Stayed overnight in October. Well greated then abandoned and had to find someone to show us our room. Gorgeous building. The communal areas are also gorgeous. The route to our turret room got less exciting. Turret rooms are interesting but the TV come mirror does not work as the sun shines on it in such a way you cannot see the screen. Lovely bathroom. Grounds are nice but not as expansive as Hotel info would suggest. Breakfast was OK but they allow dogs in which I was not aware of. I also got stuck behind a wooden screen - there for COVID but it meant any view I had was gone.

Wonderful! An exceptional venue. Staff could not have welcomed us more, service was second to none! Lovely food - a fantastic pre-Christmas treat. Such a shame that others will be unable to enjoy due to the latest restrictions. Looking forwards to visiting again in 2021.

Stayed here in November using a Secret Escapes Deal postponed from April. We had been about 10/15 years ago but how different it is now! Very warm and welcoming, the young staff were excellent ; the vegetarian tasting menu delicious; the rooms traditional but with a modern twist; the grounds lovely. All in all I can't reccommend it enough.

Palé Hall oozes understated elegance throughout its stunning Victorian “pile”. The views over the Welsh hills and the wide and powerful river Dee are lovely. The location is a rural idyll with pheasants, rabbits, squirrels, many species of bird, Shetland ponies, a braying donkey and I think I spotted a Mellors! Decked out for Christmas, the warm atmosphere within stemmed from a combination of blazing, wood fires, the intricate wooden panelling and block flooring and a welcoming staff. The tasting menu plus wine flight were top notch with first rate service. Our room, Churchill, was outstanding and how fortunate we were in our choice of it - four-poster bed, a huge bath made from copper and zinc, and wallpaper and furnishings that felt William Morris. It was very much somewhere you could quite happily spend hours in. This is a special place. Excellent staff, we’ll award Luke “seren y gêm”.

Lovely Hotel- spotlessly clean. Went for Sunday lunch -choice on menu wasn’t extensive but ample apart from the starter which was only a choice of three. Soup was pored into a large bowl -cereal size which hardly covered the bottom and no bread was served with it -very disappointing as soup is so cheap to produce-it was also luke warm. I did advise the waitress of this matter and that it was the smallest portion by far that I’d ever had -her answer was-I’ll advise the chef and that was it- no response !!I I also heard the next table discussing portion size! The main and sweet were acceptable. Felt comfortable and a relaxing atmosphere here in a very nice location.
