We were recommended to stay here and were not disappointed. Staff were very attentive and food was excellent. If we were going to be picky , we could have done with somewhere to hang clothes out of sight instead of just a hanging rail in the bedroom and it was a bit noisy with bin lorries and emptying of bottles...

All the staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, however the room was a little too hot making it somewhat uncomfortable to sleep. The food was wonderful. The location is great, being within the castle wall so easy access to everything, including the castle.

Stayed at the new courtyard rooms and they were gorgeous. We stayed in 51 which had an enormous, four poster bed but the room was still spacious. We had a small kitchenette, bathroom and dressing area. Rooms was spotless, and the bed was super comfy as well as good to look at. The location couldn't be better, inside the town... More

Visited The Black Boy Inn on 25/8/15 to celebrate two 16 year olds birthdays. There were 17 of us in all. We had ordered our mains before hand. The food was delicious. I'd ordered Dwynwen's Pie with chips and veg. The pie consisted of chicken, leeks in puff pastry. It was absolutely lovely and the chips were hand cut and... More

Used hotel as a base for walking up Mount Snowden. The hotel was great, very old and quirky although the rooms were modern (hope that makes sense) the breakfast was top class and the evening meals were well priced and plentiful. The hotel Is also a pub so the bar was busy too. Would not hesitate to use again :-)

visited the Black Boy Inn 21st & 22nd August 2015 and stayed in the four poster bedroom. both, my wife and l, liked the room and the solid wood furnishings. The staff at the Inn were very friendly.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Inn.With regard to car parking sorry that it seems odd. To enable us to offer to park all vehicles free at the Inn.We need to allocate early arrivals to car park by the castle ,once the 12 allotted slots here are gone we then start filling the car park next to the Inn....

We stayed here in Feb 15. We had a room in a building behind the main property which was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly but seemed programed to instruct us on procedures from booking a table to parking and nothing else would do. I would recommend this hotel also a good location

Due to as you state the quickness of the building and position within the town walls .We do have to have a very rigid system as regards parking ,if we did not we would not have enough parking spaces for all .We at this time offer free parking which is due to our parking system.

Fantastic place. We spent three days in two different rooms... which looked more like flats, huge bed, large kitchen, a place to eat and enough room to add an extra bed for our child. And you are sleeping in the same place where you can get a great beer or have a good dinner. Prices are reasonable.
