“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was large, very clean and comfortable and not over-priced. The location is a little bit away from shops etc, but close to a free tram ride to the market or shops. The little Indian restaurant next door is also excellent.

It's in the 'colourful' part of Adelaide CBD but a good price and friendly staff. However, on Friday and Saturday it's very loud with people going in and out and having parties so it's no good for families. The common areas could also use a good hose out

Room Tip: Top floor anyway from the lift

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay, we appreciate your feedback.
Although we have many families enjoy our hotel, we appear to have missed the mark in a couple of areas. I will discuss the shortfalls noted with our management team. The arctic spell of winter we recently experienced had been challenging for our team with leaves blown through the area, that said with the recent spring weather experienced we are pleased that the outdoor areas are looking tidy again.
If your travel plans see you return to our city, please don't hesitate to contact me directly as I would like to welcome you back to show your family can have a wonderful stay 'in house' with us.
Sincerely

Price compares well with competition for 2 bedroom apartment but you find out why when you get there. The rooms are tiny which is ok for a short time if you are disciplined. Everything else is to a satisfactory standard.

It is nice to read you found the property good value, however the apartment you found to be small for your needs.
We do indeed have a veriety of accommodation styles with our Premium apartment being the largest.
I hope we may have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future and show you we can indeed exceed your expectations.

Stayed at Breakfree for 8 nights & stayed in a 2 bedroom room and then a studio apartment. Both rooms were basic and perfect for my needs and provided me with a comfortable stay. The hotel staff were all very friendly and tried their best to accommodate my needs. The location of the hotel was walking distance to the casino, convention centre, Rundle Mall and Hindley St which is buzzing with activity, particularly on a Friday & Saturday night. The price of the rooms were reasonable and there is free wifi in the foyer of the hotel. There is free parking around in the side streets overnight, so don't feel obligated to pay for on site parking.

Room Tip: Top floor was a bit noisy from air-conditioning, 2nd floor was quiet. Hindley St fronted apartments...

Thanks to all the team at "Breakfree Adelaide" We stayed a week went north for a week and came back for 2 nights The staff were exceptionally helpful, most professional and kindly looked after our gear while we went walking in the Flinders Ranges . Thank you The apartments were clean, well appointed and all facilities excellent. The building sites outdoors and the "fun" of the locals on Saturday night did not in anyway spoil our stay. We were very close to
the amenities of the CBD a walk away to buses, trams and restaurants, and shopping.And, there was free wifi in the foyer Great to keep in touch with family.
Thanks to all Jenny and Alex

4 of us stayed at BreakFree Adelaide in 2X2 bedroom apartments for 2 days while in Adelaide for a Conference. The apartments were spotless and very well appointed. The staff were polite, friendly and very helpful. The secure parking is great and as the apartments were close to the tram and bus there was no need to use the car to get around.
I have stayed there on 4 occasions and don't even think about looking for somewhere else now if I'm going to Adelaide as the apartments are such good value for the reasonable charge.
I would definitely recommend the BreakFree Adelaide for an overnight or extended stay.

Breakfree was by far the best accommodation/value for money we had during our week trip. We upgraded to the larger two bedroom unit and were very happy with the size, cleanliness and the facilities.

We were two couples in our early 60s, travelling for three weeks together in various types of accommodation to fit a budget, and the Adelaide BF was spot on for the space and facilities to suit our requirements.

We loved the location as we enjoyed the nearby restaurants and nightlife, as well as the daily access to free buses and trams to do sightseeing and shopping, not having to continually take our car.

We were also very impressed with the staff service that was provided on anything that we enquired about. When the dryer was no working in our unit, the staff were very happy to provide access to another room where we could use the dryer. (I was happy to go to a commercial laundry, but the front desk staff and the maintenance man were more than happy to make alternative arrangements for us).

Thank you for your advice on our initial call and the suggestions to make the stay a very comfortable one. We will definitely be back and will recommend to others.
