Had a lovely evening here, beautiful room with an incredible four poster bed! Very comfortable and great facilities (amazing bathroom and a kitchen!) had a good meal at the inn too (not incredible but standard pub food). Warm service. The surrounding town is very nice too.

Car parking is available in the day time for eating guests, but in the evening we use for residents only and it is chargeable. As you state loads of parking in the town but all chargeable. Thank you for the review.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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.
