A home away from home
large clean apartment, nice pool area & good location
We were welcomed at check in & had someone assist my elderly mum carry her bags up the stairs. The apartment was well equipped, very clean & spacious. The pool area is lovely although a little cold! It was a bit noisy during the night but the beds were very comfortable so sleeping wasn't really a problem. It felt like a home away from home and it is a great place to base yourself for a Cairns & TNQ holiday. The only small issue is the stairs if you have heavy suitcases or lots of groceries to carry (neither of which we had to worry about).

customer service- staff is very helpful, good location and good room size
staff is really helpful and the service is really good; location is not bad, 10 mins walking to shopping centre and 15 mins walking to CBD, room is clean but the furnitures are bit old, especially the wardrobe, not sure why, the wardrobe keep making noise , and the noise is really loud in the night.

Conscientious Laziness
Security, Parking, Departing
Our stay was disappointing. I write my review based on over 20 years in hospitality, working in 5 star establishments and having achieved a Swiss Diploma in Hotel Management. When we arrived the room was dirty - dust on the ceiling, hair in the bathroom, sand and dirt between the couch seat and under the glass table, bird droppings on both balconies and outside furniture, gouges in the lounge walls and chipped glasses to drink from. Then I had to remake all the beds as housekeeping have a unique method to sheet placement and tucking in. Next, Reception failed to resolve, if they looked at all, problems we had with our tv and remote. If staying please remember to bring dishwashing detergent, soap, garbage bags, beach towels, clothes washing powder and cleaning clothes - Reception are happy to charge you for any and all. Remember to take your own garbage to the skip bin as they cannot and when checking out leave nothing or expect a $55.00 rubbish removal charge. The establishment is tired and although has received accolades in the past couple of years it is a far cry from its former grandeur and unfortunately whoever attained these accolades must no longer work their. They need to revise their tariff and bring it more in line with reality of building. The building has much potential and with maintenance and proper cleaning could return to its former glory. The positives we found were: Security, location and parking. The rest was a disappointment so shame on you Getaway on Grafton.

Great value stay in Cairns
Nice and clean room, large apartment and friendly staff
We were really pleased with the accommodation at Getaway on Grafton. Thought it was great value for money and the owner / manager was really helpful in booking our trip to the reef and recommending places to go and eat. The only thing I could find fault with was that the dishwasher smelt a bit as it hadn't been used for a while.

Good Service
Nice Staff, big room, quiet location
Not sure the taxi drive's problem or not, we can find the hotel when arrived. We lived in G/F (which is not what we requested) but the room is large and clean. Furniture are a bit old. You can walk to the supermarket but a bit far from City Centre (around 15 mins walk) Staffs are nice and helpful, they assisted us a lot during the stay.
