“Great Location”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We stayed here for 7 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The location is perfect. Great views and an easy 30 minute walk or 5 minute drive into Queenstown. The apartment was spacious and self contained which is an added bonus when your staying for 7 nights.
The heater upstairs in the main living area didn't work for the first 2 days and then strangely started to work. Comfortable warm beds and great heating downstairs.
The fire alarms went off every time we opened the oven door. Didn't bother using the oven after the first night because of this. The noise from neighbouring rooms was a negative for us. Overall was a good stay.

For any one that want to have a good break and holiday this is the place to stay, our Host/ manager was very informative on every aspect of attraction and site seeing tours for Queenstown. The accommodation was the best they cater for Mum and Dad and the kids too, having your own laundry and Kitchen make it all worth while

Room Tip: All rooms have a fantastic view of the lake and the Remarkables

We were a group of 10 with kids, so hotels were off the agenda - too cramped, no cooking facilities. Breakfree the Point was perfect. One large 3 bedroom apartment and one smaller two bedroom. We congregated in the larger one which could accommodate us all for dinner and evenings. The apartment was well-equipped with cooking utensils, crockery, saucepans etc.

Beautiful views from every room; comfortable beds; good heating. Generally quiet. A longish walk to town (20-30 mins) but we had cars. Easy drive to ski fields and other attractions. Staff friendly and helpful. One service mid-stay, which was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.

Two small negatives: the internet (not provided by the hotel itself, but by a third party - and not free) is incredibly slow, if not impossible to log onto, in the evenings (presumably when many people are trying to do so. Having paid $45 for a week, not being able to use it at peak times was frustrating.

The smoke alarm went off whenever the oven door was opened.

But otherwise, all good - we would come back here.

Room Tip: The bigger apartments are the most spacious.

We spent three nights here as a base for Queenstown. The apartment itself, over two floors was spacious, clean, quiet and with fabulous views of the lake and the Remarkables mountains and the night sky, from the balcony on a clear crisp evening. At the bottom of the hill that the hotel is on, is a walk around the lake, either into Queenstown or back out toward the Airport and Frankton. It is a bit of a walk, about half an hour but pleasant and not difficult. The distance from Queenstown centre is one of the few downsides, particularly if you want to visit bars or restaurants without the risks of driving afterwards .... but really a minor problem.

The apartments are not serviced during your stay unless you are there for a week or more (from memory) and some materials are only provided in very small numbers. We were there for three nights but the coffee was only sufficient for two mornings coffee - the extra cost of an extra day would have been nothing and it is for these little detail points that I have not given this hotel a max score. Generally good value just a couple of small tweaks would have made it perfect; that said would probably still stay there again but would know what to expect. No free WiFi - a bit of a disappointment but common problem throughout NZ (a bit out of step with the rest of the world in this respect) - paid WiFi available but .... ouch what a price!

This has to be the quietest place we have ever stayed, maybe we got lucky that not many other apartments were occupied but it was really peaceful. No traffic noise or people banging doors no elevators its perfect. Yes it is a little out of town, took us 22 minutes to walk in along the lake front was a fantastic view all the way. The driveway is steep but easy to manage as there are turning bays. If you have a car its a quick drive to town centre. We stayed in Apartment 4 which was a 3 bedroom although we were only to use two (as we booked a 2 bed unit). The apartment was really spacious, well equipped only thing missing was pepper & salt so please take or buy your own if your cooking. The rooms had comfy beds and some had electric blankets. The heater in the living area took a long time to heat up but once it did the room was perfect. We enjoyed watching the boats going past & the lights in the evening. Would recommend staying here, especially if you can get a lake view.

Room Tip: Request a lake view,

WOW, was our first impression, we had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom 2 storey apartment, the view was magnificent you could sit there all day and look out over the lake. Apartment very spacious, well equipped with everything you needed. Very clean & comfortable. Sorry we were not staying longer. Only negative would be steep driveway, but didnt worry us. Not far from town you could walk along lake take you about 20mins, or 1km by car. If we ever come back to Queenstown would stay here again.

Firstly, the hotel manager Craig is the best man in the world in this business. Very warm & hospitable people, all facilities provided as listed and yes you can expect clear and honest advise on attractions & things to do. The views from the room are breathtaking. In short just book this hotel if you're staying in Queenstown, you won't go wrong.
