We enjoyed a few beers here, before enjoying a meal inside. Both were excellent, with local ales and meals available. The staff were also very relaxed and friendly. Would definitely go back the next time we're in Caernarfon

Food great, rooms great but the communication and service need improving. Example can we have another bottle of this win, different one arrives" "poached egg please, fried arrives" really couldn't understand what went wrong between table and kitchen but it happened several times. Staff were pleasant but disengaged with what they were trying to achieve. Disappointed really.

My wife and I stayed in room 102 , a very comfortable room with wood beams in the ceiling.. The inn is just inside the walls of Caernarfon and goes back I believe to 1522. It is a great place to eat well priced meals or just while away the time in the pub.

Room 102 is the closest to the stairs as well , but may not be everyones cup of tea due to movement of people . This Inn is the real deal though please come back again. More

We booked one night here after reading Trip Advisor. It really is the only place with character to stay here and jolly convenient for the only two attactions, the castle and the railway. We were shoehorned into a room so far from the front door that we used the fire escape. The dinner menu is varied and good value and... More

I stayed here on a Saturday night and was warned by my cab driver that it would probably be a noisy evening. However, I had a wonderful room in the back "Black jack" section - great bed, clean, fluffy towels, and I slept like a baby. Very welcoming staff and breakfast was excellent also. Would stay here again in a... More

Ate here twice during our stay.The welcome by the gentleman host was fantastic and he soon found us a table. The food was very good and great value for money-the Welsh Pie was particularly tasty. However,at 9.15 pm we were waiting to be asked if we wanted desserts and were offered coffees-it was obvious they were keen to stop serving... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Black Boy Inn. We booked at their second facility Ty Dre which is just around the corner from the Inn. Unfortunately, the room we were assigned was on the top floor with no lift. My wife has a medical condition which makes climbing stairs very difficult. When we returned to reception they... More
