Rupert Grint closes his hotel

British actor Rupert Grint has closed down his hotel business due to financial problems.

The Harry Potter star opened Rigsby's Guest House in his hometown of Hertford, England in 2011, but it struggled to make money, with official documents showing the business only brought in $3,000 profit by the end of 2014.

Grint, who is the sole shareholder of the hotel, closed it last year (15) and manager Morris Cockman thanked patrons for their support in a post on the venue's Facebook.com page.

Grint opened Rigsby's Piano Cafe restaurant around the same time as the hotel, and it is still running.

His father is director of both businesses.
