Accomodation was satisfactory but the Townhouse we stayed in is in dire need of renovation.Position wise was excellent. Short stroll to the best eatery in Cairns. The Cock and Bull. Loved it. Short enjoyable walk to the shops and night Market. Plenty to see.

My son and I had a lovely week in Cairns staying at the Getaway on Grafton which is centrally located but not too close to the hubbub. Friendly and accommodating staff. Apartment was comfortable like an oasis to return to after a long day enjoying day trips to the reef,the Daintree and Kuranda.

The price was excellent for a spacious townhouse with a kitchen and laundry. They also have a pool and spa which were... More

Fantastic property with modern and very clean apartments, great pool and BBQ area. Plenty of spacious car parks and located within easy reach of the centre of the city. Great for bigger families or groups Managers are very helpful and nothing was to much trouble - would highly recommend this property

Our third visit to Cairns and we chose Getaway on Grafton as we had seen it on our previous visits and it always looked nice! We were not disappointed at all, the two bedroom apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious containing everything you could possibly need for your stay! Beds comfy, great kitchen with everything to be self catering, washer/dryer... More

The hotel rooms and facilities are very good for the price. It is quiet and clean. Great swimming pool. The thing that made us really like this place was the help we got from the staff. They gave advice on what to do around Cairns, found the right boat trips for us and told us what to see on the... More

We can recommend a stay at Getaway on Grafton. Great central location. very clean and lots of space. Staff very friendly. There is a backpacks next door but you would never know. You could not hear anything. We would stay there again on our next trip to Cairns.

Markus and staff were fantastic! The accomodation was perfect for our family holiday with very affordable rates, and everything you could possibly need in the townhouse. I would definitely go back and stay here again. The kids loved the pool, and having the BBQ there meant we could just relax around without the expense of dining out everyday. Situated only... More

Thanks, Marney R, for your review and your compliment. Glad to hear that you made good use of our free BBQ and the kids enjoyed the pool. We hope you will have a chance to visit us again or at least indeed recommend us to your family and friends as a convenient and affordable location for families. Regards, Markus More
