High five for Perle Hotels

 Glencoe House Hotel is latest addition to group’s Highland portfolio


HIGHLAND hotels group Perle has bought five-star Glencoe House Hotel, taking its portfolio to five.

The firm, whose hotels include The Perle Oban, Lochardil House Hotel in Inverness and The Bosville and Marmalade in Portree on the Isle of Skye, acquired the historic property, which was built by Lord Strathcona in 1896, for an undisclosed sum; Perle Hotels said “all existing employment contracts will be honoured and all staff will continue working at the 14-suite hotel”.


“Glencoe House Hotel and its team are a fantastic addition to our growing hotel group,” said Perle Hotels chief executive Fasih Rehman.

“We appreciate what a very special place Glencoe House is, but also the very high standards at which it operates now and we intend to build further on these in the future.”

The acquisition comes as Perle Hotels continues work to expand its Marmalade hotel in Portree. An extension will add 23 bedrooms and a new lounge area to the 11-bedroom hotel; phase two of the work is due to begin in October, with the full extension expected to be open to guests next April.
