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.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and a credit to the cleaning staff. The pool area is gorgeous and a great way to relax and chill on a warm afternoon. I would stay here again anytime I was in the area. There were renovations in progress but it did not detract from our experience.... More

A big thank you to Dave and his fab team for looking after us after being terribly disappointed our 2 bedroom apartment wasn't available. Tori, Raquel and Thomas in the Balcony restaurant were a delight and Gayle and the girls at reception lovely. Can't wait to come back a see the finished result of the reno!

We had lunch on our first day in Cooktown at the hotel and it was delicious, affordable and served promptly by happy, friendly staff. What more could you ask for? The seafood was fresh and the salad was impressive, probably the best we had in far north Queensland which was a surprise after four days dining in Port Douglas.

Although the hotel was torn apart while we were there, I can't wait to see it when it's done. Lots of potential. The pool was beautiful and warm. The atmosphere is charming and the staff went out of their way to be polite and helpful.

We had booked 3 nights at this "resort" hotel but on arrival found it more like a building site. We were also advised that the balcony restaurant was closed and the only breakfast available was room service. We had not been advised of these issues when booking a few days earlier and when we said we were not happy were... More

Located just off the main street it is within easy access to the museum, local walks and green hill look out. The rooms are modern and roomy with balconies. The bar offers outside seating and well priced food and drinks. There is a large pool, rooms are reasonably quiete with air con and fans.
