We have been welcoming travellers for centuries, and would love to add you to that growing list, so book now to avoid disappointment!!!

Called in for food on Sunday, walked in and asked for a table for two. Got snapped at asking “Have you booked?”, we apologised, and said sorry no, the lady did not reply, just turned round, picked up two menus, put them on a table and walked off. I squeezed into the far side of the table, pushing the screen onto the table where people were eating, making a friendly joke with the lovely family. The lady came over, and I asked if this was the only food available as I didn’t feel I could eat a full Sunday lunch, especially at one course being £11.95, but was told abruptly “ yes”, so I then asked what the small print on the bottom of the menu was, It was a £1.50 surcharge PER PERSON, as they now have to sanitise everywhere!!!! I said we were out of there, did they not clean before covid?? To cash in on this situation is horrendous in my book, so a family of 4 they will pay a £6 cleaning fee!!!! Finally on entering, we were not asked our details for track and trace, double standards, absolute disgrace. We live locally, and will never step through this door again or recommend. Beware

We stayed here for 1 night whilst walking the Welsh coast path. The hotel in general could have done with a bit more heat in it as the restaurant area was a bit chilly! Our room did have an electric heater in so not as bad! The room was quite tired and in desperate need of updating rather than trying to cover up or patch the defects! The room was very basic and average. However we have to say that the food in the restaurant was excellent! Very tasty and well presented. If the heating was on it would have been a great dining experience! Staff were all very friendly!

Sorry we got caught out by the sudden cold. We do not put on the central heating during the day to heat the entire building but there are heaters in all the bedrooms. We have log fires and stoves to heat the public areas on the ground floor. They are now lit every day.

A locked bike store out back was great - and the number of bikes there showed that this is a popular hotel for bikers (they were mostly mountain bikes given the area). Covid is taken seriously here with masks, social distancing, toiletries, tea and coffee etc are given to you in a paper bag at reception. Welcome was friendly, room was clean, shower was great. Breakfast was served efficiently and was very good. All in all - good stay

A one night stay at the Wynnstay was as good as ever. Comfortable single room and excellent dinner outside in the courtyard. Well set up for the new normal with plenty of space when needed. Very happy to see them back

We stayed 1 x night...2 elderly, 1 x patient daughter and a Westie dog! Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. Lovely old Inn full of character and charm. Breakfast was a delight...tasty and cooked beautifully. Our waitress was funny, helpful and efficient. We found the rooms clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Dog friendly everywhere, wonderful atmosphere - Would definitely stay again. Thank you lovely Wynnstay...x
