We had the beach front appartment and the view of the beach was amazing! But the hotel decor needs updating and there is no airconditioner. Hotel staff were very friendly and accomidating. Just a short walk to the beach or to the shops.

We had such an amazing view from the balcony - overlooking the beach and up and down the coast. The building is very old and sometimes it was smelly outside our room. Thankfully our room was refurbished so once inside it wasn't a problem. Great to have our own cooking and washing facilities and parking was nice and easy too.... More

Great central location. Great place for families. Wonderful indoor pool area. Friendly and very helpful staff. Location is great to walk to all the central attractions that Surfers Paradise has to offer. Great that it is across the road from the beach.

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.
