Deckers Group, the Rochdale-based hotel, restaurant and pub operator, is the new owner of the Best Western Pennine Manor hotel near Huddersfield in West Yorkshire.
The three-star modern, mostly purpose-built hotel was developed around a farmhouse and opened in 1990.
It occupies an elevated position in the lower parts of the Pennine Hills just two miles from the M62 junction.
The hotel is a popular destination for dining, functions and wedding receptions.
It provides 31 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 61, a bar, and a 100-seat restaurant that divides up into two meeting rooms that can take 16 or 50 delegates theatre-style (with the larger section able to accommodate 100 at a banquet).
The self-contained Branson meeting room on the first floor can hold another 132 guests theatre-style on the first floor and has its own bar counter, servery and kitchen.
A large car park and a helicopter landing pad are offered within the hotel's 2.39 acre grounds.
Deckers already owns the Royal Toby and Crimble restaurant venues in Rochdale, Deckers restaurants in Sale and Bowden, the Trafford Water Sports Centre, the Watermillock restaurant and function venue in Bolton, Harleys Bar in Glossop, and the Plough and Flail pub in Mobberley.
The Leeds office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £1.95m.
