Just returned home after staying at Pale for a 2nd time. Conveniently we don't live too far from the hotel, it's a nice drive through the hills and country lanes. Once you drive through the entrance and up the driveway you stumble across this magnificent house. Straight away you experience top end service. As you approach the front door is...

We made a last minute booking and stayed for one night dinner, bed & breakfast earlier this month. From the moment we arrived until our departure, we were made to feel completely at ease and welcome - and that included our Jack Russell Terrier, Socks, too. Our beautifully decorated room had a really comfortable half-tester bed, and the dog had...

A lovely few days at Pale Hall over Easter. We immediately felt very welcome, so we quickly relaxed and agree with everyone who has said it feels more like a home than a hotel - that's their intention and it worked for us. Our rooms were fabulous and the whole hotel is stunning both inside and out. The breakfasts were...

We had been really looking forward to our visit to Pale Hall, hoping the marvellous reviews on TA were deserved. They are! As well as being stunning in its own right, the hall is set in simply lovely grounds, amid the gorgeous rolling Welsh countryside. The hall itself has been tastefully renovated, the public rooms down stairs being furnished with...

Took the Aston for a blast around North Wales, phone the Hotel to see if there was a table free. Happily there was a table. Great atmosphere, attentive service, and the whole place had been seriously upgraded since I was last here ... a long time ago. The food was very good, and the service fault less. The only draw...

A wonderful afternoon tea , excellent service in a beautiful location. We also treated ourselves to a glass of champagne which was well worth it.

Went with the family to Pale Hall for Sunday lunch, beautiful setting, the hall has been decorated superbly and is a credit to the owners. Lunch was exceptional and the staff/service was excellent. Would recommend this to anyone, must be a delight to stay over, well done Pale Hall.
