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. 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.

Stayed for two nights. Stay was oki-ish-I-suppose, but not good if you want to sleep at night. Booked the four poster room. Room was a double room with a huge, extra huge King Size four poster crammed into it, so not much room for anything else. Bed was uneven; left side was

We are looking at your comments this morning and will check the mattress. As all beds have been replaced in the last year. As regards space I am afraid the rooms in the old Inn are smaller due to the age of the building.If you do return please book one of the rooms in the Black Jacks which are larger rooms.

Recommended as a hostelry, and I gather it is fine as a hotel although I've never stayed. The Welsh banter in the bars is worth going for, and the food is always good and tasty. In the summer, plenty of al fresco eating on the street, and a safe playground across the

This was our third visit staying at the Black Boy Inn and yet again our experience could not have been more perfect. A first for us was a meal in the restaurant on Valentines night. The service and food could not be faulted, the second night we ate in the bar using the loyalty

"Dont pay extra for a 4 poster room at front. The refrigeration, humming, wierd noise will keep you awake."
"Down stairs rooms are bigger and if you need room to move around I think they are the best"
"Book early"
"We liked room 21."
"Be sure and book a room that is not on the front right under the pub..."
