El alojamiento

This listing is for the entire Guest House, all for you!
The Bank Guest House is a boutique 3 bedroom guesthouse in the grand old style, seamlessly blending historic charm and elegance with modern comforts and convenience, in one of Glen Innes' signature heritage buildings, the old Bank of New South Wales c.1874.

The Bank is perfectly located in the very heart of town, in the centre of the café and business precinct, and for special occasions, intimate gatherings, small workshops, business meetings or maybe just for a treat, the whole guesthouse can be booked, with a minimum 2 night requirement.

Your booking includes a delicious complimentary self serve breakfast, free Wi-fi, the convenience and security of keyless coded entry to come and go as you please and full housekeeping services.

Polished wood floors, soaring pressed metal ceilings, huge feature windows and birds-eye views over the street all contribute to the ambience.

Relax, work or commune in the many peaceful and comfortable shared areas we have created; spacious light filled lounge rooms upstairs and down, intimate dining areas, a large fully equipped guest kitchen and old style pantry, library area with a selection of books, music & games for you to enjoy, and even a private study.

Upstairs, the Guest House comfortably accommodates up to six guests in three private, beautifully furnished and very comfortable queen bedrooms. All have decorative pressed metal ceilings and spectacular views from large feature windows over the heritage streets of town.
All three are suitable for overnight or longer stays; comfy queen beds with warm fluffy quilts, cosy sitting areas, built in wardrobes, heaters and electric blankets, Wi fi internet and the security of individual key locks on each bedroom door. All three bedrooms share the mezzanine level bathroom, and an extra toilet is located downstairs.

Special requirements or requests? Just ask.

You can also book an individual room, overnight or for as long as you want (see our other listings).

BEFORE YOU BOOK, PLEASE UNDERSTAND The Bank is an historic building with heritage listing. This means:
• All three bedrooms share use of the bathroom & toilet, located on the mezzanine landing, plus an extra toilet downstairs: we ask you to always be mindful and respectful of your fellow guests, you know what we mean!
•The Bathroom is old-style with the shower over the bath.
•The bedrooms are all on the first floor, so you need to be stair-fit
•Heaters are in each room, as town can be cold and there is of course no central heating. Each bedroom also has a heater and electric blanket.
• The Bank aims to be a sanctuary of peace in an otherwise frantic and noisy world. Please enjoy and value this. There are no Televisions or screens, deliberately. None. Really! There is however books, games, music & Wi-Fi……

Other spaces suitable for large gatherings, workshops, retreats, and office spaces both short or longer term are also available in The Bank, please talk to us about your needs.

Servicios y zonas comunes

You can relax, spread out and enjoy yourself anywhere in the entire Guest House!
If you book by the individual bedroom, your door has an individual key lock for your privacy and security.

Atención a los huéspedes

The Bank has been our most amazing home for many years, but we are now so frequently away, we have opened it up as a Guesthouse.
You may meet us, but we absolutely respect your privacy and right to enjoy the many lovely spaces, so we stay in another area of our Bank when we are home (the place is HUGE!)
You will meet our friendly local house keeper, who's in each day. Feel free to have a chat, or quiz her on local knowledge. And like her, we are also at the end of the phone always should you have any questions.

El barrio

Glen Innes is known for it's clean mountain air, lovely rolling New England countryside, glorious town parks (Autumn is breathtaking!), stately heritage-listed buildings, book shops, cafes, boutiques and collectables shops. It is also the gateway to some truly amazing National Parks, and gemstone fossicking!
And we are in the very centre of it all!!!!!
Check out:
-Celtic history: Sunrise and sunset (our favourite) over The Australian Standing Stones, the piper on the balcony of Town Hall every Friday midday, and the many local characters
-A heritage self guided walk around town,to see 30 charming and diverse properties (including of course our Bank)
-the treasure trove that is the Beardies House museum

Further a field:
-World Class truly spectacular National Parks including World-Heritage listed Washpool and Gibraltar Range national parks
-Rich gemstone fossicking (some locals live off this)
-Fishing, bush walking, horse riding
-The villages: drive to Emmaville for some authentic early mining history, Torrington for some wild Australian country
-The beautiful and cultured New England university town of Armidale, one hour south

The huge Visitor Information Centre, a fabulous resource staffed by friendly locals who know everything about the area is well worth a visit for information on absolutely everything!
Check out the website, that's the leader of our local pipe band on home page, quite a local character you likely will run into!

Cómo moverse

The Bank is right in the very heart of town, in the main street.
We recommend the simple pleasure of walking to get around... to the shops and cafes if you turn right coming out of the door onto Meade St, and of course the amazing landscaped Town Park complete with rotunda (picnic, anyone?) if you turn left. You can't miss it!

If you choose to enjoy one of the local hotels for the evening, you will not get lost... They are opposite!

The Beardies History house, swimming pool, skate park and hospital are all a short walk along through the park.

