Daily Telegraph comments that the Black Boy is one of the best places to stay in north wales. You can visit Portmeirion nearby.
Stroll to the nearby 16th-century Black Boy Inn, check into your room in time for dinner, then head for the buzzing, picturesque streets with the locals, wander around the castle walls, along the harbour and on to Castle Square in the twilight.
Stand next to the statue of Lloyd George and look up at the castle, resplendent in its evening illuminations. Above and to your right is Queen’s Gate, where – after his 1969 investiture as Prince of Wales – Charles hailed the crowds. To your left, all of Snowdonia, truly the jewel in Wales’ crown
