The place is actually in Tremadog, about a mile walk from Porthmadog. It was our first experience in an English/Welsh/Scottish BnB, and so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. After 6 more weeks of hotels, BnBs, self-caters, hostels, and campsites, I declare Ty Newydd to be . . . not bad, average, nothing spectacular, yet nothing to complain about. We had a room overlooking the main street of Tremadog, and after 8 PM the town gets very quiet. Sleeping was easy, and there were no smells. The bathroom plumbing was a little noisy. Breakfast was good and plenty. The owners have two dogs (the names of which, after having met roughly 30-40 dogs in 6 weeks, I have forgotten) that looked fierce at first but turned out to be quite affectionate (and were kept away from the guests as much as possible). If you're going to ride the Ffestiniog railway (which I highly recommend), this isn't a bad place to start.
