Despite the lockdowns happening across the UK, we can all still plan where we would like to go in the future. If you are considering stunning North Wales for your next break (when you get the chance) then the historical Caernarfon is a perfect choice. You get the best of both worlds; a quirky town, and a gateway to the National Park, Snowdonia.
This list of 10 Caernarfon hotels can help you decide where to stay:
- The Black Boy Inn
This 16th Century Inn lies within the town’s castle walls, and is one of the oldest Inns in North Wales. The establishment has managed to update the rooms to a high standard whilst keeping the unique and traditional atmosphere. Think wood panelling, creaky floorboards, and thick beams making a super cosy Welsh stay.
