Grand Hotel

Date of photo: c.1900

The Grand Hotel was situated on Station Road. This pub was present by 1869 under the name Albert. Tied to Dawlish Brewery, the name was changed in 1904 to The Grand Hotel. Passed on to Heavitree Breweries in 1926 and closed c.1985. Now demolished and replaced by flats.
I used to go to the grand hotel in 1983. I went back to Dawlish in the 1990s to the railway cafe and was shocked to see only a concrete slab where the Grand used to be. I asked the staff what happened to it, they said they had been there 10 years and had never heard of it. Very sad as they were among the first to have a video duke box. It was a violent town at that time.
