Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has welcomed Palé Hall into its collection of independently-owned hotels around the world. This will be SLH’s first hotel in Wales. It joins 33 other SLH hotels within the United Kingdom.
Palé Hall’s new owners, Alan and Angela Harper, have restored its 18 bedrooms and suites, giving each one its own identity and style with Zoffany furnishings and William Morris prints. The 19th century grade II-listed country home is located on the edge of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, and has hosted guests that include Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill.
British chef Michael Caines has aided in the creation of the restaurants and menus, while Gareth Stevenson will be dead chef. Previously, Stevenson was head chef at Abode in Chester and has worked at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze and with Caines at Gidleigh Park. The three dining areas – the grand Henry Robertson dining room, the Venetian-themed dining room, and the intimate Library – will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner.
Palé Hall will open to guests on September 1.
