BreakFree Imperial Surf
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Have just returned from a 6 night stay. This hotel is in a prime location just across the road from the beach. It is also walking distance to shops and restaurants. We caught the local bus to the theme parks and the bus stop was a 5 min walk. This is an older style hotel and we had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 11th floor. The apartment was very spacious and had great views from the large wrap around balcony. We were surprised to find that we had 2 bathrooms which was very handy but the bathroom doors did not have a lock on them which we found a bit strange. The kitchen was well equipped. Generally the apartment was neat and clean but found the furniture to be a bit worn especially the lounge. Overall a very good place to stay, staff were friendly and helpful, decent facilities. Would recommend it to others.

We stayed for 7 nights, it was very roomy our bedroom was very spacious it had an ensuite, plus separate bathroom for the kids to use, other bedroom was quite large, the kitchen was very well equipped and quite big, lounge & dining room had lots of room to move. It was clean and tidy, the only negatives I have is the taps in the shower were broken & fell off, and the sliding doors were sometimes hard to open and close. The beach was across the road and Cavill Avenue was a short stroll which was very nice in the evening. I would recommend anyone to stay there.

Room Tip: If you want a higher floor request it when making your booking

My wife and I had 3 nights at this resort and thought that it was great value for money. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit on the 25th floor in a corner room and the view was excellent. The room was exceptionally large for a 1 bedroom unit and it had been well maintained. You cannot complain when you get an ensuite and a separate bathroom in a 1 bedroom unit.

The check-in was efficient and quick, and the lifts were fast as well. There was never any waiting for a lift. The resort is close to all the action (restaurants and shopping) and we did not have to take our car our of the car park. Everything was in walking distance. The facilities were well maintained i.e outdoor/indoor pool, spa, sauna and tennis court.

The only negatives were there was no internet access or cable television

Overall great value for money and we would definitely return.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room on a higher floor to the southern corner of the resort for excellent views.

You can't beat the lovely views and location of this hotel. The general areas were well kept and neat. Unfortunately our particular unit was not.I can only comment on the particular room we were in and cannot say that other units would be the same or not. We have stayed in a number of Breakfree hotels on this strip and this is the first one we've been disappointed with from when we opened the door. The furniture of THIS particular room was worn, chipped, stained and old. It didn't feel clean at all. Fridge was leaking, shower door didn't shut, no plug for the bath. The owner really needs to invest some money in this room. Felt grotty. It was also disappointing that we were never once greeted as we walked into the hotel. Be aware that there is no air con either.

I'm confused at some of these negative reviews. I stayed here over easter weekend with my girlfriend in a 1-bedroom on the 26th floor. The price was only 138aud a night during one of the busiest times of the year! For that we got a huge fully equiped apartment with breath-taking views. Room was tidy only problem was the dish washer didn't work. Maybe some rooms are a little dated but this place is beachfront with great views and in a central location. After staying in an apartment this big I don't think I could go back to a tiny studio, even if its 5-star.

Location -great right on the water. Bluilding- lovely,nice & clean. Had a room on level 29 with great views BUT our room desperately needs an update, carpets shabby & worn, bathroom off main bedroom needs a make over & the ceiling fans all need a good clean, the one in lounge room was covered in dust & dirt, was not even game to put it on.

Room Tip: higher floors for better views all over water & all over Surfers
