it very pricey but worth a punt. The meals are of high standard and of...

This is a very nice boutique hotel with excellent staff, service, and rooms in a great location. The desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were provided a welcome tray of coffee/tea, milk, biscuits, etc. Our room was very nice, with dark red velvets, a king bed, a settee and interesting décor...quite romantic.
