Just a 10min walk along the beach to the highly touristy Palm Cove, this is a quiet, beautiful little sanctuary right across from Deadman's Gully and the lovely Clifton Beach. The rooms are fully equipped, self-contained units, the pool area is peaceful with picnic tables and a barbecue, the palm trees create a beautiful atmosphere, and the staff are just...

This was our second visit to Clifton Palms, now with new owners, and Kerryn was so helpful particularly when we wanted to book a trip to Fitzroy Island at the last minute. It is in such a good position, nice and quiet, close to the beach, yet with a shopping centre just a few minutes walk away, and an easy...

Right from we met Kerryn, we felt welcomed to Clifton Palms. She went out of her way to make sure we had everything we wanted. Lovely motel, contained everything anyone could want. Very clean. A lovely quiet destination not far from the beach or shopping centre. Thanks Kerryn and Robert we will be back some time in the future

Loved Clifton palms. My husband and I enjoyed our time here. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Position perfect, close to beach a small shopping centre is close by but in a lovely quiet area. No noisy traffic. Looking for good value for money and a relaxing holiday then this is the place to stay. Can't wait to go back.

The accommodation is well equipped; WIFI, TV, kitchen utensils, laundry facilities, BBQ. It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The provided towels and bed linen are of excellent quality. The accommodation...

We had the pleasure of staying at Clifton Palms for 4 weeks in June. Everything about our stay was exactly what we were looking for, very near the beach so a lovely walk to Palm Cove cafes in the morning. Our apartment was spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean as were the laundry facilities and beautiful gardens. There is a large...

We decided to stay at Clifton Palms because of the Trip Advisor reviews. A big mistake! We stayed in a unit above the owners. One night during the stay we could not get to sleep due to all the noise from a dinner party (we think). We could hear every word of the guests and their TV blared through our...

Spent 10 nights at the Clifton Palms. It is well located for exploring the region. Close to a good shopping center, the beach and walking distance to Palm Cove shops and restaurants. Kerryn was very helpful and knowledgable about the area and very helpful with booking trips. Units while quite basic are comfortable and well equipped.

So glad we found this place! Was trying to find a reasonably-priced place to spend two nights in the Cairns area and came across this here on Trip Advisor. I am from Minnesota. I had never been to the tropics before. What a great introduction! This place is so cute. We arrived later in the evening but the proprietor, Kerryn,...

I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay and were able to share 'our piece of paradise"! The Northern Beaches of Cairns are such a great location to access all the tours available in Cairns and Far North and yet our property allows our guests a little peace and quiet also. I very much hope to be able...
