The Grand Hotel
The Grand Hotel at 484 Princes Highway in Rockdale was rebuilt by Tooth and Company in 1941 to a design by Rudder and Grout.
The large and imposing circular brick facade with in built verandahs and strong horizontal lines make good use of the small corner site. The style of the building is similar the Union Hotel in Newtown and the Rosebery Hotel in Rosebery.
