In addition to a rerender to the front of the building, a new lighting system will be installed, designed to enhance the architectural design of the building. Meanwhile there will be full insulation as well as new windows and balconies for sea-facing rooms.

The hotel will work with local businesses, including J Davies Building Limited, which has worked on a number of projects with The Grand, such as the recent refurbishment of the Victoria Lounge, Terrace and Bar.

General manager at The Grand, Andrew Mosley, said: "The Grand is one of Brighton’s most treasured icons with a well-known and storied history. Once completed, the restoration of the façade will not only return the hotel to its former glory, but firmly establish The Grand as one of the landmark destinations on Brighton’s famous seafront."

The Grand is working closely with Brighton Council and conservation groups to safeguard the heritage of the building and will restore the hotel with materials selected for longevity.

Chair of the economic development & culture committee at Brighton & Hove City Council, councillor Alan Robins, added: "I am confident the restoration of The Grand will help to continue the increase in overnight visitors to the city and give the tourism economy a further boost."
