Stayed there for just over a week. Even though I thouroughly enjoyed the views, and the apartment was very spacious, it really needs a facelift, and the beds aren't very comfortable. The single beds were on wheels and moved every time u sat on them. The mattresses and pillows were very poor! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location... More

Breakfree Peninsula is in a great location, not too far from surfers but far enough from the noise and crowds. The room on the other hand the room was dirty, curtains torn and kitchen appliances out dated. I don't mind an older apartment if it saves some money but I probably would have stayed elsewhere if I had known what... More

The rooms are slightly dated and are showing some obvious wear and tear, however the rooms are perfectly neat and clean with outstanding views. There are a number of pools to choose from, which is rather unique, and the gym facilities, although nowhere near what you get at a proper gym, are surprisingly decent with several machines and a larger...

From the moment i opened the door to the apartment, i couldn't believe what i was seeing. Looking straight ahead to nothing but ocean. The apartment was a great size. Well equipped with everything you need, clean and tidy. The check in was simple and the location is perfect. Minutes from Cavill Street, straight opposite the beach, tram stop 100mtrs... More
