The opening of the Perle Oban Hotel back in May 2017 was the company's biggest project yet.
Perle Hotels chose to renovate the hotel formerly known as the Oban Caledonian Hotel. The investment in excess of £5 million is expected to be part of a greater focus to improve Oban’s economy by boosting tourism and offering the opportunity to develop a career in hospitality.
The town has changed a lot in the past century but remains a location with much to offer in terms of activities and stunning landscapes. Recent developments including the Marina, will contribute to Oban becoming the “St Tropez of Scotland”.
The hotel was originally built as the first-class passenger’s hotel when the rail road was brought to Oban. Bringing back the elegance of this classic property signals Oban once again becoming a destination for traveller’s from all over the world seeking the beauty of the West Coast of Scotland.
The aim of the hotel is simple; a luxury hotel for the discerning traveller, looking for cosmopolitan amenities with a sense of the locale. No expense was spared in renovations of the hotel, which is situated in the heart of Oban town. From Egyptian cotton linen, to Bluetooth Bose sound systems and L’occitane toiletries in each room, guests will enjoy unrivalled quality during their stay in any of the 59 rooms at Perle Oban.
The hotel’s vision is to provide service from happy passionate people, hosting guests from all over the world with genuine warmth and care. Giving them lasting memories with a focus on local experiences and wellness.
Local food and drink
Named after the year the original hotel was opened, the 1882 Restaurant prides itself in providing guests with fresh, local produce. Head Chef John Parker, brings his International experience to the table and turns lobster caught on the hotel’s doorstep at Oban Harbour into mouth-watering meals for locals and hotel guests alike. Brew & Co provides artisan style coffee for coffee lovers and locally brewed ales.

Inspired by nature
Interior designers, Ica, developed interiors influenced by the seascape, with relaxing colours and rich textures. Each room is designed to give guests the ability to immerse themselves in the feel of the surrounding landscape in the comfort of their own room. The natural design contrasts against the sophisticated and modern facilities within the room. Materials used in the rooms were developed with local craftsmen and artists, to truly give guests a sense of place.“Argyll is Scotland’s Adventure coast and Oban provides the ideal base to explore everything it has to offer. It’s great to see the initial investment that the council has made is attracting further capital. Town centre improvements have made it more attractive for visitors and residents, while new transit berthing and maritime visitor facilities are currently under construction. The Perle Hotel will broaden the range of accommodation on offer and we hope it will help to attract more visitors to this wonderful area.”
