Nice rooms but let down with no communal space.
Good service and hotel rooms, I would not return due to the lack of communal space, there is not restaurant for breakfast and your food is continental and left in a bag outside of your bedroom door in the morning. There is no where to sit down for a coffee with colleagues and chat or do some work, you have to stay in your bedroom. Its a shame because the staff are very friendly, the rooms are good but the lack of space means I would not return for work.

Unbelievable
Wow! What a fantastic trip! One of the best hotel stays we have had - the room was divine, large space, comfy bed and perfect bathroom. The hotels own bar and restaurant were divine and the staff that worked there were wonderful - helpful and attentive to absolutely everything. It was a birthday trip and I paid for the romance package which was was worth it, the hotel pulled out all the stops with decorating the room with roses and balloons. A truly memorable experience and we will definitely be recommending Velvet to our friends and family. Thank you!

Great find in the Gay Village
The hotel is in a great location near the canal in the heart of the Gay Village. It’s a beautiful building. The decor is lovely. Wonderful to have fresh milk in the mini bar. Bathroom very clean and modern. Nice L’Occitane toiletries and plenty of big fluffy white towels. Continental breakfast served in little bags outside our door which was a nice touch. The only negative I can find is that the pillows were really hard and uncomfortable, but we’d definitely stay here again. All the staff were lovely, in the hotel, bar and brasserie. The bar was really nice and lively, we had drinks there on both the Friday and Saturday evenings. It was a safe place for women to sit and have a drink too without being hassled or feeling intimidated. We ate in the Brasserie on the Saturday evening and the food was nice, staff were lovely and it was a very relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.

Great location. But be aware- that comes with the noise that is Manchester central at night. Regardless, accommodations were lovely and unique, front desk staff incredibly helpful, and the bed was super comfy.
