I have wanted to stay at Pale Hall for a while and it seemed the perfect time as we are all staying closer to home. They contacted me before I arrived to confirm dietary requirements and arrival time. It was such a beautiful day when I arrived, sun was shining, and I sat in the gardens with a glass of fizz. What a beautiful view. The gardens are lovely, rabbits bobbing around, lovely wild pond with dragonflies, horses and a donkey. I had afternoon tea and breakfast, I didn’t need an evening meal after my afternoon tea! The Hall is a treasure trove of beauty. However what made this stay and pushed the experience from lovely to wonderful were the staff. Everyone I encountered was professional and friendly. I felt like I was at home and can’t wait to return,

We stayed at Pale Hall in their Powys suite in Mid July. Loved the suite and the room service was excellent. The grounds were pleasant and the staff on the whole friendly. What let it down for us was the food. We opted for the five course tasting menu. The portions were small, even for a tasting menu, and rather tasteless. We were both still hungry after the meal and ended up eating some left over sandwiches from lunchtime. The bottle of white wine to go with our meal was warm and we were told it couldn’t be cooled in time to go with our food. Breakfast the next morning was a disaster: suffice to say we walked out. (To be fair to the hotel they did knock off the price of breakfast from the bill without any prompting). Two days after our stay we received a standard email from the general manager requesting feedback. After responding, much as above, we received a rather grudging and self-serving apology. We appreciate times are tough for the hotel trade and were quite prepared to make allowances but we found the whole experience quite depressing; we wished the hotel was prepared to engage more in customer feedback rather than try and point score.

Absolutely sublime. Beautiful building and grounds, excellent food and attentive service. My son has never eaten so much food — he just couldn’t get enough. They came up with a special menu for my daughter, each day, to cater for her specific dietary requirements which was brilliant. Overall, first class.
