I think Ty Pawb is a great placeAugust 3, 2018 at 2:01 am #153947
Just been alerted to the Trip advisor reviews of Ty Pawb. Bearing in mind that this has become the bible for people planning trips (in some quarters), it was worrying to note that Ty Pawb does not even make the Top 50 of visitor attractions to the town, has mustered up a mere 5 reviews, and one of them absolutely scathing.
If that was my project, every member of staff responsible for that lady’s poor experience would be gone……never to return. Worth a look
It’s quite funny that since Alun mentioned this 4 days ago – 12 positive rave reviews – mostly 5 star have suddenly popped up from nowhere. Seems a little bit forced, coordinated and non-organic. Perhaps someone from within Ty Pawb media team asking friends or on a Facebook group to post up top reviews to boost ratings. Funny how nobody could be bothered to write anything up about it in months then a light is shone onto this fact on every lurker’s favourite grapevine (these forums).
Let’s see how many more sudden top quality location reviews end up on there in the next few weeks so that they can artificially inflate their standing.August 3, 2018 at 8:17 am #153949
Matt – I fully agree with your assumption that the ‘rave’ reviews are being driven by those connected with Ty Pawb. Next thing is we will probably see large numbers of postings on Tripadvisor as someone within the Council buys the reviews which are a known fact about how this service works to boose a businesses ratings.
At a time of Social Media being the way to get the message out, how often are they Tweeting etc to keep the profile up — irrespective of what people think about the place their marketing officer should be working overtime to try and boost the profile…August 3, 2018 at 8:37 am #153950
Apparently it was very busy the other Saturday, I spoke to someone who went and they said it was all very good, but it is not sustainable to get people there every day of the week, but everyone knew that from the start didn’t they ?
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.August 3, 2018 at 9:40 am #153952
Maybe Ty Pawb is not the failure that (most) members of this forum wanted it to be.

Maybe Councillor X could it be you writing the rave reviews? I disagree with your comment that (most) members of this forum wanted it to be a failure. I did not want it to fail, but at the same time, I thought that it was money being thrown down the drain. Time will tell the real outcome. It will be interesting to read the 6 month comparison of figures against the figures published in the Fourth Street Report when they come before Scrutiny in Nov/Dec.August 3, 2018 at 11:14 am #153955
Councilor X – maybe you would like us all to meet at Ty Pawb for a coffee to give them some tradeAugust 4, 2018 at 9:16 am #153999
What has happened to the committee that was supposed to be formed from people in the community? The Council advertised for people with expertise to offer their time for free to support the management of TY Pawb- this still does not seem to have happened- is this an example of the Council not wishing to share their inner failings on this project with others.
In the Council work programme a report will be presented in September but no doubt there will be a reason why it is delayed or so watered down that it is not worth the paper it is written on.
The Council are still saying the empty units are ‘under offer’ yet that has been the case for months.August 6, 2018 at 9:02 pm #154130
Nice of Matt to reveal the power that I now appear to have at my fingertips (lol). I’m actually pleased that someone has got off their backside and posted a few positive reviews even if they are all insiders. I do actually want the place to succeed and Trip Advisor reviews are a must for places that actively seek tourists coming to a town armed with little info.
Might get around to posting a few favourable reviews of my own shop if I get the chanceAugust 7, 2018 at 9:54 pm #154176
