Rogue City Hotel Group edges closer to new Perth boutique hotel project


Henley Homes Group has been confirmed as the preferred bidder for former council offices in Perth under plans to transform the building into a new boutique hotel under its Rogue City Hotel Group brand.

If given the green light, the Group will convert former Perth & Kinross Council offices at 1-5 High Street in Perth into a new hotel in a £1.9m project.

The preferred bidder status follows a competitive marketing process and while not binding to either party, it means negotiations can now begin.

The project, which will create 55 jobs within the hotel itself and £1m a year of GVA, will secure the future of the property and boost the local economy at a time when investment into the city and creation of jobs to recover from the global pandemic is critical.

1-5 High Street is a category B listed building, and the former council chambers and courtroom are deemed to be Common Good.

Henley Homes is a multi award-winning property development group established in 1999.  Through its RCHG brand, it has developed the five-star Dunalastair Hotel Suites at Kinloch Rannoch in Perthshire, and is currently working on The Wellington in Glasgow and The Hobson in Cambridge.

Nassar Khalil, director of Hotels & Leisure at Henley Homes and CEO of RCHG, said, “We are very pleased to have been chosen as preferred bidder for 1-5 High Street, a fantastic location in the heart of Perth, one of Scotland’s most enchanting cities and its original capital. As with all our hotels, our goals are to provide guests with design-led luxury accommodation, with exceptional service, comfort and convenience, and to form a special relationship with the local area.”
