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

I had read some of the reviews on here and was a little apprehensive about our stay. I am pleased to say we really didn't need to be! We had a free upgrade to a Townhouse and it was modern, clean and spacious. It smelt like new carpets so I am going to take an educated guess that the carpets... More

Thanks for your comments. Good to hear that you only trusted the good reviews and were not disappointed. I am sorry to hear that the wifi did drop out a few times. Although we agree with you on the point that holidaying is not about being on the internet all the time, we are constantly trying to improve the wifi... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Getaway. Markus and the other staff members were very helpful and accommodating. The apartment was spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was equipped with all the essentials. It was a perfect location to walk to the esplanade and shopping centers. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony. We would gladly stay... More

Couldn't recommend the getaway more highly. Brilliant value for money. The staff are super helpful, friendly and knowledgable. Our apartment was large and spotlessly clean and refreshingly cool. The whole apartment was well stocked with cooking utensils, towels etc for our stay. The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms large. The washing machine and dryer were better then what... More
