I love old buildings for B&Bs and this one is a classic. Two storey brick plus cellar which is not currently in use. There are 4 entry doors on the ground floor, one at the front, one at the back and 2 on the opposite side to the driveway. The front door opens into the main reception area - a large room for lounge, dining & kitchenette. On the back wall is a large glass panel at centre, a door on the left & passageway on the right that goes through to the large lofty bathroom/laundry at the rear. The stairway to upstairs runs off this passageway. Behind the back wall of the main reception/living area is the Bank Manager's office which is now a good size bedroom with comfortable Queen size bed. The ground floor bathroom/laundry has a shower cubicle, toilet, vanity & spa bath along with a front loader washing machine (dryer?). The back door opens into this room which is not the best for privacy. The layout of this bathroom/laundry is ungainly but it works & we found the shower was very good. The air conditioning on the ground floor was not working when we were there during a couple of hot days in March 2017. Ceiling fans would have helped a lot. Upstairs has a modern split air conditioning system in both bedrooms & the front living room that opens onto the balcony above the footpath. There is another bathroom at the rear upstairs. The upstairs air conditioning system worked well. One upstairs bedroom had a double bed (Queen?) and the other had 2 single beds. Cleanliness was good. Basic meals could be prepared in the kitchenette on the ground floor. Location is excellent. You have Emily's Bistro a few doors away one way for lunches & dinners. The Quangdong Cafe a few doors the other way for breakfast and lunch. Both are excellent. It's easy walking distance to the 3 old pubs on Railway Terrace and opposite is the railway station for Pitchi Ritchi Railway tours. Parking at rear of angle parking out front in the street under the big Pepper tree for shade. This tree was in flower when we were there so the car got covered in blossom. Price does not include breakfast provisions. We loved this B&B and it is highly recommended if you like heritage buildings with modern comfort....apart from the lack of air conditioning downstairs.

Huge place in Quorn. There is a bedroom downstairs and two upstairs with separate lounge rooms and bathrooms which provides important space for extended families. The kitchen was a bit small with no stove, but it was not an issue as we planned meals ahead. We did not meet Vicki but the friendly Sam met us and showed us around the place.

Our stay at the 'Bank' in Quorn was just fantastic. We were met by Daisy who showed us around and provided us with all the information we needed regarding our stay. The Bank is full of history and the rooms and living areas are very comfortably appointed, extremely clean but also retain that feel of a bygone era. We had drinks and nibbles on the balcony and watched the beautiful sunsets. The Bank is located one street behind from the main street of Quorn and easy walking distance to the pubs, local cafes and grocery shops. Quorn itself is a fantastic town that oozes the hustle and bustle of the past as the gateway to the outback and the grandeur of the Flinders Ranges. A great get-away to either relax or have that great adventure. We high recommend a stay at the 'Bank' in Quorn - just a great place to stay!

Three generations of our family had a very pleasant few days in the Flinders Ranges, staying in the Bank building in Quorn overnight for three nights. We couldn't fault the service, they were very helpful.

Met by Sam who was very helpful and arrived promptly to let us in, got us a second set of keys and showed us around. It is in a great location in the middle of lovely Quorn. The bedrooms are comfortable and bathrooms clean. Using the convection microwave to cook pizzas was a challenge. Going to Emmas Bistro just a few doors up the street for coffees and for Sunday lunch is recommended. Climbed Mt Brown and Devils Peak - both also recommended hikes with excellent views.

The SBSA in Quorn was great, we used it as a base to explore the area. Idea for our purposes. Although the building was refurbished, it still retained features you would expect from a property of its age. Thanks a lot!!
