“A standout building”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

It is actually more than a building - there is a place for a different style of architecture to be preserved and this gothic style has an appeal moreso than most modern buildings.
It is both historic and architecturally intersting and is the only building within blocks that stands out.
You only have to look at North Terrace and see what used to be normal and compare it to the modern buildings to know that we should keep some of the better examples.

“One of the historic and very pretty buildings in Adelaide”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This building at the King William Street end entrance to the Rundle mall in a way is anachronistic as other modern buildings make it look out of place. However buildings like this need to be preserved. It dates from late 19th century and was built in a Gothic Revival style. It has to be maintained as there is a lot of gold paint needed. This building is partially occupied by another Adelaide institution, Haig's chocolate shop. Must visit

“Well its a building”

A pretty building with an ace chocolate shop

But nothing really to rave about. Adelaide Arcade is better

“A landmark!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

The Beehive Corner is another landmark where people meet. If you step back from the awnings and look up the building is lovely, but people don't often look up and notice it at all.
