A hotel and conference centre in the Black Country has been sold.
The 81-bedroom Ramada in Oldbury has been acquired by Redwings Lodge Group which operates several hotels including a venue under its own brand in Wolverhampton city centre.
The Ramada was put up for sale following a turn around in business performance when former owner and local businessman Gurjit Mahal, purchased it out of administration in 2012.
Charles Jones, senior business agent at consultancy Christie & Co in Birmingham, which sold the premises, said: "The Ramada opened in 2008 and also includes a restaurant and four function rooms which are extensively used for conferences, events and weddings so we knew it would generate a lot of interest once on the market.
"Redwings Lodge is very happy to be associated with the Ramada brand and plans to extend the property, adding new restaurant space and further bedrooms.
"They are also looking to further expand their portfolio within the Birmingham and Coventry area."
The Ramada sold off a freehold at undisclosed price.
