“Had the best time!”
Reviewed November 22, 2007

Our stay at Breakfree Wings was for 10 nights in a 'Deluxe One Bedroom Apartment' on the 7th floor.

My husband & I were celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary (and I was 5 months pregnant) and it was a fantastic stay.

The rooms are amazing. So modern, spacious and containing everything you could possibly need during your stay.

We fell in love with the kitchen! (want one like it in our house now haha) Complete with two round sinks, dishwasher, full sized fridge/freezer, microwave and oven/stove top. We had two bathrooms, one ensuite with an awesome huge shower and one off the lounge containing the spa bath/shower and laundry facilities. We had a king sized bed and a huge walk-in waredrobe in our room! Nice lounge/dining area with TV & Stereo. Plenty of storage space. Air con in the bedroom and lounge area and a nice big balcony.

Our room had the "Hinterland View" which is also above the Gold Coast Highway. While it can get quite noisy, if you close the balcony doors it blocks alot of the noise out.

Pink Poodle have a lovely $12 lunch menu which they miraculously can have ready in 10 minutes from when you place your order!! They were so quick and delicious. Day Spa downstairs is lovely and convenient. Pool, BBQ Area & Tennis Court are great!

You can walk everywhere locally from this location which we did most of the time. Easy two minute walk & access to the main beach. Strolled, for about 15 minutes, along the beach to Surfer's most mornings. We did catch a few taxi's back from Pacific Fair & Condrad Jupiters which never cost more than $10. (A bus is about $2 each way. I was also 5 months pregnant and not keen on the bus after our first attempt - bus driver took over before I sat down and I nearly fell.)

The caltex station is right next to the hotel making it very convenient for when you need something quick (like extra laundry powder... or a pie!). There is also a popular little pizza place called Romeo's, which is about a 5 minute walk if you just want to pick up a pizza to take back to your room.

Surfer's Paradise night markets are a must and the 'Zingara' show at Conrad Jupiters is a must. And Hooters is a great place for dinner for the whole family! (Kids eat free on Wednesday's I think it was)

I really do recommend this place for couples, families and anyone looking to stay in a fully self-contained apartment away from the hustle & bustle of the main city but still close enough to walk there.

I know we will stay again!

Was really looking forward to seeing the Gold Coast after we fell in love with Brisbane.... to be honest - i was slightly worried that our apartment was going to be naff but to my utter disbelief (i actually was lost for words when i walked through the door) the apartment was soooooo cool!!!! We stayed in a one bedroom deluxe for 4 nights. It was about 3/4 of the way up the building with an excellent view of the mountains - the balcony was huge spanning the living room and bedroom! The mountain view is above the very busy gold coast highway but it did not disrupt our sleep any! The bathroom is quite big with a large shower - and the second bathroom had a spa bath with shower unit above it (his and hers bathrooms! haha!)!

You can walk to anywhere from here - well...we did...and for august - it was pretty warm - get a good map and you'll have no problems! Safe area to walk about day and night - everyone we met was very friendly! Hotel staff were really helpful! You can book day trips from the hotel to the theme parks - wet and wild is a must! I hate things like that but at the finish up i didnt want to go home!

You can order a delivery from various resturants/ takeaways to your room.... dont get a mexican - cost us 30 quid and it was rubbish! Apart from that - the rest was good!

To conclude - excellent play to stay and as a result we now want an apartment in the area!

We stayed at Breakfree Wings for 5 nights just before Indy, so Surfers was extremely busy. The hotel is a bit out of the main part of Surfers, so if you don't mind a 10-15 minute walk to Cavill Ave it is in a great location. A bit noisy with a fire station down the road, but you soon get used to it.

The hotel was also about 2 blocks from the beach and had plenty of restaurants and pubs around, including the Pink Poodle down the bottom.

The room itself was fantastic, we had a one bedroom deluxe apartment. Great size, with a king-sized bed and two bathrooms, one with a spa bath and washing machine/dryer. The kitchen was gorgeous and had a dishwasher and the lounge/dining areas were a great size. Our view from the wide balcony was of the Nerang River - we could just glimpse the beach out the opposite side.

The pool/spa area of the hotel was unreal - complete with rocks, waterfalls, sand and barbecue facilities. The hotel also had a tennis court, a gym and a sauna.

Definitely recommend this hotel to those who don't mind being a bit out of Surfers!

We loved the 2 bedroom apartments here ! Our flight from Kuala Lumpur arrived late night. By the time we checked into the apartment, it was close to 2am. Someone waited for us at the registration counter to hand us the keys.

With our 2 sleepy boys and luggage in tow, we were pleasantly suprised at how clean & spacious the aprtment was. Rooms were lovely. Kitchen was complete. The welcome pack Wings provided (incl detergent and diswashing liquid) was enough to last us the 4 days.

Location was great ! About 3 minutes from the bus stop.

Our flight to Kuala Lumpur took off at 11pm. Since we had to check out at noon, the staff kindly allowed us to store our large suitcases in their office until we left for the airport.

Definately recommend this place for families.

My husband and I stayed at Breakfree Wings for six nights in late July.

We arrived after check-in was closed and after wrestling with the safe box I managed to get our room key out and we were in.

the complimentary secure parking we received was a nice surprise and made life really easy as there was loads of space and we could park where we liked which was right by the lifts!

Our one bedroom apartment was on the 4th floor on the south side of the building which was probably the most disappointing thing about the whole experience, as the apartment didn't get any sun and was facing the Gold Coast Highway.

I would still recommend this property but ask for an apartment on a high floor or on the north side of the building

The apartment itself was really big with modern decor and fittings. It was also very clean and tidy.

Heating/cooling was from a heat pump in the living area. It was a bit noisy and would only go as low as 20 degrees celcius but this may change in summer.

The kitchen had everything you needed including storage containers for flour, sugar etc.

The bathroom was huge and had a double sink which was handy. There was also a washing machine and dryer in there.

The bedroom was big enough with a large walk through wardrobe to the bathroom. The bed was two singles zipped together but for my husband and I used to our pocket spring bed it was perfect as I could toss and turn and not annoy him.

There was a reasonable size balcony with a table and chairs which in the heat of summer would be nice if it wasn't for the constant flow of traffic outside.

We did check out the recreational facilities and they looked fine. There are four bbqs there for guests use with outdoor table and chairs. The pool also has lots of lovely padded sun loungers around it.

We also went to the restaurant downstairs and the food and service where great. If you are a beer drinker then this is the place for you as the selection was pretty amazing.

There is a Thai restaurant down the road towards Surfers Paradise that did beautiful food and is BYO. Also the pizza place, Romeos, just a little bit further in the same direction does great takeway pizza and ribs.

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days for our Honeymoon in March 2006. The hotel was lovely, very modern, clean, comfortable and MASSIVE! We had a balcony overlooking the ocean, we requested a view when booking as we were on our honeymoon. The only negative thing was that we had a weird bed - it was 2 single king beds joined together by a mattress protector. We could feel the join in it which was a bit uncomfortable. But everything else was LOVELY!

Our three bedroom apartment must have been designed by a male because the two bathrooms were grouped together rather than the second queen bedroom having an en suite. Only shampoo and soap were supplied, (no other toiletories) and a hair dryer was 'by request'! Pool towels were not available and we were told to use the bath towels provided . Our toaster did not work and a replacement was sought and provided the second day
We were on the 11th floor facing North but still received a lot of highway noise.
The staff were on the whole pleasant, the apartment was clean and the kitchen well provided, but we propably will not stay again.
