The Black Boy Inn is a minutes walk away from Caernarfon's famous 13th century castle a looming fantastical World Heritage Site. Nine hundred yards further is the starting point of the Welsh Highland Railway offering a journey through the fabulous scenery of the Snowdonia National Park. The Black Boy Inn Caernarfon have been offering accommodation and dining of distinction since 1522.

Situated in the heart of the Royal Borough of Caernarfon within the medieval castle walls the hotel has charm aplenty with its roaring open fires oak beams and all the Welsh character that its age & location suggests. Most of our staff and working owners are welsh speaking. At the Black Boy Inn each of our 16 en-suite bedrooms has its own charm.

Whilst up-dating the rooms to a high standard we have strived to retain the unique character and atmosphere by using local traditional building materials with handmade furniture and quality fittings. Black Jacks is an additional building in courtyard of the Inn renovated to give an extra 10 rooms 8 of which are junior suites with mini kitchens. Our restaurant can get very busy at times and operates on a first-come first-served basis.
