.. as this is now run by Blackjack ales. Much improved IMHO and whilst the last reviewer - the first for this essentially new bar - is correct in that it "only" has 6 handpumped cask ales, it also has around 12 keg ales which though pricier than cask - are worth trying. They even had a 9% Belgian triple... More

What a transformation! I went in the 'old' Smithfield plenty of times (even stayed there once) and it was what it was. Not great. Now, it has a roomier feel to it and it clean and tidy. The toilets are not up and down an awkward step (I can only speak for the gents). The beer range is is down... More

Had some great beers in here, what a selection. Tastefully refurbished and extremely friendly and helpful staff. This place really is a hidden gem. Well worth a visit. If you're visiting Manchester it's a must and another great reason for luvingvin Mqnchester. We'll be back.

Stayed at the Smithfield this month! Can I just say you get what you pay for. Clean, comfy and quirky! The hotel is above a pub, which is very cheap, with two young and very outgoing bar maids which kept us entertained at all night, very good double act! It was clear they were refurbishments were going on but this... More

A friend of mine has taken over The Smithfield Hotel so please excuse all the previous comments. They have spent the last few weeks sorting the place out and are trying really hard and many of the rooms have recently been refurbished in to en-suites - there should be new pictures on the website soon. In the meantime please visit... More

we were greeted on check in by a scruffy looking man who claimed to be the owner, who had clearly been drinking, and possibly even smoking mrajuana, as the whole bar area stank of it, we nearly walked out but given it was 7 pm on a saturday we probably would not of got a hotel anywhere else, we were...

Stayed here one night to see MUSE!! Thankfully it was just one night. Never again!!! Cash only and pay upfront. Given a code as could only get in through the back door later at night from the scruffy street. Wallpaper hanging off. Room smells of smoke. Peanuts all over the shared bathroom and hair in the sinks. The toilet in... More

I could not believe the reviews below, the owner has explained to me that, he has been sorting out the rooms one by one and was so proud and enthusiastic about what it was going to look like. One thing that was really clear was that the owner, who you see working on the place, knows the place needs a... More

What a total rip off!!! There was no mention when booking a twin room over the phone that it was cash only!!! I was told that when I got there. Then there was no ATM facility in the hotel which is actually an old pub. I then had to walk 4 blocks to find one at the bus station. I... More

Me and the wife planned to stay here for three days but could only bear 1. Seriously, it has to be the most grotty, run-down B+B in Manchester. Holes in the wall, staff incredibly rude, blocked fire exits, damp carpets and beds so lumpy sleep is virtually impossible. Rooms really small and stink of damp. I wasn't expecting 5 star... More
