Overview

Palé Hall Hotel is a 5-star Victorian mansion in the Dee Valley. Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria both stayed here, and the property "still hasn't lost its special touch", according to The Daily Telegraph, which includes it on its list of the most romantic hotels in Wales.

The country property is set within 50 acres of gardens and woodland that roll down to the River Dee. The market town of Bala is a 10-minute drive away, while Snowdonia National Park is 35 minutes away.

Palé Hall Hotel has a Visit Wales Gold Award, and was also named on Condé Nast Traveler's 2018 Gold List of its favorite hotels in the world. The property was fully renovated in 2016, yet maintains stained-glass windows, crystal chandeliers, wood panelling and grand fireplaces.

The 18 bedrooms that have been individually decorated, some with William Morris prints. Each room retains period features; the bath used by Queen Victoria when she visited in 1889 is in the Victoria room.

The restaurant, which is led by Gareth Stevenson, holds three AA Rosettes. Tasting menus are served with a grand backdrop -- expect an ornate plaster ceiling, a grand fireplace and a crystal chandelier. However, as a reviewer from the Daily Post noted, dining "was a friendly experience without any stuffiness at all".

The hotel even has its own hydro-electric generating system that provides power to the whole property.
