Travelling to Oban on the west coast of Scotland is a joy. Around three hours by car, coach or train from Glasgow or Edinburgh and less than 2 hours from Stirling, the scenic journey is a memorable part of a visit to this bustling seaside town.
Oban is easily reached from Central Scotland by taking the A82 which skirts the west side of Loch Lomond. Then either via Tyndrum or follow the A83 over the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ through Inveraray. Both journeys take between 2 and 3 hours, although you may be tempted to stop several times to admire the scenery. We do not have onsite parking but there are a number of car parks nearby.
We are located on Station Road which means we are within walking distance from the train station, in fact, you will spot us as you walk through the station doors. There are regular direct trains from Glasgow Queen Street Station
If you are coming into Oban from the other islands, you will see Perle Oban as you embark off the ferry – you can be in your room within minutes.

We are writing to you to give an update regarding Perle Hotels. In compliance with the government‘s announcement, effective Friday 20th March 2020 we shut down all of our restaurants, bars and cafes.
Effective Monday 23rd March 2020, we closed all of our hotels. Our voicemails and emails will be answered, but bear with us if it takes longer than usual to respond. Our website is working as usual.
The COVID-19 situation is very fluid and we are heeding all advice from the government. In light of this, we cannot determine a date when we will reopen, but we hope it is sooner rather than later. We will put out further information on social media and our website as soon as we are permitted to reopen the hotels.
If you have a booking with us that is affected by the closure, we will be in touch and we can guide you on your options. Don’t worry we have relaxed our terms and conditions to give you more options. If you should have any questions, feel free to mail us, as we are available to help you.
This crisis will pass and we look forward to welcoming you very soon. In the meantime, please practice social distancing, so that we can all get together sooner!
We hope you, your family and friends remain safe and well.
Your Perle Team
