We were warmly greated by Charles when we arrived at the Wynnstay Hotel, we had been driving back to Chester and wanted to stop for the night. He told us the rates were from £96.00 but as he only had superior rooms left which were £135.00 per night we could stay in one for the standard rate. We were shown...

Lovely friendly staff that wanted to please in every way.. Menu was adventurous with food that couldn't match. The wine list was limited with just a handful of Italian wines.. The seafood casserole comprised of pieces of white fish cut into cubes with the skin intact and bones plus very small mussels combined into a creamy sauce with mashed potato.....

Delighted with all aspect s of our stay, especially the food. Our meal on the first evening was so good, we decided to book for the second evening. All 3 courses were first rate, I particularly enjoyed the lamb with pumpkin puree and crispy kale. Food is sourced locally we were told. The hotel is situated centrally in the town...

This is a hotel with character and charm.A lot of care has gone into furnishings and decoration and I am sure regulars will see changes every time they visit. At present, for instance they are re-building a recently discovered fireplace.There is so much to see and enjoy. It is an old building, so of course some floors creak and not...

Thank you for this review. We are having fun renovating the old building. Delighted you appreciated our food and service. Balancing the heating is an art - it does go off at night and is not in during the day as the fires downstairs do that job. But there are thermostats on all the radiators - when you return, which...

It's an Olde worlde hotel complete with creaky floorboards. We were greeted by the friendly owner and made to feel very welcome. Our bedroom was enormous, the bed clean and comfortable and the bathroom was adequate. We weren't expecting modern five star luxury so it didn't disappoint. We would stay again specifically to eat here.The menu isnt extensive but most...

Wow, thank you for this review. We glow with pride. We are not aiming to be anything more than a 3 star hotel although we are really more of an inn. The blend of warm welcome, comfy rooms, log fires, hot water, comfy beds, plush towels and great food, wine, beer - all one should expect of an inn and,...

We booked The Wynnstay via Travelzoo. We regularly visit Travelzoo offers and find their offers to be excellent on the whole. First impressions of the Wynnstay from the car park were of a rather run down and tatty exterior however on entering the welcome was warm and pleasant. We were shown to our room on the second floor which was...

Thank you for this review. Sorry if you were "put down" but we do pride ourselves on our wines. Since we import directly from vineyards in Italy, our house wines especially are far superior to the usual pub wine. Whilst New Zealand can make excellent Sauvignon Blanc, we don't see the need to ship wine all the way round the...

An older style building on the main street of Machynlleth. The car park is to the back of the hotel but accessed via an small side street. The smell of an open fire greets you in reception (colder months only!) and the rustic furniture and wood panelling are in keeping with the age of the main building. The owners are...

Thank you for this review, As you saw, we are constantly working to improve - and since you came have embarked to panel one room with old panelling reclaimed from an old chapel. We did look at installing a lift but it isn't really practical. At some point in the future we may have rooms on the ground floor.... if...
