Richard Business - 20/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I've stayed here on many occasions over many years. I have always liked the small rooms and slightly quirky design of the rooms. However I am disappointed that the rooms are not being maintained. On this occasion the previously built in bedside table was missing, the coloured lighting was broken and the air conditioning was hardly working (I reported the last item) . Last time I stayed part of the carpet was continually damp from the shower.

Kia ora Richard, Thank you for choosing BreakFree on Cashel for your accommodation during your visit to Christchurch. Thank you for you taking the time to provide us with your review. We will note your feedback about the maintenance issues your experienced. We have changed the way the coloured lighting works in the rooms and are continuing to upgrade the lighting system as a whole. Kind Regards, Kim

Unfortunately we arrived early evening, and all the parking spaces were taken. But there was a Wilson's carpark around the back of the building. Our stay was very comfortable, warm, clean, and a good price. Will definitely stay there again.

Centrally Located- limited car parks but public car park is available easily, off site.

Mrs B. M. Couples - 16/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Well located , room was pretty small despite upgrading- clean and tidy. Limited parking facility. However, Westpac car park was easily available, the snag is maximum hours you can park with one payment is 8 hours. You have to remember extending the hours on time- can do on line once you have down loaded Pakmate. Over all it was a good value for money in a centrally located hotel

We stay in the most expensive room (still only $150) regularly. This is our 3rd stay this year and received the same great service. The room is always clean and consistent. Special mention to the bar man - sorry we didn't get his name - who is always super friendly and awesome. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Christchurch

Always enjoy staying at BreakFree on Cashel, the location is amazing, love how you can just walk into the city centre and enjoy all the different restaurants, bars and shops. Friendly staff and never any hassle to check-in. We did however miss out on a park as we had our vehicle, but the lovely lady told us where we could park and not have to worry about paying as it was the weekend, and we managed to get a carpark for the next night with the hotel. Bed was super comfy, room has all you need for a pleasant stay. One thing I'd love to see changed is the limit on wifi....please give the people unlimited like most hotels do, that would be awesome!

Kia ora Shane and Cherayn, Thank you for choosing BreakFree on Cashel for your accommodation during your visit to Christchurch and we appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately car parking is subject to availability and is not a service we can take prebookings for. We do appreciate your comments and hope to welcome you back soon. Kind Regards, Kim

Pat K. Business - 12/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good location however not as good an experience as last time I stayed there. I hope these comments are helpful. 1. I had no control over the aircon other than temperature so it roared away the whole time, very noisy and draughty. I did ask the receptionist for advice and she said just turn the dial, but that didn't work. On leaving I reported the problem to the (different) receptionist who told me I should have taken the power key out and re-inserted it to reboot the system! 2. There were also no instructions for the wall console (clock etc). I do love the wake-up system and got that working but I suspect a lot more options went unused. 3. Last time I stayed the parking was included. I was surprised to be told $15 a day. However no problem as you have had it tough, but it would be fairer to be told in advance. 4. Maintenance: for longevity of the facility I suggest replacing the seal at the bottom of the shower door. The shower rose was also dodgy though I think I may have fixed that. There has also been significant leakage at the corner of the shower nearest the bed. Not moaning, but important for you to know I think.

Kia ora Patrick, 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 Aircon in your room and the other issues that you have raised. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. Kind Regards, Kim
