The three-star Best Western Talbot hotel in Leominster, Herefordshire, has changed hands for the first time in nearly 20 years.
New owner Manpreet Singh bought the market town hotel off a guide price of £1.35m.
Parts of the Grade II-listed property date back to the 15th century and it retains character details such as heavy beams, exposed timbers and open fireplaces.
It provides 23 en-suite bedrooms, two bars (the Minster and Tudor bars) and two restaurants, the 52-seat Berrington and the 24-seat Claridges's.
The building additionally has five staff rooms, including one with a shower and changing facilities.
The sale was handled by the Cirencester office of Colliers Robert Barry on behalf of Robert Cresswell, who has owned the hotel since 1988.
