Awful hotel, so noisy. It's nice enough through the day but despite checking prior to the stay I had a quiet room and again on check in I was over the canal and the music was so loud I may as well have been outside. On top of this at 10.50 the fire alarm went off twice which I know Is not the hotels fault but really the outside noise was terrible and I would have cancelled if I knew it was so bad. Felt I was lied to as I purposely checked this calling in advance. I stay away 2 or 3 nights every week and will never stay here again!

Dear Fiona B,

Thank you for your review of Velvet Hotel & Bar, we're sorry if you experienced some disturbance during your stay.

I would like to reiterate the conversation you had with our reception team prior to booking that we are located on Canal Street in Manchester's Gay Village, one of the most liveliest areas of the city and that external noise is to be expected over busy periods with guests in and outside enjoying themselves in the sunshine (something of a novelty here in Manchester).

Knowing our wonderful central location and operating on Canal Street for the past 22 years we are always upfront when guests are making a reservation and we would recommend any guest research the area of any hotel they plan to visit, a quick google search for Canal St or The Village will show any potential guests how popular and vibrant of an area we have.

Whilst it is annoying to guests that the fire alarm activated at the end of the day it did it's job and thankfully on this occasion a full evacuation was not necessary.

Once again Fiona B, thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.

Best Wishes,

Velvet Team

My partner and I booked in to The Velvet on the way up North.

Staff were so friendly and welcoming despite us arriving at half past midnight!

The room was immaculate, a Penthouse type of room with the bedroom on a Mezzanine floor.

There was an excellent choice of drinks in the mini bar and a good selection of snacks too.

Lovely Loccitane toiletries.

Looking forward to our return trip and we'll be booking a weekend trip soon.

Thank you guys and girls!

:)

Beautiful room. Very noisy at night but we were pre warned about this and that's why we got it at the price we did. The location is brilliant. Mini bar selection was fab. The only slight negative is that non of us could work the coffee machine in the morning. I would 100% return to this hotel.

Amazing place that is very well decorated. Friendly staff and in a good location. Breakfast could be better but many local places to substitute. Ask for the room with the blue monkeys if you want an amazing bath!
