So with a conference booked at almost the last minute we managed to secure a two bedroom apartment at Getaway on Grafton for $195 per night which, while not cheap, was not overly priced either. The location is very good, about 10 mins from the centre of town and three blocks to the waterfront. Its certainly not in the heart... More

What a great place to stay. We found your accommodation extremely clean, quiet, tidy, well maintained inside and out. There was everything you could need in the apartment and the kids loved the pool. The staff were great, nothing was a problem for them. They made every effort to book our tours for us and made us feel very welcome.... More

We used the apartment as a base for excursions from Cairns. Well appointed and conveniently located these apartments are ideal for families. The staff were helpful and the out of hours check-in procedure was straightforward and well communicated in advance. Only 2 slight niggles: whilst superficially clean, the apartment could do with a deep clean; don't look too closely! Next... More

There were 4 of us in a 2 bedroom unit. It was very spacious with 2 large bathrooms and living area. Location was easy walking distance to the shops and esplanade. Unit was clean and staff helpful and friendly.

rooms very clean and spacious. Love that they have ceiling fans. Friendly efficient service. Close handy to everything so could walk everywhere. Appreciated the under cover parking. Pool looked lovely but was a bit too cool to give it a try. Office staff very helpful. Gardens neat and tidy and reflected the tropical climate. Would highly recommend to anyone looking... More

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.
