Scotland’s Perle Hotels Group honoured with King’s Award for Enterprise in its 10th anniversary year


IN this, its 10th anniversary year, UK-based Perle Hotels has been honoured with a King’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of the Scottish hotel group’s outstanding achievement in international trade.  This is the second time in five years (previously in 2019) that this award has been bestowed upon the luxury Perle Hotels group. Previously known as the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the accolade from His Majesty The King is considered the most prestigious of all awards for UK businesses. Recipients of The King’s Awards for Enterprise 2024 will appear in a special supplement of The Gazette on 6 May, while a reception for award winners will be held at Windsor Castle on 9 July, hosted by HM The King.

Perle Hotels, which has its headquarters in Edinburgh and hotels in the Highlands and Islands, has won the award for its outstanding short-term growth in overseas sales over the last three years.  The company was established in 2014 with three boutique hotels on the Isle of Skye. Today, Perle Hotels has emerged as one of the leading Scottish independent hotel groups with five hotels. Four of them have been recently renovated while the fifth, a cabin concept that was acquired in 2023, is in the process of being extended.

During the last year, the hotels have welcomed guests from a remarkable 90 countries across all six continents, the largest markets being North America and Europe (excluding UK travellers).

Commenting, Beth Rehman, Brand Director, Perle Hotels said, “Over the past three years, our overseas sales have continued to grow steadily and Perle Hotels has welcomed visitors to Scotland from all over the world.  We see the award as a huge pat on the back for the whole team;  we simply couldn’t have achieved it without our outstanding colleagues as well as our excellent partners and suppliers. Just as it did in 2019, the award will do much to spur us on to attract further new overseas territories, to build on our existing markets and, we hope, improve our profile worldwide.”

Perle Hotels currently operates five hotels:

Perle Oban Hotel & Spa, Oban – This luxury hotel & spa, set in a 19th-century building in the centre of Oban, is a perfect combination of Victorian charm and contemporary chic. With beautiful views over the harbour, and the railway station and ferry terminal just a stone’s throw away, it is the ideal base for exploring Scotland’s islands and Highlands.

The Bosville Hotel & Restaurant, Skye – Contained within a trio of 19th-century cottages, the Bosville, with its refined but cosy accommodation, is in the heart of the village of Portree, opposite the harbour, with some of the best views in town.

Marmalade Hotel, Skye – With commanding views over Portree, the loch and the Cuillin Mountains, Marmalade is a mix of historic Manor House and contemporary 4-star hotel, ideal for those who appreciate design details and all-important little luxuries such as Nespresso coffee machines and Bose sound systems.

Glencoe House, the Highlands – Built by Lord Strathcona in 1896, Glencoe’s finest 5-star hotel offers 14 generous suites, whether in the main mansion or the nearby Strathcona Lodges.  Located in 10 acres of private gardens and surrounded by some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the world, there are opportunities aplenty for adventure, romance and quiet contemplation in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Recognised for four years in a row by TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards, the hotel this year has been placed 13th in the UK’s Luxury category.

Bracken Hide, Skye – The Bracken Hide bridges the gap between a striking modern four-star hotel and wilderness-style accommodation, so connecting guests to the magic of the Island. Guests sleep in comfortable cabins with underfloor heating that are scattered across the hillside, while the Hub houses the restaurant, snug and Mezzanine Lounge – the interiors reflect the palette and textures that surround it. Stand-out features are the wild plunge pool and a pair of stunning highland Estonian saunas.
