One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Only downside.....the portions are enormous so might not want a starter! My mum and I shared the sea food platter to start, supposedly for two people but fed my aunt and friend as well. I then had the seafood pie, crammed full of beautiful local fish, prawns and cockles.....yum!!!... More

Tonight at 7.00 on a Tuesday evening the restaurant part of this Inn was full, the bar was full and they had to open another part of the hotel to feed the waiting public! It is incredible that this place is always full. We found a table when someone else finished their meal and as usual we had a too... More

In the town for the day on business, had lunch at The Black Boy and were impressed, will return. Would like to explore the castle and town properly another time and this is where I would choose to stay having read the hotel reviews here and tasted the food for myself. A lovely atmosphere, with friendly staff.

Stayed for two nights recently whilst visiting the area. We booked a room with a 4 poster in the main building and it was lovely, the bed was luxurious. There was, however, quite a lot of noise as we were in the room above the bins which were filled by staff at 8 o'clock in the morning - a little... More

Thank you for the review and so glad you enjoyed your stay .You are correct we do not take bookings after 6.00pm ,this is due to the amount of customers coming through the dorrs daily at the Inn. More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights to see the sights in and around Caernarfon. We selected this hotel because it was very old and located within the town walls, offered free parking, and had a restaurant on-site. Also, the hotel had recently been modernized. We stayed in room #52 which was reached by walking through the courtyard... More
