Established operator Perle Hotels has added its first Inverness hotel to its Scottish portfolio of hospitality properties.
Christie + Co has completed on the sale of The Lochardil Hotel on behalf of owner Eileen Fraser and Graeme MacBean, who decided to sell the 28-bedroom hotel to retire after 30 years of ownership.
Perle Hotels acquired the property in a confidential, off-market transaction, adding to its Scottish hotel portfolio, which currently includes the Perle Oban Hotel, as well as the Marmalade and Bosville Hotels on Skye.
The Lochardil Hotel is home to 12 bedrooms within the original hotel, plus a further 16 bedrooms in a two-storey annex building.
Stuart Drysdale, director at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments: “We were approached by the owners of The Lochardil Hotel to undertake a discreet marketing process as there was no rush to sell given the strong profit margins consistently recorded. The hotel has enjoyed healthy turnover levels and profits over the years and we are confident Perle Hotels will be able to build upon the historic trading levels as Inverness continues to enjoy increased visitor numbers.”
