This was my first time in Cooktown and I did expect a bit more! The sovereign is a lovely clean place to stay, but there is not much to do. Glad I can say I have been to Cooktown! And I saw their local market in the Main Street on Saturday.

We had a lovely time in this hotel. The room was really good and the kids loved the pool. The food was good and the reception staff were really helpful. It was a little on the expensive side though. Would stay again though.

This hotel is well located in Charlotte street. Our room, located on the top floor of the accommodation building was light, airy and spacious. The staff, warm and hospitable. This is a hotel with a difference, beautiful pool, restaurants and close to local sights. Cook town is unspoilt, set in magnificent natural surrounds. Great seafood, and a wonderful French patisserie... More

The property is well-located as other reviewers have said but unless you don't mind feeling as though you are a bit underground do not book a 'resort room'. There is no view and you look out up to the side of the pool. Perfectly nice room but the tiled floor of the shower has no slope or barrier to steer... More

Had a great stay at the sovereign. Looks like they have just done some big renovations. The rooms were nice, modern and large, had a nice water view. Was great food in the bar and loved the $15 parma!

My husband and I stayed one night in this very clean hotel. Pool great, outlook from front deluxe rooms brilliant, furnishings are attractive, I couldnt really fault this place apart from the noise that rose from the drinkers in the bar attached to the resort. We were given an upgrade to this lovely room which had a very modern bathroom... More

Visits over a number of years have proven the Sovereign's consistent standard of great accommodation and helpful staff. Mel has been wonderful with assisting with car hire and accommodation arrangements.

First stay and very pleased. Rooms are neat, mini bar stocked and beautiful hot showers and fluffy towels. Food is great and wine list is excellent and well priced. Great location, within walking distance of nearly all points of interest.
