Perle Hotel

Oban

59 Bedroom hotel set on the harbour front in the West Coast town of Oban. The clients brief was to design a luxury hotel which gives guests the chance to relax and switch off from their everyday stresses.  

The building is Victorian in era which gives a wonderful character to the spaces it encloses. Original cornicing, plasterwork and tiles have been found which we aim to preserve and restore to their original beauty. The design of the guestrooms uses a palette reminiscent of the water and waves that are visible out of the large guestroom windows.  Blues and greens in a mix of fabrics from luxurious velvets and leathers to traditional, earthy tweeds and woollens create an atmosphere which is calm, contemplative and elegant.

The dining room reception and lounge will have a grand traditional appearance with contemporary twists that emphasise the theme of water and the local harbour, a theme running throughout this scheme of interiors.
