My family of four (three adults and one 2 year old) have just returned from our 5 day stay at Mowbray by the Sea in a two bedroom apartment and enjoyed it very much. The apartment has two large bathrooms with lots of fluffy white towels and small tubes of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The kitchen is a good... More

Andrew is super nice and very accommodating as is his wife. I mostly dealt with Andrew. We are from the US and called & emailed Andrew about setting up a shuttle to pick up us from the airport & tours to the Great Barrier Reef & Daintree. Andrew response was always "I'll take care of that". He not only took... More

We had a wonderful break in Port Douglas mainly thanks to the terrific hospitality extended by Andrew & Melissa. It's an incredible location - just 100m to the beach and only 100m to the Main Street in PD. Our room had a terrific balcony that we spent plenty of time sitting on. The property is clean, well maintained and the... More

The resident managers are so helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Very well maintained. Facilities are great. Location is perfect. Peaceful yet close enough to walk to town for dinner or shopping. Port Douglas SLSC across the road, great for lunch or dinner. Beaches cafe on the corner for breakfast or just a great coffee

The decor is very dated, the reception desk is rarely attended. The people are lovely that work here. It would be nice if cleaners emptied bins and made beds everyday. I wouldn't recommend to friends or stay here again.

Thanks for taking the time to complete your review. We stand by the quality of our apartments as being some of the best four star units in Port Douglas. Being a small family business the only time the reception is unattended is when we are cleaning the rooms or attending to the maintenance of the premises. During this time though... More

We had a wonderful stay at The Mowbray. Andrew, Melissa and Brooklyn were amazing hosts, nothing was a problem. The apartments were clean and tidy with a great balcony in the front which added an extra room to the already spacious area. All the units opened onto the pool which was warm and large enough (25m ) to have a... More

We have just spent 2 weeks here, our second visit in as many years. Last year the place was under administration and we had a number of issues. A big difference this time. Our apartment was on the ground floor which was much easier for us (two older couples) and we had our own direct access to the street. It... More
