We stayed for one night on the spur of the moment. The inn is in the middle of the town so perfect for exploring. The room was small but perfect with everything provided. Bathroom was clean and again everything provided. We ate a fantastic meal. Some of the young servers need some training but nothing bad and it did add... More

We have a holiday home near Caernarvon and have been going into town for 15 years or so. We have eventually got round to trying the food in the Black Boy. Why did we wait so long?? Service was friendly, efficient in a nice cosy oldy worldy room. The food was excellent and nice big portions too. The inn is... More

A short break in Caernarfon. Lovely Inn with real coal fires in the bars. Our 4 poster bedroom was clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was here. Unfortunately we didn't eat here but viewing other peoples meals everyone seemed very happy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Large selection of breakfast options. overall a most pleasant stay.

Just spent three nights inthe black boy inn and had a superb stay. Delious food and large sized portions kept my husband happy after a long walk up snowdon. Easy parking. Friendly happy staff. This was our third visit and already looking forward to our next.

Have just returned from a 2 night stay and cannot wait to back again. The lovely Receptionist was so helpful and even took us to our room which was so welcoming & cosy. We were staying with friends and without us asking rang to let us know they had arrived. The lounge bar was very busy but service was still... More
