Perle Hotels has been recognised with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade by Her Majesty the Queen.
The Scottish hotel portfolio comprises of the Marmalade and Bosville on the Isle of Skye, the Perle Hotel in Oban and most recently Lochardil House Hotel in Inverness.
The hotel group was also recognised for ‘outstanding’ short-term growth, having seen its overseas sales soar by 172 per cent over the past three years.
Perle Hotels, established in April 2014, is a unique collection of hotels for the discerning traveller and prides itself on offering luxurious, stylish hotels in memorable Scottish Highland locations.
Perle Hotels is experiencing a period of change. The group recently acquired Lochardil House, is undergoing a new extension project at Marmalade Hotel and is developing the Perle Oban wellness spa.
CEO Fasih Rehman said: ‘Ware proud to have been given a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade by Her Majesty The Queen. It is a testimony to the dedication, hard work and passion from each of our team members.
‘From our humble beginnings on Skye, Perle is pleased to be recognised for the growth that the group has achieved. The Queen’s Award is one of the highest forms of recognition that we could receive, and we are honoured to be one of only eight Scottish recipients in 2019.’
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are given to businesses for outstanding achievement in four categories: International Trade, Innovation, Sustainable Development and also for Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility).
There will be a reception at Buckingham Palace to honour all 201 UK businesses who have received an award.
UK Business Secretary Greg Clark added: ‘These awards recognise the innovative products and services being provided by British businesses that are in demand across the world, as well as the sheer determination and hard work that comes with starting and running a business.
‘Many of these winners are small businesses – the backbone of our economy – and we are backing them to grow, increase their productivity and create more jobs and opportunity across the UK.’
