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

Stayed in Mowbray in May as we have done for the last few years and oh the difference this year. The new hosts Andrew and Melissa were so friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay the best it could be. Mowbray is in a fabulous position especially if you want to be near the beach (and who from... More

There are a lot of big resorts to stay in Port Douglas but if you want something more boutique with the ideal location and good value for money - book Mowbray By The Sea. It's super close to the beach and a 5 min walk to all the shops, all apartments are the same, they're spacious, comfortable and good quality.... More
