We stayed Sunday and Monday nights. WONDERFUL in all respects - accommodation, welcome, food, ambience and personal attention. Dylan in the restaurant and big Gary behind the bar make you feel special. If you want a unique and quaint place to stay and eat heartily, then this Black Boy Inn cannot be bettered. FANTASTIC value! Best Wishes Jack & Annette... More

Reluctant to share this but could this be the coziest hotel experience in Wales/UK!!!Hidden within the walls of Caernarfon Castle the Black Boy provides its own feeling of sanctuary from behind its historic walls,fear not the staff extended the kind of friendly welcome usual reserved for family members.We stayed in the town house which is 100m away,collecting our electronic key...

It has to be the best place to eat and stay in Wales. Stayed in Black Jacks this time and had a lovely view of the Menai Straights. Parking was easy too with the hotel carpark and loads more parking with the hotel issued parking permit for the carpark below the castle, which was a great point to start exploring... More

We booked a 1 night stay and really enjoyed our time here with the room reasonably priced with breakfast included. The hotel is situated within the walled area of the town and the castle is within a 2 minute walk. The history of the hotel is very old and this needs to be taken into account when staying at this...

Your review has made me think why customers in the Black Boy are so polite.As the Inn is full of small passage i think this may answer this . As everyone has to say hello when meeting someone when travelling through the Inn.Thank you very much for the review. More

We stayed for one night as a birthday treat for my wife in this lovely old pub right inside the Castle walls. The location couldn't be any better with free parking, and being right in the centre of town with everything within easy walking distance. Our top floor room was one of the large family rooms across the courtyard at... More

We got a great deal for this hotel on Amazon deals. Price included 2 nights with breakfast and evening meal. Room was tastefully decorated with a large TV that was positioned so it could be seen (Its amazing how many hotels have a TV in the room but you cannot actually see it without performing gymnastics). Not that we had... More

Thank you for the review .As regards the amazon deal there is quite a bit of small wording in the amazon deal which is shown on the amazon web site as it is standard on their deals.We only offer these in the first 3 months of the year.Please come back soon. More
