Took my wife here for her birthday. We stayed in a fourth floor penthouse suite. It was an amazing room full of lovely touches. The room was very quiet even though the bar was noisy (we went for a quick dance there). All in all go here you`ll love it guaranteed.

Velvet is a relatively small boutiquey hotel on Canal street in Manchester – which is pretty central. The street itself is traffic free – but parking is available within a couple of minutes walking.

The staff were very helpful – escorting us up to our room, which had a great heated balcony (with resident full size model sheep) and four poster bed. The room was well designed – with lots of nice touches – and a large bathroom – with cool LED lights. The lady from check-in explained how everything worked – even down to how to switch the lights off over the minibar!

We didn’t eat at the restaurant – but the bar was fun – and the cocktail guys really knew what they were doing. Very friendly – clean and comfortable hotel – and well located – will certainly be back.

Popped in to the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon and decide to have the roast dinner.

So decided to have a starter along with the sunday roast – I had the mushroom on toast and it was amazing, packed with flavour.

For the roast, I opted for the beef only to be told there was only 1 portion left and so I let my friend have it (but we did go in at the very end of the lunch servicing and didn’t book!). So I had the chicken, which was almost a full roast chicken so wasn’t disappointed. It was served with lots of vegetable and I couldn’t finish it.

So the food was amazing, the service was amazing and the food was certainly excellent value for money. This is a must place to try…..i can’t wait to go back to Manchester, and this place will certainly be on the itinerary.
