Ooozing Charm!
So much better than expected! I was pleasantly surprised to see the inn was inside the old castle/city walls- very cool! This was the quintessential old pub I was looking for on our stay. So charming. We had drinks in the bar, dinner in the main dining room and breakfast in the carriage house. The food was AMAZING- some of the best on our 14 days tour through UK. Best omelet I've ever had:) dinner choices were great and we opted for welsh traditional and their specials. We even had dessert because it was so good! the room was perfect and the en-suite was very modern so the best of both worlds. I loved that everything was super close and in walking distance. We walked the streets and went to the castle in the morning!

Living History
Nearing its 500 year anniversary, this historic Inn is located within the outer Wall of Castle Caernarfon. The history, hospitality and food are all top notch. Just watch your head, some of the old ceilings are low.

Perfect for us.
We were in the area to run the Snowdonia Trail Run. The Inn was welcoming and comfortable. Seems the bar and restaurant are the best in town, and I would owe that to their excellent staff, A special shout out to Jack, bartender and waitstaff extraordinaire. Location central to everything in Caernarfon, and just a short drive to Llanberris, where we had a couple of excellent walks. The only unfortunate thing about the Inn is its name. We just referred to it as the BBI.

Staff friendly and helpful. Room was clean comfortable. The hotel was interesting with lots of history and twists and turns. We spent two nights there so just had a small suitcase,which was fine, stairways and passage ways are narrow you would have trouble with a big suitcase.
