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.
