Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Good location, no lift at time of stay. Poor signage makes it little more complex finding room. Bedding good and clean the just need to pay more attention to the rest of the room. Scatter pillows dirty with food marking’s all over them. Rewards not enough for money spent.

Dear 723mariuss, Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed some aspects of your stay, including our location. However, I have noted your comments regarding the lift, which is currently being replaced and it will be finalised within a few days. Our team do their best reach out to our arriving guests in advance to make them aware. I am sorry to hear about the attention to detail regarding the scatter pillows and I can confirm that I have shared this with our housekeeping manager to ensure this is raised with our teams and does not reoccur. I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back. Kind Regards Janina Brenton General Manager

Nice staff Comfy beds, spacious room, free laundry and dryer in the room, plus free access to UniSA gym facilities for the fair price! And the locations are close to airport busstop, can’t complain for the service and what’s the hotel can offer! The only downside was our room was bit noisy outside , there was an engine or machine right below our room, and also our room was on the roadside. Be sure to prepare earplug for sleep, otherwise would be hard to sleep.

Rooms are outdated, smelly carpets, balcony door almost falling apart,windows are not sealed properly, people are allowed to smoke on balcony and even with windows closed, the rooms smelt absolutely disgusting. The room wasn't clean enough, with dust everywhere. The noise on a Saturday night is just unbearable. We were on the main street site, apartments below us partied until 5am, yelling screaming. The bar close by also had loud music until 5am. Never again. Paid 350 dollars for a room I could have gotten for 80 in a hostel near by.

Very good for a one night stay. It is a College town so very good for parents or for visitors of the University which is a few steps away. It’s even good for long stay as it includes washer and drier facilities. Close to restaurant and bars. Not luxury but comfortable and very clean.

Great value for money. Spacious, clean appartments. Short walk to Rundle Mall. Staff were so kind and helpful, especially Gary (I think that was his name, sorry!) on reception. Cute cafe with great coffee across the road. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommend.

Break-Free Adelaide is an incredible place to stay. And HIGHLY recommended. All the staff are very supportive, accomodating and friendly at all hours of the day and night. The rooms are very clean, and all facilities are available such as fully an equipped kitchen, laundry & dryer, a spacious lounge with tv, dining area, even a study/work desk and beautiful view from the balconies. The location is in great proximity to everything you need. Visited Adelaide during a family emergency - endless walking trips back and fourth to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, each time you leave and/or return staff are friendly to have a chat and greet you. Staff are quick to find a solution to any query which is extremely helpful. Thank you Break-Free Adelaide for making a solo emergency trip, pregnant and with 2 young children so smooth and comfortable.
