Having been to Mach. many, many times over the last 40 years, for some reason we had never been here. My son visited the restaurant a year or so ago and enjoyed his meal so for our 40 (somethingth) wedding anniversary we decided to book a table. Don’t try and drive in through the old coaching inn entrance, from the... More

The room was quite large with two comfortable single beds, two armchairs and a good size bathroom. The restaurant (this is in the hotel but it also has a pizzeria that we did not try) gave us lovely food from a broad and interesting menu that included things like locally sourced meat and fish, game and even pigeon. The quality... More

Quick wander around the town led us to the Wynnstay - was a little confused to see signs for pizza but called in to see if they offered Sunday lunch - Yes. We were a little early but were quickly sat down and drinks brought. Lunch was terrific - bread (homemade) was lovely, beef tender and tasty, yorkshire puds looked... More

Thank you for your kind words. I am sorry that you didn't like the cider. Our cider is not bottled but is a real cider, Happy Daze, from a very respected cider maker in South Wales - but not everything is to everyone's taste. Next time let us guide you to something else. More

Not a bad hotel, but has its down sides. being renovated during my stay, will be very good when finished. Great staff, very friendly. Beds were very uncomfortable! Rooms were great sized, comfortable and clean. Bathroom was in need of a good bleaching! I'm a cleaner so I guess im extra fussy. The breakfast are great. The evening menu was... More

Thank you for your kind words. Sheila and I only took the Wynnstay over couple of months back, it had been closed and rather suffered from neglect for a few years. We had rather a fight to save the old place and we are remedying all the faults as fast as we can. We have stopped all the leaks!!! Please... More

We just called in at the Wynnstay for lunch on the offchance today. Thought initially that we'd probably made a mistake as we were the only diners at around 1.15 - can't be much good if no-one else was there ! But no, it was a really excellent meal with mostly local produce. Good and friendly service, didn't wait long,... More

We stayed here last weekend. It is an old hotel with uneven floors etc the room are ok I understand they are upgrading bit by bit after the recent owners bought it.

This is an excellent base for a tour round mid Wales. Rooms absolutely fine and good value, lots of hot water etc, but what makes this place stand out is the excellent food and the general vibe in the public rooms on the ground floor. Excellent meals were had, with the Welsh speciality sea trout featuring prominently (in season until... More

Thank you for your kind words.

The hotel has recently been taken over by a previous owner who ran the hotel successfully for a long time. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Our room was a little dated, but discussions with the owner indicate major refurbishment in the near future. We ate in the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of our meal. The hotel... More

Thank you for these kind words. We are doing as much as we can as fast as we can. Only on 17th June did we finally complete the purchase! Pew! A lot has been achieved already: many new mattresses, stopped the roof leaks, doubled the hot water capacity, deep cleaning and more cleaning. We are currently installing log burning stoves... More
