“Great apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Once of the best places we stayed while in NZ. Very large 2 story, 2 bedroom apartment, with washing and drying facilities. Modern and clean. Undercover parking. Great views of the lake. Its a 5min drive into town, and a good 25-30min walk into town though, so be prepared to factor this in.

We stayed here with friends for 6 nights last week. The views and location were great. The size of the communal area and rooms were pretty good- there were 6 of us staying. There were plenty of heaters and electric blankets. Reasonable price. HOWEVER...we had only 6 very small bath towels to share between 6 of us for the whole week. The rooms were never serviced and the towels were never changed. We had to buy more toilet paper ourselves! Beautiful views, good value, but totally ignored the whole time we stayed.

Kia Ora and thank you for taking the time to post your feedback following your recent stay at Breakfree the Point .

I am pleased that you were satisfied in general with the accommodation, with the exception of servicing of the apartments.
I have posted below our servicing policy, which is available on our website terms and conditions.
It is unfortunate that you were not aware af this at your time of booking

"If your booking is for a BreakFree Hotels, Resorts and Apartments property your booking does not include room servicing unless your stay is for eight (8) nights or more in which case your room will be services on the fourth (4th) day of your stay".

These are extremely spacious apartments, well laid out and very comfortable indeed. Very clean and well furnished. We stayed mid winter and the apartments are very well heated, plus electric blankets on all beds (which were very comfortable). The views are probably the best I've ever experienced in accommodation. The management are friendly and helpful. Much is made of the steep driveway but it's perfectly negotiable by any competent driver. The accommodation seems to be very family orientated and we had no problems with noise from other units. We would definitely stay here again. One will never tire of watching the sun rise & set over the mountains. Savour the moment.

Room Tip: None, all seem good.

This was the first place we stayed in New Zealand & we were completely blown away! It was a quick drive from the airport - the only thing that was unpleasant was the turn to get on the property. It's pretty scary but luckily there wasn't much traffic while we were there. It's ridiculously steep & you can't really see if anyone's coming. We got there around 10:00 a.m. after a 30 hour flight & the front desk lady was really polite. She said they could have a room ready in an hour or so. So after a quick drive to town & back we were pleasantly surprised to see we got a 3 bedroom apartment instead of the 2 bedroom we booked. Very spacious & clean with a beautiful balcony & view of Lake Wakatipu. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. It's a nice 30 minute walk into town. We'll definitely stay here again when we return to Queenstown.

It was the time of year where there are lots of young guys pitching together in accommodation and so when they get drunk and make their way home at 2 am it can wake you up. The accommodation was comfortable although we found information lacking and the reception not always attended. The parking bay is a long way from the entrance and getting bags to and from your room was a chore....but the views made up for it all and it was nice and warm. I gave it very good as the views and general location was great. Wouldn't book there again...would try and find somewhere where there was an attendant all night who can get rid of noisy tenants.

Room Tip: If you like your sleep then maybe a family only place would be better or ear plugs if you go here.

Kia Ora and thank you for taking the time to post your feedback following your recent stay at Breakfree the Point .

I am pleased that your stay was comfortable despite some noisy neighbours. This can be a issue on the rare occasion during ski season. A issue such as this can be resolved straight away with a quick call to reception. We are always available 24 hours a day.

Reception is available 8am to 5pm, after this, there is always someone on site to attend to your needs. On the odd occasion, the office is unattended during the day, the staff member on duty is usually preparing rooms for the days arrivals. By simple picking up the phone located at reception you will be transferred to the staff member who is happy to return to reception.

Thank you once again for sharing your comments.
