    Superb

    Linda and Kevin who manage Getaway on Grafton are absolutely fantastic. Anything you ask would be done. They can arrange all your tours and give you the best rates and advice. We used them for all our tours and were not disappointed. They can even help you with car arrangements or advise how to get around. They make your stay very hospitable and relaxing. If there is anything in the apartments that doesn't work they immediately fix it or replace it...what else could you ask for. Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday. (We stayed here in July holidays)

    The only issue we had was that the pool and spa were not heated, but of course this would not matter in summer.

    Hospitality of management was fantastic. The advice they gave was spot on and guided us to have the best holiday ever. We did not make a move without talking to them first.

    Not a big thing, but heating in the spa would have been nice for night time swimming, but that is the only thing. Otherwise Spa was not a problem though.

    The only thing I liked was the friendly and helpful staff.

    The location right next to a very grotty and dirty backpackers also our room was not very clean and had broken and chipped crockery.

    Fabulous

    The spaciousness of the apartment & the easy walk to the city centre for shopping, restaurants & cinemas.

    We had an apartment near the street & next door to the backpacker hotel, so it was a little noisier than we would have liked in the evening.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very nice and helpful. We liked having two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The hotel was only 10 minutes from the ocean and 15 minutes from the centrla train station.

    There is a unattractive backpackers hotel next door and they were fairly noisy in the evenings.

    I wish the pool was heated in winter time.

    Fabulous

    Really nice informative staff. Thye could not have been more helpfull and seemed really happy to greet us and settle us in. Great pool, nice feel to the place, nice gardens. We had a really great time in Cairns and that was in part due to the great hotel. Cheers.

    Being from the south, we felt the heat but were unable to have the doors and windows open with fans on to get some fresh air but no insect screens were fitted. The only option was to use the air cond all the time and we were not happy with that its so wastefull. We would have been happy to have fresh air and fans but the mozzies were a big issue for us so doors had to be kept shut.

    Our apartment at Getway was really spacious and well appointed we were very comfortable. It was located an easy walk to the Esplanade and had bus stops virtually right outside that could get you to any of the shopping centres, northern beaches or just into Cairns Central.
