Valentines Day surprise!
Took my amazing wife away for a surprise romantic Valentines night. The room was immaculate, the bed was very comfortable and the vibe at the Inn was buzzing. Most enjoyable stay, we will be returning soon.

Nice Character Hotel and Great Staff
Arrived late. No problem at all. Got the number of the Nightporter and he showed me to my room. Great service. Hotel has a great mix of character and modern. Only minor to note: Parking close by is quite tight with a larger car (in my case Passat Estate) due to available space. But if you get there earlier there is free parking a bit from the hotel.

The black boy inn,nooks and crannies.
Wonderful old pub with lovely features.The suite was very clean and serviced very well each day.The bed was enormous and very comfy.The only downside to the black jack suite 40 was the very bright street lamp which shone in below and ablve and through the curtains and the road noise.The black boy inn did provide eye masks and ear plugs but we cant sleep with anything on our face or in our ears,maybe wouldnt bother other people.It might be a better idea to fit a pelmet and black out curtains.The restaurant was good,the portions are massive which is a little off putting when your meal arrives but would suit those with a huge appetite.All in all a great place to stay especially as it is near lots of tourist attractions.

When my partner entered the room she said "I'm so happy" it was better than expected, in fact we cancelled the hotel in Anglesey and stayed an extra night at the Black boy. It was close to the castle and in walking distance to the whole town and harbour.
