View of metal and vinyl stools in front of a curved linoleum-topped bar faced with tiles. The walls are partially tiled with mottled relief tiles and the flooring is linoleum. The saloon has a wall clock and fans and is lit by lights hanging from the ceiling. There is an ornate cash register on the counter.The Bank Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in November 1911 and sold in October 1980. On completion of rebuilding in August 1941 the hotel was a two storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and an iron roof. The architectural style of the interior is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms. Unlike many of the other hotels rebuilt at this time, the Bank Hotel retains most of its original exterior façade.
