We have just returned after a 7 night stay at Mowbray by the Sea, after celebrating our sons 18th birthday. From the moment we were greeted by Andrew and Melissa, we felt very welcomed and knew we had made the right choice for our stay in Port Douglas. Our apartment was very clean and spacious, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,... More

Absolutely loved staying at Mowbray by the Sea. The staff are wonderful and were fantastic in organising our snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef. The apartments are immaculate and very spacious. Super close to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to the shops. I highly recommend staying here.

Greeted by friendly lovely owners, and nice n clean double room n kitchen apartment. Aircon in each room (wow) and a lovely aspect from every window. The main beach was no more than a minutes walk, the main shopping strip about 5 to 7 minutes walk, a 25mt lap pool with extra bits was perfect and even heated to 30degrees... More

Great accommodation. Really lovely, friendly, family run place (under new ownership since Feb 2015). Cannot fault in any way. Place was booked out during our stay, but you'd never know it - always quiet and the pool area often deserted despite it being a beautiful spot. Would not hesitate to come back.

We stayed here in August and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The pool was excellent and the room was well appointed and clean. The location is ideal as it is situated between the beach and the main street and opposite a park. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Port Douglas.

This place is well appointed and well positioned. Access on our ground floor apartment meant we could access out front gate to beach very easily - or to surf club and other restaurants. when other accommodation is i distance from town, this is in a great position and with 2 rooms we fit the whole family.
