Scotland-based Perle Hotels purchased the five-star Glencoe House Hotel in the Highlands to add to its portfolio.
The 14-bedroom property has been owned and operated by Roger Niemeyer and Judy Pate since 2011 who have extensively invested in restoring the hotel back to its former glory.
Now Glencoe House Hotel will be brought into the Perle Hotels group, with all existing employment contacts honoured and all staff transferred to work under the new ownership.
Perle Hotels currently owns and operates four hotels in Scotland; te Marmalade and Bosville Hotels overlook the harbour in Portree, while The Perle Oban is located on the harbour in Oban and Lochardil House Hotel is a short distance from the centre of Inverness.
Fasih Rehman, CEO of Perle Hotels, says: “Glencoe House Hotel and its team are a fantastic addition to our growing hotel group. 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.”
Glencoe House was built by Lord Strathcona in 1896 and is best known for the bloody massacre in 1692 between the Campbell and the MacDonald clans.
Perle Hotels was established in 2014 and has grown rapidly in the past five years.
The group received the Queens Award for International Trade last month at Buckingham Palace.
Perle Hotels is also continuing work on expanding the award-winning Marmalade Hotel.
Currently just 11 bedrooms, the extension will add 23 extra bedrooms in order to meet demand, as well as a new lounge area.
Phase two of the work is due to begin in October 2019, with the full extension expected to be open to guests by April 2020.
