Budget accomodation
location to the beach, good bed, outdoor area for guests
The dishes/cups were dirty and the kitchen cupboards needed a clean. The toilet pan was full of cracks. The laundry/bathroom was badly in need of updating.

Far but Value for Money Hotel
Staff friendliness, Value for Money, Spacious Rooms
To be honest, it is a bit far. It is 25 min drive to Cairns city center. If you are ok with that, it is pretty good value for money. The place is very quiet and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite spacious with a built-in kitchen and decorated with many cute animal photos and sculptures. Will definitely consider staying here again.

Countryside living.
1.) Friendly and helpful staff; 2.) Kitchen is good; 3.) Quiet Environment
It is far away from the airport, but I have rent a car with GPS and it is not a big problem for me. I enjoy to live in clifton sand beacause its quiet environment and close to the beach. There is no air-con at bedroom, so i need to open the door and turn on the air-con at dinning room with maximum fan. At last, clifton sand is a very good hotel in my Aust. travel.

Nice apartment, quit place, the bus stop outside
The bus stop directly outside, good apartment with kitchen and friendly and helpful staff
Our visit was really good and Linda was really helpful and kind. The apartment had everything we needed, the kitchen was nice, the bed was very comfortable. We really liked that we had a balcony too. Wi-fi was available in the "bbq-area", not in our rooms, but it wasn't a problem for us. The bus into Cairns city was easy to catch, just a few metres from our apartment. Linda was helpful and she can book a lot of trips while you are in Cairns. We also booked an airport transfer with her. The grocery store and a pharmacy is 10 minutes walk away, you can also take the bus. We really liked this place and we would definitely come back.

Peaceful and relaxed .
the room , value and staff friendliness .
Our stay at Clifton Sands Apartments was the best . Quiet location, very helpful and friendly staff and all tours booked without fuss . A car was handier than using the bus service because of the freedom it gave you . 10 out of 10 .
