Michael Easton, associate director of JLL's hotels and hospitality group, said: "Having generated good levels of interest we are delighted to have completed the transaction with Mosum and wish them well with their first hotel acquisition."

Shepherd and Wedderburn acted as legal advisers on the sale of all three assets.
