Really enjoyed my stay at the Black Boy Inn. Our room was spacious and very clean. Staff were absolutely wonderful and catered to our every need. The Black Boy Inn made my first trip to Wales much more enjoyable. We will definitely go back!

Very impressed with the standard and quality of the accommodation. Very clean no expense spared with quality fittings and large comfortable bed. Food really good and served by friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice to suit everyone. The inn's location is very central for all the amenities In Caernafon.

The Black Boy is a traditional but skilfully updated inn with lots of atmosphere and buzz., and it is great to stay in an independent,non corporate establishment .The building is wonderfully old and with a sense of history, but rooms have been modernised with sophisticated bathrooms , efficient wi if and wide screen TVs.. Food in the restaurant was of... More

We were here back in the summer, and enjoyed the meal so much we returned with the family to enjoy another well cooked & presented meals. The staff are all great they make you feel at home. All the food is cooked fresh and is all local produce.

Our work department had a Christmas meal here yesterday evening and it was fantastic.Plenty of choice to suit everyone on the Christmas menu (turkey, fish, beef). Home-cooked food was absolutely delicious and plenty of it. Nice atmosphere (though no Christmas music!) and staff were very efficient,quick service.I highly recommend the Black Boy for a Christmas meal.

The restaurant and bar areas do get very busy in the evenings but it is worth the wait as the food was wonderful. I was pleasantly surprised at the huge range of whiskey available at the bar and I...

This is definitely my go to stay place in North Wales, very friendly staff and great welcome. If your after an ultra modern faceless hotel, The Black Boy is not for you, if you want a Inn with excellent character and very functional rooms then this is the hotel. My room (24) was massive. The bar downstairs is great and... More
