Scotland's newest luxury boutique hotel has reopened its doors with a first look at the major renovation project.

The boutique hotel, No.17 The Promenade, secured a six-figure investment from The Cumberland Building Society and is run by owner and entrepreneur Paul Sloan.

The West Highlands seaside town is gaining a growing reputation for its hospitality and food and drink sector and the 19-bedroom, ocean-facing boutique hotel, wil only add to that. Previously named The Wellpark Hotel, has undergone a multi-million-pound renovation.

Owner Mr Sloans also operates restaurant brands across Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Oban. In addition to the No.17 project, The Cumberland also assisted him in the refinance of Oban-based, No.26 by the Sea, whilst also supporting funding for the acquisition of staffing accommodation at the site.

The support provided by The Cumberland equated to 60 per cent of the entire project, which contributed to both the acquisition of the property and the redevelopment.
