Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel's Favourite
Pros - very short walk from best part of the beach, close to town so you can walk to restaurants, large apartments, quiet, ok value for Port Douglas, pool is nice. Our apartment had a big comfy balcony. Cons - the 2 bedroom we had needed a reno and new furniture. General - (this isnt about the hotel) the beach was closed the whole week were there due to winds, even though its always windy at Port Douglas. So whoever in the council makes these stupid decisions needs to be sacked as the waves were small and there was a roped off shallow area where people should have been allowed to swim, noting it was school holidays so there were plenty of grumpy kids (and parents) !!!

Well located, nice pool but we expected a lot more for the price we paid. The lounge suite was uncomfortable (it was a cheap outdoor setting), the apartment was dated - stained carpet, patchy tiling, dusty fans and wardrobes, large areas of paint chipped off skirting boards etc. Most disappointing was the cheapskate and annoying lack of supplies - one tiny sachet of dishwasher powder for a 4 night stay, insufficient loo paper and toiletries. No tea towel, super thin and stained bath and pool towels. It would be really easy to fix these issues.

Comfie beds and pillows. 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, super clean. We didn't use the pool as 4 mile beach and the swim net area is less than 100ms down the road. Easy 10 minute walk into town or to the marina. Well located

Highly recommend - great two bedroom apartment each bedroom has its own large ensuite bathroom. The water pressure and instant hot water is amazing as new fixtures. This apartment is CLEAN! I cannot fault it I even feel comfortable walking bare foot on the carpet! They have thought of everything. We found olive oil, soy sauce, salt, canola oil, coffee, sugar. Tea milk. Dishwasher powder, washing machine liquid. Washer and dryer. One queen bed and two singles and I’m pretty sure the couches are fold out beds. Bothe bedrooms have aircon and ceiling fans and there is a third air con in the lounge area. Both bedrooms have large wardrobes. A good selection of pillows and comfy mattress. Literally a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach right Out front of the nets and a 5 minute walk into town. Quiet. Large veranda with an outdoor table and chairs as well as two sun beds. Foxtel TV. Internet is free and GOOD! Pool is lovely and enough sun beds for the space but you may need to sit at the BBQ area if busy. When we arrived the aircon was on, TV on and ready, kettle filled. We’ll appointed kitchen with everything you need. We will absolutely be back. Did I mention how clean it is? I was in a two bedroom apartment 7. Underground parking and on street parking.

The apartment everything sets up as your need and the front pool is lovely. The four miles beach only a minute to walk and all restaurants are very close by. I highly recommend and will definitely come back if we return to Port Douglas. Thanks Martin.

A very spacious, comfortable and clean room! We arrived to a precooled room which was lovely as the temperature was a balmy 32 degrees with high humidity! A bit of a culture shock to Tassie visitors! The unit was well equipped, the beds comfortable and the ensuites were a good size. The sliding doors to the bathroom could do with a little maintenance as they were hard to slide open and close but that is a very minor detail! We loved the balcony area and the birdlife that lived in the trees- there was always a choir of song! The pool was lovely, and the hotel is located very centrally to Macrossan St and the Marina area. We walked everywhere. We would highly recommend Mowbray, especially for families with older kids!

Highly recommend this excellent holiday spot for a relaxing and easy stay in Port Douglas. Martin and Theresa are wonderful hosts with every little detail taken care of. Clean, comfortable and spacious apartment with large balcony. Pool is spotless and water is warm. Never feels crowded. Across the road from the beach and SLSC, short walk to restaurants and shops. Perfect for families. Can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic location and spacious rooms. Our family of four (including two kids 8 and 6) stayed here in June 2022 for ten days. The location is amazing; a very short walk to the main shopping strip and an even shorter walk to Four Mile Beach We received a text the day before our arrival confirming our check-in time an we were warmly welcomed at check-in. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Each main room has air conditioning, with the bedrooms configured as a king bed and two singles beds. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. The kitchen has everything we needed to cook meals for four and included a large fridge The smart TV with Netflix, iView, etc kept the kids entertained after a long day at the beach! Highly recommended and we’ll definitely be back The heated swimming pool was welcome in the winter and we spent hours playing in it
