“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We had a three day family reunion/birthday celebration, four families stayed here. Everyone was happy about their 2 or 3 bedroom apartments. The rooms were clean all had great views, good parking and lift access. It was quiet. Terrific location near to ANU and City Center. Coffee shops across the street. We would have liked to stay longer.

One of the best accommodations in Canberra, great location, great views, smart TV, 2 bathrooms, complimentary parking, everything you could possibly want from an accommodation. Friendly staff, excellent value for money, quiet

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake or the CBD both have great views.

I paid for a one bedroom but was upgraded to a high floor two bedroom apartment with nice city skyline views. The apartment was spotless, warm, comfortable and and had a fully equipped kitchen. Check in was seamless and wifi was just $10 for 24 hours with a small portable device that was simple to use and worked the whole time. Other places I've stayed charge $25 for two hours worth of wi-fi so this price and reliability was welcome.
Parking was free and there is a footbridge right outside that connects with Lake Burley Griffin. I was able to walk all the way to the Portrait Gallery.
Just one issue - the shower didn't work (pushed/pulled the button but it didn't budge) - but I had a bath instead.
Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: City view rooms are way cheaper and have nice morning sun in winter

Thank you for taking the time out to write this review.
It is nice to know that our staff know Canberra well, and were able to help you out when you needed it.
Our pool is heated to 28 degrees all year round, but you'd have to be brave to swim in Winter with the cold days.
We hope that when you return to Canberra that you will chose to stay at BreakFree Capital Tower.

This apartment is a perfect plce for people travelling to Canberra. Huge apartment, very clean with spacious kitchen which has almost everything for cooking and highly recommended for long stay. Very comfortable lounge area, with dining table and a balcony which I prefer whenever I stay in hotel. Bedrooms are spacious as well as bathrooms. Great location because its in the heart of CBD. A three minute walk to lake Burley Griffin which is a perfect place to jog and or unwind. There's coffee shops accross the road for an express breakkie. Hotel rate is just right for its location and good sleep.
My husband and I alwAys chose breakfree whenever we travel to Canberra because of the wArmth and friendly treatment from the staffs and management who are always makes that we are home away from home.
We will definitely stay here again next time.

Loved it.

It was literally a two bedroom apartment - with a massive lounge room, kitchen bathroom, hallway, etc - for the price of a motel room. Bargain.

Bed was comfortable, queen, with quality bedding, and no problems.

Everything else was clean, polished, modern, great heating (it's Canberra!) so no complaints.

Check in (with the every efficient ?Grace?) was lovely. Though if you have a very late check in you could be screwed. So be warned. No one may be there.

The only complaint is the brown carpet in the rooms looked tackey. But it was clean.

So will be back.

Room Tip: Check opening hours for check in
