Absorbing the sundown after an excellent warm Adelaide day and also seeing it dip into the sea from the 11th floor (bench was regrettably shut on Easter Monday).
It would certainly be great if the roof bar was open every evening of the week – a minimum of when it’s warm sufficient – to offer resort guests somewhere to go during quieter nights and public holidays.
