The Swallow Rose & Crown hotel in Salisbury; The Swallow Springfield hotel in Gateshead and the Swallow Aston Court hotel in Derby will now be operated by Legacy.
Andy Townsend, chief executive of Legacy, said: "We are confident that our work at the Swallow Hotels will be fruitful and our plans are to stabilise the businesses for the staff and customers and then re-position the hotels."
The deal safeguards 100 jobs. The Derby hotel contract runs for five years, the others for three.
