Neville Solo - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Always stay here when in Christchurch. The only "negative" was that the reception did not tell me when I put my bag into storage on checking out, that the hotel would be closed that afternoon for a "private function" Everything was locked when I came back at 4pm to retrieve my bag. Phone contact on entrance door and managed to retrieve bag. Should have been told this on checkout and I would have stored my bag at the bus exchange

Kia ora Neville, Thank you for choosing BreakFree on Cashel for your accommodation during your visit to Christchurch. We trust you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your review. We always have staff here that are able to get your bags when required so trust this wouldn't have been an inconvenience for you. Kind Regards, Kim

Over priced. It has lots of new tech at the cost of basics (comfort, sound proofing and comfort)

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Chchbex Couples - 07/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I love this place, I stayed there before it changed names and loved the vibe of the hotel. I enjoyed the quirky features and the in house bar too. Unfortunately our hotel room wasn't what I was expecting this time around. The colored lights only change 1 colour now, the tv was hard to use and there was no guide in our room. The toilet/bathroom door didn't close (it kept rolling open) and when we tried to call reception about this, our phone was broken. When we went to reception, they were not very helpful, didn't ask us how our stay was. When we went for breakfast we mentioned the phone and just said they would have maintenance look at it, didn't ask about anything else. The breakfast was delicious, the bar tenders were lovely and looked at us well. The bed was comfortable too. The room features (which was the entire reason I chose this hotel) really disappointed me on this trip.

Kia ora Rebecca, Thank you for choosing BreakFree on Cashel for your accommodation during your visit to Christchurch. We appreciate your feedback and I will have maintenance look into the issues you experienced in your room. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. Kind Regards, Kim

Well located

Kim Couples - 02/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

This is the 3rd time I have stayed here, and each time the experience is more and more disappointing. The room had no window, no natural light. The buffet breakfast was substituted to a off the menu where you were expected to pay for any extras, and allowed for 1 drink per person. At this rate we will not be returning.

Kia ora Kim, Thank you for choosing BreakFree on Cashel for your accommodation during your visit to Christchurch and we appreciate your feedback. The Inner Urban Double room is just one of the room types we have available at the Hotel with many of these room types being larger in size and offering a window. We note your comments in regards to breakfast, unfortunately in alert level 2 we are unable to provide a buffet. Kind Regards, Kim

Accomodation was great, the noise at night wasn’t!

Tracy Business - 21/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was fine, price was great but there was very loud music and screaming outside in the middle of the night for a long time. I come up once a month so I asked reception if this was regular and where from as maybe I could stay at a different side of the hotel next time to avoid hearing it. She said there were no noisy music playing pubs nearby. I beg to differ!

Kia ora Tracy, Thank you for choosing Breakfree on Cashel. We are sorry that the Hotel did not meet your expectations and we will definitely take your comments on board. Kind Regards, Kim
