Perle Hotels Launch Their Second Luxury Hotel

18th of June, 2017 | Posted in Design Features, Editor's Picks, Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

Perle Hotels have opened the Perle Oban Hotel, on the site of the former Oban Caledonian hotel, in Station Square in the town, creating the first four-star hotel in the area.

Purpose built as a hotel in 1882, the Perle Oban has been sensitively refurbished by ICA Architects and Interior Designers to retain the majority of its original features but to also maximise the hotel’s positioning opposite the harbour.

Perle Hotels acquired the 60 room hotel in October 2016, with backing from the Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and is believed to have invested millions in the revamp.

Internally, beautiful cornicing and plasterwork have been highlighted with a contemporary colour and textural palette to reflect the breath-taking seascapes that can be seen from the guestroom windows. ICA has used neutral materials that have been locally sourced, and used contemporary patterns which reflect local traditions but brings the luxurious atmosphere bang up to date. A new restaurant – Restaurant 1882 – has been created to complement the cafe bar, Brew & Co.
