We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, it was very clean & spacious with comfy beds. We would certainly stay again. Kevin was very helpful & a great tour advisor. he showed us a place to visit on the map not far out of town that was a natural beauty & free to enter, beautiful water falls & swimming holes.

We stayed at this property for 8 days in September. Its a decent complex about 10 mins walk from the main areas so was much quieter than more centrally located Hotels. As mentioned in other reviews it is right next door to the Backpackers Hostel called Asylum but this didnt cause any issues. The complex has a small pool area... More

a bit further away from the core of the CBD than I expected and much more dated than indicated by the pictures. otherwise it was fine, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, great heated pool, lots of tv channels. Also I wasn't aware we wouldn't be getting a daily service, so for the money I don't think it was great value.... More

Two couples Stayed 10 Nights in Ground Floor (because we find it difficult to traverse stairways) - 2BR deluxe townhouse style apartment. Spacious, with ensuites for each BR. Kitchen/Lounge roomy and located adjacent to pool and BBQ area. A little too far for seniors to walk to central city shopping though Taxis very prompt and reasonably priced. Accommodation tariff "reasonable"... More

Getaway on Grafton was a comfortable place to stay. We were upgraded to a Townhouse, which we appreciated for the space. In reviewing an establishment, I always think about whether I would return to it. In this case, no, I wouldn't return. I felt the price tag of $205 a night didn't reflect the quality I expect for that price... More

Stayed in the 2 bedroom townhouse-style apartment; very spacious with ensuites for both bedrooms and nice kitchen/lounge combo downstairs. Looking a little tired and in need of some TLC, but very comfortable and the managers of the site very helpful and informative. A little too far to walk to the Strand, but central enough to be a short drive to... More

Hi guys, the Apartments are great, everything you need is there! The location in Cairns is good, you can easily walk into the city. At night, it was a little bit noisy, because of hooters of the nearby hospital. You have to pay for wifi :-( And even more worse is the bad quality of the Wifi! So if you... More

Nice to have a self contained apartment in Cairns. Problems included the front sliding door lock kept failing so we put a stick of wood in the rail to stop it opening, heaps of stairs and no lift, situated next door to a grungy back packers who enjoy loud drinking games during the night, and location is quite a walk...
