The re-imagined Grade II listed Palé Hall is now officially open as one of the finest country house hotels in Wales and the UK. New owners Alan and Angela Harper have lovingly restored the historic house to its former glory, creating a peaceful and luxurious retreat surrounded by the natural beauty of the Welsh valleys on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.
In its new chapter as a hotel, 18 guest bedrooms and suites have been individually designed with their own style and personal identity, as have the beautiful light-filled public areas of the house including the opulent drawing room and tranquil parlour overlooking the grounds.
Guestrooms and Suites
The individually designed guestrooms use soft yet playful Zoffany furnishings and quintessentially British William Morris prints. Each room holds its own history, such as the aptly named Victoria Suite, home to the bed that Queen Victoria once slept in and her original bathtub.
Every guestroom enjoys a stunning view across the rural Welsh landscape, with window seats or deeply comfortable sofas and armchairs from which to watch the world go by.
Relaxed Fine Dining
The three dining areas within the house provide breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner to residents and non-residents, each with a different look and feel. The largest of them is the grand Henry Robertson dining room, followed by the Venetian dining hael, focuses on the fantastic local produce surrounding the hotel, including meat sourced from within Gwynedd and Denbighshire, welsh cheeses, local cream and milk, Halen Mon sea salt from Anglesey, fruit and vegetables sourced in Wales and Llandderfel honey.
With the gorgeous surrounding natural landscape, a wealth of outdoor activities are offered in the grounds of the hotel and beyond. Guests can enjoy countless walks and hikes from Palé Hall’s front door, and as dog lovers themselves.
During the season, Palé Hall organises shooting parties in the surrounding estates, and also trips to local fishing beats on the neighbouring streams and rivers that are renowned for their salmon and trout. Nightly rates at Palé Hall start from £190 B&B.
