Stayed one night friendly witty bar staff, excellent hand pulled ales. Real coal fires just what was needed on a bitterly cold night. Ate in the bar with a work colleague, both had fish one had salmon and the other had the loin of cod, rally tasty flaky and lots of it. Definitely recommended. Will be staying again.

Stayed here with a couple of friends and had a lovely time. Nice food which was served by a very funny and obliging waitress who made our night. Open fires and a huge comfy bed. Nice breakfast , good service, located in pleasant surroundings. Beautiful areas to explore.

the staff almost make the hotel, really friendly and helpful, most of the locals speak welsh as do the staff, but they are not at unfriendly, make you feel at home very quickly, ideal location, inside the old wall city, food and beer outstanding,
if it could be classed as a complaint, it was very hot inside hotel rooms and bar, with log fires and central heating, but that is it,
would also check sat nav etc, as it is not easy to find t

I have stayed at the Black Boy Inn many many times and it never fails to impress.
This was my first stay in Black Jacks, the annexe to the Black Boy, the rooms were very very good, clean and nicely furnished and although they lacked the 'quirkiness' of rooms in the Inn they were just as good.
Yet another brilliant evening meal and my favourite Smoked Haddock and Poached Egg for brekkie.
In all my stays I have never had a bad experience here so all I can say is roll on to my next visit.

My husband and I stayed at the Black Boy Inn,Caernarfon,from 1st to the 3rd March 2013
We had stayed here some years ago,and it was a great place to stay then.Now it is even better!!
Full of old world charm,the refurbished rooms are stylish,comfortable,and very clean.
The Welsh breakfast is second to none,as is the Welsh welcome.
The Inn is perfectly situated within the old town walls,only a short walk to the magnificent castle,and other amenities in Caernarfon.It is without a doubt the best hotel,and best pub in the town.The staff are friendly,helpful,and,very good at their jobs.
As always we had a great stay in Caernarfon,the locals are wonderful,and made us very welcome. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Black Boy Inn to anyone looking for a great hotel,with delicious,locally sourced produce,which is well cooked and served,and always with a smile.
We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Tall people should speak to staff before booking.There are many beams from the ceilings which could prove a problem.
