Went with friends on a rather bleak evening between Christmas and New Year. We were made welcome and enjoyed the Cader Gold real ale in a pleasant atmosphere. Varied menu and the food was pretty good. A solid 3 star.

We stayed the night there and entertained our family to dinner at the hotel. The hotel reopened recently after being closed. The general ambience was lovely though to sustain high end and attract business customers away from the country house hotels it really could use an expensive refurbishment programme. That said everything worked, and for the record the famous Machynlleth... More

Ate out with my father in September 2016. Lovely atmosphere, food and service. Fresh bread brought once ordered. Kids menu is spot on. Really enjoy the side vegetables which come with the meal. The Cwrw Cader (locally brewed ale) is to die for, and I don't usually drink ale so that is saying something. Thanks for breathing life back into... More

The hotel is old and very historic, but the food was fantastic. A drink in the lounge was a great start to the evening. Then the food was top drawer, with very good staff.

This is a lovely old hotel on the high street whose owners, Charles & Sheila, ran it for many years and then moved to Italy. However, on hearing that Wynnstay had closed earlier this year, they returned and are breathing new life into it. We were initially drawn in by the candlelit exterior which was a pleasurable contrast to the... More

We stayed here for three nights, during the Machynlleth (music) festival, and also ate here during our visit. The food was good, although the soup had rather more salt in it, than is our taste. There is a wide choice of Italian wines, including several very reasonable house wines, available by the (litre) carafe.

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.
