Our stay was Short and sweet. The reception were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Good central area. Had a life size sheep on the balcony. Not sure why? The bed was very comfortable. Air con a bit noisy

We had a wonderful 2 night stay, the staff couldn't have done more and were extremely polite and helpful. We stayed in one of the Party package rooms which I would highly recommend. Would stay again no problem.

Lovely small hotel. Clearly an old building but lots of work done to make it comfortable. Rooms 34 was surprisingly quiet. Big bath for four friends. Art work very targeted for gay village people. Location is great as Manchester is really small so you can walk anywhere in the shopping centre in 15 mins.

A well positioned, boutique hotel, close to train stations, bars and clubs. Friendly, helpful staff went a long way to make this a thoroughly enjoyable visit. Our room was a mix of decadence and visually stunning, spotlessly clean.

Velvet continues to provide a truly heavenly stay. Prepare to be welcomed back like an old friend, to be given a lovely room, with fresh tea/ coffee, milk, biscuits, ice and lemon/lime slices brought to you within minutes of your arrival. Then you can anticipate a great meal, again with attentive and friendly service, and a wonderful night's sleep before...

The bathroom was truly gorgeous with the oversized bath, that's the only positive. I paid extra for a balcony room to have the 'city view' with gorgeous pictures advertised but actually got a view of a building site with just rubbish and rubble everywhere. I am a little of a clean freak and would expect hotels with price £200+ to...
