Great property in a convenient location. Far enough away from Cavill mall to be quiet but close enough to lots of great cafes and eateries. Easy access to the beach across the road and friendly staff.

We had a family weekend away with my elderly parents and they loved the location. Clean, staff friendly helpful, great location amazing views. Not all apartments are the same. We stayed in 12B and it was refurbished.

Great spot, right on the beach. Rooms are getting a bit dated and tired. No air conditioning was a bit of a shock but ceiling fans were adequate. If you get strong winds from the "wrong" direction, the handrails vibrate and make sleep nearly impossible (thankfully this was only for one night) Some windows will not lock and aluminium frames...

We enjoyed our stay it was close to the beach and shops. The receptionist, Misty was outstanding, very helpful and friendly. The rooms could do with an update the fittings were old, dusty curtains, mouldy showers etc. The ocean view was lovely if you were in the right room, the ones around the back should be much cheaper.

Where to start? Our GC holiday was pre booked and paid for in JUNE 2016. We have been holidaying in Surfers Paradise regularly over the last 20 plus years and have always chosen the high rise apartments right on the waterfront with ocean views. On many occasions we have gone with the breakfree affiliated group and this is the first...

Great location, great layout of rooms, however a little disappointed with the cleanliness or the rooms - also there were several broken items in our room. Ocean views are fantastic, comfortable bedding & lounge.

Walking into the room 30B with the expectation i had from the website we were horrified, disappointed, gutted. The room was nothing like the website. I have nothing else to say but UTTER FILTH. The images speak for themselves. After speaking to the front desk we were moved into another room.

I can't say enough good things about the staff there, friendly, welcoming and always ready to assist. The hotel itself is a little dated, however we found everything clean and tidy. The location is superb, you cannot get a better location without paying a kings ransom. Only drawback was that our unit didn't have air conditioners, we knew this beforehand...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laying claim to some of the best views on the Gold Coast, BreakFree Imperial Surf offers quality accommodation at a reasonable price. Located in the heart of Surfers Paradise overlooking the beach, all apartments have ocean views, some with sweeping panoramic vistas of the Gold Coast hinterland and surrounds. Perfect for a weekend getaway, mini-break or beachside family holiday, accommodation options include one and two bedroom apartments with large balconies, fully-equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, TV and security access. The resort offers a range of leisure facilities including a full-size tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, BBQ area and tour desk. Only a short walk will have you in Cavill Avenue where you can hit the shops or dine at one of the many cafes or restaurants. When the sun sets the Surfers Paradise nightlife takes over and all the nightclubs are only a short walk away. With the surf-patrolled beach directly opposite and the retail, dining and entertainment hub of the Gold Coast literally on the doorstop, the resort offers choice - whether you want to laze in the sun or party until the sun comes up.
