The town is easy to walk around. In fact like most visitors, we park our car for the day on the edge of the town, and wouldn't move it until we leave.
Conwy is a beautiful town and an excellent place to stay. It will take you about 10 minutes to walk from one side of it to the other.
Very good centre; and trains/buses
Do you mean the county of Conwy or the town of Conwy Conwy is a small town and with a car is the bigger problem
Not much room in Conwy for cars . As already mentioned leave the car on the outskirts. There is a pay and display car park near the castle and other parking around the edges. You can drive through Conwy , it's a circular route and you might be lucky getting parked in one of the streets but it's a chore you can do without .
Walking inside the walls,walking along the medieval walls and along the quayside is a great way and the only way to enjoy Conwy town
But if you mean Conwy as a county / region then that's another matter

Conwy station is a request stop and not many trains stop there but just across the river is a larger station at Llandudno Junction from where you can catch trains right along the coast and also down the Conwy Valley branch line which runs into Snowdonia.
If you're planning on using buses there are two options worth considering :-
Secondly there's the daily Red Rover ticket which costs £6.80 and which is valid on any bus (regardless of which company is running the service) in the counties of Gwynedd and Anglesey and on some services in Conwy County - https:/…Red-Rover-Tickets.aspx
The Arriva day saver is probably the best option if you're planning on travelling east from Conwy as Arriva have a near monopoly on the major routes in North East Wales but the Red Rover ticket would be better if you're travelling west from Conwy.
The Number 5, which passes through Conwy, runs every fifteen minutes and will either take you to Llandudno in the east or to Bangor in the west. From Bangor you can travel on deeper into Gwynedd (I'd recommend Caernarfon, Pwllheli and Criccieth as places to visit) or you travel on into Anglesey (where Beaumaris is the place to go). The number 5 is an Arriva service and is included in the Red Rover list so you can buy either ticket on this service.

As has been said Conwy is not a large town and is very walkable. There are also buses and trains to hep you explore the surorunding areas, if you don't feel much like driving.
It is a great place for a base and is often recommended on here.
