About The Black Boy Inn

The Black Boy Inn has offered accommodation within the old city walls of Caernarfon for more than five centuries, and still retains its original character with oak beams, open fires and hand-crafted furnishings. Caernarfon Castle is only a few minutes’ walk away and the university city of Bangor is a 9.1 mile drive.

Each of the 16 bedrooms is en-suite, with large TV, tea & coffee facilities, and free Wi-Fi. The Black Jack’s courtyard annex offers ten further rooms, and eight have mini kitchens and small seating areas.

Free parking is available and guests can take advantage of baggage storage and plenty of local knowledge at the reception desk.

Guests can partake of fully cooked breakfasts, hearty seasonal and A La Carte fare and a traditional bar with real ales and other local tipples.

The Black Boy Inn is eight miles from the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.

Accommodating, friendly team.
