Perle Hotels kick starts portfolio revamp with sweet boutique makeover in Skye


Hotel brand Perle Hotels has unveiled the new look of its boutique hotel in Skye, as part of a wider programme of refurbishments to its 3-strong portfolio in Scotland. 

The group has given The Marmalade Hotel in Portree an uplift, increasing the bedroom count from nine to 11 and giving its restaurant and public areas a makeover.

The original Grade B listed Georgian house, built by Lord MacDonald in 1810, is named after the orange trees planted in its gardens and the hotel’s new look utilises earthy materials and colours to highlight its picturesque location.

This look had also been carried through to the restaurant and public areas of the property which is set against the backdrop of Portree harbour and the Cuillin mountains.

Interior design company ICA was responsible for the refurbishment and featured local suppliers throughout the project including bed throws from Skye Weavers, artwork in the dining room from local artist Diana Mackie and guestroom artwork from textile artist Jane Hunter.

Astro Lighting was used internally as well Ulster Carpets and a selection of other top brands.

The Perle Hotels portfolio consists of The Marmalade Hotel, Perle Oban, which opened in spring of this year and The Bosville.

Earlier this year the group appointed Angela Finlay as operations director, joining from Skye company, The Three Chimneys.
