Booked a unit online based on previous Tripadvisor reviews - pleased to report it was excellent and Linda the owner / Manager was indeed friendly and very helpful during my week's stay. I had an updated unit on top floor (Unit 13) which was very clean and comfortable with everything I needed including the coffee plunger! Balcony with sea views... More

Our family stayed at Clifton over New Year. We ended up in Cairns, as we would have spent the same amount (airfares and accommodation) on accommodation only in Southern NSW. So there you go: a point extra for Clifton Sands, quite affordable. Being a bit old fashioned, I’ve decided to book over the phone. Great experiences, from get go. I’ve... More

We stayed at this little gem for a long weekend and to put it simply, it was fantastic. Linda the manager was a perfect host and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There was a great BBQ area with 2 BBQs and a fantastic pool. The location was superb, within... More

The accommodation is clean and the bedlinen beautiful. The type you would get in a top class hotel. . Bathroom is rather dated, but to have a washing machine and fully equipped kitchen was a real bonus. It is also walking distance from a lovely beach. Linda could not have been more helpful when had an urgent medical problem. I... More

Hi Janet, hope you are safe home now, thank goodness for Grandma's! Thanks for your great review. I hope our little 'emergency' is doing better now - he will go down as our first Clifton Sands baby. See you again on your next trip Down Under. More

We stayed for ten days in December 2013. The place is quiet, clean and close to the beach. Public transport is just few minutes walking; buses go to Cairns and to Northern beaches with relatively good frequency (every 30 min). . Linda is very helpful and friendly. We recommend this hotel.

We chose Clifton Sands for its location , right next to the sea and perfectly placed for the northern beaches , quiet and relaxing but with a friendly atmosphere..The apartment was perfectly appointed , we had everything we needed and it was spotlessly clean. The view directly over the palm fringed beach and we could sit watching the wonderful little... More

This is an older property but relatively clean and well maintained. The manager, Linda is friendly and very attentive and helpful. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which we got online for a discounted rate. The kitchen was quite old and should probably be updated. The bench top was scorched and the drawers were very sticky and difficult to open... More

Nice comfortable apartments and very affordable for families. 1 block from the beach and you can see the ocean from your balcony even on the ground floor. Linda the manager was very friendly and helpful. Its a bit of a drive from Cairns but the quiet relaxed area makes up for it.
