Stayed in June 2014, 2 x adults, 2 x kids 7 & 5. We were in room 3 on level 5. Quality 2 bedroom apartment, clean, and most importantly WARM. Heated flooring and heated towel rails.

I stayed at Breakfree Waterfront for two nights during the Winter Festival, but managed to get a great winter rate as I booked in advance. What a bargain at less than US$120 per night! The studio was large, light-filled, stylish, and spotlessly clean; had incredible unobstructed views of Lake Wakitipu and the Remarkables; and its own huge private terrace. The... More

We (family of 4 adults and 1 child) stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment at Breakfree the Waterfront. The best apartment hotel I have stayed so far. Everything was brand spanking new and done very tastefully right in front of the Wakatipu lake. Spacious, modern, practical and user friendly. Very friendly staff and reasonable prices. Couldn't ask for... More

Queenstown is one of those places that I imagined as pristine and just beautiful... And that's exactly what I got, from the day I arrived in this accommodation. The balcony of our suite is just across Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables as a backdrop. The suite itself was clean and modern with modern conveniences. I even got to park my... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 children and all loved it. It is located within very easy walking distance to the town centre and gondola station, and has a view across the lake to the beautiful Queenstown Gardens. It was a real pleasure to sit at our dining table for breakfast every morning watching all the activity... More

I booked at Breakfree based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. It is well located and within easy walking distance of the town centre which is a big bonus. The lounge and kitchen area is very comfortable. However after those two positives the rest is very average. The bedrooms are very small, nearly claustrophobic the bathrooms are only made... More

I didn't know what to expect with this one as it was booked by my agent; we had been to Queenstown before and I didn't enjoy it as it is really touristy. But this place changed my whole view of the place and I wished that we were had been able to stay more than one night. The location is... More

We found Breakfree to be a really family friendly accommodation solution as the proximity to town is excellent as you are close enough to walk to all the restaurants and shops but you're not in amongst all the backpackers and nightlife. We requested a renovated room after reading other Tripadvisor reviews and the room was modern with a fireplace. I... More

This is the PERFECT spot to stay while in Queenstown. Within walking distance of Queenstown activities and eateries AND an outstanding view. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/1bathroom apartment. It had a covered parking, a fireplace, heated floor in the bathroom, a well supplied kitchen, great wifi connection, and laundry facilities. Our only complaint was the street noise-people returning to... More

Stayed one night in March 2014. Arrived without a booking and managed to get an apartment on the 3rd floor, great views of the lake and activities. Room was great, had 2 bedrooms/bathrooms and was comfortably furnished. We will stay here again when we return to Queenstown. Manager was most helpful.
