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.
