I recently stayed 3 nights at the Seashell with my husband and 3-year-old daughter. We chose to stay in Barmouth because it was cheaper than Harlech or Porthmadog, but having visited a few towns in the area I think Barmouth was the nicest place to stay.
The Seashell is right on the promenade, just across the street from sand dunes and the clean, sandy beach. There is a grocery store about 5 minutes walk away that's open until 10pm. There are a number of restaurants in easy walking distance, and it's a short drive from Harlech and other sites on the coast. In the 3 days we spent in the area we saw Harlech castle, Portmeirion, Bryn Cader Fanr, a few ruined abbeys, and played on the beach.
Our side room on the 2nd floor (UK first floor) had a view down the street. We could see sea and hills from our two windows. The windows opened wide for good ventilation. The room had a small fridge, a closet, arm chairs, tv, and tea-making facilities, and there was room for us to set up our daughter's travel cot. There was a little noise from late-night carousers in the street, but not enough to bother us. The seagulls were pretty loud.
The bathroom was larger than many en suite bathrooms I've seen in B&Bs. I liked the shower; it was hot with good water pressure.
Breakfast was good, plenty of food was provided, the town was fun to explore. I would recommend The Seashell B&B and Barmouth itself to anyone visiting this part of Wales.
