Spent three nights and had a very enjoyable stay. Beryl and Barry were excellent hosts full of local knowledge and entertaining chat. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The breakfast was excellent and catered for all needs. The town centre was just a stroll away and Beryl was full of information on where to eat and other locations to visit. Recommend the Gwynfa for a stay and will definitely be revisiting.

We spent 3 nights at Gwynfa and had a very enjoyable time. Hosts Beryl and Barry were very welcoming and full of entertaining chat at breakfast. Beryl happy to give welsh pronunciation lessons which were very much needed and recommended places to go and things to see. The breakfast was excellent and set us up each day before heading out. No lunch necessary. The room was very clean and well stocked with everything you would expect and more. After a long day climbing Snowden it was great having access to ibuprofen in the room as the legs ached. There is a very comfortable lounge available to guests with a big TV, ideal for watching the Euro semi-finals. The location of the B&B was excellent. It was less then 5 mins to the main street of Porthmadog and there was a supermarket across the road.

I very highly recommend this place.Suituated on a main Road opposite Aldi.. A very short walk to the Town centre. We had a twin room small but very pretty. The owner gave it her own touch. The B & B only has two rooms. The other room is a large double room. Our bed was extremely comfortable. I had the best nights sleep for a very long time. I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome. It's seagull Noise when window is open. When close I did not hear them. The owner made us feel very welcome. She was such a lovely lady very chatty. Nothing was to much for her. In our room was a iron and ironing board. Hair dryer and hairstyler and tongs. Parecetomol , plasters ,etc. Tea and coffee facilities. Lovely shower . A lovely lounge room and breakfast area. A huge choice of cereals. Full English breakfast of your choice one or two items. Yogurt, fruit. A Lovely breakfast. Free parking outside private for residents only. Price of room excellent for value. I will definitely come back to this place.
