We strive to provide a personal service for each guest. From the moment you arrive our friendly inn staff are always on hand to assist and share their local knowledge.
Since the early 16th Century, The Black Boy Inn hotel in Caernarfon has been welcoming weary travellers and visitors to the Town of Caernarfon and region of Snowdonia. Some things don’t change, whether you want to drink, dine or unwind, you will find The Black Boy Inn the perfect base to explore the beautiful Snowdonia Mountains of North Wales and Anglesey. We have forty-seven comfortable guest rooms all with private bathrooms and all individually styled and furnished. Free Wi-Fi is available for all our guests throughout the entire hotel.
Our celebrated restaurant has a Visit Wales Bronze Award and has a menu to suit all tastes. Each dish is devised and perfected by our head chef and is designed to utilise local ingredients from local suppliers. Whether it’s a light lunch or an evening meal, The Black Boy Inn offers a warm welcome and good food to those in search of a relaxed and traditionally Welsh experience and environment. Our Caernarfon B&B, hotel-style stay is handy for Snowdonia.
We are sorry but we do not accept dogs within the building, with exception of guide/assistance dogs.


“There was no moon. The sky above our heads was inky black… the salt wind from the sea.” D.du Maurier.
Secured within the strong embrace of Caernarfons’ Medieval Fortress, The Black Boy Inn stands head and shoulders above its contemporaries. The Inn dates back to 1522, and has been lovingly maintained, to allow us a glimpse of the glorious past. Low ceilings with thick beams, nooks and crannies, lit up by blazing real fires, which throw out enchanting lights, that dance romantically across pristine shining brasses. Serving some of the best food in Wales, people literally flock to its doors every summer, in anticipation of another magnificent dining experience. There’s a genuinely happy vibe throughout this establishment, and lucky guests are treated to a truly sublime experience. Beautiful, elegant rooms offer a touch of exceptional luxury, in spacious, spotless rooms furnished with opulence and flair. A shining jewel in Wales’ Crown.


Maybe you love someone enough to give them your last rolo; but the thought of sharing even a morsel of your meal at The Black Boy Inn, can seriously put true love to the test! Family run, the produce is always locally sourced, spanking fresh and utterly delicious. With “Field to Fork” their ethos, the award winning food, has been rhapsodised in countless newspapers and travel guides. From behind the scenes, the talented Chef, sends out the piping hot, scrumptious delights, all served by an immaculate, hardworking and always charming, team of people. Choose from an abundant menu of unpretentious, succulent food, created with imagination and skill, and probably the best chips and coleslaw ever!
