Peering through the trees within the sprawling wooded grounds overlooking the Dee Valley, Palé Hall Hotel near Bala stands against the mountainous backdrop of Snowdonia National Park. Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, this has become one of the most magnificent country house hotels in Wales. Sympathetically restored to enhance original features such as period fireplaces and the most ornate ceilings, this labour of love has been one of the biggest successes of the hotel industry in recent years.
The approach to the Grade II Listed, Victorian Gothic building presents a feast for the eyes. As you try desperately to take in the jaw dropping surroundings, glimpses of imposing turrets and mountains come in and out of view from behind the clusters of colourful, leafy canopies. This truly is one of the most enchanting settings you will come across.
There is something so different and magical about this historic house that makes it stand out from other Snowdonia hotels. Not only does the setting tug on your heart strings, inside it has such a special atmosphere that makes you instantly feel at home.
The resplendent entrance hall features a hand carved staircase that winds above a grand piano and leads into public rooms and three unique dining rooms. Antiques and original paintings adorn the rooms and vie for your attention as you find your way around.
Palé Hall is one of the finest 5 Star hotels in Wales and has played host to notable figures throughout its lifetime, including Queen Victoria and Sir Winston Churchill.
The 18 bedrooms are equally as impressive and while they still retain their historic charm, they also introduce contemporary design, with sophisticated wallpapers, luxurious furnishings and showstopping bathrooms. Whether you long for a romantic four poster bed or a roll top bath, each room is wonderfully appointed with remarkable attention to detail.
Dining is at the very heart of Palé Hall hotel, with Gareth Stevenson taking the helm in the kitchen. Discovering the finest ingredients from local producers and blending them with his own inimitable culinary techniques, Gareth has gained the restaurant 3 AA Rosettes through his creative and accomplished dishes.
Facilities at Palé Hall have been scrupulously considered to provide guests with a luxurious and unique experience.

Things to do in Snowdonia
Snowdonia is Wales’ beautiful National Park and is home to countless attractions and mesmerising scenery. Owing to its dramatic landscapes, the park lends itself to a wide range of outdoor activities. From fishing, cycling and walking to more adrenalin fuelled watersports, you’ll find something to suit all ages. Families should head to King Arthur’s Labyrinth, Glasfry Parc or Green Wood Forest Park to keep the children entertained. For the adventure seekers, Zip World and Go Below Underground Adventures are sure to test your mettle.
Taking a mixture of individual styles from past and present and combining them with various colour schemes, the Classic Rooms boast distinct personalities. Some enjoy pretty courtyard and garden views, while others feature a roll top bath or chaise longue. Pembroke looks out onto the courtyard and is one of the hotel’s dog friendly rooms.
Tucked into the turrets of the house, Beaumaris and Harlech overlook the gardens and mountains beyond, and have a separate seating area for relaxing and soaking up the views. Beautiful wooden beds lie next to the windows so you can wake to the ever-changing scenery each morning.
There are six Grand Rooms, each with individual character. Elegantly appointed with features such as carved wardrobes, slipper baths and dressing room, you will find something unique in each. As the name suggests, Victoria was occupied by Queen Victoria and boasts a half tester bed and original bath and basin, used by Queen Victoria herself. Criccieth and Dolbarden are both dog friendly rooms.
From Ruthin’s four poster bed and huge windows to Caernarfon’s bateaux roll top bath, the Master Rooms let you enjoy that extra luxury for a romantic break in Wales.
The real jewels in Palé Hall’s crown are the three Superior Suites. These rooms are spacious with impressive features. Churchill is baronial in style and played host to Sir Winston Churchill on occasions. The striking vaulted ceiling towers above a four poster bed, and the marble bathroom sits behind a secret door where you’ll find an oversized copper and zinc bath.
