OK, so this is an older property however it is very clean and well-maintained and has everything that you need. The bed was very comfortable (that's a bit of a rare find!) and the apartment had plenty of room for the three of us. I asked for a room with a great view and wasn't disappointed, looking across the bay,...

We had a Esplanade Room over looking the water with a balcony that was clean and comfortable. The location is the best. Walk to restaurants, hotels, clubs and shopping. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Highly Recommend this Motel for location and price.

While in Cairns, we had a reception staff kindly helped us. The man was able to speak Japanese fluently and we were happy that he talked a lot to us. Also, Night markets and Esplanade were near the hotel. It was very convenience to us. If we have a chance to go to Cairns, we sure will stay at Breakfree...

Love staying at BreakFree have done so twice now over the Easter period. It is central to everything and has great views. The staff on duty are fantastic and very helpful. The rooms are a tad older style but hey you have your own spa to enjoy.

The location was fantastic for our family with reef tours, restaurants and night markets all close to the Breakfree. The lagoon was just across the road from the hotel. The accommodation was clean if a little dated.

It is situated in a very central location. Room is reasonably clean but outdated. A little noisy coming from the shops underneath the building and construction happening nearby. Staff are helpful and friendly.

Great for an afternoon drink on a balcony, with views over the harbour and mountains. Great front desk and general customer service. All our requests were attended to very nicely. The bed was comfy. The unusual bathroom caused a few giggles for our family. We didnt like the noise of the lifts, and the lack of internal staircase.

The place is very near the sea, our room have a good view and very comfortable for us. If you will travel to Carins, this is a good choice. You can take a taxi to the hotel, it's much cheaper than others.

This is my pick when I stay in Cairns. Self contained rooms are good, walking distance to supermarket. On Esplanade so very close to beach, marina, markets, Restaurants - perfect location. Staff and friendly and helpful. Car parking available. Happy to recommend Royal Harbour Resort.

The resort is within walking distance of Cairns CBD and the bustling hub of the Esplanade's restaurants and cafes. The famous Cairns Night Markets are on the hotel's doorstep and the Reef Casino is nearby. BreakFree Royal Harbour offers self-contained one bedroom garden spas with a private courtyard and one bedroom ocean view spa apartments with a private balcony all including kitchenettes, laundry facilities, spa, air conditioning, internet access, ironing facilities, hair dryer, digital TV and a VHS/DVD player. From the level two pool deck, guests can enjoy views of the ocean, Cairns Lagoon and the passing parade of marine vessels heading out to the Great Barrier Reef. Guests can enjoy recreational facilities including a swimming pool with sun deck and shade, gymnasium and BBQ facilities. Cairns is a city of many moods. The crisp clear air of its mornings, the tropical warmth of its days, as well as balmy nights lit by the moon shining over Trinity Bay offer an unmatched appeal and BreakFree Royal Harbour is the place to enjoy it.
