Great hotel. Like stepping back into the middle ages...the building was very old and the hotel was just inside the city wall and a short walk to the Castle. Very quaint. The Restaurant was amazing, so naturally, we ate all of our meals there.

The rooms had been remodeled and the bed was very comfy. The only problem we had was that we were right above the pub and it was very noisy until very late at night. The next time we go, we will book a room on the other side of the hotel.

I would highly recommend this hotel as it offers a unique experience.
Thank John M

We arrived and were lucky that a guest let us in to the almost full car park. Reception was brusque - I asked about breakfast and was told to read the room card!

However our room was great and had an excellent shower and a working heated towel rail! We were placed in Black Jack’s - a House across the courtyard which is quieter than the main inn. The place is very busy but the staff fitted us in for dinner at the time we wished and the food was excellent. The portions are huge!

Being in Wales we both chose the lamb shank and it was delicious. Breakfast was excellent too - the”small Welsh Breakfast” was huge! I wouldn’t manage the large one.

Check out was very smooth and friendly.
Thank David B

Any time I find myself close to Caernarfon, the Black Boy is a must. We took our group there in October and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. This time we were housed in "Ti Dre" their annex just around the corner from the Inn. (Just a very tiny and almost insignificant inconvenience if it is raining). The rooms at Ti Dre were luxurious and great care was taken to ensure security (nice touch). The Inn is still THE best watering Hole in Caernarfon and if you want to eat there, make an early reservation. Apart from the great service provided, the Inn is perfectly located to the town center and full of history. Steps away from the largest castle in Wales build by King Edward I. Well worth a visit, Don't hesitate booking your room here, you will not regret it a bit.

About
Description
The Black Boy Inn is a listed building which is situated in the historic town walls of the Royal Borough of Caernarfon. The Inn is within easy walking distance to the town centre, and the famous More 13th-century Castle. An old Inn dating back to 1522 and with its wooden paneling, low ceilings, and thick wooden support beams generates a cosy 'Olde Worlde' Welsh atmosphere. The Black Boy is a very busy Inn; please do not expect it to be a slow laid back hotel. It is in the centre of the tourist hub of North Wales and long wait times can be norm in middle of summer. Come and visit us in the winter season for a more laid back feeling.We now also have Black Jacks, which is another renovated building in courtyard, at rear of Inn .Black Jacks is away from the hustle of the main Inn . All suites have small kitchen area.No lift in building.Some Ground floor rooms are easy access with walk in showers , 1st floor variety of rooms as is 2nd floor.We offer 24 hour staff attendance. When you stay in any country you must wish to stay in somewhere that reflects that country ,we certainly do majority of our staff are welsh speaking and so are the owners .Meal timesSunday to Thursday: Noon until 9.00P.M. Friday and Saturday. Noon until 9.30P.M.Table reservations can be made via reception up to 6.30P.M. Table allocation after 6.30.Pm. Will be made on availability. Waiting times can vary and an indication of any delay will be conveyed to you. To arrange a table reservation (up to 6.30P.M.)In peak season we cannot accept table bookings at all due to the volume of trade Less
