We were a family of four and were given the a duplex apartment. The bedrooms which were on the upper floor were exquisite and taste fully decorated. The living room along with the kitchen was on lower floor. The amenities so provided were more than sufficient. One thing which I felt is required in the apartment is that the living... More

We stayed here for a weekend in July. Good location, walked to the esplanade. Spacious apartment. Pool was clean and heated. My only complaint was that the shower in the bathroom was grimy- built up grime, like it hadn't been scrubbed properly for months. This would put me off coming back again.

We stayed here for four nights at the start of a two week Queensland holiday. The apartment was clean and tidy, and well appointed. It was close to the business and restaurant areas, as well as the foreshore. The managers were friendly and helpful, and we could not really fault anything here.

We stayed at Getaway on Grafton as our home base for our Cairns Holiday. We found it to be well located as it was a few blocks from the Esplanade and close to the main roads in and out of Cairns. We asked for a quiet 2 bedroom unit which we got. The unit was well equipped with dishwasher, cooking... More

Booked a 2 bedroom apartment after careful research. Traveled to Cairns with my best friend and we both appreciate having our own rooms and personal space for a 5+ day holiday. On check-in we found the owners to be lovely couple who were very friendly. There are no elevators in the complex, so be sure you can carry your luggage... More

We visited Cairns for a weekend CrossFit competition. Getaway on Grafton provided us with a great place to stay and sleep! Great service, rooms nice and spacious and with our own ensuites. We will be back!

We have previous reviews of Getaway under older user accounts (no longer accessible under Trip Advisor) - so this is not our first review nor our first for Getaway. In fact, we have stayed more times in Cairns than we can count, and despite many other good options in such a vibrant and fun town, Getaway keeps coming back firmly... More

Apartment was great and the pool was excellent. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because the pillows were terrible. Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere central in Cairns. Good for singles, couples and families.

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
