About the hotel

The Black Boy Inn is a minutesÂ’ walk away from CaernarfonÂ’s famous 13th century castle; a looming, fantastical World Heritage Site. Nine hundred yards further is the starting point of the Welsh Highland Railway, offering a journey through the fabulous scenery of the Snowdonia National Park. The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon, have been offering accommodation and dining of distinction since 1522.

Situated in the heart of the Royal Borough of Caernarfon, within the medieval castle walls, the hotel has charm aplenty with its roaring open fires, oak beams and all the Welsh character that its age & location suggests. Most of our staff and working owners are welsh speaking. Our restaurant can get very busy at times and operates on a first-come first-served basis. Please arrive early as bookings cannot be taken. We are totally non-smoking throughout Black Jacks is an additional building in courtyard of the Inn, renovated to give an extra 10 rooms, 8 of which are junior suites with mini kitchens.

Great stay at a very friendly hotel

Great place to stay, the reception staff were courteous and helpful.

The room itself was huge as was the bed. Pub was very busy and lively with a great range of beers. Had an evening meal at the pub which was good with very generous portions. Breakfast was also very good.

A beautiful and charming Inn

Set inside the castle walls,the place was full of character and the room was just lovely with a modern en suite.

it was clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the breakfast was varied and very good too. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to stay here and would love to return again.
