In the title compound, C(14)H(13)Cl(2)NO, the 2,6-dichloro-anilino unit is roughly planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0298 Å) and makes a dihedral angle of 67.71 (4)° with the benzene ring containing the ethanol group. The C-C-O fragment is oriented at a dihedral angle of 64.94 (9)° with respect to its parent benzene ring. The molecular conformation is stabilised by a bifurcated N-H⋯(O,Cl) hydrogen bond. C-H⋯π, O-H⋯π and π-π inter-actions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.5706 (11) Å] stabilize the crystal structure.
