We visited the Wynnstay this evening for a family meal. The surroundings were cosy and welcoming with friendly staff . There was a great selection to choose from and each meal was delicious with lovely accompanying vegetables. We chose a meal from the children's menu too and it was a well prepared, good sized portion. Our desserts were excellent and... More

Have spent several days in Machynlleth with my team and the Wynnstay always comes up with the goods. The bedrooms are exceptional, with superior bathrooms and baths big enough for Usain Bolt to get up a lather.

The restaurant food has always been excellent here, expect something really good and served in a lovely old dining room. I love the open fires, having a drink in the lounge and exploring the menu, with many local food items.

We decided to go for a treat on our last day of our holiday. Read a few reviews so was looking forward to it. First of all, the restaurant was very quiet with no atmosphere. Complete silence - just the scraping of cutlery! Secondly, the waitress could not speak English so had to go and get someone else when she... More

We are sorry you didn't like it. Usually we have loads of atmosphere. The waitress in question does speak English but not too well, she has been with us just a few weeks. It is critical to have the correct potatoes for mash and also they do take time. We had lovely new Pembrokeshire Pearls and home made chips. Our... More

Could do with raising the hot water temperature by a couple of degrees.Comfy room but noisy as it faced onto the street. Wifi only available downstairs

Thank you for your comments. We have finally had the plumber double our hot water capacity. WiFi is available in most of the rooms but some are still presenting a challenge (very old, thick, stone walls) and our IT expert is working to resolve this. We now have a front door key with every room key More

A few weeks ago we stayed overnight at the Wynnstay in-between a couple of mountain climbs. We had a three-course meal after a long day up and down Cadair Idris and the food was incredible. Top restaurant standard, interesting menu, and to top it off, very nice knowledgeable staff. Definitely on the pricey side, especially considering the area pretty much... More

Thank you for this. We are far from being the most expensive hotel in this area. We believe in paying our staff a decent wage, above the minimum and utilities cost here as they do anywhere. There was a time when wages were very low, which was hardly fair. We only took over two months ago and are doing all... More

We'd been turned away by Plas Dolguog because they'd double booked us. Luckily, the lovely staff at Wynnstay came to the rescue. We had a lovely big room – and were upgraded after hearing our terrible story about the unhelpful staff at Plas Dolguog Hotel! The evening meal and breakfast were absolutely fantastic – and we had a particularly nice... More

The pizza's were great and would recommend . However not much choice of drinks and the place could do with a good make over as tables and chairs look like they belong in a greasy spoon and slate floor gives a cold feel to the place . As for the car park , this is a real mess and needs... More

Thank you for your comments. Sheila and I have only very recently take over The Wynnstay from the receivers. We have embarked on a program of renovation and refreshment. We are having work done to the cellar of the Pizzeria to offer more drinks - draught lager, bitter and cider and single state wines on tap. Sorry you don't like... More

Just stopped in for lunch today - didn't look very appealing from the outside and I actually only went in because the pub around the corner was too busy with queues at the bar. Good real ale and interesting menu and staff very attentive and friendly. Barman wasn't really "on the ball" and was a bit clever for his own... More

Thank you for your comments. We have only very recently taken over and are still getting everything order - which includes tidying up the exterior. However, we feel that the inside is more important to get right first. There is so much to do but we are on our way. Charles & Sheila More

Called here in mid-Jan to find signs saying "closed until further notice". That was a shame as it was a good stop on the long journey north to south or vice versa. Its now reopened and we managed to get a table calling on speck in the pizzeria on a Friday night. Apart from us being happy that it was... More
