My buddy and I traveled throughout Australia on Holiday. Cairns was our second stop on our trip. We are traveling consultants and did not have any chain hotels to use our Loyalty points. We found Getaway On Grafton through TripAdvisor and chose to stay here for four nights. We had an epic experience! The hotel staff was top notch and... More

Fully furnished, clean and tidy apartments only 10 minutes by car from the airport and a 5 minute walk to the city center. The surrounding area is clean and safe. Cannot go wrong with this accommodation.

I went to Cairns and I booked this hotel. Excellent accommodation, massive apartment, fully furnished, comfortable. Their staff are amazing, kind people, very helpful. They helped me out with all tours, taxis, everything. I do recommend. It's a bit far from the CBD, but its a nice walk.

Great spot & nicely presented & well equipped rooms. We stayed in one of the townhouses .. which was really nice. Balconies are nice .. though ones overlooking the pool seem nicer than those overlooking car park or road out front. All in all a really nice place.

Great location. Very nice and clean accomodation. Nice and quiet. Ground floor balcony was very private. Could not fault this property. Would definitely recommend and would not hesitate to stay again.

We are a family of 4 with 2 girls aged 8 and 12. The location of the apartment is very convenient as it is at a walking distance from the wharf area where there are lots of restaurants, the great public pool next to the sea side, many travel agencies, a catholic church (for our Easter mass) and even the...

We stayed in the townhouse overlooking the pool. The bedrooms have there own ensuite upstairs away from the main living area's downstairs. Perfect set up. You are only walking distance from town and its many conveniences. Wifi worked a treat with great management. There is a youth hostel next door, however it is quiet and unobtrusive. Would happily stay here... More

The accommodation is located in a convenient and central area, with many attractions and other facilities eg shops, casino etc; within walking distance or a short drive. The location itself is central but in a quiet area. There are many walks that can be... More

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.
