Perle Hotels, the owner and operator of three hotels on the Isle of Skye, is selling The Broadford Hotel to enable it to focus on its other properties. 

The 400-year-old 11-bedroom hotel, up for sale for £725k, is believed to be the original home of Drambuie with the formula for the liqueur - later known by it's brand name - being passed to the hotel's owner in the 18th Century. 

The hotel includes a lounge, bar and a meeting or function room and has planning permission for an extension to create an additional 18 bedrooms and leisure facilities.  

Perle Hotels, which bought The Broadford in 2013 with Portree hotels The Marmalade and Bosville Hotel, intends to use the money from the sale to continue the development, extensions and improvement of the latter two properties.  

Alistair Letham of Colliers International, the agent handling its sale said: “While the Broadford Hotel can trace its origins as far back as the early 17th century, the current property, which does display the Scottish vernacular architecture with crow step gables, has been significantly upgraded and refurbished to create a stylish country-style hotel of appeal to the increasingly discerning 21st century traveller and visitor. 

“It is well located on the perennially popular Isle of Skye, adjacent to the main road that leads from the Skye Bridge to Portree. With its much improved and upgraded facilities, it has proved extremely popular and that is reflected in the excellent level of established turnover and profitability that the Broadford Hotel enjoys.” 

Perle Hotels, run by Fasih Rehman, describes itself as 'a unique collection of hotels for the discerning traveller'.
