I love the large size of the appartments, the fabulous views over Trinity Inlet, the proximity to the Night Markets & the Esplanade Food District. But my favourite feature is the Spa, with it’s curved window looking out over the inlet. I’m a regular visitor & I will be back. My only criticism is the Wall Clock was stopped. But a new battery will cure that

Once we finally arrived at the entrance on Abbott St we were fine. Wot If needs to change the address from Esplanade to Abbott St on its web page. We arrived at BreakFree on the Esplanade on time but couldn't get in. There was a sign for afterhours but not for those on time. I had to bring up the email to get a phone number. The Esplanade entrance needs a sign to inform new guest where to find the Abbott entrance. Once we were in and settled the establishment is lovely except no free WiFi.
