I had a great time staying at the Getaway. My friends and I stayed in an apartment that had room for 5, two and a half bathrooms, two patios, a living room and a fully functioning kitchen. It's located a 10min walk from the Esplanade and a 7min walk from Woolworths, the grocery store. They have a pool and a... More

We stayed 3 nights in a 2-bedroom apartment. I can highly recommend this apartment. The apartment was large, clean, 2 bathrooms and all the kitchen and cleaning facilities you would require during the stay. Location-wise .... it is 10-15mins walk from the main area, which wasn't a problem at all. We arrived after 8pm, and check-in was simple (via a... More

We stayed 7 nights in an apartment and found it to be clean,tidy and well appointed. Everything we needed was provided including a little carton of milk for our cuppas :) The pool was light and sunny from 9am til 3pm then was shaded and very comfortable. The pool area has barbecue facilities but we mostly used the kitchen or... More

We stayed for 7 days in Nov 2016 and enjoyed it immensely. The apartments are close enough to the centre of Cairns to walk to and from but far enough away not to have the noise. The apartments are big. 2 storey and very well equipped. Aircon all over and big beds. The kitchen is very usable and I did... More

We relocated here after booking elsewhere so it was a last minute booking. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly, the apartment was clean and spacious and had everything you would want. Our apartment also had lovely views over the pool. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

My husband and two children recently stayed here for 4 nights, in a 2 bedroom townhouse. After a lot of research I chose the Getaway on Grafton for the end of our Queensland holiday and I'm devastated that we wasted the money. The photos on the website were nothing like real life. The place wasn't clean at all. The showers... More

Although our apartment had everything we needed for our stay, it all felt a little bit tired. The pool area was quite small and shady, with only a handful of sun loungers and chairs. There are no lifts - beware if you have an apartment on an upper floor. All the apartments have 2 bedrooms, but you can book as... More

We stayed 5 nights in a very well-appointed 2 bedroom, two bathroom apartment that was very clean and extremely spacious. Tea, coffee and milk provided. The linen and towels were changed after 3 days. The location was perfect for us. An easy 10 min walk into town or a very inexpensive taxi ride (under $10.00) if we needed. The hosts... More

Stayed for 5 nights, was a little dubious with our 2 bed apartment right next to the back packers but surprisingly the noise wasn't too loud. Apartment was great, spacious, fully equipped & loved how it had ceiling fans and aircon. All reception staff were friendly & super helpful. The free use of a stroller was an awesome bonus for...

We choose to stay here based on the good reviews here and the reasonable price and the good pictures they put on their website. We arrived around 10 am, almost 4 hours ahead of official check in time, the apartment is not looking like to the pictures they have on their web site. It is very old building and not... More

Kevlinco, Manager at Getaway On Grafton, responded to this review

Thank you for your review When booking accommodation with us, guests are sent a confirmation email with check-in time and office hours, requested bedding configuration and estimated time of arrival. It quite clearly states an early arrival does not guarantee an early check-in. We also request an email response to confirm all of the above is understood. This process enables... More
