New country house hotel Palé Hall has joined Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) ahead of its launch in September.
The new Grade-II listed 19th century hotel joins 33 other SLH hotels in the UK and becomes the consortium’s debut property in Wales when it opens on September 1.
The hotel’s new owners, Alan and Angela Harper have renovated the property back to its former glory, with all 18 bedrooms and suites being given a complete makeover.
Chef Michael Caines has teamed up with the Harper’s to take control of the food and beverage offering at Palé Hall, while head chef Gareth Stevenson will work alongside in the kitchens.
The hotel’s three dining areas – the Henry Robertson dining room, the Venetian-themed dining room and the Library – will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
Daniel Luddington, vice president of development at Small Luxury Hotels of the World, says: “Palé Hall perfectly matches all that SLH prides itself on – independently-minded owners who have poured their heart and soul into creating their dream hotel. The hotel’s rich history, passionate owners and stunning Snowdonian setting gives it a fascinating story to tell. Palé Hall is a true Welsh gem that we are very much looking forward to promoting.”
Alan and Angie Harper the owners of Palé Hall, say: “We are delighted to have been welcomed into the Small Luxury Hotels fold. Small and independently owned luxury hotels with their own character is their speciality and we feel we fit perfectly within their portfolio.”
