The rooms are very big and confortables, in fact you have a big apartment with terrace, bbq facilities and swimming pool. Great value for money! Particularly adapt for couples and families as it is quiet

Great time in Cairns! The accommodations and view were excellent. The location was ideal with the shops along the Esplanade and the Night Markets. The lagoon, a salt water pool close by was beautiful and was used by many people. We would definitely go again.

Highly recommend BreakFree. Location is a short distance from Reef Terminal and great restaurants. Go for a room with a view of the harbour. Staff friendly and helpful. Access to everything to make it your home away from home.

The location of this complex is excellent. A short stroll to the marina for the Reef trips and multiple dining choices of all levels you may want . Great to walk along the boardwalk everyday. Walking distance to supermarket, movies and shopping. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.

Good comfortable hotel. Clean good facilities. Only downside was loud fan noise from other buildings all night and construction going on outside so 6am wake up call with Jack hammers and drilling etc. Ok for heavy sleepers!

The hotel was really good, clean and convenient. Could not fault it. Will visit again. The price was competitive too. We relaxed at night outside in the courtyard. Just what we needed. Would have stayed longer but we had to return home. WE WILL BE BACK !

The rooms were very clean and roomy. The location is excellent. Only downside was that the washing machine was out of order but there was a laundry that could be accessed on site. No cooking facilities which was no problems at all due to the fact that we could go to one of the many food outlets or restaurants located...

My partner and I just got back from a quick weekend getaway to Cairns, and this place was the perfect spot to stay. We decided not to hire a car this time as it was a quick trip, but we didn't need one here, it is right in the middle of town close to everything. It is straight across from...

The service was great, the room was spacious and clean. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in from the hotel. The shower/spa was lovely. Location was prefect. Food and shops right on the door step. Only problem was it wasn't sound proof, you can hear everything that happens in the hallway and the doors are loud...
