An expanding hotel group has acquired another venue in the Black Country with the purchase of the Ramada in Oldbury.

Redwings Lodge Group already operates five Lodges under its own name, including one in Wolverhampton city centre.

It has now added the 76-bedroom Ramada, buying it from Gurjit Mahal for an undisclosed sum. Mahal bought the hotel out of administration in 2012.

Redwings is planning to add bedrooms and more restaurant space at the hotel, which is 10 years old next year.

It is also looking for other hotel opportunities in the West Midlands to add to its portfolio.

Charles Jones, from agents Christie & Co, 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.”
