“Great place and best holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2010

We have just gotten back from 5 nights at Breakfree French Quarter Resort. I must say after reading all the negative reviews about this resort I was starting to wonder what I had got my family into. However, the place was so great and the location excellent. My family and I haven't had a holiday for 3 years and Breakfree French quarter was the best place. The rooms were big enough to semi self cater, however a short stroll down Hastings street catered for all types of food. The beach across the road was so convenient and then we would come back to the resort to soak and relax in the pool. We have a 3 year old child and the rooms were big enough for them to have their own space. The laundry facilities in the room were great. Best time had for all.

The apartment was very nice. There were many facilities available to us and the location of the place was great!!
the negative thing was the staff. they could be a little more helpful to their customers. for example, the first day they just gave us the key and told us it is left, right, right, left or something. of course we were lost and i had to go back and ask him again and again he didn't come to show us, he just gave instructions again!!! and the place is huge!!!! no way man!!!!
besides that it was good experience and i recommend to all....

We booked this resort at the very last minute as our usual hotel in Hastings St was booked. We were initally happy to get a rate of about 50% off their advertised rate. The photos of the resort looked really nice but when we got there we were not impressed. The room was very outdated, there was hair in the shower, peanuts on the floor and everywhere smelt awful. It was definately nowhere near the 4* that was advertised. We have stayed in much nicer places on Hastings st for less money and will not stay here again.

We stayed at the Breakfree French Quarter for a week in the school holidays. Our 2 bed apartment was great, very clean and had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool area. The bedrooms were fine. The master bedroom had the bathroom in the bedroom which was a bit weird, but OK. The kids loved the lagoon pool (although warning - spa is full of chemicals and gave us a rash). The staff were very helpful and you could even borrow a bucket and spade for your visit. The apartments are right on Hastings Street so it was a quick walk to the patrolled end of Noosa Beach. They are currently renovating (we stayed in a cheaper unrefurbished room), so the prices will go up once it's all complete. But I still think I would recommend these apartments to anyone holidaying in Noosa with young children. We will definitely be going back. All in all, a great holiday!

Paid over $200 per night for what should have cost no more than $70! it was worse than a Fomula 1 or holiday inn!
Rooms smelt awful, cobwebs from ceiling, mould growing on hotplates, Furniture that looked like something from a closing down or garage sale, bed spread with so many pulls, it barely had any threads left..

Probably nothing more to be said - there are hotels of much better quality for less on Hastings Street.

We stayed at this hotel for a week and was most disappointed with the service and rooms.
The place looked lovely in the brochure, however when we arrived we discovered the rooms to be small and tired looking. We had a 4 month old baby with us and the cot provided was unsafe and looked to be about 20 years old....
No one helped us with our bags when we arrived at 1 am in the morning with very upset children. We also were not advised that the rooms were unserviced and we would have to pay extra for clean towels and rubbish to be collected.
The only positive feature of this hotel was its proximity to the beach.
Would not recommend this place to families.
