Welcome to Palé Hall


Distinctive charms, a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, comfort and exceptional food, set spectacularly in the beautiful Snowdonia landscape.

Palé Hall is a recently-refurbished, destination country house hotel with a fine dining restaurant – open to non-residents – created in association with Michelin-star chef Michael Caines, with signature dishes realised by our own head chef Gareth Stevenson.

Palé Hall is a destination for quiet retreat, comfort and culinary indulgence. Situated in the tranquil Dee valley this grand, historic, high Victorian mansion has an idyllic woodland garden rolling down to the banks of the river. The spectacular Snowdonia National Park is on our doorstep.

The hotel features eighteen luxurious, individually styled bedrooms with sumptuous décor, each with a beautifully appointed bathroom.

Expect to enjoy exceptional standards of service in a friendly, informal and relaxing atmosphere.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Palé Hall Burns Night event

Wednesday 25th January
Want to celebrate Burns night, but don’t want to travel to Scotland?
Palé Hall Hotel is celebrating its historical Scottish links with a full Burns celebration. Built by Scot, Henry Robertson, Palé has more than a nod to his homeland in its design. Our Grand Hall is dominated by a huge Scottish mountain scene and our stairs are bedecked with tartan carpets. It’s a small leap of imagination to think of yourself in a Scottish Baronial home.
So whether you have a Scottish heritage or are just looking for an excuse to dress up and eat and drink well. Come and join us and enliven a dreary end of January.

Scottish music and a delicious 4-course traditional Scottish meal followed by a wee dram £65.00 per person

“Our favourite place”
Welcoming and attentive staff, friendliness at all times, a well judged menu with superb and imaginative food (a souffle to die for!). Pale Hall has the wow factor – splendour, history and super grounds.
