NEWS: Palé Hall, North Wales opening Summer 2016

Palé Hall, Bala, Llandderfel, North Wales – opening summer 2016

On the edge of Snowdonia National Park within a dramatic 50 acre estate, Palé Hall is an historic, Grade II* listed country house that is currently under-going an extensive refurbishment programme, set to open its doors this summer as a fine dining, luxury destination country house hotel. The Victorian property is currently closed for restoration after being acquired by telecoms entrepreneur Alan Harper and his wife Angela, a former head teacher. The new owners are personally overseeing the project to the very finest detail, and are working in association with Michael Caines who will be developing an exclusive fine dining restaurant to the property in addition to his hospitality industry guidance in all areas of the business. A Head Chef will be appointed and announced later this year.


Palé Hall is regarded as one of Wales’s most important surviving country houses, and the Harpers’ personal mission is very much to preserve and gracefully enhance the property, retaining its individual character and rich history which will play a central part in the guest experience. Having played host to the likes of Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill in past years, Palé Hall will once again become one of the very finest places to stay in the UK. There will be 18 individually designed guest bedrooms and suites, each with a unique charm and style of their own and all enjoying stunning rural views. Original period features have been retained as much as possible, and the owners have gone to great lengths to ensure no detail has been forgotten, sourcing beautiful individual pieces of furniture and art to adorn the property and hand-stenciling wall decoration to match the original details uncovered during the process. The three dining room spaces will play host to breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, each providing a sumptuous yet relaxed and friendly backdrop to Michael Caines’ signature menu, which will focus on fantastic local produce delivered with absolute professionalism in preparation, presentation and service.
