Grint and his family opened the luxury Rigsby’s Guest House in Hertford, England, in April 2011.

‘Harry Potter’ star Rupert Grint has closed his boutique hotel in Britain after it made just $ 2,900 profit in four years.

Grint, 27, shot to fame playing Ron Weasley in the hit Hollywood adaptation of the J.K. Rowling series.

The actor and his family opened the luxury Rigsby’s Guest House, which cost $ 220 per night, in Hertford, England, in April 2011.

But it has now been forced to close because it was not “making enough money,” reported Mirror Online.

A message confirming the closure was posted on the hotel’s Facebook page by manager Morris Cockman.

“I would like to thank everybody for your support over the years,” Morris added.

The Grint family are now reportedly considering converting the property into apartments to rent or sell.

Grint’s parents Nigel and Joanne bought the property for $ 1.4 million in 2003.
