The old Grand Hotel had been incorporated into (mainly modern and very ugly) government offices. In 2020 it was demolished along with the rest of the offices.

It's shown as a hotel on OS maps at least as late as 1957. By the 1992 sheet it's shown as "Government offices". Available sheets in between are insufficiently detailed to draw any conclusions as to an exact closure date.
