I've spent many a happy Christmas party in the Bistro and taken breakfast alone in the restaurant and can highly recommend for singles, families and travellers. The ambience is perfectly satisfying

The standard of food at the Wynnstay is truly excellent. Lots of quality local produce (including game) imaginatively treated with a real eye for quality. Cosy snug with fire or more formal dining room. The building generally looks in need of a little TLC but...More

Thank you for this review. Sadly the Wynnstay closed soon after your visit but we, as new owners, have re-opened the dear old place and standards are rising all round - especially with the food. We hope you will call in again. Charles & Sheila

We did not stay in the hotel, just ate Sunday lunch. One's choices in Machynlleth out of season on a Sunday are certainly limited, but we were here for a family gathering and famished; I chose this hotel because I used to visit Machynlleth regularly...More

The excellent chef, Gareth Johns, now also owns/runs the hotel which is old but comfortable - I've stayed here a few times and the food is always great - the cooked breakfast, with all local ingredients, is outstanding

We drop in here fairly regularly for the great value lunch - £11.95 for two courses or £14.95 for three. Alternatively, one can order from the bar menu, limited but interesting choices and always a sign, I think, that the food is actually being cooked...More

I like a thin pizza, but this was rediculous. I can only presume that it was to balance the topping, that again was very thin. Its a gas fired oven, so it wasnt a smoky taste, it was burnt, Perhaps I am spoiled by the...More

Simple but done well. Delicious freshly made pizza, friendly attentive service. We went on a Saturday night without booking and luckily got a table. However it was fairly busy and lots of tables were reserved. Nice little place, tucked away under the archway. Would definitely...More

Response from Charles D | Property representative |
Hello, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, we are dog-friendly, which means that doors can eat with their owners, so long as they are not too wet and smelly or disturb others. You may meet Jasper, our terrier, when you come.
