Reviewed 26 November 2011

We moved here after staying at another apartment complex in Port Douglas, which unfortunately did not come up to our standards. We were so pleased with our spacious well equipped modern apartment with its huge balcony and furniture. No bats to speak of keeping us awake all night and the beautiful 4 mile beach a few steps away.

Yvonne and Chris were very helpful, especially when Quantas airlines were grounded the day before we were due to leave.

Apparently people return time after time to these apartments and we can undersand why.

The pool is not very big but it is pristine and big enough with comfortable furniture to relax in.

The other guests we met were quiet but friendly, which I think is what you want in an appartment block.

I would recommend these apartments if you expect clean, well furnished modern apartments with a four star feel.

Room Tip: We chose room 6, It was at the front of the building but it was quiet and had an open aspect.

We had only booked two weeks previously and knew little about the area but feel lucky to have found this nice, small, family friendly accommodation. It was a few steps to the beach, a few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants and immaculately clean. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was a very comfortable visit. I had checked tripadvisor and this was one of the few accommodations I had seen with no negative reviews at all!

Room Tip: Ground floor has easy access to beach

Just a quick update to my prior review - our family stayed at Mowbray by the Sea in Port Douglas for the 3rd year in a row in July 2011. This time it was as a result of an aborted stay in Mission Beach. Mowbray by the Sea had availability and we were more than happy to drive the 3 and a bit hours north to return to Port Douglas. Chris and Lorna are fabulous - when we turned up, the apartment was even better than we hoped it would be. We've now stayed in 3 different apartments in the complex and all of them are well maintained, beautifully clean on arrival and have everything you need for a short or long stay. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: The apartments facing the park (i.e. south) don't get the hot afternoon sun. Even in July it can...

We moved to this hotel after a terrible few days at another highly rated Port Douglas hotel. After checking into this lovely place, we were very sorry that it took us so long to do so. The ground floor 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean, spacious, well equipped, not to mention well decorated. A huge bonus was the lovely private outdoor area which included a table, fan and small garden.

This hotel has a heated pool and is ideally located near the main street and beach.

We've stayed at Mowbray by the Sea two years running - July 09 & July 10. The rooms are great - home away from home with everything you need on hand. Balcony was great for lazy breakfasts and night time wine and cheese infused relaxation. Swimming pool was great, car parking was good and the management are very helpful. It is in a fabulous location - 100m from the beach and surf club and only 5 minutes into the heart of Macrossan Street. We'd highly recommend Mowbray by the Sea.

Room Tip: Just ask for a better price than what they advert.
