Wonderful stay in historic Caernarfon.
Posted Oct 7, 2016
We planned to stay here 2 nights to see Caernarfon Castle. Liked the Inn and the town so much we stayed two additional nights. Knew only what I had read on Expedia about the Black Boy Inn. Arrived from Porthmadog on the Welsh Highland Railway and thought that was perfect. The Inn is just inside the city walls and a short 2 minute walk to Caernarfon Castle. Renovations aside, the inn looks remarkably as you'd expect an inn founded in 1522 to look. An extensive compound of timber and stone buildings on narrow, cobbled streets. Once inside, you find all the beamed ceilings, dark wood, fireplaces, nooks and crannies you'd expect. Exceptional bar and restaurant. Both are very popular with guests and locals. Great breakfasts. From reception to housekeepers, the staff is wonderful. Rooms and suites (we had both) are immaculate, comfortable and so full of character. Staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend visiting Caernarfon and The Black Boy Inn.
