Arrived early as our flight arrived early morning and Karen went out of her way to get us in our room as quick as possible. Room was lovely and clean with a great laundry area. Very good Internet connection. Would highly recommend.

I have nothing but great things to say. I was traveling alone and was looking for somewhere for a little down time. I chose Clifton Palms as it was self contained and a minutes walk to the beach. The 1 bedroom was clean and comfortable and had everything I needed for cooking and such. It's a small property which was...

We had a really good experience at that place. The area is quiet and this makes this place perfect to chill out and rest. The garden is really nice and well maintained. It provides a nice environment; even kangaroos are coming around as well as lots of birds. The location of the place is really good: it is close to...

We were a little worried that we would need a car while staying at the Clifton Palms because of its location half-way between Cairns and Port Douglas but our fears were groundless. Kerryn arranged for airport transportation, all of our excursions (Great Barrier Reef, Daintree, etc.) provided free pick-up/drop-off, a large grocery store and restaurants were within a short stroll,...

Great apartment. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location for beach, rain forest and Great Barrier Reef. Set one block away from the beach and only a 10 minute walk from the more commercialised areas. Will choose to stay here again if we are lucky enough to visit Cairns for a second time.

Great location, short walk to the peaceful Clifton Beach or 10 minutes beach walk to Palm Cove with its beach front cafes and restaurants. Clifton beach shopping centre within 10 minutes easy walk has supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants and car hire. Bus stop on corner giving easy access to Cairns. Friendly and helpful proprietor Kerryn can advise and book tours and...

Efficient admininistration, helpful and generous service. Spotlessly clean apartment, stocked with everything you need (including a small bottle of table salt - a lovely touch and very typical for the attention to detail). All appliances worked - air conditioning, microwave, kettle, internet. Nice gardens, very quiet location and beach is 50m. Excellent value for money.

Place had a lovely homey feel. Only downsides were the people below us felt the need to yell loudly all night, but that is in no way the Hotel's fault & there was a dead Cockroach in the Kitchen.. But it was dead so that is a good sign haha!
