    I booked this hotel for just one night and it was quite a surprise when they made an improvement in the reservation and gave us a suite. I couldn't believe it! the room was impressive, with two floors, complete bathroom, toilet, stereo, ... The reception staff was charming. it is located 5 minutes from Manchester Picadilly train station from where trains depart to the airport and 10 minutes from the city centre. I highly recommend it.

    Our room, including the bathroom, was beautifully designed, with quality and flair. The location of the hotel was also excellent for sightseeing in the city.

    I thought the Hotel is a great boutique hotel for Manchester. It is the very opposite of a more bland business style hotel and has facilities that give a real homely feel..... As well as showing some considerable attention to detail....... It is undoubtedly excellent value for money ..... All of our 4 rooms were individual and showed considerable flair for the budget .

    The decor is the some parts is a little ott. the back of house areas , such as the room behind reception, and the laundry cupboards were rather too visible and very chaotic- they should be made more private and more tidy- particularly behind reception....

    It was the overall quality and little touches, like sachets of real coffee and a cafétiere and a choice of quality teas on the tray in the room and fresh milk in the fridge, chocolates on the pillow and ice replenished and soft music on the LCD screen at bedtime. Ren products in the bathroom, Couvoisier in the fridge! All this made me feel someone cared enough to make this hotel special. The staff were friendly and happy and well trained. The breakfasts were well executed and ample, but not opulent. Comfort and pretty good value. Q

    Comfortable, very welcoming - they brought me a pot of tea as a welcome when arriving at midnight. The facilities in the room were really good. Free wifi which was fast and with no log-in procedure. I wasn't there long but they said they had loads of free DVD's to use in the reception.

    The only slight problem was that there were three bulbs out in the bathroom. It is apparently situated in a very gay part of town but that was not a problem.

    the best thing had to be the staff. We mainly had dealings with Stuart during our stay and he couldnt have been more helpful. on the first night, we asked where we could go and he gave us free entrance passes, advice on food and entertainment and booked taxis for us. couldnt have been more helpful :) we noticed in the literature in the rooms that a babysitting service can be arranged if needed- as parents we thought this was a good point to raise in a review so that people know in advance! The hotel is in the city centre so there is loads to do, it was lovely and clean and the bath is huuuuge.

    The only issue was a lack of car park, but there is one very close to the hotel which is an ncp one.

    Excellent staff and facilities. Some very nice touches, free ice, milk, biscuits and chocs in room. Great food in restaurant which was very reasonabily priced. Rooms were quiet even though it's bang in the middle of Manchester's cool bar district.

    The hotel design was amazing, sumptuous and decadent. The turndown service was a nice touch, chocolates on the pillows, lights on low, soft music on the tv, pillows and throws moved and blinds drawn-lovely some 5*hotels don't do this as well as Velvet! Staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was beautiful. Located at the quieter end of Canal street but the area was still lively and very friendly, the hotel bar had a fantastic party atmosphere yet you could still enjoy a 'quiet' drink. (Amazing cocktails!!)

    Great customer service, for example, on arrival we were told that room we had booked may be noisy and we were upgraded us to avoid noise.

    I am a picky kind of person and I was unable to find a single thing to moan about.
