Hotel Description
The Black Boy is a 16th-century inn within Caernarfon's historic town walls. It serves hearty gastro Welsh food and real craft beers in front of roaring log fires and is an easy walk from the town center and 13th-century castle. The Black Boy Inn dates back to 1522 and is one of the oldest inns in North Wales. While updating the rooms to a high standard the property has retained their unique character and atmosphere by using local traditional building materials with handmade furniture and quality fittings. Some of its walls are 1.2 to 4.9 feet thick. The wood paneling creaking floorboards low ceilings narrow staircases and thick wooden beams create a cozy atmosphere. Black Jack's is a separate part of the inn and is located in a courtyard to the rear. Eight of these 10 spacious rooms have mini kitchens and a small seating area. The Black Tower is a listed Edwardian building locate towards the rear of the inn in a separate building. It is a few minutes' walk from Caernarfon Castle.

Fabulous

Liked: Perfect location, staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely old feel to the building with bars in all sorts of nooks and crannies. Stayed in the newer rooms, which were modern but in keeping with the overall appearance, food good and large portions. Breakfast very nice.
Disliked: Not so much what I didn?t like, but I found out why there are earplugs in the room. Two external sources of noises the hotel can?t be held responsible for, the seagulls and 6am very loud dustbin emptying, got the impression they were up so everybody else should be. However one thing in my room was the odd very loud banging coming from what sounded like the walls during the night, and only the night. Could have been the pipes but don?t think so. The banging happened maybe 15 times per night, 5 to 10 seconds at a time and loud. The staff I mentioned it to, were not aware of it. As I say not a complaint as such just an observation.
