What our guests are saying

“Divine! Luxurious with a warm family feel”
We visited the Palé Hall for our 5th anniversary and everything was perfect from booking to check out. There is a very special atmosphere in this place, it is luxurious, very welcoming and so tranquil.

“Truly 5 star and well deserved”
Probably the most enjoyable overnight stay we have had in any hotel in the uk.
Peter J, UK

“Superb”
We have had two wonderful days staying at Pale Hall, we arrived to a fabulous welcome, suitcases removed from the car, valet parking too. A glass of fizz to welcome you, a tour of the house, taken to your room, this place is something else… All the staff are absolutely brilliant, courteous and so obliging. Pale Hall team – every credit to you. We had an amazing time.

“Relaxing & regal stay”
Beautiful surroundings and building. It was like stepping back in time when entering the elegant hallway. The property feels more like a country manor than a hotel, which was just what we were looking for. We wanted character and charm and Pale Hall has plenty of both. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and the dinner was excellent. A perfect retreat for a staycation.

“A truly exceptional hotel”
We recently stayed here, attracted by the excellent reviews.The hotel is certainly different, set in its own grounds close to the Snowdonia National Park. The difference is apparent as soon as you enter the hotel – there is no reception desk!
Roger M, UK

“Perfection”
I am not a review-writer, but following a two night stay at Pale Hall, I was so impressed that I had to write something. From the minute we arrived we felt like part of the family.
