The following passage below from the Shields Daily Gazette of 1890 seem to suggest that this was a different hotel, as in 1890, this "Grand Hotel" would have been known as the "Cliftonville Hydro."

 

Shields Daily Gazette 19 December 1890.

HOTEL DESTROYED BY FIRE. 20,000 DAMAGE.

The "Grand Hotel, adjoining the jetty at Margate, was entirely destroyed by fire, yesterday morning. The inmates escaped in their night-clothes uninjured, except a barmaid, who was hurt by jumping from a window. The loss will probably amount to 20,000.