The Visitor Information Centre, a fabulous resource, is a very short walk up Meade St past McDonalds, turn right. Strongly recommend you drop in.

The spectacular Standing Stones (a must see at sunrise or sunset) are a 1.8km (3.6km return) walk straight up Meade St.

The local taxi service can be booked on (
Greyhound bus links Glen Innes to Brisbane, Grafton (East coast) and Sydney daily.

Otros aspectos destacables

Car parking is easy, safe and free on Meade St, directly outside of The Bank.

Our family group of 6 enjoyed a very unique experience at the Guesthouse Bank - it was great, different and very old school. We had an event to attend in Glen and our accommodation was in the perfect location. Shops & supermarkets, cosy pubs, great bakeries and takeaways are all in walking distance. We were lucky enough to arrive in Glen on a Friday at noon to witness the Bagpiper play out the front of town hall - that was a great introduction to this lovely quiet town. We enjoyed strolling around the town and admiring the many historic buildings, drove to Standing Stones and even tried our hand at gem fossicking at the local van park. Cheryl's guesthouse was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfy and inviting. From the high ceilings, restored furniture pieces to the artwork .. it was beautifully decorated. Breakfast provisions were provided which was a lovely touch. Although we didn't formally meet our host, Cheryl's communication via text message was prompt, helpful and much appreciated.

The Bank is a beautiful accommodation option in Glen Innes. The communication with Cheryl made booking seem less. Highly recommend this place!

Great guest house! Love the charm, really enjoyed two nights without TV, we had fun with the variety of board games for a change. Guest house is really clean with ample space for six of us, well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed rooms. Conveniently located for groceries shopping and restaurants. Memorable experience.

We loved our stay at the Bank in Glen Innes. Glen Innes itself is a beautiful town with some great architecture and plenty to do around. The Bank was well located across the road from a great pub restaurant with a roaring log fire and next door to a good coffee shop. We stayed at perhaps the coldest time of the year so spent a lot of the evenings in the lovely warm lounge upstairs. The absence of a tv made for some great family time! Beds were all extremely warm and comfortable and bedrooms well sized. Breakfast provisions were varied and generous. The place was meticulously clean!

The Bank suited our family holiday well. The Historic building with its high ceilings and spacious rooms offered a great ambiance. The shared bathroom was easy to deal with as we were all family but guests booking individual rooms need to be fully aware of this. The master bedroom was large and very comfortable. The beds had lovely pillows. The Venetian blinds in the master bedroom were not perfect at blocking out the street lights at night but they were satisfactory. The second bedroom only had sheer curtains on the side windows so street lights would shine directly into your eyes and with a pub across the road it made privacy an issue and morning light a problem. The third bedroom was very hot as the windows did not open. This would be a major problem if you were a private guest and could not leave the door open for ventilation. The Bank is well located for coffee shops and food outlets. The Bank has good wifi and there is an office room to work in as well as two large sitting rooms. The Kitchen is great and well stocked and we were provided basics for breakfast - plenty of milk, cereal , bread etc. We were deeply concerned about the CCTV in the public areas. On discovering these we wrote to Cheryl and asked that as we had the whole place booked could they be turned off. She assured me that they only work when the alarms are engaged when the house is vacant but still with the red flashing light on them made us all feel like we were being 'watched'. We were not concerned that there was no TV - a good supply of books and CD's is on offer to relax with. I have only given three stars but would give 31/2 if able to. Overall the experience was very good and if Cheryl could fix the minor issue of the windows in the third bedroom and put in block outs I would book the place again for our family visits to Glen Innes as the building is very special and to have those high ceilings and lots of sitting space outside the bedrooms made for a very congenial stay. (still not sure about teh CCTV's though).

Respuesta de Cheryl:
Hi Rose Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The third bedroom window has now been repaired, you may also not have noticed another fully openable window above the door. We will look into the issue you mentioned regarding light in the second bedroom. As these small side windows are very narrow (only 8cm wide) they have not been a concern for previous guests, as the major part of the feature window has a venetian blind. Where fitted, CCTV cameras are only operational for security purposes when the GuestHouse is completely vacant. We are sorry their presence caused you discomfort. We hope to see you again.

Hi,
We are Cheryl & Dan, both professionals with grown up family, and have the most amazing place we call home, a spectacular historic bank building from the 1880's which we have lovingy converted over the last 8 years from a bank to a wonderful home, and now also a separate 3 bedroom guesthouse to share with you. We love this place!
We also both love music (both to play and listen), dancing, great conversation, good food, writing and art, family and friends, all animals and being in nature. We believe in being happy, and sharing it!

We also love airbnb, recently staying in some great places in America and Canada. The whole idea is great, connection with locals, staying in places often not accessable to tourists...

We are often away (so you may not meet us) but when we are home we have our own area in The Bank, so we are not intrusive on you when you stay in the Guest House. We are always at the end of the phone should you need anything.
We encourage you to use all the spaces, relax and enjoy!
